Coleman pressure doesnt relieve

I've dismanteled, but still the pressure remains fixed (cannot pump any more without pushback). When I have the first section in the base; and the valve is open (or without the knob installedI just pushing down on the exposed gidget) I get a very small gurgle of escaped air/fuel (I've emptied the can before starting). Behaves the same whether fully assembled, or just down to that first pipe. How do you release the pressure that's been built up? And more importantly; what could be preventing the pressure from releasing? I thought it would have released when I took the fuel cap off

My coleman dual fuel lantern wont let me pressure the fuel up with the plunger


Remove the plunger and oil the leather diaphram with light oil similar to 3 in 1 oil, and expand the diaphram until it is no longer stiff and contracted. If you do not know how to remove the plunger let me know.

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

I have a Coleman single mantle dual fuel lantern. I have just fitted a new primer pump and i have vapour coming out and through the mantle but it will not ignite the mantle. Any suggestions please? Thanks


What kind of fuel are you using
Read More At : Coleman Twomantle Dual Fuel Powerhouse Lantern ()...

I have a dual fuel, two mantles, coleman lantern. I have changed the mantles several times and they keep getting holes almost every time i light the lantern.


Make sure that the vapourised fuel is coming through the mantle before lighting up. You should hear a hissing sound when the flame adjusting lever is turned to high. If not it is possible that the generator is clogged up and that vapourised fuel is not getting through to the mantle. So when you light up you are essentially just burning the mantle. If the generator is knackered it will need to be replaced. One way to check it to remove the generator, primed the tank and turn the valve on. If fuel spurts out when the generator is removed (DON'T LIGHT IT U)P THOUGH) but there is no hissing sound when the generator is intact then it is a sure sign that the generator is clogged up. In the UK a replacement generator should set you back £10-15. Hope this helps, Bandit

Acts like a check valve is stuck open below the plunger assembly. It lets all the pressure out while im trying to pump it up..is this something i can fix? the lantern is relatively new.


It sounds like you are correct. While I don't know much about the new lanterns I have worked a lot on older ones. My first suggestion is the easiest. Try putting some 3 in 1 oil on it. First relieve any pressure in the tank- open the valve then slowly loosen the fill cap- watch out as it will likely spill fuel so do this outside Remove the plunger, there is a black plastic piece that holds it in it will come of either by a push and twist, or by removing a little metal bail across it. (you remove the metal bail (small wire loop) by gently pulling it outward with a small pliers.) then the plunger should come right out look into the hole and you will see a check valve at the bottom, try a bit of oil or wd40 on this, let it sit for a while, it may just be rusted open, and will take some time for the oil to work. Make sure it is working well before you light the lantern. you Do Not want this to fail when the lantern is going. Do this outside and away from any flames. Pump it up and see if it can hold pressure overnight

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...
