The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.

My honda 2000 whisperer generator runs then shuts off after about 3 minutes. What could possibly be wrong?


Always use ONLY fresh fuel... (page 32 of owners manual) it is very easy to forget about because HONDA is such an awesome machine... but EVEN MORE LIKELY...

HONDA has a very sensitive self protection device

Your oil pressure cut off switch could be responding to the WRONG OIL...
DIRTY OIL...
LOW OIL or WORSE... OVERFILLED Oil.

Check it out in your owners manual. ((below) http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31Z07610.pdf

I am looking for an owners manual for a Coleman Powermate generator model PMO645250


Powermate doesn't have an owners manual listed for the PM0645250 on their website.

Since wintertime is a good candidate for power failures I would recommend using a good synthetic 5w-30 oil as it is a good year around oil. This would make starting much easier during the cold weather

I changed the oil four times and its still milky


If your oil is milky you are getting moisture in the crankcase. Does this unit set outside? make sure your crankcase vent is clear.

Lost the owners manual and need to know what type of oil it takes.


any good 30 weight will do fine. If yuo run it a great deal like I do mine I put a little STP type of lube in with the oil to help it out there. Also change the oil about every 50 hours so you dont get oil break down

Best of luck

11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire


If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.
