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.

The electronic ignition (piezo lighter) on my Coleman 2-burner propane camp stove just quit sparking to 1 burner. It still lights the 2nd burner. A fix?


I've had this issue a few times. Complete cleaning of the under side of the burner and all components of the ignition system fixes it every time.
The slightest bit of carbon build up is the probable cause. I would suggest cleaning the contact with 400 grit or higher emory cloth. This will remove any contamination from the ignitor,

Coleman single burner 502 camp stove. About 20 years old. Not used for almost 20 years, Questions: 1.) what type of gasoline fuel? white, leaded or unleaded regular? 2.) what "tune-up"...


Hi William, your cooker is one of the best models. If unused for many years the seals will need checking as they harden over time.

Here is a great site for people who this cooker:
