    I have a made in Germany Day Lite 500CP?
    The non return valve on the pump loses air.
    I tried to clean it with no success.
    Is there a replacement part for this model is Europe? The nitrile seal under the spring is very hard to remove.I don t want to damage the NRV.



    This is the lantern.
    Day Lite (made in Germany)
    Any info on this lantern would be welcomed,

    Thank you

    Agostino

    Hello Agostino,

    There are no Daylite replacements for sale in europe. But I guess that similair 500cp lantern parts will fit ? I guess it is the standard px type ?
    Also most pressure freaks over here make their own seals.

    I installed a petromax NRV with no effort.
    Petromax parts fit this model perfectly.
    Thank you for your help.

    I just got a green Day Lite. Does anyone have a clue about when it was made?

    This lamp was manufactured by Meyer&Miss in Hamburg Bergedorf.
    This ist the last version.
    You can see it on the refined manometer.
    Patent No DE000001556064A
    Most parts are not compatible with Petromax parts.

    Regards Reinhard

    It's a great lantern. Had to change the pricker and tighten the generator nut. New mantle, fuel, and pre-heat. Fired right up.

    Hopefully I won't need to replace too many parts. It's working fine at the moment. Thanks for the information.
