GE SteelBEAM Classic Krypton Lantern...I cannot

GE SteelBEAM Classic Krypton Lantern (MODEL NUMBER 41571 via AMAZON)...I cannot turn the bottom battery-compartment door to get it open. All it says is: (counter-clockwise arrow) ''OPEN''. I tried a locking pliers with no luck. Yes, I turned it counter-clockwise. Please help! Do you have a user's manual available? There is also a tab-like plastic part near the bottom that seems like it would push in or pull out, but I don't want to try forcing it yet. Does it need to be handled in a certain way to turn the door? Thank you, anyone!

SOURCE: HP Photosmart R927 Battery Compartment door latch

Same problem, The small plastic tab that extends into the slot to keep the battery compartment door broke off. I can't locate a source for replacement part. I disassembled the slide and reversed it, breaking off the little tip that fit into spring, and it sort of works, but a new plastic slide would be much better.

SOURCE: Loose door handle GE two door freezer/frig model TFG 22JADAWW

Called and watched mechanic who clipped of top and bottom covers with a screw driver then tightened both screws and replaced covers. Cost was $100 but I could have wrecked the door. Needs a special little star shaped screw driver head with ratchet fitting. Now equipped for next time.

SOURCE: My hood won't pop open

Push down on the hood where the latch is, the design is bad, very.  If you push on it a few times that will excersice the bad design, and make the hood easier to open.

SOURCE: Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03

There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.

SOURCE: can't remove bulb cover to install new light bulb. Tried turning counter clockwise - no luck.

Hi, If there are no metal fasteners on or around the bulb to holld it in, it will need to be twisted. Try and put a towel on the lens to help you get a better grip.
It sometimes take a great amount of force to turn the lens.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

How do D batteries install into a Rayovac camping lantern?


If there is no access panel on the bottom for the batteries then the base itself must unscrew to give you access. I'm sure that will work for you.

How to fix the switch on eveready lantern flashlight


The switch in the lantern is a press fit switch so you will destroy it when you remove it. Remove the lense and retainer ring. Remove the battery. With a pair of pliers, preferably channel lock water pump pliers crush the switch into small piece and discard. Trail Tech makes the exact water resistant switch model 040-ls-b and you can get it at Amazon or on eBay . The switch runs around $6.25 + $4.00 shipping

I have a GE battery powered (4 D cells) camping lantern. It will not turn on. The batteries are new and have been tested. Is there a way to remove the fluorescent and check?


Fluorescent lamps need a high voltage in order to ionise the gas inside and make them light up..Torch batteries will not produce enough voltage alone so the battery voltage is boosted by an inverter that is incorporated into the torch or lamp body.

It is unfortunate but the majority of such lamp inverters use the cheapest, nastiest, flimsiest circuitry it is possible to use in such things and having taken a few lamps and torches (of respectable brands) apart and seen such things I find it easy to imagine they were thrown together in a far eastern handbag factory when there was a world slump in handbag sales.

When working correctly the inverter produces a voltage high enough to really surprise anyone touching the wrong parts but they do tend to be unreliable due to the usually low quality.
A handy person could conceivably persuade such a lantern to dismantle and check the switch and wiring and ensure the battery voltage is reaching the inverter but it would need electronic experiece to venture further into the reasons why it stopped working.

A replacement tube could be tried but they fail rarely and rarely do they operate long enough to actually wear out so buying a new tube is likely to be wasted money.

I have a GE Hurricane lantern model # 17000, how do I get it apart to put new batteries in it? There is an arrow on the bottom of it pointing to oppen one way and close the other, but nothing is budging.


I have the same latern. Apply a bit more force to rotate the bottom lid in a counter-clockwise direction. There are threads on the inside of the botton lid. To replace the battery or bulb you go through the botton of the lattern.
