When I first got the 229 it seemed to require pumping up every 15-20 minutes as some had reported but ran OK otherwise.  I replaced the stock gen with one from a 222. I found a couple NLA originals on Ebay. This gen is for white gas only and I was hoping to extend the run time between pumps. It looks to be a good remedy and extended the run time to 45 minutes or so before the fount had to be pumped up. 
It just developed a problem where it runs for a minute or less and then shuts down like it's out of fuel. 
The fount has pressure and does not leak from the fuel cap. While it was under pressure and had just gone out as described above, I fiddled with the valve knob. There was no fuel or hiss unless the valve was in one spot the middle of it's range.  I popped the clips and removed the valve.  The small blue O ring has a chunk missing and debris from the O ring was laying in the valve body.  I'm guessing the debris was restricting fuel flow to the gen. Thinking back, the valve did feel a little weird when turning back and forth and the detent and click when closing the valve wasn't always uniform.  Pumping up the fount and pushing the valve block with a small screwdriver produced plenty of fuel and a couple more bits of blue O ring so I think that confirms the deteriorated O ring as the culprit. It probably didn't hurt to flush out the pickup tube and valve anyway.
No luck searching the archives here for a source for blue O rings.  I don't see them listed in the online store but have inquired there about them. 
Local hardware stores don't have them.  Does anyone know of a source for these. Is there a kit that contains both O rings for the valve?Any input or first hand experience with these little buggers would be appreciated.
Thanks!!

I found an old forum thread and an ebay link to a Canadian selling these O-rings but there's nothing there now and no items currently for sale.  It might have been the same fellow you're thinking of.
A new valve assembly is shown as discontinued from Coleman but available from a third party who sells replacement parts for $18.  Opening the valve up was pretty simple. I'm pretty sure a pair of new O rings would do it.  I called a few more places and no one carries the blue high temp O-rings.  Might have to try a furnace repairman

I'd try McMaster-Carr.  They have high temp o=rings and "Atlas" O rings that are said to be resistant to everything including heat.

McMaster basically has everything, to do anything, and an encyclopedic website that is pretty mind blowing the level of detail.

That's not a bad idea to get several of them from a bulk supplier.  I'd have to find a local machinist and borrow their calipers to get an accurate measurement of the one I have now.

That would be great Dan.  I was looking over the McMaster website and they do have blue high temp silicon O rings.  I just have to figure out the size.  The forward O ring is blue and the one to toward the knob is black.  I haven't popped them off the shaft yet but they look like the same size.  Not sure why one is high temp and the other is not.  Maybe just the Coleman way of keeping costs down by a couple cents by only using the more expensive O ring where it's needed.
I know you have several of these micro lanterns.  Is O ring replacement a fairly regular thing for these.  Mine is dated 07/06.  Kind of surprised it needs replaced after only six years. 
I think i'll put a light smear of silicone grease on the o ring when it goes back in.

It would be great to find a good source for these.  Make sure they are blue, I think it means flourosilicone.  Size is important, I bought a canadian lantern from someone who had replaced with a blue o ring but it was slightly too large. As a result the valve did not function properly.

I ordered some from an online site.  I also needed some for an old air pistol lol. but got zapped when they emailed back and said it will be 4-6 weeks.  ugh  that was two weeks ago so will let you know. anyway theu had a $5 minimum and these puppies are only about a quarter each.

any way a previous post stated that they were a -005 and -009 size. the numbers (diameter/thickness) are a standard within the o-ring world. If these sizes don't work out my next order will be size -005 through -010 just to ensure i hit the right size.

google o rings and several sites will open up and be ready to spend that $5.  

Good luck and let us know how it goes

-009   for the valve stem.

I have not yet taken my 222b apart to verify the dimensions.

I have found another O-ring web site that has dimensions and the AS568

you can try: O-ring USA  
I linked to the page with the dimensions to the AS568 number.

Hey Curly,
   The two O rings in the 229  valve are the same size.  One is high temp and the other is not.  I found a good set of calipers and measured them this morning.  I've placed an order with McMaster Carr.

For anyone who's interested, the O rings  measure  

ID  7/32

OD  11/32

Width or thickness  1/16

Price is $3.48 pkg.  I'll post back when I get these and verify that it is exactly what I need. I should have them in a day or two.  McMaster Carr is near Cleveland


The part number from McMaster Carr is

Silicone O-Ring AS568A Dash Number 009, packs of 25

According to the McMaster-CARR catalogue, the Viton o-rings have the same high temp rating as the silicon o-rings and have better abrasion resistance.  Viton's not quite as good in the cold though.

I wondered about the PTFE ones. But I think they are too hard.


When I measured the one for the e-block I measured 5/32 ID and 9/32 OD and 1/16 thickness which would be a 007. Now my measurement are based off of the chewed up used one, but I came up with a 009 for the ones on the valve stem. Which concurs with other's findings.

So which one is right for the e-block 005 or 007? will they both work? Hmmmmm.

Devon,  which model lantern are you referring to?  While I had the calipers, I measured the valve shaft and the diameter where the two O rings sit are the same.  Again,  I'm only dealing with the 229 model.  I believe the earlier models were different when it came to valve design.

Mark, I am speaking of the 229. I came out with the same measurment for the two o-rings that are on the valve. I just came up with a different measurment for the one on the e-block. I came up with a o-ring size of 007. Again I'm not sure that's right due to the fact that my o-ring is a little chewed up. I'm just wondering if the 007 and 005 will both work because they are so close in size. I'm working on putting together a order from our host and have also ordered the 007 and 009's from McMaster's. I just didn't happened upon this thread untill after already placing the one order. Whoops.

By the way I measured the blue o-ring that our host sells for the Canadian lanterns. It is the same size as the one's for the valve shaft of a 229. I happened to have a couple that I picked up for a 321B and they are the same. I'm also willing to bet that the 3pc o-ring set he has for Canadian lanterns has the right size for the 229 e-block as well. I will be trying these also. Thanks!

Good thread by the way!

OCP Friends - I've recently developed a love affair for these "mini" lanterns.  I too needed o-rings and had trouble finding a source since the one unfortunate member had a house fire.

I bit the bullet and ordered them from Amazon.  The downside was that I had to buy them in packs of 100.  Oh well, more minis to rebuild 

Since others are having problems sourcing these o-rings, I'd be willing to sell them.  I have all 3 sizes, all in flourosilicone:

005 - 3/32" ID x 7/32" OD - Fits the e-block on older Canadians and US models - my 222 and 226 used this
007 - 5/32" ID x 9/32" OD - Fits the e-block on the new models - my 229 uses this
009 - 7/32" ID x 11/32" OD - Fits the valve on all models

Someone please correct me if I have something incorrect.

These things essentially cost me a quarter each, so I'll pass that on to other OCP members.  I think they'll fly for a single stamp (unless you want a LOT of them).  PM me for what a how many you want and we'll work something out.

I only pulled out the valve stem and am replacing the two O rings there.  I just looked over an exploded view of the 229 and the valve is shown as one unit with no detail.  On any other lantern the fuel has to pass around the eccentric block to get to the gen so I'm just trying to picture this in my head without going out to the shop and taking the lantern apart.  Where is the E block O ring located?

tsmerian,  that's nice of you to offer those hard to find O rings to the forum.  I would make the same offer as I doubt I'll need more than a few even I bought another small lantern. Also, about the fire you mentioned, which O ring failed causing the lantern to catch fire.  Any information about that?  

Thanks

I happened to have a picture of mine all taken apart so I will share it. If you take the valve assm off the fount, and then unscrew the f/a tube the e-block will slide out the f/a tube side. as long as the valve stem is also pulled out that is.  The little o-ring in the first picture is the one that I need to replace that is chewed up. It fits right in the recess closest to the end where the o-ring is sitting. It is also the part that actually shuts the fuel off. I will also add a few pics of all 4 o-rings in a line up.








The o-ring on the right in the line up is the one that seals the f/a tube to the valve.  It is the same size as the one on the plastic 288 feed tube. OCP also sells it as just a gasket.  Hope this helps.

The photos help a lot Devon, Thank you!

So from left to right in this photo...  E block,  valve stem inner,  valve stem outer,  pickup tube to valve body

Is the E block O ring size 007?  Do you recall the size or dimensions of the pickup tube O ring?





tsmarien,   I measured the valve stem O rings as a size 009.  I won't make any claims until the ones I ordered show up and I can verify but that's how
it looked when I pulled the O rings off and measured them.  Your ID and OD figures for 006 must be backward. 

And,  I'd be curious about how the 222 and 226 look when broken down.  Anyone have photos of those?

No problem on the photos. sorry for the quality, good old phone pics. You are correct on the order of the o-rings Mark. I came up with 007 for the e-block o-ring with 5/32 ID and 9/32 OD and 1/16 width.
The p/u tube I came up with 5/16 ID and 3/8 OD with 1/32 for width. but that one is so flimsy it's tough to measure. It is the exact same as what is on a 288 feed assm ( I had one to compare it too ). For the valve stem I also came up with a 009 or 7/32 ID and 11/32 OD with 1/16 for width.

Thanks for helping out with my post Flat Twin & Sobright.  I corrected the ID/OD figures for the 006, since they were indeed backwards.  I really think that the 009 on the valve stem will be too big.  I'll take pictures today.

From what I've gathered, all the mini lanterns are MOSTLY the same.  Some of the early Canadian models have an e-block that uses the 009 o-ring.  Some models only have one o-ring on the valve stem too.  I've found this thread to be most useful: http://colemancollectorsforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/Canadian-EasiLite-Valves-5939759?highlight=rings

As far as the house fire that one of the members had - I don't believe it was due to a lantern.  I don't know him personally so I probably shouldn't have said anything.  I found out about it during my quest for o-rings, just like you guys.

Happy Holidays all...

ok gang, I just got some o-rings in the mail, and finished a project. I took lots of pictures. Again sorry for the cell phone quality. First up is a pic with the original o-rings installed.





Next is with new rings in baggies.






Now the next couple have the new rings on the bottom.






Now you can probably see that the new o-ring for the e-block is a little smaller (above pic). The new one is a 007  and the old one is also chewed up and a little stretched. The old ones on the valve stem on mine were still good, but since I was in there anyway I might as well change them. Now here is a couple pics with the new rings installed.






The new rings are a little bit harder than the old ones. I am not sure what the hardness of the old ones was but the new ones are A75. Hopefully they will be a little bit more durable. Everything went back together perfect. I used some silicone grease on all of the o-rings before installation to help with lubrication. I leak checked all the fittings with as much pressure as I could pump in the fount and soapy water, and guess what? NO LEAKS!!! WOOHOO!!! So I finished putting it back together, fueled it, fired it. It has full adjustment of light, and even shuts off now. Here is a few pic of low, med, and high.










on a side note I made a few adjustments to the f/a rod and generator. Before it also used to run out of pressure after 10 min or so and would never use the last 1/3 of a tank of fuel. Now it goes at least 30 min on a full pump and uses all the fuel it can reach. But we can save that for a diff thread.

Devon,  Again thanks for the detailed pics even if they're from a phone.  I am curious about why you went with viton rather than silicone.  I may not be reading the charts right but it looks like the silicone O rings are rated for slightly higher temps.  I'm no engineer but maybe there are other reasons Coleman went with silicone O rings.

The photo of the new and old O ring for the E block make me wonder what an 008 O ring laid next to them would look like.
The new one on the E block shaft looks a little tight but then again I'm only looking at photos.

Truth be told I don't think plain silicone o-rings are fuel rated. I also went with what was cheap and looked like it would work. That way if I was wrong it wouldn't be a big loss. The Viton is fuel rated and is a little harder to hopefully not get cut up in the moving e-block. It looks like the chart they have doesn't contain the same info as each individual page for the o-ring types does. If you check this page it is what I ordered. They seemed to look ok for the temp range so I went for it.  I got 200 o-rings delivered to my door for $ 15.30 and in 2 days. 

  I was also wondering about the 008 for the e-block, but the 007 fits so tight that the 008 might just end up getting the edges sheared off when its closed. Plus I guess really the width of the ring is what really matters. A 007 is getting that 1/16 inch width stretched out just enough to open and close well and still seal. 008 might be tough to close. Or it could work perfectly or with no difference.  I'm only guessing. 

  I do have to say that this has been a blast. Really before this thread I knew nothing about o-rings sizes and the different types.  Just one more reason I love the CCF and you guys

I'm not sure why Coleman went with the one silicon ring either but that seems to be the one that fails. Viton has a much greater wear resistance and the failure of the blue ring seems to bare that out.

true... I opted for Viton because multiple o-ring sites recommended that for the gasoline fuel. I did email one about the o-ring for the high pressure gas vs the Viton rings and they eventually replied that for a low pressure high temp gasoline system such as a lantern, or automobile, they recommend the Viton 70.  The High pressure rings were designed for applications where the gas would cause temps to reach a below zero mark. I got lost in the rest of the reply

OK - I corrected my o-ring chart again.  You guys are correct - the 009 is for the valve.

These mini lanterns are very interesting.  Its seems like Coleman changed them frequently to keep us on our toes

Take all the changes in the e-block for instance - and the fact that some models have valve stems with 2 o-rings and some have 1.  My info isn't complete (or necessarily correct), but I think the real early 222s used the 007 on it.  They also have the long rod going down the F/A tube like their big brothers.  Then, at some point, they eliminated the rod and went to a smaller bottom on it that uses the 006 o-ring.  I have a 1984 222 that is this case.  My 226 (1996) is the same way.  The 226 itself is a little weird.  They went away from the post for the fount/frame connection and used a collar with a knob resembling the 286/288/290 series.  I think they did that intentionally to make all the new "dual fuel" models look the same during that period (mid-90's I'd say).  I still think the 226 looks the best...  Then the 229 comes with all the "exponent" fanfare.  Guess what - back to the 007-style e-block.  There are even 2 variants of the 229 that have different ways of attaching the fount to the frame (a nut on a long threaded rod vs. a bolt to the fount).

I didn't get into these small lanterns until earlier this year - and I never understood why people liked them or why they demanded so much (comparatively to the "big" models) on forums and eBay.  It's safe to say that they've become a favorite for me now.  So many variants over a small time span.  They were only around for what, 30-ish years?  The 220/228 changed very little over a 30-year period from the 40s-70s...  I really wish Coleman still made the minis - who knows, some day they may once again.

It's been a great thread all.  Let's hug it out!

Ok My O-ring order came in today.  Woohoo!!

got right to it after supper and put in the new rings. good thing too. once i touched the old ones they fell right off. didn't have too many tanks left in them.

Any way here are the before and after pics of the valve. My 222B only has one O-ring on the E-block and one on the valve wheel.




So, while different than some others, the valve wheel used a -009 and the E-block a -005. they are Viton75, rolled on without any problems and the assembly went back together easy as can be. I did try a -009 on the FA tube where it meets the valve assy but found that it was a bit too thick to clear the threads. So, I went back to the thread sealer. anyway, after I finish my rebuild of my childhood CO2 pistol, I should have two or three sets as spares.

And as stated before, I love these threads and this site!!  Merry Christmas everyone

"... I really wish Coleman still made the minis - who knows, some day they may once again."

Well, they haven't stopped!
They just don't market them in North America!

Check out the Coleman Japan website, a green 229;

I've been following this thread with interest as our Scout group has two 222s and one has developed a fault, which I have to investigate.
So "thank you" to all the contributors, for providing everyone with the very useful and helpful documentation.
All that is needed now, is a complete rebuild kit (containing all the proper temperature rated 'O' rings for 222/229s) being made available from OCP!

Many thanks again, to all the above.
Season Greetings

p.s. I wasn't looking forward to the '222' fettling job, until I read this thread! T.L.

Tons of time consuming research and resultant knowledge in this thread.  This one needs to be preserved for sure.

Agreed.....not the right O-Rings can result in catastrophic failure. Space Shuttle Challenger is a perfect example.
