SOURCE: powermate pm0545212.02 wont generate

The exciter coil can be checked with an ohm meter. It will read fairly low ohms (probably under 100). There are diodes also. You can check them with an ohm meter too. They should read in one direction only. The red lead on the meter is + and that will conduct through the diode when your on the anode. When you reverse the leads of the meter, it should read infinite or OL.

SOURCE: My coleman powermate generator will start but will not generate.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.

You will need to check the resisitance of the stator and rotor windings, and also each rotor/ring to ground (IE rotor shaft) All tests to ground should be 0 M ohms, stators vary but typically around 1ohm or so, and rotors approx 20-30ohms

Stator got hot on my generator


Stators can get hot, but not too hot? how much are you talking. This is indicative of a short in the output wires, and / or overloading with inductive loads. Compressors, motors, fans etc

How to test stator


You will need a very high quality ohm meter that can account for test lead resisitance. Stator wire leads are ohmed right off the stator and their value is generally low 0.8 or less ohms (each generator model and windings is different) and needs comparing with a specific model factory service manual. Temperatore also affects this reading. Often best left to a pro with a low impedendance meter or a device called a wheatstone bridge, as the resistance is often too low to see on a conventional meter

What is the stator


The stator is the outside part of the generator with the windings. The rotor is the part that turns inside the stator.

Make sure it is not the brush set.
There must be continuity from one slip ring to another.
If not, but rotor doesn't look burnt - check points where rotor wire is soldered to slip rings, or clear contact point on each side of wire and check continuity there, past slip rings and brushes. Big chance that wire came loose from slip ring.
Had such problem on my Champiion 3500
evern if burnt - rotor is easy to rewind at home, unlike stator.

Unless your model is Inverter type - there is AVR module.
But, unless your rotor has continuity - don't bother going further.

Coleman Generator not Making Power


actually, it sounds like the diodes are blown. Check our diodes.

As for checking stator, find the two wires, typically labeled L1 and L2 that are going to it. Measure with a multimeter. If there is no visual signs of damage, continuity can indicate a good stator. You should not have continuity between either wire and the stator frame.

The same goes for the rotor as well. The resistance measurements will not be the same for each one though.

Unfortunately, Powermate is out of business, and service information is scarce.
