So, I sat down this evening to fire up my new lanterns and I’m a bit puzzled by the Jan-2000 288. The globe has a lot of play in it, around the edge, as well as at the top.

Any input?

You have the wrong heat shield for the that globe base.  Some globe bases have springs attached.  At some point Coleman switched to a heat shield with spring extensions.  

I’m putting my daughter to bed and will try to get pictures for you after bedtime.

I think this is what John is talking about. If the base has riveted on springs then it uses a simple heat shield. If not you need a heat shield with the springs on it. These are single mantle lanterns but the concept is the same.  802B67DA-C2F6-40E6-9787-106884D9B02C.jpeg  4DAA2FC2-5D86-4C9E-96E7-D680A5E19C72.jpeg

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.

You could try placing an ad in the classifieds but I doubt you’ll be able to do much better than OCP’s $5 plus shipping.

So if I get the shield, my globe will fit better, correct?

It will still be a bit loose, Jason, but there won't be as much movement as you have now.

correct, you can bend the prongs up if you need to.  The vent applies downward pressure on the globe and the springs “cushion” it.

Thank you everyone. Guess it’s just part of learning. The seller told me it had never been fired, and apparently I didn’t know what I was looking at. Seems odd for having never been fired, it doesn’t have the right piece.  Makes me scratch my head. Lol

It does look unfired from here and most people agree the 288 is a great lantern.

Did you polish the generator and burner tubes?  I have never seen an unfired lantern with that level of shine on the exposed brass bits.  


It may never have been fired.  Factory mess ups happen.  My first NorthStar dual fuel had the wrong generator on it from the factory.  There was a recall on that model for a few months in 2011.

I wiped the majority of it down with simichrome, but it looks just like it did for the most part out of the box. 


ok, well that’s good to know. Like I said, a lot to learn for this newbie. 


I appreciate everyone’s help though. Hopefully one day I will be able to help others as they start their collection.

Until you can get the appropriate parts, you might be able to shim the globe a little to reduce the rattle. To get the below globe to not rattle in my 285 lantern, I used some simple shims made from folded up aluminum foil. The frosted globe is ~1/8" shorter than the normal globe and rattled even sitting on the globe springs. Get strips of foil about 1" wide and start folding them over not so tight that the piece can't be folded. I put mine on the top so they are not noticed. Don't make the foil pieces such that tightening the vent nut puts much downward force on the globe.

I don’t have this model and can’t comment on the heat shield issue, but a lot of globes rattle a lot and were designed to do so. If the lantern appears new and works fine, what the heck. ðŸ™‚

If you are concerned about the rattle when you are transporting them you can try doing what I do. I have some clean shop towels that I fold over and wrap around the globe on the bottom. I put it between the frame and the globe itself like on my 200s it keeps the glass steady so it doesn't rattle and possibly crack or break while you are transporting them. It works great in my truck which rides really rough.

You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

these lanterns don’t have cages or uptight supports like the CL2/220 series/or 200a.  They need the springs to keep the globe in place if moving the lantern from the patio to garage, let alone packing and driving anywhere.  Without the spring, it’s feasible the globe could shift/tip and wack the mantle or break on the circular mixing chamber.  Don’t ask me how I know....

No globes seem to rattle as bad to me as a newly acquired 242 globe in the back seat of my truck. Especially if it’s a desirable globe.

Thank you John.  I understand the issue better now.  Might even have to buy one of the darn things!

Glad you got your question answered. I just recently got my first 288 and was looking for the same information. Previous threads and info from this thread helped clarify it for me. Now let's see a money shot. 

Greg is right. The more desirable the globe the more they rattle and the higher your blood pressure goes.
