Question about Garden
Hello, W/D here.
The generator is the small brass tube located close to the mantles. Here's how the lantern works: You pump it up until you get a decent pressure, or your thumb falls off, whichever occurs first. Next, you turn the main knob to the lighting position, which is usually marked as a 1/4 turn to the right. Then, you manipulate the small valve in between the mantles until you hear a gas flow. Turn the valve until the gas flow is lessened, then light the mantles. Adjust the small valve to get the mantles glowing. Re-pump up the main tank, and close the internal stem valve by rotating the plunger in a clockwise manner. Open the main gas knob to the run position, or fully, depending on your model. Adjust the gas flow at the small valve to keep the gas from flaring up at the mantles.
The heat from the mantles heats the generator, which atomizes the gas, and maintains pressure on the tank via the return tubing. As long as the mantles are heating, the length of time between tank pumpings is greatly extended, but usually not eliminated completely.
Best regards, --W/D--
