Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
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.

You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Take a look at your outlets. Some of these units use pretty cheap outlets and short out. You will know if it is bad when you look at it. Hope this helps.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.
