Coleman Recalls Northstar Lanterns

Both are nice looking and were full of fuel. I love my Coleman lanterns….all 60 of them. It’s a true joy to bring one of these back to life. This makes me really miss our Coleman Propane lantern.


It didn’t want to make a spark, so I bent the electrode down to make the gap smaller. That helped a little bit, but it still had a hard time igniting the propane. This product comes with a metal guard to protect the globe and reduce rattling.

Avoid gasoline like the plague because you will only get one time use and after that next refill it will not work. The higher hydrocarbon of gasoline leaves carbon deposits that will clog up the generator and make the lantern useless. These types of lanterns are most beneficial to people who plan on driving to a campsite or a cabin. Another great use is for emergencies such as power outages.

From lecoleman battery lantern to right above is, gas, Led, propane , and Justin’s propane lantern. His propane lantern has two mantle bags, whereas mine has one long mantle that stretches from the top to the bottom. This picture shows pretty clearly the difference in brightness and color.

Once it turns into a ash, it will be fragile so if it gets touched or bumped, it will break. This will let a jet of hot gas shoot out of the hole and could burn the glass globe. Reinstall the glass globe and reassemble the lantern.

The coleman cabin tent may burn for up to a minute or so while the remaining fuel is burned off. Fits most all lanterns and stoves other than the model 242 lantern and 500 stove. This is the gasket that goes between the propane regulator and the small propane bottles that you screw on. Not ever offered as a separate Coleman part. The inner hole diameter is right between 5/16 and 3/8 of an inch. No matter which Dutchmen RV you choose or where you park it, at Dutchmen, you’re family.

The most crucial point is to follow fire laws and safety precautions as laid out by your wildlife or parks and rangers council. We want everybody to be safe, and we also want the natural habitat to be left as we had found it. As was also mentioned above, stick with Coleman mantles. They use Yttrium, which isn’t radioactive like the Thorium found in other mantles.

It is very high quality and fits the 237 nice and snug. Will also fit a 530 stove if you want to install a PH cup on it. This is the cardboard tube that goes inside of the 200A and 220 size generators, and many others. Typically used to stop a fuel leak from the valve stem on older appliances. If your filler cap is a standard size and has a screw in the center then these gaskets will work. Sorry, there are no products available online or in your local store.
