SOURCE: coleman model 16 space heater

there are 2 knobs, the generator knob is the smaller of the two

there is a cap with knurles around the edge and a screw in the center, take that off and add coleman fuel.

this cap may leak air because the gaskets get old and crack- so pump it up and put some soapy water on it and see if you get bubbles

okay THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! if you have never fired one of these up before~~~~~ dont do it in your kitchen-- you will burn your house down--- fire it up outside first to see how it works!

SOURCE: When I light my Coleman Catalytic Heater, it burns

The wick isnt drawing up any fuel? Does this heater have a primer?

Could the wick be sitting above the fuel inside the tank?

You might just try changing wicks and restarting.

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...

If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.
