Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

Open Question

I have a coleman presidential model#7670. We replaced the thermocouple last year to fix the pilot problem. a few weeks ago it started to randomly go out and we and now the pilot will not light at all. Would the next step be to replace the regulator and can we still get a regulator for it?

You should have 3 wires going to the gas valve - MV(mainvalve), PV(pilot valve) and MV/PV (or Common). Make sure all of these are properly wired and tight.
You also may have a dirty FLAME SENSOR on your pilot/ignitor assembly. You may need to remove the pilot tube and the pilot assembly to clean the sensor with sandpaper.
Be careful not to damage any parts while cleaning them. Be careful not to crossthread the gas line when re-installing it.

There is really not a lot to go wrong with the heater itself so my first guess would be that the regulator is bad, not letting the proper amount of gas through. You can check it for leaks with a bottlee of soapy water but even if you don't see a leak there is a rubber gasket inside with a pressure spring that is probably bad.

NO, the regulator in the valve MUST be converted too!

What is the correct way to light a Coleman Presidential heater?


The older Coleman Presidentials had a screw-cap with mica in the center. You unscrewed the cap and used a telescoping match holder to reach in to the thermocouple/pilot light and lit it once you twisted the gas control to the 'pilot' position and depressed the controls button or lever. I don't know the specifics on the newer Preidentials Chester, but it has to be similar.

I have a Coleman Presidential II Model #3118A751, it went out. What parts do I need? can it be fixed?


If it is a 'standing pilot' furnace and it just 'went out'...I would think you need to try to re light the pilot light. If it doesn't re-light, it is probably time for new thermocouple. Presidentials are very tricky to install a thermocouple on if you are not experienced with it or if you don't feel comfortable working with gas and electricity.

Probably should call a local 'handy-man' at the least to perform the task or a local HVAC service company.

There should be a series of phillips head screws around the perimeter of a large access panel on the front of the furnace. You'll need a 3/8" wrench for the thermocouple connection to the gas valve and a 7/16" wrench to remove the 'pilot' line off of the gas control. Look for how the pilot assembly mounts under the pancake style burner because its much easier to remove the whole pilot assembly to replace the thermocouple than just it by itself. Once removed, it is self-explanatory as to replacement of the thermocouple.

Do NOT overtighten the thermocouple connection into the gas valve as you can damage the gas valve by doing so. Make sure you leak test the pilot tube connection after it is reconnected to the gas valve. A diluted solution of dishwashing liquid dashed around the ferrule of the pilot line should show bubbles if there is a leak. No gas will be in that line unless the pilot button is depressed and/or the pilot light is lit and burning.

The pilot assembly may need cleaned out and the orifice cleaned, also the gas valve may need to be replaced, to check for proper voltage from the thermocouple you need a flame source and it takes a meter that can register DC milliamps, and should be 350 to 750 millivolts. Heat the thermocouple with the pilot or other flame source and check, if OK, gas valve is weak.

if the pilot is clean and and strong then this should play on to the thermocouple , i take it you have changed the thermocouple , and the connection is good at the gas valve , then if this going out could be 1, powerunit on gas valve not holding at thermocouple connection

2. Hole in heatexchanger blowing out pilot when blower comes on

I take it the pilot stays on untill fan comes on and keeps going out , I would think about not putting any more money in to this and get new if sounds as the heater has had its day ,

Most likely it's time to replace the thermocouple, the safety device that makes sure the pilot is lit. New thermocouples are cheap and you can find them at most hardware stores and the big-box places (Home Depot, etc.)
