Question about Coleman 10' X 10' Sundome Tent 9160K101
There is something in the jets or the piping to the mantels, you my find spider webing there, if you did no cap the port where the tank goes some small friends might have wanted to go camping with you.

fill the tank about 2/3 full. put the cap on tight, pump the air pump about 50 to 75 times to pressurize the fuel tank, you may have to turn the pump knob in a few turns to get a good pressure feel when you are pumping, then push the pump down all the way and turn the knob in until it gets snug. then you turn the gas knob on until you hear a hissing noise. turn it off and stick a large lit match in thru one of the holes in the steel plate below the lens and hold it close to one of the mantles then turn the gas on again and it should light up. let it run for a minute or so until the mantles light up brightly and then turn it on the rest of the way. I've done this hundreds of times. hope this helps and good luck. Jeepfxr

SOURCE: how to light coleman lantern
Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.

The other poster is right if it was left with fuel in it the fuel pickup is probably plugged. On this lantern the pickup is called a "Fuel Air Tube".
To test if its really plugged pull the generator (thats the brass tube with a nut on the bottom that runs up between the mantles and open the valve (do this outside, we expect fuel to come out). Fuel should POUR, or maybe even shoot out at that point. If it doesn't you've definitely got plug down below. If you do: drain the fuel out, put in some carb cleaner or fuel system cleaner, pump it back up and open the valve to let some of the fuel system cleaner into the FA tube, then close the valve and wait a few days. Open the valve again and see if you're getting more.
If you don't have a blockage you might have something in the air tube (thats the larger tube behind the generator) or the burner tubes (the things the mantles tie to). Or maybe you're expecting something other than what really happens, when lighting the generator will kind of gurgle or sputter to indicate theres fuel present. You don't want liquid fuel coming out of the generator's gas tip, that would give you a big fireball when you tried to light the lantern...

I suggest propane or gas because they are cheap to operate and you are given the option of dimming, which is something you can't do with most electric lanterns.
