Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
COLEMAN POWERMATE 6560 ENG #1025195, S/N F05, WITH A SUBARU ENGINE...CRANK THE MOTOR AND IT GOES FULL SPEED RIGHT AWAY, JUST STARTED IT 2 DAYS.. HAD IT RUNNING, ALL OF SUDDEN, ENGINE WENT WIDE OPEN, LINKAGE NOT BROKEN & RETURN SPRINGS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION. HAD GENERATOR CHECKED & HE THOUGHT IT WAS IN THE GOVERNOR, MAYBE NOT LETTING THE WEIGHTS OPEN,, CAN NOT FIND A SERVICE CENTER IN THE AREA OF OF PORT ARTHUR, & BEAUMONT, TEXAS... THANKS
This is almost surely a problem with the governor, check it like this.
Have someone with a finger on the kill switch.
Watch the governor arm while starting the engine, if it does not move almost immediately after starting the engine it is broken.
This is not a simple repair as it involves taking the crankcase apart, you'll have to contact robin/subaru to get a parts list in order to get the right governor spool and weights.
For an experienced technician this is about a 2 hour repair task.
Hope this helped,
