Yes, there must be a protection device on the unit somewhere. It should be indicated in the owners manual. It may be on the box the outlets are in, or built into the cover of the generation unit.

Powermate 5000 generator motor working .no elektricity

If the genset is working but there is no output then it is possible that the circuit breaker has TRIPPED due to short in the line. So remove the load to the genset and power the engine . Now switch on the mains switch and see if there is output. It there is no output then it is possible that there are problems in the ALTERNATOR. You will need to check if there is safety cut off/fuse that has failed or there is problems in the wiring.

No AC out put

After working on several of this style coleman generator,i have found that the lead wires in the windings that are soldered to where your brushes would contact tend to break.I don't know if it's a poor design or just a fluke,i would check to see if your getting continuity on the rotor and go from there.They seem to either "burn off" or just break.

Motor runs but doesn't deliver electricity

Make sure that the alternator is being turned by the engine--sometimes the mechanical coupling fails. Check for a tripped breaker/blown fuse. Beyond checking for bad brushes (if used), you will need a wiring diagram and an AC/DC voltmeter/ohmmeter to chase out any troubles in the alternator. Be aware of voltages up to 230 volts can be found inside even if there is no output.

No output

you need to replace your breaker frist. than check your rotor ohm and than your stator for shorts. you may want to check the cover were the bearing is there is a metal ring that may have came out and hits your brush cover. look for black burnt marks

No electric power generated from my Coleman Powermate Maxa 5000W.

the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on
