Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
Coleman generator 5000 er motor surges but its because load arm keeps ackuating back and forward
Replace the pink plastic jet and two O-rings (center of carb) and clean out the shaft they are in with Q-tip and solvent, blow out with compressed air prior to assembly, make sure a old O-ring is not down in the hole as this is a very common mistake made by many who make repairs, one O-ring will remain in the shaft after you pull the jet out. 4 out of 6 gens that surge have this problem especially if you hear a small amount of backfiring . the bottom jet must be very clean as well if it is the newer model without the thumb screw.

If it still surges after this unscrew the nut that holds the bowl This is the main jet, make sure hole (jet) is clean.
run the engine up no load screw it out untill the engine runs rich then slowly turn it back in untill it clears..then load it and do the same.
the arm is the govenor trying to play catch up this is normal.
tis is of corse that it has the mixture screw in the bowl..
If not remove the bowl locate the jet and clean it..
