Question about Coleman 2 Burner Propane Stove 5430E700

1 Answer

Flames shooting up from back of Coleman stove.

I have a 2-burner Coleman propane stove. When I tried it this summer, flames were coming up the back of the stove and I could hear the sound of a leak so I shut it off quickly. I tried a different propane tank and the same thing happended. I took off the top to have a look and I can't see any parts missing. Any suggestions as to what is going on? It is possible it was dropped. It is about 8 years old. Is it worth trying to repair? Thanks for any suggestions.

Buy a new one. do not attempt to use this one again. There could be a pin hole in the propane lines or just a small crack. If you can hear it then there's a problem.

However if you really want to fix this one try putting water on the propane lines and then putting on a new tank and opening the valve. DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE. where there are bubbles there is your leak. When you find it seal it with a Flame retardent sealent or clamp the line. Also I believe Lowe's sells parts that may work. just find out which line is leaking and replace the whole line.

I highly recommend just buying a new one and destroying the old one. DO NOT just throw it away please. Some one out there will grab it and try and use it. They will find out the hard way and maybe get hurt badly themselves or hurt someone else. Just imagine the guy who grabs it and goes camping with his family. Him and his son start it up. the son is right next to the unit. The guy fires it up and boom the son gets burned. Is it just me or would you feel bad if you knew this guy. I have seen it first hand. trust me it sucks. A buddy of mine did this and his son was in hospital for 3 days. he said he will never do that again.

So for safety sake please just buy the new one. don't take unnessecary risks if you don't have too.

Oven burner flame is low


0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL

Dirty flames


You have a problem with either air supply or with the burner getting dirty.  Clean out throughly with solvent type cleaners...no abrasives.  You should only have blue flames.
