Coleman Camp Stove Repair

6 posts in this topic

I have a Coleman Camp Stove that needs a little TLC.

The pump will not exert any pressure to the fuel tank. I removed the pump mechanism and oiled the leather since it was bone dry. Still, I am unable to get any pressure in the tank.

I know very little about the mechanics of these stoves and I am seeking suggestions on what else could be wrong.

Marmot, I too had that problem with a gas lantern. The leather plunger appeared to be ok so I oiled it. It still did not work. I then put a new one in it and it worked perfectly. Go to colemans web site and order there. The leather plunger is cheap.

Good Luck

Thanks for the input Ninetoe.

Earlier today I was on Coleman's web site looking for troubleshooting info and prices for replacement parts. Since the prices are reasonable, I think I am going to replace the entire pump mechanism in hopes of avoiding future headaches in trying to get the stove going again.

Anyplace have these on hand? Got a lantern that I can tell the leather is starting to get bad but will make the season I hope. Just wondering where I can pick up a new one while out and about.

Most sporting goods places that sell camp stoves have the plunger assemblies hanging up near the lantern mantles and spare generators. K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Pamida, outfitters, Gander Mountain, etc. should have these in stock. The plunger is a standard "one size fits all" deal, so it doesn't matter what stove or lantern you have.

A drop or two of oil a year (I use 3-in-one) will keep those leathers working great. I have a lantern and stove that will be 25 yrs old this summer and both have the original pump and leathers. I have replaced one generator on the lantern.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
