Coleman Lanterns

Postby tigger2 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 7:31 pm

If you grab your trusty Coleman lantern and it won't pump up, the fix is probably pretty simple. The pump works because of a series of leather bushings. If the bushings dry out, the pump will fail to work. No matter how hard or fast you pump, you won't be able to use the lantern. It takes compressed air for the lantern to work. The pump is held in place by a metal half ring. Just move the half ring and the entire pump will easily come out of the lantern. Soak the pump in some oil. Just about any kind will do. The oil or lubricant provides a seal. Wipe the excess off and the pump will most likely pump again.
If the leather bushings have major edge wear, the entire pump will most likely have to be re-placed. Walmart usually carries the pumps. They are not that expensive compared to the cost of a new lantern.

By the way, I was at Walmart the other day. They have an adaptor that will convert your Coleman gas stove to a propane stove. The adaptor was
around $18.00. This is much less than a new stove.

The parts 13, 19 and 22 have to do with the pump. As you can see the prices are much less than a new lantern. I couldn't find a link to the Walmart Coleman parts. I know they do have the replacement pumps at the Walmart here.

This is a direct link to Coleman for lantern parts for one model.

Great post!

We use our lantern and gas stove almost every time we camp...

I'm going to look into that adapter...

I was at Cabelas recently and they have a pump repair kit with the leathers and other flaps. $3.88 vs. the $9.00 for the entire pump replacement. They were genuine coleman parts and are good for both stoves and lanterns.

I believe current production lanterns, and the replacement pumps at Walmart no longer use leather. There is a plastic part instead.

Having a spare pump seems like a wise move if you use Coleman stoves or lanterns.

I bought one of those adapters to have a different fuel capability for cooking. Add a propane hose, and you can steal the large propane tank from your BBQ and use that for cooking. The bad thing about the adapter is that it does not seem to attach solidly, so you have to make sure it stays in place correctly on the stove.
