Hi Guys,

Just dusted off the HWOD unit in preparation for trip. It ignites (I can feel the heat), but the pump is not firing up. I can turn the impeller with a small screwdriver. I have checked the plug and it is outputting 6v.

I tired to buy a replacement pump but Coleman don't have stock and the eta is late Jan.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi,

I had the same problem and a new pump fixed it. I got mine off ebay from seller ozcampingclub. I've just had a look and couldn't see any pumps listed.

Somewhere like Ray's Outdoors or BCF may keep them.

181. All those pumps are pretty generic I think. If you have time head to a camping or outdoors shop and buy a shower only one. The shower only ones are just the pump and cables/tubes. You may be able to use the pump from that in your heating unit.

I had similar trouble with my primus one but the pump was actually stuck tight and would not budge. I just swapped the pump unit from an old shower only unit I had before the primus heating unit.

181. The Coleman units have a fuse inside and you have to break the unit apart to replace it. My fuse was blown after I left the pump running unaware. New fuse and it was ok. Cheers Boof.

I don't think the OP cares, he asked the question 3 days ago & hasn't bothered to respond, even to my offer of giving him a pump assembly!
Just another abandoned thread.

Settle down Shaker... I have been offline and could not respond to the thread on my mobile.

I do appreciate the offer but managed to source a pump from a friend.
