I purchased my 425F Coleman Campstove in 1978. It served me well until I stopped camping in 2003. This year I started camping with my daughter and her family and I retrieved the stove from my son. I remember that I had a issue with the stove even long ago and that is it will not fully turn off. I have cleaned the generator but it still leaks gas and continues to burn long after it should stop. The only solution is to remove the tank and open the cap. That can be quite flaming at time when the generator tip exits the manifold. My question is: do I need a new generator? Also, what is the life expectancy of the generator?
Any assistance would be appreciated.

The generator does not have any device to shut stove off in it. You need to fix or better, replace the valve, the part the generator screws into.

Depending on how you are using stove, it may stay lit for a minute after shutting off valve. 
Does stove eventually shut off by itself?

Stove generators are very large and simple and will last a loooooooooong time.

Running a " wanted: 425f tank or valve" add in our classifieds should get you a replacement tank or valve for cheap.

Thanks Keith. I have ordered the valve and generator. I realize the generator has no seat or gasket. That is in the valve. However, was not sure what was causing the leak and if it was repairable without replacement.
