Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Coleman Double mantle, liquid fuel lantern. Before it stopped working, lamp pulsed a bit but mostly burned dimly. Now it seems to be getting no fuel. Disassembled, and fuel comes out when stem from tank is removed. When stem is reattached, nothing comes out, no liquid, no hissing. Problem/clog seems to be in stem, but I don't know what it's supposed to look like when correct. I guess I'll send to a "stove" expert--is there something closer I should be choosing?

Yes it is a clogged stem. There should be a central needle that unblocks the jet at the top, remove this needle and clear of coke.

Try again, only this time pressurise without any of the "hat" on. Point away from you outside, and open up control fully.
A fine jet of about 1ft is normal, 3 feet or more and the stem needs replacing due to too large a hole.

If you have compressed air, blow through the jet from the top.

Use a copper wire for cleaning so as not to destroy the fine jet.

If this helps, Please rate as Fixya! or helpful if it only partly solves the issue.

The pilot light ignites but goes out when the button is released, I have held it down for over a minute, can you help

The pilot light works with a safety cut out device should the flame ever get blown out. The device cuts the gas supply to stop accidents. If you look where the pilot light burns you will see a small metal looking tip in the flame, this is the device. It is full of liquid:that expands when the flame keeps it hot. The other end applies pressure on the cut out switch. The liquid within can fail. It is very easy to follow the tube to the cutout switch, unscrew the whole tube assembly and take to a hardware store for a cheap replqcement that you screw back in. Any excess tube carefully wind up in a coil, do not bend sharply as liquid will excape (liquid usually oil based) Once refitted ignite per instructions for your device. Happy fixing.

Dim read out on oven.

Sounds like the transformer that powers the display board is shot. Unfortunitly, they are located ON the display board on most ovens. You will most likely have to replace the display board. Contact DCS, they will be able to help you. Have model # and serial # handy BEFORE calling, both are needed for them to help you. Voltage too.

75585891 gas range will not preheat oven. Everything seems to work. but oven will not show that it is preheated.

If I understand it is working just no lighting the preheat lamp? May just be a burned out lamp. Connect a jumper from any of the other indicators to the preheat. If it lights there is a problem in the oven control/thermostat. If it does not light when the other lamp you connected to it lights, it is the lamp.

Coleman Peak 1 Model 400 stove We have had this stove for 20 years at least. The last couple years a problem has begun and has gotten worse. The stove will leak liquid fuel all over the base which then...

I have heard two things that could improve your stove. I had the same "bursting into flame" issue last weekend while camping. First, move the black handle back and forth a few times. That is supposed to clean the jet. Second, take the generator off and hit it with a blowtorch. That should clean out the deposites on the inside. Or you can purchase new generators (just make sure you get the correct one).
