Question about Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel 424-700G Grill

1 Answer

Colman stove won't light

I am not a familiar user. It seems that it is not building up pressure. It is the old 2 burner style where the Kerosine tank attaches on the front. I wish there was someone local that I could take it to to look at it and get it working for me.

Here's the way these oldies work:
1. Make sure you've got fresh Coleman fuel or equivalent in the tank.
2. Make sure the cap is tight on the tank.
3. Unscrew the pump knob counterclockwise about 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn.
4. With your thumb covering the hole on the pump, pump the tank about 15-20 times, then screw the pump handle tight clockwise.
Then you can turn the little lever knob to the light position (I believe it is in the up position) and then crack the fuel knob open a bit and attempt a light of the burner with a lit match. As it warms up you can turn the lever to the opposite position to obtain a good flame...
Best to try this before you leave for your trip...

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

Hi I have purchased a 2nd hand Colman 431 stove . The instruction Manual wasn't with it. Looking for instructions Please. Hope you can help. Rob Tyler Toronto


I am not sure what to tell you, other than go to Colman's website for a manual. That will at least give you a parts list if you ever need it. But, these stoves are generally solid and reliable, with few things to know about.

What I do to operate:
  1. Set up stove: lid up and wings out, tank fully pumped (works best if no more than about 2/3 to 3/4 full) and installed with nozzle firmly into the socket above the right burner.
  2. Little lever on left of valve assembly--turn upward. Open valve a little bit to get fuel flowing to burner. Give it just a few seconds then light burner with match or lighter (watch your fingers!). It should light off pretty readily.
  3. Open valve a fair bit (anti-clockwise) and let it burn for up to a minute until the flame changes from yellow to mostly blue, and mostly around the burner and not up in the air. Turn little lever on left of valve downward.
  4. Re-pump tank to maintain pressure.
  5. Use valve knob to adjust flame intensity, and cook away.
  6. To use second burner, the key thing os to remember that it draws from the same valve, so when it is on the main burner goes down a bit.
  7. The knob for the 2nd (left) burner is a little flip-out on the left end of the stove. Open slightly, and light the burner. Only do this after the main (right) burner is burning blue.
  8. Use the main valve (on the tank) to adjut the total fuel flow, and the little handle for the left burner to adjust how much of the total flow goes to the left side. (You cannot burn the left without the right being on.)
  9. Pump as required to maintain pressure.
  10. The only real "part" that you might have to strip or replace is the "generator" which is the tube from the valve across the top of the right burner. The liquid fuel is vaporized in there, and is what needs to get warmed up when you start.

Coleman 424 Dual Fuel -- High, yellow flame


Are you pumping the tank up all the way? I have the same problem if I have too little pressure in the tank. The instructions say pump 35 times. Try pumping 50 or 60 times- that seems to help.

Also, you can't light this one like an old 425. My old stove you could turn the gas on and then take a match neat the burner. For this stove, hold the match near the burner with the gas off and quickly turn it on.

These are two things that seemed to help me with the same problem.

Loss of pressure on Kenmore 16322


I can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong. Remove the tank and open all valves to the grill. Reconnect the tank and turn it on just slightly. Relight the grill.
Ther is a safety device in the tank that needs to be reset. The only way to do it is removing the tank.

No gas getting to bbq


I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.
