G'day all,
I can't pump any pressure into the tank on my single burner dual fuel stove. I turn the knob 1/2 to 1 turn anticlockwise, place thumb over hole in pump handle and can't pump. It feels like something is blocked and can't push plunger all the way in. Had this problem years ago but can't remember what I did. Any body know the cure?
Cheers Pete and Lez

The plunger is probably unscrewing from the "seal".

Pull it apart, check the plunger "seal", grease (silicone lube is good) and re-assemble.

If all else fails, you could buy a new pump/seal kit.

For an old Queenslander it was bloody cold, Murray.

The 15 year old wanted to try his hand at rabbit shooting. It rained for ten days straight; freezing cold; had an absolutely fantastic time.

We got two rabbits at an estimated cost of $397.00 each.

I had a similar problem with my dual fuel lantern. the valve at the bottom of the pump corroded and wouldn't let air in. I freed it up then it wouldn't keep the fuel in.

I replaced the valve with bits available from Coleman and now it's all good.

Thanks for the tips. Found the "problem", The tank was already fully pressurised.
Thanks, Peter
