I have a fairly new (1 year, medium to light use) Powermate 5000. It runs fine but no power output. I spoke with a repair man who does service work for Coleman and he suggested that he has replaced the AVR board on many units but can no longer get them due to Colemans demise. what can I substitute for the original AVR board? What component gets fryed, I could replace that piece and keep going?
Don't want to buy a new gen!just bought a coleman 5000 watt 6250 surge runs great has suburu engine plugged in a light no ac power.put my meter on it no power.now one person says to replace the capacitor .is this a common problem with these units?i mean theres so many things that could go bad .if i could get some specs for it i could test each of the componets .and there is the other delema where or who do i get replacement parts from?

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.
Two suggestions. One: check for voltage from the secondary coil wires (if it has one). Two: unless stated do not do this, I have always flashed the excitor circuit through the 120vac receptical. Give these a shoot and I hope it works for you.
I had a very similar problem with my Powermate generator. The repair was fairly simple. I purchased a new capacitor from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. The part was less than $10.00 plus shipping. I just put the part number in from the owner's manual. to replace the part you remove the power end of the generator (four long bolts 7/16), Unplug the wiring harness and then remove the three screws which hold the clear plastic shield in place. All you have to do is pull the wires off of the blue capacitor and put the new one in. When you pull the end off you should also look at the diods to see if they look burned. If they do you can get these from Jack's as well. I hope this fixes your problem
have you conected the brushes on the right way? the leads are + and -.
you can run it up and use a 12v battery and connect it to the brushes correct polarity, with the othe LEADS removed and taped can shock you and chect the out put it it around 100 120v chech the AVR or brush polarity.
If yours dont have brushes it will have a capasitor that is prob out of spec.
Try replacing the capacitor. You can buy it from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. When you pull off the power end of the generator look at the diodes also. If they look toasted replace them as well
