Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

3 Answers

Generator is not working!

Just bought a new Coleman Powermate PM0525202.03 Electric Generator 2 weeks ago and the engine works but not the generator. It worked for about 6 days and then just died one night. What could be the problem?

    Yea, that is silly.... We tried everything... Even had an electrician check it, but couldn't find anything wrong. He's not a generator technician though. IT's gotta be something easy...

    Wow... I'll try it and let you know... THat would be great if that's whole problem....

    I have the same problem with a 2500, used it a few times and then the generator won't work. It appears that the armiture is broke?

    I had the same problem, after cheking the regulator in side the back cover I found the regulator circuit board fried and shorted-out the gen set. At this time I can not find replacement parts?

Had same thing happen. If you read real closely in the manual there will be a brief paragraph about "re-exciting" the generator. Basically you take the plastic cover off that goes over the brushes on the back of the generator. Take a 12 volt car battery and apply voltage to them (mine is negative on left and positive on right). The generator has to be running when you do this and you also have to have something like a light plugged in. The light should begin to get brighter and brighter until the full output of the generator is working. I am not positive but I believe that this is caused by an "exciter" capacitor in the generator getting discharged. Again, if I have understood it correctly these generators need a charge to "jump start" them and it is done via a capacitor. Hope this helps, I know I was going nuts when mine did this and I had no idea what to do.

if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
