Flashing is only done of the residual magnetism has been lost in the rotor, if it has gone it cannot generate any power in the stator for voltage or in some units to keep them running. Flashing is best done by someone who understands generators, and involves in directly connect a DC source to the rotor for a few seconds to re-vuild the magnetism

Generator sat unused 2 years. whatshould be done before using for long periods


Change the oil and you will probably have to rebuild the carb. If it has a starting battery, that will need to be replaced as well.

My Coleman propane furnace kicks out once and a wile and flashes a 10 flash code (gas flow with no call for heat) what need to be fixed the furnace is only 1 year old.


This sounds like you have an intermittent main board problem. It may be turning on you furnace when the thermostat is not calling for heat. It also could be a short in your low voltage(thermostat wire) going to your furnace. Either way you need to have it checked. It's under a year it should still be under warranty.

I have a coleman evcon furnace and it wont work it gives me a flash code of 1 what does it mean


One flash mean ignition failure. The sequence is: T-Stats calls for heat, inducer motor comes on, igniter glows orange (look through glass), then gas comes on and burner lights, approximately 1 minute later the indoor blower comes on. If you don't see the glow, most likely the igniter is bad. If you see the glow but no flame, it's a gas problem, supply or defective valve.

My Coleman Powermate 6250 generator has no power output. After the carburator was cleaned, I flashed it. A voltage meter shows there is power being generated, but none so to light a light bulb. What to do...


Take the cover off and flash the rotor again with a 12 volt battery. Positive lead goes to the top or right side brush. Negative to the other brush. Just touch it on, then remove it, and check for power at plugs.
If that doesn't do it, change the AVR (voltage regulator)

Coleman 6200 won't work


Hi Judy,
Generators DO last a good long time for the money, but they have to be both used and maintained in order to keep working properly. What has most likely happened is that you didn't use the generator at all for a year, after it sat on your dealers shelf for a few months not being used, and so the tiny bit of magnetism it uses to "kickstart" the process of making electricity has worn down. The good news is that this is easy for a generator shop to repair, no parts involved and the minimum labor that they charge. They need to do something called flashing the field of the generator. What they can't do is get Coleman to pay for it since they aren't around anymore, go ahead try the 800 number (waits patiently).

Be nice to the poor generator techs at the shop.

Coleman powermate 5000 gen.


I assume it is a hand start genset. The most common problem if it has been sat for a while is rust on the ignition timing flywheel. If you take the pullcord housing off (recoil) then you will see a big flywheel with what can only be described as a big forked prong with a couple of wires on it. This flywheel should be stainless steel and rusts when sat around for a while without use. Its job is to complete the circuit to the spark plug every time the flywheel passes the forked prong at a given spot on the flywheel, the faster the wheel turns the faster the spark hence the engine runs quicker. Clen the rust off with a releasing agent (wd 40) hey presto!!!!!!!!!!!
