Look...the screw you adjusted moves an arm which is connected to the scew-base by a spring...that arm has a nut that keeps it connected to a cylinder that goes into the engine...adjusting that arm will rase the rpm...that will make it produce more than 150 and it will automatically adjust itself with the load...
adjusting can be done by twisting that cylinder very slowly to the right direction....twist it a tiny bit and then tighten the nut and turn it on...if it got even lower then twist it to the opposite direction..and so on..

Probably running too fast. You can slow it down by adjusting a screw behind or near the carburetor. Monitor the voltage while doing this. The adjustment screw will be one which moves a lever with a spring attached to it.

What type of oil do I use 1850 pm0401850


Oil Type. Use new good quality oil such as SC, SD, and
SE grades. The oil to be used depends upon the temperature
at which the engine is operated:
Summer: (temperatures of over 40 degrees F/10 degrees
C) SAE 30 or SAE 10W-30, SAE 10W-40
Winter: (temperatures of below 40 degrees F/10 degrees
C) SAE 20 or SAE 10W-30

The speed will change the 'frequency' too. You need to make sure you still have 60 Hz. You may have need a voltage regulator adjustment, not a speed adjustment.

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.
