Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
I have a Coleman Powermate PM0612023.9.... it will not start. It cranks, but won't turn over...looking for manual...please help. Thanks in advance.
I had the exact same problem. There a few things you need to do first.
1) Make sure the fuel line knob is turned to the Open position; this knob is located under the gas tank.
2) Turn the power switch to on : it is a little red switch located near the pull-handle on the front of the generator. It needs to be on 'I' not on 'O'
3) Turn the choke lever on: it is a little steel lever with an arrow at the tip. Move the lever in the direction the arrow is pointing.
4) Make sure you have gas left in the tank: it may have evaporated or gummed up if you did mix in a fuel stabilizer before putting it away for storage.
If none of these things work , then you carburator may be full of water and gas lines gummed up.
These Gens need to be started up at least once a month to make sure they keep working properly.

It is one year old but only used twice. New gas. Was working. Is getting fire. Wants to start just won't turn over. Not sure if I'm missing a step like a switch or something. Was working 6 months ago.
