The clip needs to go on with the "clicker" to the left as you look at the valve head on..

This is an excellent reference with lots of pictures etc., it does not give the prices, however.

You can check Ebay for completed prices if you need an idea of value.

I have not found a book yet with accurate values on Coleman lanterns.

SOURCE: how to light coleman lantern

Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.

I have a dual fuel, two mantles, coleman lantern. I have changed the mantles several times and they keep getting holes almost every time i light the lantern.


Make sure that the vapourised fuel is coming through the mantle before lighting up. You should hear a hissing sound when the flame adjusting lever is turned to high. If not it is possible that the generator is clogged up and that vapourised fuel is not getting through to the mantle. So when you light up you are essentially just burning the mantle. If the generator is knackered it will need to be replaced. One way to check it to remove the generator, primed the tank and turn the valve on. If fuel spurts out when the generator is removed (DON'T LIGHT IT U)P THOUGH) but there is no hissing sound when the generator is intact then it is a sure sign that the generator is clogged up. In the UK a replacement generator should set you back £10-15. Hope this helps, Bandit

What fuel does my 335 lantern run on pat no 1969 globe 4,mantle 999 generator 63 0n bottom fuel tank has a no 937416 and year 1969 any information would be great


happytimes17-

This lantern is designed to run on gasoline, but will work best with white gas, also generically known as "coleman fuel" in many areas. White gas is in fact a more pure form of gasoline, without many of the fine particulates and impure distillates found in automotive gasoline.

Most hardware stores and sporting goods stores carry Coleman or other brands of white gas.

Hope this helps.

I have a coleman 220k lantern. I can pump it up but it doesn't seem to get any fuel to the mantels. I have read about a generator but what is it and what does it do?


Hello, W/D here.
The generator is the small brass tube located close to the mantles. Here's how the lantern works: You pump it up until you get a decent pressure, or your thumb falls off, whichever occurs first. Next, you turn the main knob to the lighting position, which is usually marked as a 1/4 turn to the right. Then, you manipulate the small valve in between the mantles until you hear a gas flow. Turn the valve until the gas flow is lessened, then light the mantles. Adjust the small valve to get the mantles glowing. Re-pump up the main tank, and close the internal stem valve by rotating the plunger in a clockwise manner. Open the main gas knob to the run position, or fully, depending on your model. Adjust the gas flow at the small valve to keep the gas from flaring up at the mantles.
The heat from the mantles heats the generator, which atomizes the gas, and maintains pressure on the tank via the return tubing. As long as the mantles are heating, the length of time between tank pumpings is greatly extended, but usually not eliminated completely.
Best regards, --W/D--

Acts like a check valve is stuck open below the plunger assembly. It lets all the pressure out while im trying to pump it up..is this something i can fix? the lantern is relatively new.


It sounds like you are correct. While I don't know much about the new lanterns I have worked a lot on older ones. My first suggestion is the easiest. Try putting some 3 in 1 oil on it. First relieve any pressure in the tank- open the valve then slowly loosen the fill cap- watch out as it will likely spill fuel so do this outside Remove the plunger, there is a black plastic piece that holds it in it will come of either by a push and twist, or by removing a little metal bail across it. (you remove the metal bail (small wire loop) by gently pulling it outward with a small pliers.) then the plunger should come right out look into the hole and you will see a check valve at the bottom, try a bit of oil or wd40 on this, let it sit for a while, it may just be rusted open, and will take some time for the oil to work. Make sure it is working well before you light the lantern. you Do Not want this to fail when the lantern is going. Do this outside and away from any flames. Pump it up and see if it can hold pressure overnight

I have a Coleman 228F model lantern. When I go to light it, it barely produces any gas. I have made sure it is pumped adequetly and full of new fuel. I can hear gas coming out very faintly and sometimes...


It's likely that it was left away with fuel in it. This causes gel to form which blocks the fuel getting through. The blockage could be anywhere between the tank and the mantles. The order I would check in are;
  1. The feed tube assembly
  2. The generator
  3. The Burner
It's possible to get these parts from coleman or coleman suppliers. To find which needs replacing you'd need access to another similar lantern and try replacing one at a time. Otherwise it's going to be trial and error or just replace all.

There's a manual which shows the assembly and the order number for parts at http://www.coleman.com/coleman/images/pdf/220f_228F.pdf
I hope this is of some help.

How to fit a mantel to a coleman propane lantern


Hi, First remove the knurl nut on the top. Remove the top and then the glass globe. There are several types of mantels most of which tie with a string that is part of the mantel top. The newer ones have a wire clip in place of the string. Which ever type you had on before you need to remove the old pieces completely. Since the mantles burn to an ash they will disintegrate when touched but if it had the metal clip you need to remove it. Tie or clip the new mantle over the lip on the output orifice being careful with the screen underneath. Replace the glass globe and top, put the nut back on finger tight. Remember that the mantel turns into ash when it burns for the first time so keep the gas low to start it till the mantle forms properly ( in the first minute) Good Luck, this should Fixya!

My old Coleman lantern pump failed. How to replace?


Pull the ends of the retainer clip (handle looking thing on the metal pump cover) out of the holes. The pump can be pulled out at that time. I just replaced a pump, and walmart sells replacement pumps. It was very easy.
