Your owner manual states 25:1 but 50:1 in California. 25:1 would be 5.12 ounces of oil/gallon or 2.56 ounces in a half-gallon.
Here is the link to your manual also.

SOURCE: My Coleman Powermate 7000 won't

I not you said you "checked the oil level" My experience with most portable generators is that they must me positioned as level as possible and the oil level must be fully serviced as full as you can get it without oil leaking back out of the dip-stick hole on units WITHOUT an extended dip-stick. Unless those conditions are met the low oil level sensor ends up presenting a false low oil signal and it grounds out the ignition. DO you have Spark at all? If you do have spark and it still does not run respond with the MODEL number off of your ENGINE and I will show you where the main fuel jets are located so you can make sure the orifice is clean.
Some units have a fuel solenoid that presses into the main fuel jet recessed area and shut off the fuel to the carb. This is also an area that debris causes havoc.

Thanks,
Kelly

If you have a good spark, and there is fuel at the plug, the only things to stop it fireing up are a sheared flywheel key knocking the timeing out, or the engine has low compression due to wear or damaged piston and ring.

Rototiller won't start


A small engine carburetor sitting with gas in it is a a problem waiting to happen the ethanol in fuel clogs carburetors and it sounds like it has done it to yours remove and clean carburetor with carb cleaner that may do the trick or you may have to soak it in cleaner solution and rebuild if the rebuild does not do the trick you may need a new carb as some of the jets are clogged Try to run engine completely out of fuel leaving the carburetor empty s to help with this problem in the future also using a fuel additive for ethanol is helpful

I own a 97 mercury villager an just won't start


I have a 98 model.
Someone will have to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem when it won't start.
Could be a long list of causes depending on which issue.

Tecumseh 4.5 hp engine won't start


First thing to check on a Tecumseh; pull the half inch bowl nut (main jet) out of the bottom of the carburetor. Give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner then pay special attention to the teeny tiny hole that is right at the very top of the threads. It's so small you can hardly see it and if it clogs, your mower won't start. Best of luck to you.

My Toro Model 20070 that until now has always started on the first pull, won't start at all now. It started fine last week. It's getting spark (a little more yellow than blue). I replaced the plug,...


Hold the butterfly valve (behind air filter) open with a screwdriver, while somebody else tries to start it. Toro has had problems with atuomatic chokes. If it fires right up, thats the problem! If so, just wire it open, or contact Toro for a repair kit. Try using starting fluid, not carb cleaner, and spray directly into the head through the spark plug port. If you didn't do it already, blow out all the ports in the carb with compressed air, or carb cleaner. Also, be sure the safety lever is engaging correctly (top bar on handle) at the engine. Lawn mowers are pretty simple, so the problem is most likely simple too.

I put premium gas in my 07 sportster. It was hard starting for a couple of days, now it won't start at all. I drained the premium and put unleaded in but it won't stay started.


Your premium probably had ether or alcohol in it, which acted as a solvent for all the old gas gunk in the tank and lines, and gummed up the carb. You'll likely have to finish flushing the tank and lines, and rebuild the carb to clear the gunk.

Thank the gubmint while you're doing all this extra work.

My tanaka is not running smoothly and shuts off when idling


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see day lightthrough it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:

1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.
