Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

1 Answer

No power I have a coleman 5000 powermate I had the generator running christmas lights on a float a couple of years ago and it just stopped charging. It sat outside for a couple of years and I have taken it apart somewhat and cleaned everything up. It runs fine, but still no charge. I did pull the genset side apart and clened up the metal surfaces. I aso visually checked the windings, capacitor and such. I also cleaned any connections. What would have caused it to quit charging so suddenly and how do I check the components. Theo

Since this generator quit working suddenly it's likley that something is wrong with the field circuit inside. The metal surfaces you cleaned off sound like the slip rings of the rotor, there should have been 2 graphite square rods mounted on the plastic bit you took off that ride on these slip rings, they could be worn down or broken.
You'll need a good DMM to measure the resistance between the 2 slip rings (should be about 15 ohms), also measure each of the stator coils (black and white wires in the molex plug) look for an open.
Because the generator has been sitting for a couple of years it probably also hsa lost its residual magnetism, you'll need to flash the field to get it working again once all the parts are confirmed to be OK.

Will a blown head gasket on my Coleman power ate 5000 era stop it from running?


It may run in this condition for a bit, but it will eventually stop running and be in need of serious repairs. I would find a shop to replace the head gasket or a manual and gasket and fix it before running it again.

I have a coleman powermate 5000 genertor w/a subaru engine.


Try removing the float bowl from the carbuerator and empty it out. Also check the float valve to see if there is debris under it. Thi problem is definitely fuel.

I have a coleman 5000 that runs fine but it stops producing power after it runs for a couple of minutes.


Same answer as the last time you asked, likely a flying open. If the rotor test proves that your rotor isn't opening up, test the capacitor on brushless models or the voltage regulator board on brush generators.

Oil for Coleman Powermate 5000 PM0545305.03


Yes, SAE5W30 is just the right oil for this machine,it will take about a quart to fill it up to the bottom of the threads in the oil fill hole.
The engine of this generator is essentially just like a lawn mower with a fixed throttle setting. You should expect all of the same issues as any small engine that's been sitting for a while. Check the fuel tank for water/debris, check the carb for fouling, check the spark plug, etc.

If the generator has been sitting for 3+ years without running you may need to flash it to get any voltage out of it. If you get the engine running and it won't make any electricity ask me directly and I'll talk you thru the procedure.

I looked on www.powermate.com for an owners manual but they only seem to have the parts list, rats.

Regards,
Carl
