If the engine will not crank-if it has an electric start, first check the battery and connections to the starter and ground. If the battery is good and the connections are clean and tight, then I would check the ignition switch. If it clicks once when the key is turned to the start position, check for a seized crankshaft (see below) If it does not click, then it could be the starter, solenoid, or the ignition switch. If it has a manual pull start, and it will not pull, check to make sure the crankshaft can turn freely and if not, disconnect the pull starter and check it again-if it turns freely the rope start mechanism is hung up-it must be freed up before you can pull start it. If the crankshaft will not turn at all you probably have a serious problem that will require a major teardown.

Hi. I'm trying to help my Dad locate the replacement carburetor for his Coleman PowerMate Model PM0524000, SERIAL# 78661904. Can you help me?


Best way to find a carb is to start with the actual engine model number and type. It should be stamped on engine fan cover. With engine model information, contact local parts dealer for your brand of engine (not Coleman/Powermate, but Briggs, Kohler, Honda, etc.) There are many options for locating parts, including ebay once you have identified brand type model. Good luck

I have a coleman generator 5000 and the voltage reader is only going up to 98volts instead of the 120 volts. It is only powering my equipment half way. Is there anyway to fix this? Maybe crank up the rpm's...


That could be your problem the speed of your engine should be 3600 rpm in order to get 60hz.

Go to the link below to find the manual for your generator which should outline how to adjust your govenor.

Let me know how it works for you?
