SOURCE: Oil for Coleman Powermate 5000 PM0545305.03

My answer:

First of all - Almost every 4-stroke Genset engine out there should use a minimum 10-30 or else a 10-40 oil blend tops. Best NEVER to use just a straight weight, as in a 30 or 40 weight, as that would be way too "high viscous" at colder temps and could destroy the engine due to overheating at MAX Genset LOADS!

Next - If the Genset is indeed brand new then you need to use the proper fuel in it, as certain mfr's require different fuel blends (such as with certain B&S - Briggs & Stratton - engines), and those engines are set up that way to run on that blend alone. Using the wrong gas blend could damage the engine.

You really need to get a factory Users Manual for your Genset there and read it through thoroughly!

If it has gas in it now (and hasn't run in 3 years?) chances are the whole gas tank, and fuel lines, and Carb as well will need to be cleaned out from contaminated fuel - as there definitely is gum and varnish built up everywhere in those fuel delivery areas esp the most important component - the Carb! Been there - seen that - cleaned that! So I KNOW for FACT.

As for the OIL LEVEL - that is fairly simple - as all you do is unscrew (or in some cases pull out) the dipstick, and check the oil for proper level on the stick as well as cleanness (2 finger test like with car oil), and if it's even black or a silvery color then it definitely needs to be changed out NOW! Refill with fresh oil and your done there.

Check the Air Cleaner for cleanness as well, and service the filter if a foam element, or replace it if a paper element.

If the fuel tank has an in-line fuel line filter and it looks dirty change it out as well. Esp if the gas tank is made out of metal.

Check the spark plug for proper gap, and heat range, and burn color if the Genset has been run already. Should be a nice "light tan" color. If dark and wet - then you have Carb flooding problems.

That about covers it...

Anything else problem wise feel free to ask me here in post follow-up and I'll be glad to answer it for you.

Please post me a reply as to the found problem there, and the resolve to it by following my recommendations above. Also please rate my troubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,

Frank

Hello;
Take a look at your outlets. Some of these units use pretty cheap outlets and short out. You will know if it is bad when you look at it. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

SOURCE: My coleman powermate generator will start but will not generate.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.

Where do you buy the gas shut off valve for the 5000 power mate coleman generator with a 5 gal plastic tank.


Take the old valve, called a petcock, to a local lawn mower repair shop and they should be able to help you.

I don't know what kind of oil the powermate 1850 uses


As with most briggs engines if you are operating in an area where the temp is below 20 degrees...use 5w-20 or 30. Between 0 to 100 use 10w-30. above that 10w-40 can be used but be sure to check the oil and temp often.
