    Hi, What is the model number? Is it a pull start or is this one equipped with a battery?

I'm not familiar with this particular generator but starting most of these is pretty much the same.

Turn all switches to the generator OFF locate the Carbuerator and put the choke on if it has a small bulb pump it a few times, now here is a trick I use I buy a can of starter fluid and spray a quick spray close to the air intake or air filter. This should work.

Need adjustment procedure and breakdown of governor.


check that you have the governor control rod on the butterfly lever of the carby connected correctly
it appears that the lever is at full throttle when you connected it and so the governor cannot pull it back to correct speed
if correct the throttle will be at full speed when stopped but will move with the go lever to slow when you manually push the gov lever

I am looking for an owners manual for a Coleman Powermate generator model PMO645250


Powermate doesn't have an owners manual listed for the PM0645250 on their website.

Since wintertime is a good candidate for power failures I would recommend using a good synthetic 5w-30 oil as it is a good year around oil. This would make starting much easier during the cold weather

Need to know what oil to use in 10 HP 5000 tecumsah engine - goes on our generator and I lost the manual


It depends on what temperature range the generator will be operating in. Below is a chart from Tecumseh that shows different oils for different temperature ranges. It says on their website to use a high quality brand name oil so you don't have to get actual Tecumseh oil.25b21be.jpg

Lost manual 6250 watt coleman generator what oil to use and were


If it has the Tecumseh engine..

Above 40°F Straight SAE 30W
Below 40°F down to -20°F Straight SAE 10W or SAE 5W30 or
Below 40°F down to -40° SAE 0W30 Synthetic

Using multigrade oils above 32°F will increase your oil consumption. SAE 10W40 is not recommended.

Per the manual, all the oils should be marked A.P.I. Service SL/SJ, but you may have to use something to a newer standard. E.G.: Service SM.

The oil sump capacity is 1-5/8 U.S. Pints or 0.76 Liters.

Hope this helps.
