Hi All,

I have a propane fueled instant Grill that uses a 5430 regulator.  The seals on both the regulator and the mating connection on the stove have dried out and cracked.  I have been able to find what i hope to be a replacement regulator online, but have not been successful in finding the mating seal.  Anyone know where these can be sourced?

The regulator to stove seal is contained within the tip of the regulator.  It is a small o-ring.

I hear what you are saying, though I am not sure that is how this regulator seals on the grill.  There is a white plastic bushing in the end of the regulator, but I think it actually seals on the black rubber/plastic piece on the grill side.  As you tighten the screw thread, it compresses into this part, which on my grill is clearly split (see zoomed in image attached).

Here is a seal that is used between the fuel tank and the regulator. It may be close. Take some measurements from yours and see if it is the same size. The old one will pull off and you slide the new one on. This one is sold by the host of the forum.

Harbor Freight also has a O ring assortment had has one that is real close to this. I could not come up with a on line photo of the kit to help you out.

The o-ring is in deeper, just beneath the white plastic insert.  It is a -022 o-ring, 3/16 id, 5/16 od, and seals on the outside of the brass tube in the photo.  I know all this because it crippled my grill on my last camping trip.  Replacing the o-ring repaired the regulator, and I also purchased a spare regulator to bring on future trips.

  That flat washer is just under 3/16 id, is 1/2 od, and just over 1/16 thick.  It is far smaller than the tank to regulator washer.  It would appear to be https://www.mcmaster.com/90133A017/, but I cannot verify the material selected by Coleman.

Just checked my local Ace hardware.  They had 3/16 id, 1/2 od neoprene washers in the hardware bins for 33 cents.  It appears to be identical.

Just a correction to my earlier post.  The tiny o-ring in the tip of the regulator is a size -008.   I don't know what I was thinking when I originally typed the size.

Thanks all.  I have purchased a replacement regulator, and will search around for that small washer.  Unfortunately we don’t have ACE hardware stores up here, and not many stock loose neoprene washers, but I am sure that I can find one.
i will also likely use the rest of the information that you have provided to rebuild my old regulator so that I have a spare.  Thanks again.
