Summary:
This little stove performed great during five days of cooking for two people. It's light and powerful and preforms as well other stoves that cost at least twice as much.

Summary:
I love it when you young dudes try to reinvent the wheel. I've had my Peak 1/ Model 400 since it was new-longer than most of you are old.;-) The is a VERY basic backpacking stove (and its variants). Maybe I have a better understanding of it because I started out camping with the huge, two burner Coleman, 'Green Monsters'. As been said, you "can" take off the generator assembly and heat the gen with a propane torch. What makes this voodoo science, is that nobody states how long. Some would say "common sense dictates"...well that's just a cop-out for not knowing the answer. While this method works, the valve packing for the HI/LO lever can melt out black ooze (packing material)...not good in any valve and that's what it is; a valve. Also, try to make sure all your old gas is out of the gen, or it will catch fire. I would heat with a propane torch until the gen brass is just before the 'cherry red' stage and work your torch along the whole length-not just in one spot. You could also wrap a wet washcloth around the HI/LO valve packing assembly. Then, take plumber's sand-cloth afterward and clean everything external to look like new. Most of the time this is unnecessary however, because there is a tiny needle that advances through a orifice to clean the gen. If the gen orifice is plugged, this needle will bend easily and serve no purpose. You can unscrew the orifice with a wrench and check the needle. Screw the orifice back on with just your fingers and work the HI/LOW lever; you should see the needle move in and out freely (very tiny)...then if satisfied that it's working properly, wrench tight. If you have to straighten the needle, use pliers without teeth; be very careful, it's fragile. Other than physical damage, that's about all that can go wrong except for the pump leather. Use neatsfoot oil to recondition the leather (with ANY fuel based leathers); working it carefully with your fingers until supple and saturated. I have two Phoebus 725 stoves that will run circles around this Coleman, but they don't simmer. After burning the bottom of countless backpacking pans with those little rockets engines, I consider this feature HUGE! People that bail on the Peak 1's, don't fully understand how these stoves work. *Important*, if you have used the simmer feature and are about to shut the stove off, run the HI/LO lever back and forth a few times and leave it on HI for like 30 seconds....then turn the stove off with the red-handled valve. I wished my Phoebus would simmer.;-)

Summary:
I got this a few years ago, so I guess it's the "older" version. Anyway it has worked great. I've taken it backpacking and used for cooking all our meals. Boils water in two minutes at higher elevations. Puts out a massive flame. Lots of power.

On the last backpacking trip, we split milk and sauce on it. It started sputtering and then went out. I disconnected it, shook it out, reconnected it and it worked again.

I'd like to be able to clean it so I'm looking for a maintance kit.

Summary:
I bought this on clearance as I figured at $10 it was to good to pass up. They have started selling them again for $24. The stove is excellent as are all Coleman products are. It is well built, lights easily and burns well. Easily adjustable flame. I have not used it in any extremely cold weather or tough conditions. I like it though.

Customer Service:
Have not needed to contact them.
