SOURCE: 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.

I have the Coleman Presidential Heater in a 1976 travel trailer and the pilot light/gas unit has broken off and I need to know where can I find an NEW ENTIRE HEATER to replace it? Thank you


They are pretty standard... get the old one OUT...
Take it to the hardware store and have the STAFF there help you do a STARE & COMPARE).

Be careful not to overtighten the coupler when re-installing

How do you light a Coleman catalytic heater


This is "My way" I have gotten them to run in emergency type situation, if the electric element wont get it hot enough, I use a small pencil torch or turbo torch and briefly heat an area the size of a siver dollar or lesss maybe quarter if small, geherally in center if round or low to mid if wall maunted and square, this sis not protocol and shouldnt be done indoors with everything shut! at your risk!!! I cannot say do that , I do it, but it will flash a bit and roll out a bit but its ok once going they go all night in my experience, 1/2 wil burn offf the dust etc that held em back some ned new platinum pad.

I'd like suggestions about how to disassemble the catalytic housing from the attached base plate. It appears that the connection is a press fit.


THESE DEVICES ARE NOT USER SERVICEABLE. They are dangerous enough without user intervention, that's why no reputable HVAC company will touch one. Contact Coleman or throw it away.

My Dyna GLo kerosene heater has excessive smoke and yellow flame


I'm wondering the same
Should a duraheat, etc., cylindrical convetion heater's flame be bright yellow, blue , or what? With the old wick the flame was blue, with the catalytic converter glowing red hot. Now with the new wick, I can't even see the CC, because the flame burns a bright yellow. Also I have to really fine tune it now. A wee bit too high, I get smoke and soot. A wee bit too low, same...smoke and possibly flame out.

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.
