Re: Ordered a New Powerhouse & Ugh!

Aw man! That stinks.

Unfortunately quite a few folks have shared the same issue with Coleman over the past couple years. Damaged packaging, globes, parts.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they send you another one and tell you to keep the damaged one.

Re: Removing rust from vent

Ed, I've personally used Evaporust on vents, submerged overnight, without issues. I now avoid acidic products when cleaning porcelain ventilators due to hazing the finish. Bar Keeper's Friend (contains oxalic acid) hazed a black vent almost immediately. I've used it several times in the past on othe...

Re: 252 foreign object in air tube???

I always read (unofficially) you remove it for high elevation use, but now I'm not so sure--the technical manual makes no mention of it. The only references were the following: On page 6--Section II, Description: b. Burner Assembly. The burner assembly, with generator attached, mixes fuel and air to...

Re: Northstar fuel pickup tube replacement

… As an aside, the feed tube for the Coleman 639 is also a match for the above feed tube...difference is in color (black) and the bottom orifice hole #2 (2mm?) and probably the internal channels of tube to accommodate kerosene vs CF … Although the feed tubes may be similar dimensionally, the 639 is...

Re: Coleman stove identification

Look on the underside of the tank support tabs. Should be some stamped numbers.

The bottom of the case might be stamped as well.

Re: Coleman 426D Towel Holder?

Nice score on the stove!

I could see the towel holder attached to a tree or post with the towel upright. The three short chains with hooks would have hung off the bottom for utensils, like Mark mentioned.

William, I would just use some hot soapy water to clean it up. Maybe a little 0000 steel wool on the worst spots. If it has the golden hue to the finish on the metal parts, I found out that can come off fairly easily with harsher cleaning chemicals… If you can get the plug to stay in, I’d run with ...

Thanks for sharing that, Flint. I didn’t realize they actually made the material as well—that’s pretty cool.

I did notice what looked like a date code on the package, though.

It’s a plug for operating at different elevations, to change the fuel/air mix. Typically you take it out for high elevation use. I left mine in.

Re: Need gasket changing suggestions

I’ll go at them with a few different implements. An X-Acto blade and make a bunch of radial cuts. Small flat blade screwdriver and chip bits out. Hook/pick and get underneath the remains. I’ve used a small drill bit to make a bunch of holes in the gasket as well. Then go in and break out the remains...
