I had a couple of Peak 1's which I serviced myself, neither had any asbestos or wadding type material under the burner.

The first Peak 1 was no problem, hardly needed servicing, although the burner rings did wear away over time.
The only reason I replaced it was it was cheaper to get new stove than order new burner rings.

The second was a 'mare from start to finish. It regularly needed cleaning, servicing, within a year I had replaced the pump and generator, serviced, checked and double checked it to get working again.
I went on a week session with my Mrs, for 3 days it worked fine, then on the Thursday it would not light, would not pump out fuel when the valve was turned on.
It had been refilled, pressurised, pumped up, yet would not work. I depressurised it, turned it off and took it apart, checked it all, rebuilt it, yet nothing when I pumped it up and switched it on. I shook it again to check I had refilled it properly, not overfilled it. Nothing. I lifted it up and as I did so must have caught the valve, it then sprayed me with petrol across the face.

As soon as I got home that weekend I went back to gas.

whatever it is - seems to do a job - the coleman that I have used for a number of years is pretty sedate compared to some I have read about.

This is the exploded diagram ( very apt in this case as this may be the last thing I ever see flying towards me!). I have taken this from the TB catalogue of 2003 ( yes I know itís sad but I keep them).

The stove in question is on the left and although all components are listed there is no mention of any cotton, foam or any other substance that could possibly be a heat shield function

Maybe the foam was just a packing piece that had stayed unobserved for a few years until I discarded it? Maybe not and it had some function. I donít remember any cotton like material?

Obviously something is amiss and it would be worthwhile finding out what it is as what is the potential danger. It obviously is not included in the diagram.

Apologies to the mods if any copyrights have been infringed, but as I seem to be the owner of a potential napalm bomb I think this is justified?

My recollection without looking at a diagram is that there was a ĎUí shaped bit of foam ( padding) which fitted around the firebox area which absorbed ( or deflected) the heat from the fire bowl from radiating downwards towards the fuel cylinder (body or base) of the stove.

I never really gave it that much thought as a safety feature because the whole of the fire bowl assembly Is directly in contact with the main body or base of the stove as itís rivetted to it, so direct heat transfer is inevitable from fire bowl to lower body via this common connection.

Maybe the radiatated heat from the fire bowl to the main body without the foam ( or whatever) is more acute than I gave it credit for and this is causing the problem?

That bit of "cotton" is to catch the bit of fuel you release and set light to when you preheat the generator. Same as on a Primus.

Mine has some cotton like material under the bowl - I always thought that this was to catch any unburnt fuel.. "catching" it in something like cotton would enable it to evaporate quicker due to the increased surface area.. that's my take at least..

heat absorbing foam

Curious about the "heat absorbing foam", I cannot recall having anything like that on mine and cannot check till I get home on Saturday to check.

I think the grey box comes with the sportster 533 up around £90 new now they used to be around £30 whats that about, you can buy the grey case separately for about 20 quid new if your mad.

I used to have the big green double burner about 25 years ago but after a few years that got binned after flaring up a few times was getting quite regular going home with no eyebrows, I then bought a peak 442 feather that thing glows red and tings and pings when it cools down, switched over to gas quite a few years ago now but always keep the backup Coleman in the van just in case, mind you the prices there going for it maybe up on ebay.

A cheap and effective case SECOND POST ON THREAD

Mine does glow red and ting away when cooling down but the lower does not get warm even after 20 to 30 mins on full blast
Doesn't sound safe warm pressured fuel

Good info on TB servicing. I always used to look at the back of the old TB yearly catalogue and see the servicing advertised. I didnít realise It was that cheap though, presuming it was cheaper to buy a new one ( they were about £25 then).


My Coleman sits in either a Nash case or a small Shimano stove bag which has two pouches on each end for the proper aluminium fuel flasks, so everything is together. It is about 28 years old.

Following a tip on here from Gerry years ago I now run it on Aspen 4T fuel. Itís normally used only in the depths of winter. Using Aspen 4T means it runs clean and clogging is never an issue. The issue I have is that it runs too hot! The upper burner and bowl parts glows bright red - fair enough, but the lower fuel container gets very, very hot, too hot to be healthy for something contains pressurised fuel! I think the heat absorbing foam is missing but even so it shouldnít get as hot as it does. Once turned off ( risking burnt fingers) it sits there making ting ting sounds for ages. Iím **** scared of the fecker to be honest

Anyone else had this problem.
