Question about Coleman Cable Coleman Twomantle Dual Fuel Powerhouse Lantern ()

Open Question

Coleman pressure doesnt relieve

I've dismanteled, but still the pressure remains fixed (cannot pump any more without pushback). When I have the first section in the base; and the valve is open (or without the knob installedI just pushing down on the exposed gidget) I get a very small gurgle of escaped air/fuel (I've emptied the can before starting). Behaves the same whether fully assembled, or just down to that first pipe. How do you release the pressure that's been built up? And more importantly; what could be preventing the pressure from releasing? I thought it would have released when I took the fuel cap off but that doesnt seem to be the case? Thanks!

    I fixed it. It wasnt that there was built up pressure I couldnt relieve; instead it turns out the guide rod that the plunger works on was simply too close to 'closed'. So while i thought it should be open it really wasnt. I backed if off and was immediately able to see it work correctly. So at least I got to assemble and disassemble in case I ever need to a real repair in the future :)

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

Coleman powermate compressor wont start. It has always ran fine. Went out and the tank has no pressure. Everything looks Ok, but it wont start. Doesnt even make a sound. There is power at the plug in. ...


Two main things to check are the motor circuit breaker and pressure switch. Without knowing your model number I don't know exactly where to tell you to look but somewhere on the electric motor, or plastic housing if it's remotely mounted, there should be a reset switch/button. They are usually red or white, sometimes black. Push it in and see if the motor works. If the breaker keeps popping off there is something making the motor work too hard like bad bearings in the motor or pump, piston/cylinder issues, etc. To check the pressure switch, unplug the cord or turn off the circuit breaker. Remove the cover on the pressure switch and find the wires from the cord and motor. You can jump them on the switch (black to black & white to white) or disconnect them and connect the two black wires together and two white wires together. Turn on the power and if the motor turns on it's the switch if not it may be that your motor is burnt up inside. Don't let it continue to run like this because it will overfill the tank to dangerous levels without the pressure switch wired in.

I've been having trouble with my 95 Deville. It stalls when l'm on the road sometimes and now I can't get it started. I've had it checked at several places and no one can find the problem....


I had a Cadillac under warrantee & had to tell the
dealer what to do,so you know my feelings about them

I suspect the fuel pump failed

The pump running doesn't tell you anything

A pressure gauge on the shrader valve, on the
engine will be a good start & you could drive it
with the gauge taped to the windshield

So all these shops & a dealer,just told you to go home
they don't care? Sadly I know the routine

No you have to make sure your just looking for fuel &
not a bad crank sensor etc. If you get no crank signal
the fuel pump will time out after 10 seconds or whatever

You have to find the right shop,apparently not an easy
feat in your area.

Some vehicles need an oil pressure switch to actuate
the fuel pump

I am just throwing out generic suggestions here,not nec
your cars systems

I have a coleman 228e gas latern that seems to be loosing pressure and the light dims quickly. i can't find schematics to rebuild it


first thing,maybee you have a smal hole in the burning pocket (if so change the pockets). if not, you migth loose pressure because the o rings of the pump are dryed out. you need to open the pump,lubricate it and replace it. to open the pump, there is a little metal handle to this pump, slowly open it by pulling one side out and the other side of it after. then you should have to unscrew the entire pump out of the gas canister, lubricate everything that is made out of rubber whit vaseline and rescrew it back in the same order you've found it. if this does'nt work, you need to clean the entire conduct system of your lantern, you can do that whit naphta, just soak it in for 2 or 3 hour (do that outside for safety, really) and let it dry, then try again, if its not working, you migth have to clean it manually

I have a 24 gallon. motor starts and pumps but it takes forever to fill and the pressure comming out cannot be regulated


Nothing makes me grunt like "Tim the Tool Man"more than having a air tool in my hand." More Power!" The first (andonly) compressor I ever bought was used and failed to build up pressure. I hadlittle idea how it worked. Anyone with a little mechanical knowledge can workthrough it with the parts manual. The. Coleman Powermate Manuals are here. With the parts manual your search will befruitful. Do a internet search for suspect part numbers. You will find suppliers. OneI've used is "Arkansas Outdoor Power Equipment" They have many parts list for you to dig through. The odds are there is a "Tool Supply and/or Repair" in your area where you can take your defective part.

Diagnostics: After you let it pump for a couple minutes turn it off and listenfor leakage.Listen quick and close. If it is leaking bad it may only be obvious for a couple seconds.

Lines and connections can leak. The Regulator (adjustable knob) can leakinside. The "Pressure Switch" can leak (usually at the valve bleeder). If it's under pressure it canleak. All leaks must be fixed. All these parts can be rebuilt or replaced. The "PressureSwitch" controls at what (low) pressurethe compressor kicks on and what (high) pressure it stops compressing.A compressor that pumps and fails to build up the pressureis leaking air as it pumps. Watch the gauges as it pumps. Does it reach acertain pressure and then no higher? If you do not hear leakage when it is offbut it fails to build up 80~90 psi in a reasonable amount of time it is quietlikely it is leaking at the piston as it pumps. A (piston assy, O Ring, and cylinder)repair kits is available online. Or you can check with local "Toolsservice/sales" stores for parts.

Remember a dusty environment requires the filter element becleaned more frequently. Run it without a filter and you'll be replacing thepiston assy sooner.
Repairing it yourself is much more manly (and less expensive) than replacing it

WARNING
Highly flammable mixtures are always present in any fuel related component. Smoking or carrying lighted tobacco or an open flame of any type may ignite the flammable mixtures.

Fuel system pressure must be relieved before working on or disconnecting any of the fuel lines, fuel tubes, or fuel system components. Failure to do so may result in accidental spraying of fuel, personal injury, or a fire hazard.

No pressure in my power washer


the problem is that the pump is manufactured with a cheap plastic gear inside the pump which wears out relatively quickly because A: its cheap plastic riding against steel gears and B: they used a very thin oil instead of heavy grease to lubricate the gearbox. Soulution: get a new pump because this one is junk.
