Top 20 Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator Questions & Answers


The first thing to check is the air filter. Make sure you replace or clean it well. The second thing, if that doesn't fix it, is your fuel. If it's gas, change it. If it's propane, make sure it's got correct pressure., possible bad pressure regulator.

The plug is under the gas tank. They can be difficult to get to and you may have to remove/loosen the tank. If you can remove the spark plug wire you could test for spark. If you have a spark and it still doesn't crank the spark plug is probably the least of your worries unless you drained the tank and the carb (most people don't.)
If you have a spark give a spritz of starter fluid into the carb after removing the air filter and see if it runs for even a bit. If it does fire and doesn't run, clean the carb.
Good luck.

Is the air filter severely stopped up ?
Check and clean the filter and eliminate it as the cause.

I am guessing this is caused by some type of floating debris in your tank. I think that unit might just have a simple grommet holding the outlet fitting into the bottom of the tank. Try removing the outlet fitting and try to make sure the tank and fitting are free from debris.

You will either need to find a Coleman dealer in a store, in the phone book, or online.
Ask them for the part number of the switch, and then you can buy it in a store, or on the computer.
There is a store in Branson, Missouri, we were in last year.
On the computer, try Amazon or e-bay after you get a part number. God bless your efforts.

What might you be trouble shooting may I ask. Or go find your owners manual online at Colman.com.

It may run for awhile in this condition, but eventually it will stop running and be completely ruined. I WOULD NOT RUN THIS WITH A BLOWN HEAD GASKET! My advice is to either find a replacement part, a manual and fix it, or find an authorized repair shop and have them fix it.

It may run in this condition for a bit, but it will eventually stop running and be in need of serious repairs. I would find a shop to replace the head gasket or a manual and gasket and fix it before running it again.

Check the circuit breaker(s) - also try connecting a smaller load to the generator to start out with, such as a table lamp. What are you trying to connect to the generator?

Hi Bob:
Sounds like the engine is seized.
Try removing enough bits so you can access the flywheel and see if you can turn it. Make sure ignition is OFF.
If the flywheel does not turn it will be time for a learning experience, a trip to the maintenance shop, or a replacement.

Hello Diana,

My name is Larry Boccioletti, I am a coleman repairman from Ontairo Canada. The Coleman you have I am presuming is a generator. Coleman do not supply engine parts for the generator.
If you can supply me the serial number I will try and locate what horsepower your unit is and the engine manufacturer. I will also
get you the part number and Canadian price for the carb.
That's the best I can do for now.
Thanks

The four wire 220 twist lock receptacle Two hot wires, one neutral, and a safety ground. Depending on your generators setup the neutral and ground are bonded as one; unless, it setup for a floating neutral.
You would normally connect the two hots and neutral. and leave the ground open on the four prong twist lock plug. Just make sure the compressor is earth grounded on its end.

A few things can cause lack of spark at the ignition coil. This assumes pointless ignition system.

  • The stop terminal is intentional grounded IE stop switch on.
  • The stop circuit is shorted to ground.
Remove the plug wire from the plug so engine can not start. Remove the stop wire from the coil and try starting the engine while testing spark. If spark is now present then check the stop circuit.
  • The coil pack itself is bad.
  • Flywheel magnets are demagnetized.
These can check by seeing they attract heavy metal object strongly.
