Most times the problem with these is that the batteries, though they show fully charged, are in poor condition.
Test: Count the cells in this unit and multiply by 1.2 test for that voltage, 4.8 is common, at the batterypack and turn the light on, if the voltage falls below 1 volt per cell, the battery protection circuit will engage and turn the light off. This is a battery problem.
If the voltage stays relatively steady, the bulb is the second item to be a common failure. Shine a flashlight across the base of the bulb where the 2 ends enter the white base. It the tubes are pretty blackened, your bulb is likely bad.
I don't have the specs for that switch, but it's a pretty simple device, it connects power from the batterypack to the inverter board or to the nightlight. It's simple to test with either an ohm meter (power disconnected) Or a volt meter, (Power connected)

SOURCE: Coleman stove (Coleman fuel only).

Is it possible that the part that screws into the propane cylinder is not opening the bottle all the way. This would alow enough gas to flow through to light but will not keep a flame because there is just not enough fuel flow. If this is the case you most likely can't fix it and need a new one. How old is it, if you can return it for a new one, do that, just to be on the safe side.

SOURCE: Coleman rechargable lantern Model 5327A750.

just read the charging instructions. Charge for 16-18 hours. If stored for more than 6 months recharge for the full 16 hours. Do not leave the lantern on after the battery has stopped, has overdischarging the battery can cause problems in recharging to a full charge. If this does happen, switch lantern to off and recharge for 40 hours.YES 40 hours. Only the LED is the only light to be used while charging. If you hane the other light on hi or low the battery does not charge.

Hope this helps

My lantern is not charging model 5312


Since the red led comes on it proves that the charger is working but since it is not able to charge the battery I would say that the battery is bad.

I have a coleman 5317 RC series lantern that wont go into the dim mode what can I do


Hello. I've just looked at several Coleman lamps, some have krypton bulbs (mainly battery powered), some spiral fluorescent bulbs (mainly mains powered/charged). If this one is yours http://www.coleman.com/Parts/100/parts-lanterns/5317-702/remote-control-pack-away-family-size-lantern# then it appears yours has a spiral fluorescent bulb. Gas discharge bulbs commonly are fired up by an initial high voltage pulse then followed by a continuous ac medium voltage (say 80 volts or so) to give a FIXED LIGHT OUTPUT.
THIS DOES NOT ALLOW CONTROLLED DIMMING. Dimming can usually only be done on an INCANDESCENT TYPE bulb eg an older type tungsten filament bulb. These are however much less efficient.
So in summary, if you do have a fluorescent bulb, I don't know why your remote indicates you can dim it. You could try switching the bulb for an incandescent type, but this should only be attempted by qualified persons. Check over the user manual again. Good Luck.

In the Coleman 5312 Retro Series Lamp is it supposed to work off the mains charger even if the battery will not charge. Battery is confirmed dead but lamp will not work on mains nor on 12v car lead. Don't...


Brentonb, In the event that you don't get a direct answer (which is likely, since this is a pretty obscure question) I suggest you troubleshoot it this way. Remove the bad battery. Use the charging device that came with the lantern and wire it temporarily to the device in place of the battery. This will supply the correct voltage, but takes the possibly shorted battery out of the circuit. If you are certain you have the polarity correct and you know that the charger works, then you have your answer. good luck.

Coleman rechargeable lantern: Charged overnight - not working, replaced bulbs - not working. What could it be:


Check the battery with a volt meter to make sure you have the correct voltage. If not, replace battery. If correct voltage, bypass switch to determine if it is good or not. If not, replace. There really isn't much to go wrong on the lanterns except the bulb or battery.
