SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: I have a dual fuel,

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

How to change the battery for my 4345 coleman lanterne


There are two adapters for that lantern; one for the house and one for 12volt. You simply connect one of the adapters and it will power the lamp and also charge it. Those two adapters came with the lamp; if you don't have them you can contact Coleman to purchase replacements.

I cant get any petrol to pump into the mantles


If the petrol doesn't come through first check that you have enough in the tank. If the tank is not full enough it won't come through. If it still fails to come through it's likely that the generator is blocked. This is the tube which the mantle sits on and it has a very narrow opening to force the petrol to convert to vapour when it's warm. Try heating it for a while and it may clear it. Otherwise you'll need to buy a new generator.

Note: while the dual fuel lanterns can burn petrol you should be aware that it gives off poisonous fumes, like cars did before they had catalytic converters. The lantern should not be used indoors with petrol. They are safe with coleman fuel. If you live in the USA, Coleman fuel is cheap but if you're in Europe it's much too expensive. Rather than buying a new generator, if you live in Europe, you could buy a parafin burning lantern like the Petromax 500 available from http://www.pelam.de/index.php?cPath=28_31&language=en&gclid=CIOe46DQnqYCFQkf4QodQxz2Zg
and other sites, or you can pick up second hand Optimus lanterns on Ebay. Both burn parafin, though they need to be primed, and provide at least as much light as the Coleman.

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 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.

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.
