Guide :Camping, Backpacking & Hiking : Northstar Dual Fuel Lantern

I have an older coleman CLX lantern. The pump seems to work fine, there's pressure. When I turn the switch on there's nothing. Is it clogged or is it the generator or what.

Suggested Questions And Answer :


My northstar lantern lites then goes out within 20 to30 seconds. Is it the generator? and if so what # generator do I need? The lantern is about 8 years old and used once or twice a year.


If the problem is that it loses pressure quickly (that is, you have to pump it up again and then it will light briefly), the problem is most likely the cap. It has a rubber gasket underneath that has probably dried out and isn't giving you a good seal. These caps are common replacement items, all the same size, available at Walmart, Kmart, etc. Another likely culprit is old fuel. Many years ago (like 30) the fuel lasted nearly forever. But sometime since then, the fuel has been reformulated making it work better in the short term, but having a limited shelf-life. If your fuel is more than a year or two old, try some new fuel.

My coleman powerhouse dual fuel lantern brightens and dims continuously. could this be the generator acting up?


Hi bradley m925... Try using the cleaner for the generator, it is a twist type crank, make a few turns on it if you have it. If not then your right, replace the generator as it is faulty. Please take time to rate me Coleman Generators website...http://www.summitcampinggear.com/lage.html

How to install new mantles? - Coleman Northstar Dual Fuel Lantern


First of all, make sure your lantern is completely shut off and cooled down, and you are working in a well ventilated area away from any external fuel sources. You need to remove the screw holding the top cap on, then remove the top and the glass globe. Then remove the remains of the old mantle(s) and then tie on the new ones in their place. Then, with the lantern fuel supply turned OFF, carefully light the mantles with a match or lighter and allow them to completely burn to ash and the flame to go out. Do not touch the mantles after this point because they will be very fragile. Now carefully replace the glass globe and screw the top back on. Now you can try lighting the lamp normally with the fuel valve in the ON position. Here are a few links to some short videos on YouTube which demonstrate the mantle replacement process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6lLNFcwsEk&NR=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qRPe8V1tC4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHBxgx_BNF0 I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

Hi there. I have been using my Coleman northstar for a week camping with Coleman fuel when it ran out I Began using unleaded petrol. It took a while but eventually worked fine. Now it doesn't work at all!! I have replaced the mantle but to no avail. It doesn't seem to have enough pressure to keep it lit no matter how much I pump it. Please help. Thanks...
