Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Get a DMM that can measure frequency (Hz), then check that with no load and the idle control set to off the frequency is 61.5 Hz - If it isn't you have to troubleshoot why it isn't and correct it.
You should also check the idle control mechanism if there is one on the generator, with it on the generator should start up at regular speed, then slow to idle speed, then rev back up to regular speed when you draw current from the generator. To check it use the DMM to measure the speed at startup ( should be 61.5 Hz), when it idles down (about 37 Hz), when you're drawing power from any other outlet ( pretty close to 60 Hz). If the generator has idled down and you shut off the idle control it should rev back up immediately.
