Coleman powermate pm0545305 10hp brigg & stratton

Hi , can you give me a hand again please..
sorry for my bad english..
Ok , i can't start it , seems like there is no fire and after i tried it a couple of time there is too much gaz in the carb.. i wrote you about oil in the carb but i did a mistake it was gaz... i don't really know how to check if there is a spark.. i took the spark plug out (no damage on it , no gaz on it), put the wire on , tried to start but haven't seen spark . The thing it that 1 week ago everything was going well then i change the oil and i realize that there where no dip stick at all on both side .. i don't have the manual and i know that it will stop running if oil is too low.. i filled with oil about 2cm under the tread of the oil plug .. air filter is clean.. i really don't know what happened !!! i just change the oil and nothing works anymore.. Please if you can , give me a hand for the second time ! i'll apreciate it a lot.

Go ahead and feel the oil resevior full . it will not hurt it. if you really want to find out if it is firing. if you are tough enough, put your finger on the spark plug and barely pull pull cord. you will definitely know if you are getting fire. it does kinda hurt though.....ouch!

if it is getting fire, then make sure gas is good. you may have to remove the carb bowl. the carb float may be sticking and the float pin. if this is the case, you may want to spray them with carb cleaner. if you know how to remove the carburator. you could soak the whole carb in carb cleaner. let me know how this works.

    also the reason to cean carb is it may be getting too much gas. make sure you take it off choke once it starts.

A Coleman Powermate 6250 with a Briggs and Stratton engine new won't crack. Got gas to crab and motor full of oil. Spray starting fluid in it it until it's gone. Why wouldn't it start? ??


If its new, SOME generators will not start unless at least 3/4 full of gas. Spark plugs secured all the way in? Gas switch on? Pull the choke? NO MORE starting fluid, Bad Louie, BAD! some of the suggestions i posted above may help :) but, no more starting fluid.

Briggs and Stratton GenPower 11 generator cover plate ???


I have a Briggs & Stratton GENPOWER 11 generator that is electric start. The electric start will not start the motor or ever turn it over. I can turn the key on and jump across the terminals on the starter and it will run only if I continue to squirt starter fluid in the carb. My question is, if the ignition switch is bad, could that be the reason it will not stay running. My only guess is if the ignition switch is bad, the motor thinks it is in the off position at all times. Thanks, R Ray

Where do i get a coil at?


Well, if Briggs and Stratton engine, then try briggs and stratton.

If Robin / Subaru engine, try there.

Write down the model type and serial numbers, then pay a visit to local small engine repair shop and have them order for you.

you can check the oil on both sides. one side should have a dipstick. normally just fill it up all the way. you say oil is in the carb. spray some starter fluid in carb. and make sure air filter is clean. try to crank it and see if it will start. let me know if this took care of problem
