Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

Generator is running well, but no power to outlets. I have tried resetting circuit breaker buttons and called online they said use jump cables from 12 volt battery and touch brushes no results. Any other suggestions.

Replace the sockets they have most likely gone bad, I have found this on a lot of generators I've worked on.

You run the engine the touch the brushes using 12v batt. jumper cables to excite the exciter coil. If no result, check the carbon brushes length or change AVR.

I know of two conditions that will cause the gen set to either under produce or not produce electrical power. Either the capacitor in the armature circuit has gone bad and needs replaced, or the stator field windings for the exciter (smaller wire) field generation has an open in the circuit. Use an ohmmeter to check for continuity on the plug that feeds the internal circuit board under the back cover (four long bolts).

Porter Cable BSI550 W 5,500 Watt Generator With 10 Hp Engine No AC output


Sounds like the generator unit (sometimes called the generator head) has overheated and melted the insulation in the windings. This is the same as an electric motor "burning out", and if this is the case, then the generator is toast. If you happened to notice that the lights or fans were getting dim or slowing down before the breaker tripped (without the gas engine slowing down) then this is most likely the case and you generator is toast. But if the output just suddenly quit, then it is possible that some smaller electrical component has failed. In any case, it's not something external that you can easily reset or replace. Sorry for the bad news.

How do I remove the fuses from my proforce 3000 generator


Hello, I am not familiar with fuses on this model. It has circuit breakers that are on the main electrical outlet panel. These generally are press to reset. If you are experiencing the circuit breakers "tripping" on you, then your load is too great for that circuit. You might have to split loads between all the receptacles. If you are wanting to remove the circuit breakers, in order to keep the circuit supplying power because of the nuisance factor of resetting, then I would advise against it. You might burn out the generator part and this can lead to a very costly failure.

DEWALT DG6300B NO POWER OUTPUT


Hello avid.....

If there is no power to the receptacles:

1. Turn the circuit breaker switches off and disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.


2. Turn the circuit breakers on and test the GFCI's by following the procedures in this manual

on page 1 -

TO TEST A GFCI:

Start the generator. Turn the auto idle switch off. Push in the TEST button (A) on the receptacle.

The RESET button (B) will pop out. Power is now off at the receptacle.

If the RESET button does not pop out, the GFCI is not working. Do not run

generator until the problem can be corrected. To restore power to receptacle,

push the RESET button in. If the RESET button pops out during operation,
stop the generator and check the generator and equipment for defects.

3. Place the voltage selector to the 120 Volt only positions (unless you are using a tool that

requires 240 Volts).


4. Turn the idle control switch off.


5. Turn the circuit breaker(s) off and reconnect the electrical loads. Be sure that the plugs are

securely connected to the receptacles.


6. Turn the circuit breaker(s) on.


7. If there is still no power at the receptacles, take the generator to an authorized DEWALT
service center. To locate a DEWALT service center nearest to you, call 1-800-4-DEWALT

Had a storm, blew all the breakers got the breakers re-set but now the coffee maker won't even start


Hi, W/D here.
Try something else in the outlet. Most kitchens have ground fault outlet circuits, so you may have a tripped outlet breaker. These type of circuits can come from the panel through a ground fault circuit breaker, or they can go to the first outlet on a run of outlets. If the first outlet is ground fault protected, the others on that same run are protected as well. If another device will work in your coffeemaker outlet, the coffeemaker is probably dead. If another device will not work in the outlet, and your coffeemaker will work in a known, good outlet, you'll need to look at all of the outlets in your kitchen and bathrooms for an outlet with a "test" and a "reset" button on it. If your outlet is on that circuit, you will need to push the reset button to restore power to your coffeemaker's outlet.
Best regards, --W/D--

Coleman Powermate 5000 reset problem


Yes, there must be a protection device on the unit somewhere. It should be indicated in the owners manual. It may be on the box the outlets are in, or built into the cover of the generation unit.

RV Generator Power Cutting In and Out


I'd say you probably have to have the gfi receptacle replaced. The gfi recepts can be pretty touchy sometimes. The test and reset buttons sometimes stick or do not reset due to just being old and not used very often. I am an electrician and we see this alot. I try and test mine often as I can remember to do it. If you are not qualified or experienced with this type of work please find someone who is. If you do attempt the change out, just please do it with the power to the outlet off!! Be careful around electricity! Good luck, I hope you find the right solution!

Generator runs but can't get any electrical power at plug in. Honda EB 1400x


Is there a circuit breaker or reset button. If there is and I'm sure you have checked it you may have to replace it. You can check for power with a power meter before the circuit breaker or reset button. If you have power before break simply replace the breaker. Do you have the owners manual? look in it for the location of this device if you can't locate it. You can get a service manual for it online for 15 bucks. It would be well worth the investment.
