Coleman Lantern Parts
One of the best things about Coleman lanterns that make them so much better than other brands is the ability to get accessories and replacement parts. This makes using your lantern and keeping it in top working order very simple. Since you can ensure that it is always ready for the next camping trip your lantern will work great and will light up your camp with no problems.
They'll last a long, long time. But not forever. If you've used your favorite Coleman gear so much that it's finally starting to show some wear be sure you select the correct part and install it or have it installed correctly.
Each of the Coleman lantern parts are intended to use only on the specific Coleman product you own. It is not recommended to use the Coleman lantern parts on the wrong lantern or on a product other than a Coleman lantern.
Some resources supply kits that have all of the parts that might meed to be replaced at some time during the time you own your coleman lantern. Recommended to have on hand and everything you need to maintain your Coleman lantern: 12 mantles, 3 globes, 2 generators, 1 tank cap and 2 cap screens.
A cleaner Coleman® lantern works better and looks better. The benefits of regular cleanings include better fuel efficiency, flame control and no rust or corrosion.
Although there isn't a set schedule for cleaning your lantern, you should clean it whenever it is dirty before storing your lantern at the end of camping season.
Under most conditions, lanterns can be wiped out with warm water and dishwashing soap and then dried before storing.
After cleaning, proper storage of your Coleman® lantern is also important.
Put it into a plastic bag, sealing with a twist tie to prevent spiders or other insects from crawling in the unit, which can block the fuel and airflow.
With a liquid fuel lantern, transfer as much fuel as possible out of the fuel tank and back into the fuel can to prevent a lacquer buildup on the tank's fuel tube. Keep in mind that storing a liquid fuel appliance with fuel in the tank can eventually cause a buildup on the fuel tube, which restricts fuel flow to the generator and burner.
When it's time to take out your lantern, remember to oil the pump cup on the tank's pump plunger at least twice a year with a light machine oil. This allows the cup to seal against the inside of the pump barrel and insures the pump will work smoothly and push air into the tank properly.
