Non-functioning Coleman lighter PTR 2160

(I couldn't find this product listed, so I had to choose from alternate categories to get this email to go through...HELP!)

I've had this Coleman lighter for less than a year, and until now it's been functioning perfectly - it's my everyday lighter. It's the one with the extendable necy to allow for reaching difficult places. Suddenly, it just stopped lighting. It's full with butane, sparks, but will not ignite. I need to know where I can send it for repairs (or if you have any quick fix for me...)

Hey Neil,

I just bought one myself for camping. Sent $6 S&H, along with lighter to Colibri Service Department (who apparently makes this lighter for Coleman) 1425 Cranston Street, Cranston RI 02920.

You'll want to empty the lighter of Butane before you send it (Hold lighter in verticle upright position. Depress filler valve with a ballpoint pen or small screwdriver until hissing stops.

I have the same lighter, but now the gas comes out everywhere BUT where is is supposed to when the trigger is depressed. Potentially very dangerous, and I would like it replaced-since it was quite expensive- but I' no longer have the receipt. It is non-existant on either Wallmart's (where I bought it) or Coleman's website

I blew a circuit breaker a while back and my unit has not worked since. Is there a reset button or fuse I can replace?

I can not find it either! I talk to the company that shows first on the list when you go into google and they apologize as that sewing machine center does not sell them since 2009. I asked if they could trouble shoot it with me as when I turn it on has a non stop laud sound. They insisted that they could not help. I asked them to remove the item from the website if they do not sell it or can not provide service for it. They did not wanted it. THAT SEWING MACHINE company just want to use it to bring more customer to their website....THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANY CUSTOMER SERVICE. Bad Business do not purchase from them as they can not stand and provide service for the products they sold you.

Find water demineraliser for use in a steam iron

You can use cheap pure distilled water (with no additive) as used to top up car battery: supermarkets and auto shops will carry the product.
You can also make your own by investing in a water distiller but they can be expensive and the cheaper model will take about one hour to make one liter.
As a cheap alternative and easy to find alternative, use a good quality drinking water filter (jug) to make your clean product with tap water and your steam iron will still thank you!

Hope it helps!

Iron got really hot, like it overheated, then the light stayed on, but the heat seemed to go off and water came out the bottom of the iron. What do I do now?


The thermostat must be replaced.

The iron uses a thermal cut off that will disconnect power to the element when the top temperature is reached.

In your case the thermostat is shorted inside, and will never cut off.

The part can be ordered calling Roventa at the customer support number listed on the owners manual. Alternatively, putting Rowenta Parts in a search engine like Google or Yahoo, you will get a list of Rowenta parts distributor in your area.

Euro Pro 1005 ironing Cover and Part.

Hello, rslarve, Okay, here are a couple of links that should be helpful: Euro Pro Replacement Cover LC and Pad for EP1010 / 1005
This will link you directly to the purchase page for the ironing cover you want. Sorry, but after extensive searching, it's the only one I could find, so I suggest you get two while the getting is good! Customer Support for Sharkvac Products -
This link will take you to a web page that will allow you to send the manufacturer an email explaining the part you need. Please, before you send the email, try your best to find your manual and see if there is a part number listed for the part you want. If not, and the old part is available (like—if you have a broken one), check it over thoroughly (perhaps using a small flashlight and magnifying glass to make sure you don't miss it) for any numbers that might be stamped, embossed, or etched into it. Even if they are not part numbers, they may help the manufacturer to locate the one you need. No matter what, send them as much information as you possibly can in order to help them be able to help you—the easier you make it on them, the more likely you are to get satisfactory results.  Finally, here is a toll-free number for the manufacturer's tech-support line: the same "homework" applies before you call it: 1-800-798-7398. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 6:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
I hope this helps! Ken

Tefal iron gv5140

Hmm. Mine has stopped steaming too. Any responses anyone? It heats up and works as a non-steam iron, no problems, but makes no steam noises and does not produce steam.

I had bought it off eBay - a retruned or ex-display product, with no guarantee - at the end of April. Tefal said it would not be cost effective to fix it through them. Does anyone have an idea if there's a component I could try replacing and where would I get it. Alternatively, do you know someone in Sheffield who could try to fix it? Or should I accept my eBay gamble didn't pay off and pay for a new one? It's annoying afer only 5 months - I don't iron very often either!
