This is caused by excess heat build up. If the voltage is low then ohms law says that the amperage will rise. The excess amperage causes the heat that is destroying the recepticals.

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

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

SOURCE: Coleman powermate 2500 generator :

To what I know about this model - it IS NOT inverter type. Electrical motor works pretty much like car alternator with out reftifier. The ONLY magnet on rotor is a small, 1x2 initiation magnet, that helps to start the induction current. After that, induction current thru rotor is controlled by AVR (automatic voltage regulator) in a way, that output voltage stays at needed level.

The fact that you read 2.0 volts on output - tells you that your initiation magnet is OK. One of few things went wrong, in probability order: winding on rotor, AVR module, winding on stator, brushes woar out.

Take back cover off from electric generator part, use voltmeter to measure continuity on stator (2 or 3 poles, must be within 50 ohnm), continuity of rotor thru brushes ( normally within 100ohm). If broken - have to restore windings. It is DIYable for rotor, but hardly possible for stator. If those are ok - most probably your AVR is dead, you can not test it yourself, so get a new module to try (but try to make arrangements for return, if there it was not the reason).


Just fixed Champion 3500 generator myself, purchased for $50 as broken.

Coleman 5KW gen motor shuts down when A/C switch turned on


Sounds like a problem with the wiring of the outlets after the circuit breaksr. Take apart the outlet box and have a look for burned or broken wires, melted outlets, and/or small critters stuck in the wiring.
I recently had to repair a generator that had its voltage regulator taken out by a frog!

Powered up Coleman Generator. Generator made grinding noise


I don't know what unit you have, but I would say it was overloaded and shorted out the stator, burned up the voltage regulator, exploded the capacitor, or had a loose connection that caused some wires to burn up. Maybe remove the end plate off the generator end and take so pictures and will go from there.

TWIST PLUG


go to an electric supply store and let them know it is a 20 amp plug. The big box stores only have a few selections of plugs
I had the same generator and had to modify the plug to make it fit correctly

Go to an Electric supply store and tell them it is a 20 amp plug. They should be able to get the correct plug.
I had this generator and had to adjust the prong to make it work.

Motor runs but have no power coming out of outlets of mygenerator


1 - Check the circuit breakers on the front of the panel where the outlets are located.
2 - Make sure the black molex plug on the back of the panel where the outlets are located is plugged in securely.
3 - Carefully take the plastic endbell off the generator ( you'll need a 7/16 inch wrench and socket) and look for broken or missing brushes, broken wires, etc.
4 - If you're not up for #3 take it to a good repair shop. :-)
