SOURCE: What type of oil for a Coleman 5000 Generator?

You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: My coleman powermate generator will start but will not generate.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.

SOURCE: I have a Coleman Powermate 5500 Generator. It is

This engine was not built with quiet in mind, it was built to be cheap. upgrading the exhaust is your best bet and likely the cheapest. Talk to a small engine shop about the possibility of using a muffler from an ATV.

Super Trap makes a fantastic muffler, if it will fit your application (most do). A link has been provided at the end. When you are looking at the various options, you will notice that a rating in db units. Reducing noise by 3db is half the original noise level.

if you can, go with the SuperTrapp. If still noisy (probably won't be), then add on the resonator as well. Downside to using aftermarket is that you will have an exhaust stack / system that sticks out the side of the generator. Upside is that you will be able to think quietly about how much the exhaust sticks out.

And no, I don't have any connection with Jack's, they are just the first hit that came up. Now that you know that something is available, you can do more research on it.

Hi! I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 maxa er plus. It wouldn't start so I check out the air filter, it was kind of dirty and I found gas in it. I cleaned my carburetor with carb cleaner even if it was clean...


The engine is pulling secondary air from the torn gasket area by the sound of it. It can't govern itself like that.
That must be fixed before any further tests !

I cant get my coleman powermate 5000 MAXA ER to start. i have changed the oil, refilled the gas, changed the spark plug, and tried using starter fluid. what else can i try?


It's almost certainly gummed up gas in the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner, and some spray instant start. Drain the gas from the tank and put a small amount of 50/50 carb cleaner and gas in the tank. Remove the air cleaner, open the choke, spray a little instant start into the carb and start it. It may fire just a couple of time. Keep the choke on to try to pull a bit of gas through the carb. You may have to do this a few times. Once you can tell some gas is flowing, open the choke slowly to keep it running until you use up the 50/50 mix. Then try a small amount of straight gas in the tank to be sure it works right, before you refill the tank. Make sure you use a stabilizing additive in any gas that you store for more than a month. good luck, Al K

Is there a gas filter on coleman 5000? runs until hot then shuts off


There is somewhat of a filter inside the tank, however your issue could be air lock or faulty oil sensor. Try running the generator with gas cap loose to allow more air into the tank. If cap is fault try to clean cap vent ports with carb cleaner or just replace the cap. If not fuel lock, remove wire from oil sensor and test again.

The gas is leaking from carb but in the motor not out.
You should check and repair the carb flow valve. The floating unit may be full and bent down.

Sounds like you need to clean the carb ports, lines, jets, etc... purchase a carb spray cleaner with a tube to place on the spray head (Berryman's Chemtool B-12 is awesome). Take the carb loose from the generator, and remove the bowl, needle valve and spray carb cleaner thru all the holes, lines in the carb. Reinstall complete with air cleaner and retry... also if the gas is old, drain and replace with new...

Engine dies


Your carburator is gummed up !
Take the float bowl on the bottom of the carb and spray the main fuel jet out with cleaner, do this to the idle needle valve also. If that don't work pull the carb & take apart & soak overnight in parts cleaner & blow out all ports & orfices with compressed air.
Next time you store your generator with gas in it , use a fuel stabilizer !
Good luck !
