Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

Open Question

I have a Coleman Pro Gen 5000 Generator purchased new in 1999. I have not run the generator until today, 10/28/2012. I put oil and gas in the unit, started it and ran it for about 10 minutes. It ran very well. When I shut it off, I noticed gas running from the bottom of the carb. The gas appeared to be filling the carb at the top and running down. I shut off the gas at the cutoff valve, and then opened it again. It began to run out again so I shut it off again.

If the oil is dirty, it will not pump properly. I recently had this problem, once I changed the oil it was good to go.

SOURCE: What type of oil for a Coleman 5000 Generator?

You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: generator hard to start and backfiring

Sound like you've done things in the correct order, tecumseh's are notorious for carb problems if you let as sit in them. Backfiring is timing related (flywheel key) or valve problems. I would take a closer look at the exhaust valve I don't believe it is closing all the way.

SOURCE: Generator with Briggs & Stratton,no gas is getting in carburetor

The needle valve may be stuck which would not let gas into the carb. I don;t think rebuild kits are too expensive. Pull the carb and take it to a lawnmower repair shop and they should have the parts. Before that though pull the bowl and make sure it has gas in it. If no then remove the fuel line and make sure gas flows from it. If no then could be the fuel shutoff valve is not operating properly or junk in the gas tank is obstructing the line.

My generator will start but is not getting enough power to turn on appliances in the house what could be the problem? Its a coleman pro gen 5000 with a 5 gallon gas tank.


Just what kind of appliances are you trying to run with that little generator?

Check the wattage each appliance is rated for, check how many other things you might be powering, add it all up and that is what you will have to power it with, plus a few thousand watts for a cushion. Most likely you have exceeded the output of your generator. Turn off everything and then see what it can power simultaneously.

Is there a gas filter on coleman 5000? runs until hot then shuts off


There is somewhat of a filter inside the tank, however your issue could be air lock or faulty oil sensor. Try running the generator with gas cap loose to allow more air into the tank. If cap is fault try to clean cap vent ports with carb cleaner or just replace the cap. If not fuel lock, remove wire from oil sensor and test again.

New gen no power out!


I had a very similar problem with my Powermate generator. The repair was fairly simple. I purchased a new capacitor from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. The part was less than $10.00 plus shipping. I just put the part number in from the owner's manual. to replace the part you remove the power end of the generator (four long bolts 7/16), Unplug the wiring harness and then remove the three screws which hold the clear plastic shield in place. All you have to do is pull the wires off of the blue capacitor and put the new one in. When you pull the end off you should also look at the diods to see if they look burned. If they do you can get these from Jack's as well. I hope this fixes your problem

Good luck!!
