Check the vent in the fuel cap to make sure its free to breath. It could be creating a vaccume in there and starveing for fuel. Maybe run it with the gas cap off and see if the problem gos away.

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

My powermate 5000 with subaru engine will run anywhere from 30-60 minutes and shut down. One light pull to the pull start and it runs great for another 30-60 minutes. Never a problem to start it back up...


There is debri or dirt in gas tank and eventually it gets sucked up and clogs the screen filter on the end of gas line. Drain gas tank and flush out a few times. let dry and put new gas in it. check your gas can, if it is metal, it may have rust in the bottom of it and it goes in the gas tank and clogs screen, make sure you have a clean gas can that you use to fill the generator.

if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
if it wont turn over then it could be siezed or dropped a valve.

I have a coleman powermate 5000 genertor w/a subaru engine.


Try removing the float bowl from the carbuerator and empty it out. Also check the float valve to see if there is debris under it. Thi problem is definitely fuel.

Propane-converted generator sometimes sputters out and dies
