Coleman Presidential II Heater won't come on

I have a 1977 Mobile home with a Coleman Presidential II heater. The pilot light comes on but nothing else comes on. I just over hauled the enter system and oiled the motor... put it all back together and it does not fire up.

You should have 3 wires going to the gas valve - MV(mainvalve), PV(pilot valve) and MV/PV (or Common). Make sure all of these are properly wired and tight.
You also may have a dirty FLAME SENSOR on your pilot/ignitor assembly. You may need to remove the pilot tube and the pilot assembly to clean the sensor with sandpaper.
Be careful not to damage any parts while cleaning them. Be careful not to crossthread the gas line when re-installing it.

What is the correct way to light a Coleman Presidential heater?


The older Coleman Presidentials had a screw-cap with mica in the center. You unscrewed the cap and used a telescoping match holder to reach in to the thermocouple/pilot light and lit it once you twisted the gas control to the 'pilot' position and depressed the controls button or lever. I don't know the specifics on the newer Preidentials Chester, but it has to be similar.

Coleman presidential II furnace blower on and off


Sounds like the flame sensor. But it could be the thermostat. Is the furnace standing pilot or electronic spark or hot surface ignition. I would start by checking thermostat. Turn power off to furnace take thermostat off wall and take wires marked r & w and connect them together. Turn power back on if furnace works then change out thermostat.Most eclectronic ignition Furnaces have a flam sensor, You could take flame sensor out and clean it up with steel wool or wire brush. If you need anymore help just reply back .

Coleman Presidential II mobile home furnace. When burner lights the blower cycles on and off instead of blowing constant through burner cycle.


Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.
