Check the oil level, these generators have an oil monitoring system that prevents the engine running if the oil isn't all the way up to the bottom of the threads in the oil fill hole.

Generator has been running steady for 2 weeks. It will not start now. It has spark, gas is good, oil is good. It is a 5000 coleman powermate electric generator. Did it die due to a 2 week running? It...


if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
if it wont turn over then it could be siezed or dropped a valve.

How to flash or remagnitize Coleman Powermate 6875 or Husky 40500


Field Flashing of Portable Generators This tip comes from the Briggs & Stratton Customer Education Department. As an alternative to flashing a rotor winding with a battery applied to the brushes, an electric drill may be used. Follow these steps to flash the generator:
  • Plug the electric drill into the generator receptacle. (Cordless drills do not work)
  • If the drill is reversible, move the direction switch to the forward position.
  • Start the generator
  • While depressing the trigger on the drill, spin the drill chuck in reverse direction. This will excite the field and the generator will now produce electricity. If spinning the chuck one direction does not work, try spinning the chuck in the other direction as you may have the reverse switch positioned backwards.
Use caution not to get your hand or other materials caught in the chuck. As soon as the field is excited, the generator will produce power and the drill will turn on.
The reason this works is because the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backwards. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor windings, which is fed back through the trigger, cord and into the generators receptacle. From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field, which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor winding the rotor has been flashed.
If flashing the field does not make the generator work, you may have additional problems, besides a lack of magnetism in the rotor. Further testing will be needed. Hopefully, this will give a simple way to field flash your generator if needed - Bruce Perrault

A coleman generator 6875 won't start please give


Dump ALL old fuel out of tank, you might have got a clog in the fuel line, carburator, fuel valve. Remove carb bottom Sediment bowl then spray Carb cleaner thru the gas inlet AT the carb 3-4 secs CAUTION: KEEP YOUR HEAD BACK.. that cleaner hurts if you get it in your eyes... and NEVER SPRAY A HOT ENGINE (np with yours tho no start) Refill tank with NEW fuel (or strained at least if emergency remote repair) Place a suitable catch container over gas inlet line to carb (at carb) open fuel valve chk for fuel FLOWING (no dripping) into container. replace fuel line to carb start as normal
if not firing still chk that spark plug, might need cleaning now that rest is ok.

I have a coleman powermate 6875 engine runs fine and it all works till it gets hot then the engine still runs but not charging.


The unit should have a pop out fuse or set of fuses.
If you are drawing too much currant from the unit, it will shut down. If you plug in a simple 100Watt light and test the unit and see if it stops generating currant.
Max is only 5500.
You may also have shutoff thermo sensiors, if the caseing of the generator runs too hot or low on oil, it will shut unit down.

Keep in mind, if you have a shut off valve, turn the shut off valve, closing the fuel supply while running.
This will remove all gas from the bowl and not spoil after setting for long periods of time.
Same with oil, it will do damage to the engine if it just sets for long periods.

Hi

First you need to change the plug with a new one with the same heat range(too long time).Priming the engine few times(put some gas in the cilinder through the plug hole)and start the engine until it runs constantly.

Coleman 6875, Does it have an auto idle???


Hi,
If you've got an auto idle function you'll also have a switch somewhere to shut it off, so look for that first.
Engine surging is almost always a problem somewhere in either the air cleaner or the carb. Check the air cleaner, if it's not dirty take the bowl off the carb and look for dirt in the bottom.

Regards,
Carl
