User Review: Coleman Fyrestorm Ti Stove
Price Paid: $189.90
April 10, 2007: I have spent three weeks going over the trouble shooting procedures and calling Coleman customer service (Coleman corporate customer service is very professional and as helpful as they could be over the phone), but I still could not get the Coleman Fyrestorm TI backpacking stove to work in more than one out of five attempts. It would either flame up a big yellow or the nice blue flame would die out or there would be fuel leaks in dangerous places.
I finally broke the fuel line support going into the generator attempting to make the umpteenth adjustment.
My 18 backpacking trips within the last five months and my extensive experience with liquid / pump pressure stoves like the Coleman Fyrestorm TI still did not prepare me for the constant string of difficulties encountered with persistent yellow flame ups and operating flame outs.
I tried all sorts of alternate pumping pressure levels, fuel adjuster valve levels to start and warm up, but the Fyrestorm still found new ways to just die out. I even tried lubricating the pump mechanism as suggested in the manual - did you notice the "oil" hole at the top of the pump body?
I am taking the Fyrestorm TI back today for a refund, anticipating that the Coleman factory outlet stores here in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville Tennessee will be just as honorable as they have always been, which is truly exemplary. Coleman as a company has always made it right with me over the years on the very few troubles I have encountered with their gear.
Oh, by the way, on the isobutane / propane fuel, the Fyrestorm TI started up quickly and perfectly, but developed a fuel and flame leak out the fuel adjuster handle, right where it would burn your fingers.
