I had the unpleasant experience today of taking a propane stove into
the Coleman outlet because it needs repair - left burner will hardly
burn & the right one even less umph. When you turn the R knob on, the
left flame gets lower yet.... It took the troop over an hour to get a
pot of water boiling on a weekend campout we just had & the outdoor
temp was in the 80's - elevation NOT a problem.
Anyway, I was told "we don't do any repairs anymore". When I asked
what I should do, they said "you fix it - we will sell you the parts".
Well, for those of you more mechanical than some of the rest of us
this might work - but if we knew how to fix the thing to begin with,
never would have taken it in for repair.
I am Not a happy camper right now. If Coleman can't offer service
anymore, I see little point in buying from them. I certainly am not
going to recommend their products anymore.
In the mean time, who can tell me how to fix this propane stove? (2
burner, electronic ignition)
