For what it’s worth, Coleman doesn’t know I’m writing this post. If they find this, hopefully they won’t mind.
While we were on vacation, our Coleman stove started to act a bit “funny”; the stove was difficult to light and the flame was yellow and inconsistent. This is usually a “generator” problem.
The long tube that comes out of the gas tank and goes across the right hand side gas burner is the generator.
I called Coleman on the telephone, gave them the stove model number and asked if they had a generator. It arrived in two days.
This was for a stove that had 9 76 stamped on the bottom. Since I bought this stove used in 1980, I’m guessing this is “September 1976”. I had the same experience last year when I was needing parts for my similarly aged Coleman lantern.
They do not appear to have given up supporting their older products. I will keep this in mind when (hopefully when) our daughter needs her own camping stuff.
