Coleman® Stove & Burner User Manuals

User's Manuals contain the manufacturer's safety, lighting, storage and care instructions.

If you don't have one for your appliance, you should be able to find a scan of it here. All manuals are in Adobe .pdf format and you are encouraged to print them off for future reference.

We are always looking to provide more manuals! If you have an old Coleman® User Manual that is not listed here and you'd be willing to share it with everyone, please make a high-resolution scan and send it to if you are willing to share.

Always inspect the stove before you use it, even if it was just yesterday.  Look for damp spots and test the function of each control.
