Question about Coleman Powermate Subaru 5000W Portable Generator

1 Answer

Won't start got a Coleman Powermate Subary 5000W Generator in March. Ran it twice and put it away. It's December. The snow is here. Oil level is good. Gas is good. everything looks brand new. Choke is in position. Gas switch is on. On/Off red switch is on. The thing won't start, no matter how hard I pull the cord. Any ideas?

    Thank you for your suggestion. I wouldn't know where to even start looking for the "low oil switch", let alone bypass it. Turns out my neighbor came over and asked if I had primed the engine. We couldn't find a primer either, so he removed the spark plug and put a little gas in the compartment. He put the spark plug back in, we reset the whole thing and it started. He said that, after having been stored for such a long time, it was "too dry". Thanks again for taking the time to read my question and respond to it. Happy Holidays.

Its a 2 or 4 cycle


Powermate 5000w is four cycle. Look for oil fill plug on the engine and make sure that oil level is correct. Two cycle engines do not have crankcase with oil (as oil is mixed with fuel).
