Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Probably not the governor, most likely it is in the carburetor. The main or the high speed jet circuit is likely obstructed.

Hi. I'm trying to help my Dad locate the replacement carburetor for his Coleman PowerMate Model PM0524000, SERIAL# 78661904. Can you help me?


Best way to find a carb is to start with the actual engine model number and type. It should be stamped on engine fan cover. With engine model information, contact local parts dealer for your brand of engine (not Coleman/Powermate, but Briggs, Kohler, Honda, etc.) There are many options for locating parts, including ebay once you have identified brand type model. Good luck

I have a coleman 6250 generator, only runs when i spray fuel into the carb, it about a year old. With a B&S engine


Old gas has probably gummed up the works. You have to store these with an empty tank to avoid this in the future. Using a fuel stabilizer helps too. To fix it, remove all of the old gas. Make sure the fuel cutoff valve is open (it only turns 1/4 turn). If it has a fuel filter replace it. Put in just a little fresh gas in the tank with a bit of carb cleaner. If it still won't run, remove the carburetor bowl and you will see a donut shaped float that operates a valve. Using carb cleaner, clean that valve, and clean the needle valve in the middle of the bowl. Good luck.

Check the oil level. The protection on low oil level may have stopped it.

Coleman Powermate 1000 Starts fine then revs up and dies


Hi, I just pulled out my Coleman Generator (1000) and it actually started then died. Has been sitting for about 10 months. I ran it out of fuel before putting away. Anyways, it starts for a minute than dies. If I press fuel primer it keeps running but than it dies. So, I took the cover off, the one towards exhaust side and was able to see carburetor. There are two screws with springs on them. I guess these screws control fuel and air for carburetor(you can clearly see they are on carb). As stated above there are not many adjustments. There is no choke for the model I have; just an on and off switch and fuel prime button. The instructions say fuel it up (with the right oil/petrol mix of coarse), switch it to "on", prime it, pull starter cord and then that's it......"not happening". Okay, so I took my little flat head screwdriver and backed out each screw while counting how many times I turned, until I was able to remove completely(PLEASE remove one at a time and take note which one went where AND how many times you backed out). Take a can of carb cleaner with the straw and shoot through the holes where the screws came out of. I shot carb cleaner a couple pumps in each hole. Examine each of screws removed as these have pointed ends(replace if damaged). Put screws back; again make sure you count how many turns. This worked for me. Idles perfect. Thanks!

Coleman Powermate 6250 generator - shut off generator at 11pm after v4 hours normal use. At 5am, wouldn't start, pull rope wouldn't move to start. A few hours later while draining oil found mostly gas...


the usual reason is a stuck float in your carburator , can be caused by dirt/rust etc , remove carb bowl and clean , there is also a very small needle valve which is attached to this float ( metering needle ) these can leak.
if all else fails always turn off the fuel supply to the generator whilst not in use

When i take off the bowl on the carb with the gas line turned on should gas flow from the carb? or not


YES, UNLESS THE NEEDLE VALVE IS STUCK IN THE SEAT. MOVE OR LIFT THE FLOAT A COUPLE OF TIMES, FUEL SHOULD FLOW ANYTIME THE FLOAT IS DOWN, AS IT LIFTS FUEL SHOULD STOP.
