    Probably because it has loose its grip on the internal mechanism of the stove.
    Try pulling out to replace it or get the user manual of the stove to learn how to change it..

Hi chrise74,

Have you tried checking the stove generator? Stove generator is the gas pipe that connects the fuel tank to the burner. It's often contributes to such problem. Here are some steps that you may apply to correct the problem.

1. Try to light the stove then watch for the reaction. Make sure to pressurize the stove before trying to light it, but release the pressure when taking apart any of the stove components.

2. If the stove does not light and no air sounds coming from the generator, then the generator may be clogged. Turn the knob clockwise until it stops to clean the tip of the generator. This procedure pushes a needle through the tip of the generator and clear any blockage.

3. Now if the stove will not light and there are air sounds coming from the generator, the generator may not be securely attached to the burner. You can use an appropriate sized wrench and a screw driver, unscrew the bolt and screws that secured the generator in place. Replace and remove the generator, make sure that the tip will fit securely and both mounting tabs are aligned.

4. Remove the generator and examine it. Check the tip for breaks that may prevent a seal. If you noticed that the tip is broken or seal is poor, you can use a lip balm to create a temporary seal in an emergency situations.

5. Replace the generator by unscrewing the bolt and screws from the old generator, then insert a new one.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It will probably be one of two issues. Either the waterflow sensor is not working correctly or the propane valve connected to to control knob is stuck shut. The water flow sensor is located on the side of the copper element (grey box) check that it spins easily. The propane valve is attached to the control knob by a long metal wire and should turn freely as you turn the control knob to warm

Most backing is about 350 degrees. I have a real hard time keeping the oven lit at that temp. the temp control is almost off. What am I doing wrong?


Try creating a wind block using bags etc around the fire AT A SAFE DISTANCE!! As well you can cook "under" a tarp that is hung at a angle, like a leanto: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a229/03Term/lean-to-step9.jpg
Just make sure you have it setup to block the wind!

Black soot on Coleman propane burner


Had same problem. Coleman tech support said, " clean with pipe cleaners". No directions....I would think they would provide a step by step protocol. So, I chose to take the knobs off and use the pipe cleaner where I could. I was able to take one of the two burner control knobs apart. After sticking the clean in every nook I could find, I put back together, and the flame on that burner is back to normal,

Good Luck--Daryl in Burnsville, MN

Coleman propane stove problem


The connector for attaching the regulator to a disposable propane cylinder has a sintered bronze filter in the tip of the brass probe tube that is prone to clogging, or the bronze pellets get mashed down over time, restricting gas flow, and this will cause a portable grill or camp stove to perform poorly. The filter is so fine that it takes very good eyesight and bright light to see that it isn't solid metal, or use of a strong magnifying lens. The best solution is to buy a new Coleman regulator assembly. If you are unable to get a new regulator assembly and have the skills and the tools, you can try drilling a very small hole on the side of the probe tube with a #60 drill bit, just below the bronze filter, but near enough the end of the tube so that the hole will be past the plastic seal when the disposable cylinder is fully screwed into place. You should avoid drilling directly into the end of the probe tube, as the end of it is used to depress the Schrader valve in the disposable cylinder to allow gas to flow. A #60 wire gauge drill bit is only 0.040 inch (1.016 mm) in diameter, but makes a hole large enough to supply sufficient gas to a portable grill or a dual-burner camp stove. If you choose to perform this work, the probe should be unscrewed from the regulator body and the Schrader valve core in the probe tube should be removed before drilling. Be sure to clean all brass and bronze particles out of the probe tube before re-installing the Schrader valve core and the screwing the probe into the regulator. Use a removable-grade thread locking compound to secure the probe in the regulator body and don't over-tighten it, so as not to crush the rubber gasket. Allow the thread locking compound to cure for several hours before attempting to use the regulator. Keep in mind that this modification increases the likelihood of dirt getting into the needle valves and jets of your stove or grill, which can cause maintenance problems in the future.1_28_2013_4_49_27_pm.jpg

Coleman instastart propane stove regulator wanted


Check to see if Coleman has an attachment to replace the regulator, so that you can use a five gallon cylinder with your stove and your own regulator.
