SOURCE: coleman powermate 6250 mod# PM0525303

I had the same problem on my Powermate 525500 (5500 watt) and finally manage to get in contact w/Powermate (PRAMAC) tech support. He told me that if the gen is setup for a while, the exciter loses it's magnatism. To reenergize ( jumpstart) as he called it, follow the prcedure below. Probably not for amatures.
1. start up the generator.
2. Pull off the brush cover on the end of the gen.
3. Get a 6-12 volt battery and setup w/color coated cables.
4. place the negative lead on the left side brush terminal and tap the right side brush terminal w/ the positive lead.
5. Wala....you sould have power.

One would think that this important info would be on the manual or a blog somewhere.

Good luck and have a wonderful day.

SOURCE: Engine works but no power is produced

I have a COLEMAN 6250 Watt Powermate too, and it stopped producing 3 hrs into our blackout. I unbolted the four 7/16" bolts holding the end bell assembly, and looked at the circuit board (bridge rectifier assembly) and saw that 4 of the diodes had melted free from the circuit board. This is a $30 replacement part, and seems to be a common problem with these units. http://www.jackssmallengines.com/coleman_control_board.cfm
Other common and cheap to fix problems may be the brushes are worn out. Unscrew the phillips screws under the plastic tab on the end bell of the generator, and pull out the metallic rectangular posts attached to the copper wires. If they are shorter than 1/4", broken, or uneven, they may need to be replaced. They are about $3 each.
I probably drew too much power from 1 outlet on the generator, and it caused the board to fail instead of tripping the circuit breaker. (BTW, the repair shop told me it would cost $550 to replace the entire rotor/stator circuit board assembly. I have a strong feeling they didn't even look at any of the above parts, because they didn't have a clue as to what they were doing!)

I liken this to taking your car in because it won't start, and the mechanic saying you need a new engine!

Good luck!

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!

Excite the genset.

with the gen engine running,
1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
(make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
2) hold the trigger in the run position
3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
*** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.

I have a coleman furnace model 4066A656


Make sure your air filter is clean. Is the thermostat satisfied? or is the room temp. still below the thermostat setting? When ever you have to turn the power off and then back on to a furnace that usually indicates that the furnaces ignition control locked out. The first thing that I would try is cleaning the flame rod.

Furnace kicks on then shuts off


Coleman furnaces us a temperature delay with a temperature on around 130F to 150F and off around 110F.

If the inrush of cold air cools the delay below the off temperature the fan will go off until the heater heats it up to the on temperature.

Coleman furnace -- fan runs, ingniter won't light,


Hi,
The chances are that the furnace was running when the power went out. This will cause the high limit switch to cutout and needs to be manually reset.
You will find that switch in the blower compartment near the blower. Usually somewher near the highest point of the cabinet.
Push the little red button firmly till it clicks.
When the power goes out while the furnace is running the heat builds up because the blower shuts down immediately and causes this limit switch to cut out.
If you have a electric tester you can also follow the low voltage circuit till you find the open switch. Ther is usually a wiring schematic on the door cover of most furnaces.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Draft fan keeps on running after furnace shuts


That sounds pretty normal for most furnace/heater products. They run the heating element with fan for a cycle then after the heater reaches temperature it will shut off and the fan will continue to run to cool the element and to circulate the heat that it produced. If you want the manual for this product it looks like you can get it here: http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/ex/product/headline/m/Coleman%2BEvcon/d/furnace/p/DGATO75BDC

Furnace not cycling properly.


you might want to check the filter, if the filter is restricting the airflow the furnace will over heat and it will shut down. if you turn it off and on it will reset it and it will try again. Pull the filter out half way and try that, if it runs fine then clean the filter or get a less restrictive one.

Furnace blower not working how it should


first off buy yourself a honeywell stat, in my personal opinion lux stats are garbage, I have run into so many that are bad stats !!! but as far as your fan not shuting down, sounds to me like your fan center on your circuit board is bad and will not shut down the fan when needed, you will have to replace the circuit board, as the fan center is a part of the whole of the circuit board, hope that helps

Coleman mobile home furnace...Model number DGAA077BDTB...The furnace about a month ago started going out ( flash code- Combustion Air switch stuck closed)We replaced the thermostat on the wall and it...


I had the same errror code on my coleman furnace (3 flashes combustion air switch failed to close) but at first didnt realize there was even a light that gave codes..Anyways long story short, after searching many forums one guy mentioned about the furnace giving a false reading and talked about improper air flow ( coming in and going out) which isnt triggering the switch correctly. After thinking about it and after getting the furnace to run correctly every time I took the door off to tap on the switch (and other spots not knowing what the problem was yet) I always put the door right back on then the furnace would do the same thing (stop running). so I pulled the door off again got the furnace to work properly and left the door off and tested it. It ran great, it started and stopped like normal for a hour and realized I might not be getting proper air flow. Then I remembered I asked my roommate to change my filters for me while I was gone (which he did) and looked at them while I still had the door off and realized the filters were in backwards! which resticted the air flow so much the switch wouldnt operate fully. so check your air filters, something so stupid almost cost me a house visit by the furnace guy....this may not be everyones problem but maybe I will help someone save a house visit....I still cant believe that was my problem and the furnace is still running great.
