Sound like no pressure. Try greasing the washer before you buy another. If you do need one, leather is better.

no the pump does not get harder it stays the same ,you can see a jet of fuel coming out the genny and the flame stay yellow i would say there is no pressure there .so i will give the genny a clean out see if that is any better if not get a new washer and by that do you mean the rubber thing on the pump?
Thanks

Could be either one of not enough pressure or a blockage in the genny.

When you pump it does it get harder to pump? if not change the washer, if it does then clean out the genny. If you don't know how to there are instructions further down, although I do like the idea of using coca cola. Sometimes you can clear a blockage by rapidly turning the valve from hi to low, you will hear it go as the whoosh is louder if you know what I mean.

That dripping is fuel that isn't being turned into a mist and so dipping out the end of the genny. Not the best thing to have

The drip is from the end that goes under the flame .once i open up the tape after pumping it starts to hiss then you can see dripping from the oppersit end to the tape .

Check the leather seal in the generator normally this will wear and split during use.

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.
