    Not sure if this is the best place for this thread but:

    I have a Coleman Model 440 dual fuel stove that I have been using unleaded fuel in. I use it a lot, along with my kerosene heater, in my garage when we are hanging out drinking/etc. When I pulled it out this season, I tried to fire it up as normal but it wouldn't lite. I figured that the generator assembly was AFU so I looked at cleaning it and trying the remedies I found online. (The reason I think it is the generator is, the valve still spews fuel once pressure is built up in the tank.) The online remedy was to hit it with a torch to burn out the carbon, etc. It appeared to work since I had smoke/unburnt fuel coming out of both ends. Unfortunately, when I put it back together it still wouldn't work. Y'all have any ideas?

    Those are great little stoves. My first thought would also be the generator. I don't think that heating up the generator with a torch would clean it very much. I would buy a replacement generator for it and use white gas instead of unleaded. I have heard that unleaded isn't as clean and can clog things up. Good luck.
