Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
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.
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.
