No AC out put


After working on several of this style coleman generator,i have found that the lead wires in the windings that are soldered to where your brushes would contact tend to break.I don't know if it's a poor design or just a fluke,i would check to see if your getting continuity on the rotor and go from there.They seem to either "burn off" or just break.

I have a coleman 5000 that won't hold voltage at 110 volts under load. It fluctuates up and down. The motor is running steady. What could be the cause of this?


govenor problem maybe does the engine sound slower when a load is on.
you will need something to read the power frequency

3000 rpm produces 50hz uk
3600 rpm produces 60hz

so if you have a meter to measure frequency you will also know what speed the engine is running at

Have older powermate 5000 contractor gen. runs great but only puts out 5.5 to6.1 volts. has new brushes


Hello. Plug something into your generator's receptacle, say a trouble light. Then check the output. With no load at all [nothing plugged in, you will get a voltage reading that is low. regards, Joe

Powermate model 544000 generator undervoltage


There are basically 2 possibilities that can cause this.

1) Enigne RPMs are too low. but, since you already played with the throttle, this probably isn't the case. RPMs should be about 3600 though.

2) The voltage regulator / capacitor has high ESR (resistance) or is bad altogether. Replace.

My Generator is putting out voltage on both the neutral side and positive side of 110 Volt recepticles. When hooking a meter to both sides (Neutral & Positive) it is showing 184 volts! It burnt up a...


Check the voltage with a meter in all the recepticles with your meter leads in the left and right slots on the plugs. Is that 184 volts AC there? If so, your gen has big problems with the voltage regulator. Let me know what you read. You can check the right slot of each plug to the round ground hole on the plug too, should be 120 volts there.

I have a Coleman Powermate Pulse 1750 generator. The engine runs fine but lately I've noticed I'm only getting approx. 105 volts. Any suggestions.


Engine speed is low, does your meter read frequency? Set for 60 Hz @ speed. I doubt there is a voltage regulator adjustment. This may help

Coleman powermate 2500 generator : engine runs good ... little to No power on recepticle ... vom reads 2. volts


Sounds like you need to remagnitize your alternator, you can do this yourself but do it like this.
FIRST AND FORMOST STOP THE ENGINE AND WAIT TILL IT MAKES A COMPLETE STOP! AND LOCK OUT THE ENGINE SO IT WILL NOT ACCIDENTALLY START.
 pull the spakplug wire off the engine this WILL HELP ENSURE IT WILL NOT START. next take an old 120v power cord and cut the plug off with atleast 8 inches of wire on it. if it is a 2 prong wire or 3 it doesnt matter. grab your self 2  nine volt alkaline batteries, try just one battery first by plugging in the cord into a 120 volt receptical on your generator and make sure the circuit breaker is in the on position. MAKE DAM SURE THE GENERATOR IS NOT RUNNING BEFORE YOU DO THIS OTHERWISE YOU COULD BE ELECTROCUTED. it is quite safe as long as the generator is NOT RUNNING. put one lead on one terminal of the nine volt and the other lead on the other terminal and you will see a small spark if done right.MAKE SURE YOUR NOT DOWNWIND OF GASOLINE FUMES! if you have a 3 wire cord do not use the green ground lead use only the black and white or blue and brown. if its a two wire cord you cannot get it wrong. tap the wires on the battery terminals a few times. this shoud have remagnitised your rotor and stator. remove the cord from generator completely and put it away from kids and the incredibly stupid for safety. restart generator and plug in an appliance to see if it is making electricity. I recommend using a true rms digital voltmeter to check the voltage it should be between 110 and 130 vac rms for non regulated generator sets. if the 9 vold didnt do it you can use 2 nine volt batteries in series to flash the field. SAFETY FIRST ! ELECTRICITY CAN KILL, YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK, I AM NOT LIABLE FOR ANYONES STUPIDIY. IF YOU ARE UNSURE HOW TO DO THIS THEN DO NOT DO IT! TAKE IT TO A QUALIFIED REPAIRMAN. LIFE IS IRREPLACIBLE SPEND A FEW BUCKS TO FIX.

My powermate pm0647000 stopped generating electricity.


Flash it !
Start your generator, plug a single speed drill into the recepticle, while the generator is running make sure the drill is in the forward posistion then turn the drill chuck couterclockwise with your hand untill your generator power's up.
This simple fix " excites " the stator.
Good luck !
