Been using these stoves for years in the army and they are very good. I have tried different fuels and they tend to clog up the pipes. Using the colemans fuel I do not have this problem. Also if leaving the cooker unused for long periods the fuel becomes unstable so good practice is to empty when being stored.

If experiencing problems with burning or leaks it mainly was the pipes being clogged with different fuels, quick fix was to strip the pipes and run through with cleaning brush and soaking the wire. this tends to fix most of my problems.

hope this helps, it worked for me.

it might be the rubber seal on the fuel filler cap has perished. try swapping the cover with a mate and try that. . maybe some ptfe tape on the thread might effect a temporary repair as a tester.

HAving trouble keeping pressure with feathlight stove, Got a new genny on it, plus changed rubber pump washer to a leathrer version.
Do the following.
Pump 25-30 times.
Ignite
Pump 25-30 times.
Looses pressure after a minute. Don't want to keep re-pressuring every, any ideas what's wrong.
By way run on coleman fuel.

the best thing to clean out generators is to soak in coca cola overnight, and you will be suprised how much c--p comes out i have done this once a year for 8 years and still on the original genny,regards.

Help! Iv recently fitted a new generator and pump kit to my coleman. I tried cleaning the old one because it was burning with a yellow flame. Problem now is it isnt burning as hot or powerful as it used to. Any ideas anyone?? Thanks.

When I withdraw the pump with finger over hole, the pressure decreases (flame dies),does this suggest the tank valve is leaking? If so is this repairable?
Update, think I have fixed this by removing inner stem placing oil around the thread to form better seal/gasket.
Fingers crossed

colemans are never good at lower heat settings. they may splutter a bit, or as yours does, be either full on or off.

Guys, HELP, fitted a new genny to my ageing sportster, now goes like a b*****d, but one problem, fully open is fine but try turning it down and it just slowly goes out.

It will not burn for any time on anything other than full bore, any suggestions?
