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?

Hi.

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.

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.

How to install new mantles?


First of all, make sure your lantern is completely shut off and cooled down, and you are working in a well ventilated area away from any external fuel sources.

You need to remove the screw holding the top cap on, then remove the top and the glass globe.

Then remove the remains of the old mantle(s) and then tie on the new ones in their place.

Then, with the lantern fuel supply turned OFF, carefully light the mantles with a match or lighter and allow them to completely burn to ash and the flame to go out. Do not touch the mantles after this point because they will be very fragile.

Now carefully replace the glass globe and screw the top back on.

Now you can try lighting the lamp normally with the fuel valve in the ON position.

Here are a few links to some short videos on YouTube which demonstrate the mantle replacement process:

Jun 16, 2011 | Coleman Northstar Dual Fuel Lantern

1 Answer

I have a dual fuel, two mantles, coleman lantern. I have changed the mantles several times and they keep getting holes almost every time i light the lantern.


Make sure that the vapourised fuel is coming through the mantle before lighting up. You should hear a hissing sound when the flame adjusting lever is turned to high. If not it is possible that the generator is clogged up and that vapourised fuel is not getting through to the mantle. So when you light up you are essentially just burning the mantle. If the generator is knackered it will need to be replaced. One way to check it to remove the generator, primed the tank and turn the valve on. If fuel spurts out when the generator is removed (DON'T LIGHT IT U)P THOUGH) but there is no hissing sound when the generator is intact then it is a sure sign that the generator is clogged up. In the UK a replacement generator should set you back £10-15. Hope this helps, Bandit

What fuel does my 335 lantern run on pat no 1969 globe 4,mantle 999 generator 63 0n bottom fuel tank has a no 937416 and year 1969 any information would be great


happytimes17-

This lantern is designed to run on gasoline, but will work best with white gas, also generically known as "coleman fuel" in many areas. White gas is in fact a more pure form of gasoline, without many of the fine particulates and impure distillates found in automotive gasoline.

Most hardware stores and sporting goods stores carry Coleman or other brands of white gas.

Hope this helps.

I cant get any petrol to pump into the mantles


If the petrol doesn't come through first check that you have enough in the tank. If the tank is not full enough it won't come through. If it still fails to come through it's likely that the generator is blocked. This is the tube which the mantle sits on and it has a very narrow opening to force the petrol to convert to vapour when it's warm. Try heating it for a while and it may clear it. Otherwise you'll need to buy a new generator.

Note: while the dual fuel lanterns can burn petrol you should be aware that it gives off poisonous fumes, like cars did before they had catalytic converters. The lantern should not be used indoors with petrol. They are safe with coleman fuel. If you live in the USA, Coleman fuel is cheap but if you're in Europe it's much too expensive. Rather than buying a new generator, if you live in Europe, you could buy a parafin burning lantern like the Petromax 500 available from http://www.pelam.de/index.php?cPath=28_31&language=en&gclid=CIOe46DQnqYCFQkf4QodQxz2Zg
and other sites, or you can pick up second hand Optimus lanterns on Ebay. Both burn parafin, though they need to be primed, and provide at least as much light as the Coleman.

I have a Coleman 228F model lantern. When I go to light it, it barely produces any gas. I have made sure it is pumped adequetly and full of new fuel. I can hear gas coming out very faintly and sometimes...


It's likely that it was left away with fuel in it. This causes gel to form which blocks the fuel getting through. The blockage could be anywhere between the tank and the mantles. The order I would check in are;
  1. The feed tube assembly
  2. The generator
  3. The Burner
It's possible to get these parts from coleman or coleman suppliers. To find which needs replacing you'd need access to another similar lantern and try replacing one at a time. Otherwise it's going to be trial and error or just replace all.

There's a manual which shows the assembly and the order number for parts at http://www.coleman.com/coleman/images/pdf/220f_228F.pdf
I hope this is of some help.

How to light coleman lantern


Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.

How to fit a mantel to a coleman propane lantern


Hi, First remove the knurl nut on the top. Remove the top and then the glass globe. There are several types of mantels most of which tie with a string that is part of the mantel top. The newer ones have a wire clip in place of the string. Which ever type you had on before you need to remove the old pieces completely. Since the mantles burn to an ash they will disintegrate when touched but if it had the metal clip you need to remove it. Tie or clip the new mantle over the lip on the output orifice being careful with the screen underneath. Replace the glass globe and top, put the nut back on finger tight. Remember that the mantel turns into ash when it burns for the first time so keep the gas low to start it till the mantle forms properly ( in the first minute) Good Luck, this should Fixya!
