Single Mantel Propane Lantern (Coleman) BOOM!

4 posts in this topic

I brought an extra Lantern for my Fish House. It is an Coleman Single Mantel Coleman and it lights with a...boom. There dosen't seem to be any adjustment to the ignitor. It scares the H E double L outta me. Anybody else have this same problem? Any advice? I have to let the thing fill with a little bit of gas before it will ignite. It sure makes a heck of a boom before it ignites.

Sounds like delayed ignition. The generator may be dirty or the ignitor is faulty. If the generator is dirty or plugged, the gas will not have enough pressure to reach the ignitor in time for it to ignite. The gas builds up until it reaches the igniter. Or if the igniter is faulty, the gas builds until the ignitor sparks when it wants to, thus igniting when the gas has built up. Clean and check the generator and oriface or replace the ignitor. To rule out a faulty ignitor, lite it with a match.

I've never seen a lantern that doesn't boom. The size of the boom just depends on how long you let the gas run before lighting it.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
