Sometimes the generator loses the magnetic field that allows it to produce power. Do a Google search on "flashing a generator field". There are many ways to do it, but I would recommend doing some reading before trying it. Your "dead" generator could produce hazardous voltage once it comes back to life.

Also, before trying any of this, make sure the circuit breakers on the generator (if equipped) are not tripped.

Good luck and be careful!

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator it get gas and spark and oil is fine but wont start


Lets see, Do you have any ether or old school lighter fluid? If you use ether spray a little into the air intake just before you pull the cord for a start, if it starts you have a carb problem. Same for the lighter fluid, remove the spark plug and squirt a small amount down in the cylinder, again if it starts you have a carb, probelm. Take the carb. off the engine take note of the rods and springs, take a picture get it in good focus so you can put it back together. Take the fuel bowl off the bottom of the carb and clean the jets and all see if that will help.

My Coleman Powermate Pulse 1750 generator shuts down


Your generator should run a power tool rated at 10 amps. The 15 amps you mentioned for the PM1750 is for the DC rating. The AC rating is 11.6 amps.

Coleman Powermate 8750 will not generate electricity.


I had a similar situation with a friends generator. After sitting around unused for a few years it would not generate because the residual magnitism was weak. I plugged a light into it and by using the throttle arm I breifly ran up the RPM and the light came on. DO NOT MAINTAIN THE HIGH RPM FOR MORE THAN A FEW SECONDS.

Oil leaking from generator


Whose engine do you have? Briggs and Honda have websites where you can down load their manuals and replace the rear seal.
