Power mate Powerbase 5000W generator

This gernerator has a pull cord. I am not strong enough to start this engine so I would like to install an electric start. Is this possible? I am not sure if it has a subaru engine or a briggs & straton. engine. Where would I purchase parts and approx. how much would it cost for parts?

Thanks

Barb

SOURCE: No electric power generated from my Coleman Powermate Maxa 5000W.

the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on

I recommend that you purchase your air filter at -
tewarehouse.com
They offer the lowest prices that I have seen and it is good quality.

SOURCE: 5000w gen. no powe out put

when engine runs but no power is produced ...there are three things you need to check:
1- brushes may be shattered.(open the generating unit cover(from the stator and rotor side) and you'll find it..if it is shattered..then replace it.
2- breaker...to test this disfunction...connect the two wires(the one going to it and the one coming out of it) together and try again...if it generated power..then the breaker is out of order...either replace it...or keep it connected directly (DON'T leave any naked wires)
3- AVR open the generatng unit cove again.you'll find the AVR (screwed to the rotor holder) here is a picture of an AVR:93c8b52.jpg if it is burnt out...replace it..
IF you tried the 3 things i wrote and none of them worked, then you have a problem with the stator or the rotor...but that is very rare to happen...it's probably one of the three///..

Starter rope is locked. Cannot turn by pulling cord


Hi Bob:
Sounds like the engine is seized.
Try removing enough bits so you can access the flywheel and see if you can turn it. Make sure ignition is OFF.
If the flywheel does not turn it will be time for a learning experience, a trip to the maintenance shop, or a replacement.

choke it and pull the cord, if it has set for a long time, you may need to pull the spark plug and put a drop or 2 of gas in the cyilinder, reinstall the plug andwire and it should start.

Gernerator wasn't used over a year, tried to start and can not pull cord. Checked the oil and there is gas in it?


The rings are stuck to the cylinder wall. Remove spark plug and spray some pb blaster in the hole.
3 or 4 seconds worth. Let sit a day then try. If no go repete. You can pry on the flywheel if yiu know where not to. Take your time Rushing it may brake the rings.

I have to leave a comment for cfa6094. Your pretty good at flexing your cyber muscles. I am a service tech in the repair field and deal with people like you all the time. If you are the owner of the equipment you should properly maintain your equipment. Sounds like you are not very organized. Sound more like crises management to me. Is mrfixit the only person you asked about this problem? One more thing, sound like you are a bit of a procrastinator to me. LOOK AT ME NO SPELL CHECK!
