Question about Coleman Electronics - Others

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)

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.

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
