Question about Coleman Powermate Proforce 6,000 Watt 12 Hp Portable Generator #PM0106000

1 Answer

Coleman Powermate 6750

The generator is not putting out any voltage. I have replaced the voltage regulator and brush set and I tried flashing it but still no luck with it.

You will need to check the resisitance of the stator and rotor windings, and also each rotor/ring to ground (IE rotor shaft) All tests to ground should be 0 M ohms, stators vary but typically around 1ohm or so, and rotors approx 20-30ohms

SOURCE: Powermate PM0496500.02 No voltage output

Here is a simple test to check field and other wiring. With engine off apply 12v ac 1 amp to 110v outlet plug on generator. This will energize the field windings and should cause the armature to produce dc voltage at the brushes and produce a nice magnet. If there is a short in the field or broken wire or shorted capacitor there will be no dc reading at the brushes. . This test is the opposite of what actually occurs when the engine is running. That is the armature produces a magnet fed thru the windings, regulator and brushes. If dc voltage is present at the burshes, remove 12v ac and start engine to check for output. enjoy

SOURCE: generator wont put out enough voltage, only get 107 volts, is this a voltage reg. problem

This problem is either that the engine RPM is too low (most likely), or that there is something amiss in the voltage regulation. Get yourself a DMM that measures Hz, plug it into the output and see if you get 61.5 Hz, if not look for the adjustment on the governor spring. On some Powermates this is a screw that pressed on the governor arm, on others it's a little tab the governor spring attaches to that you bend. Do this at no load. FWIW 61.5 Hz is also 3750 RPM of the engine.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Coleman Powermate 8000W portable

You need to check at the terminals of the actual alternator itself.
There should be the AC 120V +/-10% right there, then it should feed out to the electronics.
Most likely you have an alternator problem, if there is NO voltage coming out? It may have gone open circuit. Often a problem.
You need to obtain a service manual, to have any shot at repairing this unit, it's almost impossible without one.

If the engine is running with the alternator not outputting then you must check with the LOAD TRIP switch.
if not remove the load and check if there is output. If not there is fault in tha alternator which might need some consensus.

Your generator produces proper voltage and 60 cycles at 3600 rpm. Use meter to adjust voltage/engine rpm. If after adjusting rpm setting and gen. does not have proper power, remove cover to generator and examine brushes and commutator rings for wear and voltage regulator/rectifier for burned components swolen or leaking capacitor and replace parts as necessary.

ENGINE RUNS BUT NO POWER TO OUTLETS


When you flash the field, are you going + 12 volts to the top or right side brush? Negative to the other brush? Try three times for 2 seconds?

Take the cover off and flash the rotor again with a 12 volt battery. Positive lead goes to the top or right side brush. Negative to the other brush. Just touch it on, then remove it, and check for power at plugs.
If that doesn't do it, change the AVR (voltage regulator)

Engine runs but no power aat outlet????


Start with brushes and rings. Make sure your rings are clean and the your brushes have a good length. Flash the fields with 12V battery. Apply positive to the brush nearest the bearing and negative to the back brush, while genset is running. Use rubber gloves when doing this and keep hands away from rotating parts. You should see the voltage climb when you flash the fields. This would mean that you need a voltage regulator. If voltage does not climb, then you will need a new genset.

Three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High


Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.

I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 / No power output


Two suggestions. One: check for voltage from the secondary coil wires (if it has one). Two: unless stated do not do this, I have always flashed the excitor circuit through the 120vac receptical. Give these a shoot and I hope it works for you.

Colman powermate 5000 no putting out any electric


If you are getting some power, even if it only 2vac then you may have to flash the excitor circuit. If nothing then take the end cap off the generator and clip your meter to the metal portion of the brush holders or exposed wire from them. Start the generator and see if any voltage is coming from the brushes. Even if there is nothing try flashing the excitor.


To flash the excitor circuit on a coleman ( the generator is built by generac) you need a 12 volt battery. You quickly apply 12 volts via your 120vac recepticals. NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO SECONDS! Then check you ac voltage.

Give this a few attempts and if this does not do it, I would say the winding repair did not work. Buy another generator and use the engine for a go cart or backup engine since this generator is so cheap.
