Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 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?
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 -
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: 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///..
