Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

1 Answer

Coleman 6200 won't work

Hi bought a coleman 6200 about year ago and just had a power outage. Went to use the generator and it would start just fine but would not put out any power. I would have thought these generators would have lasted longer than that for the money paid for it.
thanks

Hi Judy,
Generators DO last a good long time for the money, but they have to be both used and maintained in order to keep working properly. What has most likely happened is that you didn't use the generator at all for a year, after it sat on your dealers shelf for a few months not being used, and so the tiny bit of magnetism it uses to "kickstart" the process of making electricity has worn down. The good news is that this is easy for a generator shop to repair, no parts involved and the minimum labor that they charge. They need to do something called flashing the field of the generator. What they can't do is get Coleman to pay for it since they aren't around anymore, go ahead try the 800 number (waits patiently).

Be nice to the poor generator techs at the shop.

Starts fine...no juice....sat for 10 years in the box...started using it 3 weeks ago...worked fine until yesterday....starts...runs..no juice...no circuit breakers blown...what's up?


Colemans were known for losing what is known as "residual magnetism", especially when sitting for long periods of time without use. This residual magnetism is necessary for exciting the field to produce electricity. Here is what you can try: Plug a 110v drill into one of the 110 outlets. While the engine/generator is running, with an open hand (not fingers wrapped around it) spin the chuck while holding the drill trigger in the run position. Many times this small amount of current that will be produced by spinning the drill motor will restore the residual magnetism and excite the field. Keep in mind that if this works, the drill motor will begin to spin immediately since it is plugged into the outlet. Hope this helps.

My son purchased this generator about a year and half ago and has used it very little. during a power outage we got it out and used it for a day and the circut board went out. shouldnt it have lasted...


That sux! Thats NOT acceptable in any way... Take it back and demand it gets repaired.. With devices such as this it is not the simple passing of time that ages it, but the actual POWER ON time... & Yes if Overloaded it should simply have "Tripped" a breaker or the like.
