I have a problem with the carburator at my coleman powermate pro gen 5000, where i buy this carburator on line. thanks


To find the correct part on line, first determine the engine model number and code stamped or labeled on the engine fan cover. For example will be Briggs, or Honda etc. Once you determine the Engine brand and model number, you can go to a web address like Jacks small engine, or even ebay or a replacement part or carb kit. May be easier to take the engine information to a mower repair shop in your area for a replacement. The engine on your generator is similar to one used on lawn equipment. Good luck

I'VE got a coleman powermate 5500, i've got no output from the plugs. i've tried the circuit breakers. is there a fuse somewhere?


There is no fuse. Most common problems are loose connector from panel to gen set, worn brushes, faulty rectifier board or needs to be spiked (more serious reasons but lets not go there). Brushes and panel easy to check, remove cover to gen. and look at brushes for good contact to com. rings. Remove rectifier board from mount and look at capacitor for leaks or swelling. Replace as needed. Parts are available at jackssmallengine. com There are many ways to spike gen. as seen when you google the subject, however I just use a one amp 12v battery charger (or any small dc power supply 1/2 amp to 1 amp) and very quickly/split second contact brush connector while engine is running. Mind polarity, you must know which brush is positive. Usually on coleman the brush closest to bearing is positive. Spiking works immediately, if no joy, more serious problems exist. Dont worry, you cant break anything doing this, remember it is already broken. Post again if you have other question. Good luck

Coleman power mate not running when placed on run dies out...but runs on choke.


RECOMENDATION:
-Remove soak and clean high-speed jet in Carburetor and clean float valve in Carburetor.

-Do not use fuel with ethanol.

-Use a fuel inhibitor with your fuel. this will keep the fuel from braking down.

-When your done running the Gen-Set for the season fill tank and treat it with a fuel stabiliser and turn off fuel valve and let the gen set run out of fuel. This will ensure that fuel is not going to evaporate in the carburetor.

Hope this tip helps.

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!


Excite the genset.

with the gen engine running,
1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
(make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
2) hold the trigger in the run position
3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
*** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.

Valve spring broke


Not sure but I think someone told me it is a knock off of the Honda? If so maybe try comparing? Ck size, Spring tension & etc?
I know not much help but that's where I'd start. Been told by a local small eng shop there aren't internal parts available for the Sumec engines.

powermate went out of business , but here is a website http://www.powermate.com/contact.php
you can probably get a off/ on switch at your local small engine repair shop. it probably can be any switch for a gen.
