Coleman Camp Stove Repair

Question

Marmot

I have a Coleman Camp Stove that needs a little TLC.

The pump will not exert any pressure to the fuel tank. I removed the pump mechanism and oiled the leather since it was bone dry. Still, I am unable to get any pressure in the tank.

I know very little about the mechanics of these stoves and I am seeking suggestions on what else could be wrong.

Marmot, I too had that problem with a gas lantern. The leather plunger appeared to be ok so I oiled it. It still did not work. I then put a new one in it and it worked perfectly. Go to colemans web site and order there. The leather plunger is cheap.

Good Luck

Thanks for the input Ninetoe.

Earlier today I was on Coleman's web site looking for troubleshooting info and prices for replacement parts. Since the prices are reasonable, I think I am going to replace the entire pump mechanism in hopes of avoiding future headaches in trying to get the stove going again.

Anyplace have these on hand? Got a lantern that I can tell the leather is starting to get bad but will make the season I hope. Just wondering where I can pick up a new one while out and about.

Most sporting goods places that sell camp stoves have the plunger assemblies hanging up near the lantern mantles and spare generators. K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Pamida, outfitters, Gander Mountain, etc. should have these in stock. The plunger is a standard "one size fits all" deal, so it doesn't matter what stove or lantern you have.

A drop or two of oil a year (I use 3-in-one) will keep those leathers working great. I have a lantern and stove that will be 25 yrs old this summer and both have the original pump and leathers. I have replaced one generator on the lantern.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
