What is the correct globe for the Eveready Model AV425 7 Watt U Tube lantern?


Hi, Check and clean the contacts from the batteries to the lamp.
There maybe corrosion in there. Also the switch maybe bad. Clean and retry. Use a bit of emery paper to clean contacts. good luck.

Hello, I have a number of older Coleman lanterns of the pump style from the 60's or even 50's. The problem is when I light them they all flame vigorously for a couple of minutes before settling...


Hi smcdowell625...
Be sure you are using fresh fuel
You should change the "generator" on each of the lanterns
You should flush and clean out the fuel tank of any dirt,debris, residue,etc.
The link below is to a website to show you the generator...I am sure there are many other websites also.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How to install new mantles?


First of all, make sure your lantern is completely shut off and cooled down, and you are working in a well ventilated area away from any external fuel sources.

You need to remove the screw holding the top cap on, then remove the top and the glass globe.

Then remove the remains of the old mantle(s) and then tie on the new ones in their place.

Then, with the lantern fuel supply turned OFF, carefully light the mantles with a match or lighter and allow them to completely burn to ash and the flame to go out. Do not touch the mantles after this point because they will be very fragile.

Now carefully replace the glass globe and screw the top back on.

Now you can try lighting the lamp normally with the fuel valve in the ON position.

Here are a few links to some short videos on YouTube which demonstrate the mantle replacement process:

I have bought a new 6volt battery for my dolphin but can't work out how to replace it.


The bezel (the circular portion on the front of the flashlight that holds the bulb and lens) will unscrew. The old battery should slide right out.

Hope this helps.

My northstar lantern lites then goes out within 20 to30 seconds. Is it the generator? and if so what # generator do I need? The lantern is about 8 years old and used once or twice a year.


If the problem is that it loses pressure quickly (that is, you have to pump it up again and then it will light briefly), the problem is most likely the cap. It has a rubber gasket underneath that has probably dried out and isn't giving you a good seal. These caps are common replacement items, all the same size, available at Walmart, Kmart, etc. Another likely culprit is old fuel. Many years ago (like 30) the fuel lasted nearly forever. But sometime since then, the fuel has been reformulated making it work better in the short term, but having a limited shelf-life. If your fuel is more than a year or two old, try some new fuel.

How do i open eveready dolphin torch for battery


You need to twist the black bulb end off in the direction of the arrow labeled open. The best way I found was to place the yellow end between my legs to hold it in place.

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!
