coleman lantern problems

Recommended Posts

I have a duel fuel 2 mantle lantern that just is not putting out the normal light/heat. When I pressurize the tank it doesn't roar like it used to. I imagine it is varnished like a bad carb. Has anyone cleaned one of these units? and where to I start?

Had it been in storage for a while? I had one do the same thing and it was a siderweb in the main tube that connected to the mantle stopping the fuel from defusing properly. It could also be a bad generator.

No, I had used it the day before and it worked fine, or so I thought. Ironically, I just started using coleman's "premium" fuel. I have heard of running seafoam through it, Has anyone tried this and at what ratio to white gas?

Did you use unleaded gas before? When I used unleaded gas mine did not work well. I switched to white gas and they work fine. Just to make sure you know the newer lanterns do no have the cleaning lever. You clean them by turning the gas valve off and on several times.

I would put a new generator in it. It will burn cleaner give off more light and light easier. You should be able to get one for $10.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
