Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Last week I had to run my 6250 coleman generator outside at about -35 C. In about an hour it started to blow oil from the generator end it appeared. Ia there a solution short of having to enclose and heat the area?
I don't believe you have a problem with running your unit out in cold weather, it just does't make any since. There have to be a problem with the engine. If your unit is new or has been used very little, it is not broke in and has a to much blow-by. If this is the case you will find oil in your air clean and/or muffler. To fix it problem you need to change your oil and replace it with a organic oil which means not synthetic. Run your unit under 1/4 load for 15 minutes in your case about 15 amp at 120vac. This step it up to 30 amps at 120vac of 15 minutes then 45 amps for 15 min. Then about 60 amps for a good hour. After that step the unit back down to 45,30,and 15amps to allow the engine to cool-down properly. If you load your unit with 240vac instead of 120vac just divide the amps by two giving you 7.5, 15, 22.5, and 30amps. This should break your engine in. If you are still leaking/pushing out oil you more than likely have a bad seal, gasket, or something broken in you engine internally.
