Most likely at the output shaft of the motor. If you are handy, you might be able to replace the crankshaft seal yourself, but this will probably require you to seperate the generator from the motor, and remove the cover holding the seal. If the leak is small, it may be best to just keep adding oil. If you have to take it to be repaired, it may be more expensive than the unit is worth.

SOURCE: checking oil in generator

I found some website help. I have this same problem.

I also found out a lot about the Powermate company via a customer service email reply: This has an elusive customer service number that i have not tried yet.

"
Powermate Corporation is not a part of The Coleman Company, Inc. They have been an independent company for over 10 years and we have no information on their products.

Powermate manufactured generators, pressure washers, air compressors and air powered tools. Information about those products was available from

Powermate Corp.
125 Airport Road
Kearney, NE 68848

Toll Free: 1-800-445-1805 (disconnected)
or 402-758-6303 (disconnected)
Web Page: www.powermate.com

Earlier this year, Powermate transferred the right to sell air compressors and air powered tools to a company by the name of MAT Industries, LLC, 625 Barclay Boulevard, Lincolnshire, IL 60069, 1(800) 628-8815. This company may be able to help you with questions related to air compressors and air powered tools.

In March 2008, Powermate filed for bankruptcy protection. We understand that customer service inquiries to Powermate via emails, mail and telephone calls will not be answered. However, some information about Powermate and its products continues to be available at their website.

If the problem with your unit is with the engine, check the engine manual that came with the unit to determine whether the engine has a separate warranty from the manufacturer. When Coleman was affiliated with Powermate, they did. If so, you can contact the engine manufacturer for a listing of warranty centers in your area. The contact number should be in the engine manual.

If you are needing parts for a powerwasher, please visit the site

Thank you,

SOURCE: checking the gas and oil levels?

There isn't really a guage to look at . What one does is to take out the plastic plug on the side of the engine and with the engine cold and level make sure that the oil level comes up to the lowest thread where the plug screws in.

You really should have a manual, so if it's missing look here for which ever "PM" number is printed on the tag on the end of your generator.

Regards,
Carl

You could do this but leak could also be around oil filler plug if not seated. The main engine bearing seal is more likely if the unit is old with large number of hours.

If you find a bad gasket, replace with the silicone make your own sealant AND DO NOT overtighten screws. That can worsen the problem with gaskets.

I have a Coleman 5500 with Tecumseh motor and it has a really, really slow oil leak when it when it is sitting in the shop not running. I can't tell where the oil is coming from. Any suggestions?


Look for a crack in the crankcase... possibly near a mounting boss. Also oil filler plugs sometime leak if overfilled.

Suggestion: Use some "gunk" engine degreaser to make it sparkle so you can spot where the leak originates. You probably need to put it up on a bench OR use an inspection mirror.

Coleman Powermate 6250 generator - shut off generator at 11pm after v4 hours normal use. At 5am, wouldn't start, pull rope wouldn't move to start. A few hours later while draining oil found mostly gas...


the usual reason is a stuck float in your carburator , can be caused by dirt/rust etc , remove carb bowl and clean , there is also a very small needle valve which is attached to this float ( metering needle ) these can leak.
if all else fails always turn off the fuel supply to the generator whilst not in use

Oil leaking from generator


Whose engine do you have? Briggs and Honda have websites where you can down load their manuals and replace the rear seal.

What type of oil for a Coleman 5000 Generator?


You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Carl
