Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
It had been a while since I ran the generator, but in a recent power outage it started up, and for about ten minutes supplied power. In quick succession there was a brown out, a clunking noise, and it stopped supplying power, while the engine continued to run. The reset buttons indicating short circuit or overload were not triggered. Any idea what the problem is, and what to do about it?
crclarkphd has a problem that sounds like a brush failure. The clunking noise was likely the remainder of the failed brush getting knocked around inside the back end of the generator so you need to take it apart and inspect things closely. Here is a link to a general solution I posted some time ago that may be of help.
Guest jj has a fried breaker in one leg of the 220 outlet. Even though it doesn't look tripped it's failed, check it with an ohm meter.
