    I had the same trouble but cleaning the carb didn't fix it. I took the float out and shook it. Something was inside so i replaced it. Problem solved.

Hi! I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 maxa er plus. It wouldn't start so I check out the air filter, it was kind of dirty and I found gas in it. I cleaned my carburetor with carb cleaner even if it was clean...


The engine is pulling secondary air from the torn gasket area by the sound of it. It can't govern itself like that.
That must be fixed before any further tests !

Serges up and down and stalls after a fes coleman maxa 5000 er plus


Hi mxdidit,

Surging is generally caused by carburetor problems. Squirt some carb cleaner in it and see if that helps it at all. If that helps but does not do a lot, then the carb probably needs to be rebuilt. The carb could also just need some adjusting. Check for fuel leaks around the carb and also be sure the air filter is clean.
Good luck.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Parts lists for Coleman generators are here: http://www.jackssmallengines.com/coleman_parts_lookup.cfm

More detailed information about the engine can be found by using the engine model number. Look around the fan shroud or engine block. Coleman used different engnes, however your gen may have incorporated a Tecumseh 10 hp engine. Good luck

It is not a problem like to know if i can use my coleman 5000 maxa er plus 10 hp. With A welder with out damage it. Tanks


Yes, you can use a welder with it. Pay attention to the ratings of the welder, don't exceed running watts of the generator. It would also be a good idea to try and use a welder that is less than the running watts rating of the generator. Then you would have some extra capacity to deal with fuel quality, maintenance history, momentary undervoltage, altitude, etc.

Coleman 5000 watt generator Tecumseh 10 hp engine. Surging r.p.m. Carburetor has been gone through 2 times, and still not correct. Any information will help!!!


it's running lean.....try resetting the choke partially when it begins to surge.....not completely closed, but enough to richen the fuel mixture (that's all a choke does btw..)
if that helps or clears the problem, your carb is outta whack.....cheaper to buy a new carb than keep taking back into the shop.

Coleman Powermate 3000 surging


Check your air filter to make sure it is clean, especially if the gen. has been run in dirty, dusty conditions. Make sure the gas tank vent is not clogged.

Also, pour some combustion cleaner into the carb. through the air intake to clean the carb. It sounds like it is starving for gas.

Hope this helps.
