My NorthStar dropped off a table and broke off the screw that is fixed inside the burner assembly. It seems I need to get a whole assembly in order to fix the issue. I have been unable to find the replacement part online and wondering if someone here can point me to that part, new or used.  
I can't identify the exact model but I've included a couple pics of the burner assembly for reference.   IMG_0181.jpg  IMG_0182w.jpg

First off, Welcome!

Our host has just what you are looking for. Also, when you put the mantle on, the clip goes in the notch on the burner. Not above it like in your photo. You will not strain the mantle as much this way.

A friend picked up a 275 several months ago, and when he removed the vent nut, the bolt fell in like yours.  It took some finagling with a magnet, but I managed to get the bolt protruding again and put a nut on it to hold it in place.  I’ve since found him a replacement burner.  

Know that you can’t solder that bolt in place.  It gets way too hot.  If you have access to a welder, I suppose you could tack it in place.  You best bet is likely as Dan suggested, and that’s to get a replacement burner.

You likely know this, but Dan’s suggestion for the mantle is when you go to replace it.  You won’t be able to do anything now that won’t destroy the existing mantle.  Probably a moot point as it will likely get destroyed trying to get the bolt to again protrude, if you go that route.

I've missed you!  But I'm reloading.

Thanks for the reply and also the tip on Mantle mounting!

I did see this part online but it is a different shape than the burner assembly on my lantern. The part you referenced has an angle at the top of the tube where mine goes straight into the mount on the top. I'd be concerned that that part would not ultimately fit.

JimL - thanks for these thoughts. I may try to find a shallow nut to try that out. Also, gotta find a magnet...

With some persistence and a good magnet, there is a fair chance you can fish the end of the bolt back thru. You might hard solder the bolt in place when fished out using a propane torch, but a quick fix might be to tightly wrap some thin wire around the bolt where it sticks out of the burner such that it will not drop back in. Unless the bolt is securely attached to the burner, threading the nut on might be a challenge.

Is this a propane Northstar?

Welcome to the forum.

I've repaired a couple of profane Coleman's with that issue with a MIG welder. A couple of zaps and they were back in business. A good 50%+ silver solder can be used to braze it on.

If you don't have a MIG maybe a friend does or a shop that fixes radiator's or is a solid "welding shop" can braze it. Offering a 12pk of adult beverage can usually get it done.

Thank you all for you help on this.  Here was my solution.  First, getting that screw out of the top with a magnet made me look like an idiot...could have been helped by a better magnet, I'm sure.  So I ended up looping some dental floss around the screw, tied an overhand knot onto the end and it pull right out! Super easy and I would recommend trying this.  Then, I didn't have a Mig and wasn't sure about the solder situation so I got a shallow 1/4in bolt and a lock washer.  Long term not sure how that will perform but the unit comes together perfectly (with some globe tab adjustment).

Thanks again for the help, this is a super friendly chat room and that's always good to see.

Cheers,
Joreme
