Question about Coleman Powermate 1,850 W Portable Generator Pm0401853

Open Question

Why wouldn't a a Coleman Powermate PM0401853, 1500 watt generator start?

Will not start. Pull is very easy - same when in choke or run position, and gas leaks from the carb-to-filter plate gasket.

SOURCE: I bought a used coleman powermate 5000 generator,

What brand of engine & horsepower is it?Also about how long was it stored or last time it was run? The reason I ask is if it was stored with gas in it & a fuel stabilizer wasn't added to it,your primary jet is plugged in the carburetor(reason it will only run while choked).

Hello Pete,

Is fuel actually leaking from the bottom of the bowl, or is leaking out the air filter and running down to the bowl?

If the former, then your bowl bolt's gasket has likely deteriorated. This would allow fuel to run down the bolt itself. Note that some carburetors will have a fuel shutoff solenoid (to the engine, not to the carburetor) that holds the bowl on, rather than a bolt. There will still be a gasket though. Turn fuel off before trying to service.

If fuel is running out from inside the carburetor (through air cleaner, etc), then you have a float / needle that is stuck. This is quite common after a small engine has been in storage and fuel was left in the carburetor. The residue causes the float to stick to the bottom. Turn the fuel off, undo the bolt that holds the bowl on, and carefully remove the carburetor bowl. Use a can of carburetor and choke cleaner to spray out the "gunk" in the bowl, spray off the float, and then reassemble. If it still leaks, then your needle seat will need to be replaced as well.

My Coleman 3750 generator normally starts on the 1 st or 2 nd pull. It will not keep running unless continue tom choke it?????


You have a lean fuel condition. Your carb is slightly clogged. By choking the unit you are manually changing the air/fuel ratio to richen up the mix. Your carb needs to be removed and cleaned. Hope this info helped.

Coleman Generator starting problems


If you started it for just a minute, it never got warmed up and MAYBE the spark plug fouled. Check it first.

Sometimes one forgets where to set the choke for starting. And if engine is already warm from a short run they can be hard to start if too much choke is used and it floods... Again, when you check the plug, if it is wet this MAY be the problem.

To check fuel getting to the engine I have used an UNLIT propane torch into the carb to give an engine a mixture that it can run on without flooding. You usually have to remove the air cleaner to do this. That is a trick I have used for "cranky" engines.

Since you stired up the gas, the fuel filter may have got plugged.

Coleman 6250 generator runs rough


Fresh fuel? Does carburetor have adjustable jets? Turn the high speed jet (at bottom of float bowl) about 1/4 to1/2 CCW (looking at bottom of bowl). If no improvement, carburetor should be torn apart and cleaned. This also applies if there are no adjustable jets. Is there a fuel filter anywhere?
