Check the battery with a volt meter to make sure you have the correct voltage. If not, replace battery. If correct voltage, bypass switch to determine if it is good or not. If not, replace. There really isn't much to go wrong on the lanterns except the bulb or battery.

I am trying to find battery location for Coleman Model 5327A750


William, went to Coleman site, looks like you remove screws on bottom of lantern to access and change battery.
Check the attached links to your manual,

I have a coleman 5317 RC series lantern that wont go into the dim mode what can I do


Hello. I've just looked at several Coleman lamps, some have krypton bulbs (mainly battery powered), some spiral fluorescent bulbs (mainly mains powered/charged). If this one is yours http://www.coleman.com/Parts/100/parts-lanterns/5317-702/remote-control-pack-away-family-size-lantern# then it appears yours has a spiral fluorescent bulb. Gas discharge bulbs commonly are fired up by an initial high voltage pulse then followed by a continuous ac medium voltage (say 80 volts or so) to give a FIXED LIGHT OUTPUT.
THIS DOES NOT ALLOW CONTROLLED DIMMING. Dimming can usually only be done on an INCANDESCENT TYPE bulb eg an older type tungsten filament bulb. These are however much less efficient.
So in summary, if you do have a fluorescent bulb, I don't know why your remote indicates you can dim it. You could try switching the bulb for an incandescent type, but this should only be attempted by qualified persons. Check over the user manual again. Good Luck.

Swissgear rechargable lantern won't light up, even though the green led light indicates it is fully charged


There are several different models of the Swiss Gear rechargeable lantern. On most though, you can remove the top portion of the lantern and check the lighting element inside. In most cases the elements can be removed and replaced. I have a dual filament lantern and from experience I know that every so often you may have to go buy a replacement light piece. If the lantern has been bumped or even just strapped to the outside of the pack while walking, it's possible for those elements to become loose and need repositioning or replacement so do check that. I'm sure that it should be unlikely your charger is malfunctioning unless you left it plugged in for some very extended period of time, in which case I would say the light would be more likely to burn out. But definitely try that and if that doesn't work the battery pack on the lantern itself may have an issue in which case you can always get a replacement.

Coleman rechargable lantern Model 5327A750. Have not used it in a while have left it on charge for over 24 hours. the night light works but the main light does not go on. Replaced the bulb and still...


just read the charging instructions. Charge for 16-18 hours. If stored for more than 6 months recharge for the full 16 hours. Do not leave the lantern on after the battery has stopped, has overdischarging the battery can cause problems in recharging to a full charge. If this does happen, switch lantern to off and recharge for 40 hours.YES 40 hours. Only the LED is the only light to be used while charging. If you hane the other light on hi or low the battery does not charge.

Hope this helps
