Sounds like your feed tube might be partially plugged, or the orifice, you will need to disassemble the unit and clean it, normally a good dose of high pressure air will clear the tubing and orifice, check the tank too to see if you have any de-bree in it, hope that helps.

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.

Bought kerosene heater in middle of November and seem to have a wick issue. It will not burn properly and makes me wonder if wick was place in upside down. Can I fix it myself?


Trust me you can not install a wick upside down, the bottom of a wick is like an old mop. It has loose wove string and knots, it's job is to **** up fuel. Things to remember about wicks are, they need cleaned some times, I use an old tooth brush and gently brush the wick with it set down low so it does not get damaged. A wick must also sit and soak for at least a half hour before attempting to light it. A good practice to get in to is about every fourth tank of fuel let the heater burn out, this also cleans out the wick and burns off all of the impurities from dirty fuel. Yes you can check your wick but the entire heater does have to be tore down and you should do it only with an empty tank of fuel. This takes time , patience, and a little mechanical know how. When burning out a heater please remove it from your house and let it burn the smell is terrible, if you do this in your house it will smell like a semi truck is running in it.

when you added fuel to the old fuel in the tank, i advice you to take all the fuel out, clean the carb, blow out fuelrestrictors in it and fill up with new fuel and try again. also check the sparkplug, and check if it sparks. good luck.

When I light my Coleman Catalytic Heater, it burns


The wick isnt drawing up any fuel? Does this heater have a primer?

Could the wick be sitting above the fuel inside the tank?

You might just try changing wicks and restarting.

Wont fire


No solution. The electronic control monitors the flame in the heater using a photocell. The ligth intensity and frequency are monitored to insure that the heater getting a good burn and therefore not emitting a high level of toxic gasses.

Causes:
dirty photocell
bad fuel causing bad flame

Rough age 1960s coleman catalitic heater. round green with a domed top.


the coleman uses a vermiculite "sponge" in the dome. after you pump it up and start it, there should be a quarter to half dollar area on the dome that gets saturated with fuel. you light this area then open the valve all the way. the entire dome should glow orange.
