Surging 5000w Coleman Generator

It does fine when you first crank it. Once it warms up it surges back and fourth. I took the carb apart and it looked ok. Put it back together same problem. The only time it does not surge is when it has a full load on it. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

I had a Colman that only surged when it had a large load on it. ConsumerReports.org says that some Coleman generators just can't hold a constant voltage. Hondas are expensive but very good,.

Re. Coleman Powermate 5000 Watt Generator (surging)
Apparently, no one has a solution for this. I have been fighting this "piece" of equipment since the day I bought it. At first I had to spray gas into it to even get it started. After a new carburator, valve job, spark plug, new head head gasket, and new governor spring, it now starts after a couple pulls but still surges terribley. I am at my witts end and refuse to put more money into it. It's only good enough to run a couple of lights, just can't trust it to run and or ruin a refridgerator. Sadly disappointed in this so called generator.

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?

Hr 42 stuck slide.


Sounds like you still have some kind of fastener in there. Be careful. It also sounds like the slide is exposed and perhaps what ever it is covering can't be fully seen. I would try to google an exploded view. If you can't find one see if you can buy a new carburetor kit. if you have taken it all apart you should replace all the gaskets and "O"rings anyway, even if the carb was never installed. Are you using carburetor cleaner? if you are you may have caused some of the O rings to swell. A new carburetor kit will come with a detailed exploded view. If there is something holding it, you will be able to see it.
Best of luck

Does anyone have a solution to the surging problem?


Is it surging under load or not? Surging is generally fuel related and can be a multitude of reasons, most likely in the carb if it has sat. It can also be binding or sticking governor arm, make sure it is free to move, and you have the correct weight oil and level in it.

Have a 08 sportsman 500 HO. Can get gas to fuel pump but not to carb. Cleaned carb wtih carb cleaner, put back together and it fired for a second.( leftover carb cleaner I'm sure) Tried to start...


I was just working on an 08. They have a vacuum operated fuel pump. All of the dealers I spoke with said that a fuel pump going bad is uncommon. I would check to see if the vacuum line is craked. When you take the inlet gas line from the carb and turn it over, you should get a pulsating flow of fuel. Again, check vacuum hose first then assume the fuel pump.

Reset button or Fuse on my Infinity?


Ok, I took it apart, cleared the clog out, and put it back together. It wouldn't switch to "carpet". Got no answer on my question. Took it apart again, only I went further. Took apart the bottom - brush out, all inside bottom parts out, cleaned all that part of vac. No clogs down there. Ran the carpet/bare floor switch back and forth several times while I had it apart. Put it all back together and it worked fine. Still didn't find a fuse or reset button...
