Turning off the auto idle is not fixing the problem. The auto idle is a mechanism that allow the engine to run at lower rpms when no load is applied to generator to save on fuel consumption and reduce engine damage. When the switch is on the unit should work like I described above. If the swich is off the unit should remain at 60-62 hz either with or without load. There are many factors that are involved in this system that all have to be working correctly in order for it to work. If you have a Tecumseh engine on your Coleman genset it is junk and will never work properly without constant adjustment to the carb and governor, and you will need a resistive load bank to adjust it properly. Shut the auto ible switch off if you have a Tecumseh engine and forget about it. To fix this problem you need to understand electronics, electricity, and small engine fairly well. If you do I can work you through the trouble shooting process. So let know.

If it is suppose to speed up there should be a switch that says auto idle. Just turn that off and this will cure your problems

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!


Excite the genset.

with the gen engine running,
1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
(make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
2) hold the trigger in the run position
3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
*** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.

Three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High


Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.
