Question about Kitchen Ranges

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 catches fire. I have taken the stove apart several times and have put it back together using pipe dope at the joints. It may have something to do with pumping the tank after the initial lighting.

    Yes, this stove is a wonderful backpacking stove, and fixing it is my thought too. Some people think money solves everything but what about looking after what you have and not wasting our planet.

    I will fix mine... and I think you are on the right track except, use fine emery cloth to polish up the brass... it needs to be clean.

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).

My Peak 1 is 30 years old, and the only time it ever happened was the first time I used it, and I overfilled the tank. It needs some air space to comporess ans the fuuel is incompressible. The ley to this is to keep the whole stove level when you fill it. If you hold it so that the fuel filler is level, it will over fill the stove -- that is why the fuel filler is on an angle. Granted it is hard to fill that way, but Coleman makes (or used to make) a special aluminium funnel that fits into the filler pipe that makes it easier. Actually this is true for any white gas Coleman appliance -- note that abolustely all of them have the filler on an angle.

Buy a new stove. It's 20 yrs. old. Why are you risking a fire, explosion, injury? This is not rocket science.

    There is absolutely no reason why a 20- (or 30- or 40-) year-old Coleman stove shouldn't be usable or serviceable. The pump seal might dry out, but that's about it. Your dire view of the situation is typical of young people who belong to the everything-is-disposable generation.

I hit 350 and start on my range and sparks flew out of both sides and now the oven does not work. The stove works but not the oven. can you tell me how to fix this.


It sounds as if the bake element has failed. They cost around 8 to 20 dollars. You will need to unplug the stove first. (Shutting off the stove breaker is good to do before unplugging the stove as an added precaution). On the back of the stove there is a metal
cover with a couple of 1/4 inch hex screws. remove this cover and unplug the bake
element. Then remove the two hex screws inside the oven and slide out the bake element. The model number is located below the oven door behind the drawer to
purchase a replacement. Hope this helps.

I need to replace the rubber gasket in my Coleman Peak 1 Backpacking stove. I bought a replacement pump which it is too long for my stove, but is the only thing I could find in Seattle. How do I get the...


Oven door will not close completely, therefore oven light is always on and the outside manual switch doesn't turn light off or on. The gasket around the window is brittle and coming away from its anchors in a number of places. I would think it needs to be replaced. Where is this part available? either on line or in Toronto, ON.
