With the brush wires disconnected you should read about 20 ohms from one slip ring to the other. With the plug pulled out you should see less than 1 ohm from one of the yellow wires to the other. Each power winding (a white and black wire) should read less than an ohm and not be connected at all to the other winding.

Carl

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

No AC out put


After working on several of this style coleman generator,i have found that the lead wires in the windings that are soldered to where your brushes would contact tend to break.I don't know if it's a poor design or just a fluke,i would check to see if your getting continuity on the rotor and go from there.They seem to either "burn off" or just break.

Coleman Generator not Making Power


actually, it sounds like the diodes are blown. Check our diodes.

As for checking stator, find the two wires, typically labeled L1 and L2 that are going to it. Measure with a multimeter. If there is no visual signs of damage, continuity can indicate a good stator. You should not have continuity between either wire and the stator frame.

The same goes for the rotor as well. The resistance measurements will not be the same for each one though.

Unfortunately, Powermate is out of business, and service information is scarce.

Coleman 5000 generater-no AC output


Try replacing the capacitor. You can buy it from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. When you pull off the power end of the generator look at the diodes also. If they look toasted replace them as well

Motor runs but have no power coming out of outlets of mygenerator


1 - Check the circuit breakers on the front of the panel where the outlets are located.
2 - Make sure the black molex plug on the back of the panel where the outlets are located is plugged in securely.
3 - Carefully take the plastic endbell off the generator ( you'll need a 7/16 inch wrench and socket) and look for broken or missing brushes, broken wires, etc.
4 - If you're not up for #3 take it to a good repair shop. :-)
