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.

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
