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.

My best answer is that your pump seals have dried out and are allowing pumped up pressure to leak back past the pump seal
Try this: DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE
Pump it up hard then quickly attach a small balloon with a rubber band around the base of the pump - where it contacts the tank. A deflated balloon or a small plastic baggie - does the balloon begin to fill with air after a few minutes - if yes then your seal is leaking.
You might try taking the pump apart and soaking the seal overnight in fuel reinstall and see if it cores your problem
Good Luck

Coleman 424 duel fuel stove leaking fuel at control knob. Took that whole section apart today and it seems there is some sort of dark grey hard putty like gasket material in the joint there and I guess it...


A complete new valve assembly isn't very expensive and you can often get one on eBay with a new generator included. It's not worth servicing the old valve given the safety implications of leaking fuel.

Colman stove won't light


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...

Having a problem with burners not generating .


so you have a yellow flame, not blue?
my mate had same problem. He now uses unleaded, adding 10 drops Redex to a gallon.
He was also told not to overfill the tank - just 3/4 full.
Works much better but he says not perfect.
