Where is the fuel shut off valve

Powermate generators usually have a shutoff mounted to the bottom of the fuel tank. There is a knob at the bottom of the connector where the hose is attached to the fuel tank. Screwing it in (clockwise) shuts off the fuel.

Coleman generator will only run smooth with the choke half on

Quite often related to restriction in fuel delivery. Start with checking in tank for debris and/or plugged screen to inlet for fuel line. Then check fuel line for kinks, collapsed, debris inside etc. If you have an inline filter, change it. If all's well to carburetor, then perhaps ports may be dirty, clogged. Easiest thing from there would be to add some fuel system/carburetor cleaner, maybe a little more than directions state, and run some of that through, mixed with some fresh,clean gas. Run until tank is 1/2 full or so, then allow to sit a day or 2 if you can. Then run again until tank close to empty, and add more of the mix and run again for a while, letting cleaner work through. You may end up having to have it disassembled and cleaned and repaired properly but, for the time and price of a bottle of cleaner or 2 , it's worth a try.

I cant get my coleman powermate 5000 MAXA ER to start. i have changed the oil, refilled the gas, changed the spark plug, and tried using starter fluid. what else can i try?

It's almost certainly gummed up gas in the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner, and some spray instant start. Drain the gas from the tank and put a small amount of 50/50 carb cleaner and gas in the tank. Remove the air cleaner, open the choke, spray a little instant start into the carb and start it. It may fire just a couple of time. Keep the choke on to try to pull a bit of gas through the carb. You may have to do this a few times. Once you can tell some gas is flowing, open the choke slowly to keep it running until you use up the 50/50 mix. Then try a small amount of straight gas in the tank to be sure it works right, before you refill the tank. Make sure you use a stabilizing additive in any gas that you store for more than a month. good luck, Al K

I need to quiet down my 6250

Not all the noise is from exhaust. The mechanics and the telegraphing of sounds via the feul tank and frame are major noise sources as well.

You MIGHT want to consider building a small enclosure, paying attention to venting and fireproofing..

I have heard of people building an enclosure from concrete blocks for this purpose.

You could try the exhaust by adapting with stainless flex pipe to connect to a standard automobile muffler. I have also seen the exhaust "plumbed" into an underground tank to deaden the sound.

How many gal tank is the Powermate 6250 10 KW

Nearly all of the Powermates have the same 5 gallon fuel tank.
I'm a little confused, the Powermate 6250s are all 5Kw generators with 6250 watt surge ratings. Is yours really a 10Kw or did I misunderstand which generator you have?
