Question about Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel 424-700G Grill

1 Answer

Hi My Coleman 414 petrol stove is weeping fuel from the generator when off, even with the pressure bled from the tank. I have replaced the generator - no improvement. Instructions say to tighten the needle by hand and then 1/4 turn with pliers. I had to use pliers (gently) the whole way. Would not turn by hand. Thanks Doug

SOURCE: Coleman propane stove problem

john about every coleman stove ive ever had is like that. the purpose of it is to keep the burner closest to fuel tank cooler to avoid heating up fuel tank.cook on one warm on the other hope this helps you out

SOURCE: Coleman stove (Coleman fuel only).

Is it possible that the part that screws into the propane cylinder is not opening the bottle all the way. This would alow enough gas to flow through to light but will not keep a flame because there is just not enough fuel flow. If this is the case you most likely can't fix it and need a new one. How old is it, if you can return it for a new one, do that, just to be on the safe side.

My best answer is that your pump seals have dried out and are allowing pumped up pressure to leak back past the pump seal
Try this: DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE
Pump it up hard then quickly attach a small balloon with a rubber band around the base of the pump - where it contacts the tank. A deflated balloon or a small plastic baggie - does the balloon begin to fill with air after a few minutes - if yes then your seal is leaking.
You might try taking the pump apart and soaking the seal overnight in fuel reinstall and see if it cores your problem
Good Luck

It is an old one, Propane? or gasoline/camp stove fuel?

If propane and will not remain lit- replace the thremocouple- that thing beside the pilot flame that does not seem to do anything- it holds the gas valve open when flame is present.

If gasoline/camp stove fuel and will not light or does not stay lit- clean the "generator" which is under the asbestos shell. It is not even acknowledged by Coleman anymore.

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.

Carburator flooding


Then there likely is still trash in the carb.

Or, it could also be that the tank vent is clogged, and not letting fuel vapors be expelled from the tank. As fuel heats up, vapors are created, which pressurize the tank, which can force fuel through the carb past the float / needle.

Coleman 424 Dual Fuel -- High, yellow flame


Are you pumping the tank up all the way? I have the same problem if I have too little pressure in the tank. The instructions say pump 35 times. Try pumping 50 or 60 times- that seems to help.

Also, you can't light this one like an old 425. My old stove you could turn the gas on and then take a match neat the burner. For this stove, hold the match near the burner with the gas off and quickly turn it on.

These are two things that seemed to help me with the same problem.

There is water in your fuel. Drain the tank and flush it out with denatured alcohol. Refill with fresh fuel.
