Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

1 Answer

Generator only runs in choke position

I have Coleman-Powermate 6250 watt generator that I have had for 3 years and have not used only to let it run every 3 months or so. When I start it by choking then move the switch to run in shuts down, but will continue to run in the choke position. Could it be the gas or some other problem? I only use it during hurricane season, so it has only run for an hour or so. Thanks in advance

how old was the fuel in the tank and carb bowl? This could have built up varnish and make the float heavier
Another issue that my customers bring in are 4 stroke generators that have 2 stroke fuel put in tank.

I have a coleman powermate premium plus 6250 generator,put in new plug ,new filter ,changed oil,cleaned the carb,put in new gas. runs ok at half choke but when go full choke it starts backfiring and runs...


if you are running the engine at full CHOKE, then it is flooding the engine, but if you meant off full choke, then the carb is still stopped up. Try soaking in carb cleaner overnight after removing jet & all rubber goods. HOPE THIS HELPS.

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?

I have a 3 year old Coleman Powermate 6250


Try this! To excite it. Shut off the generator! Unplug everything,Then use the 12 volt battery to excite it per manual. Make sure the engine is NOT running and the breaker switch is in the on position. Now with the battery 12V removed restart the generator! This should fix it if the problem is that it lost its magnetism.
