Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Motor will only run with choke on only. As soon as you switch the lever over to run, the engine dies as if you put the choke on.
If you put a rag over the front of the carb intact the engine runs a lot better
Float is not sticking and needle valve has been checked
I live in florida so low temp. not the problem.
High speed jet is varnished, by restricting airflow your forcing the engine to draw more fuel through a partially clogged jet. will not hurt the motor, but it will worsen the fuel consumption until you clean the high speed jet. if i was you once i had it apart i would go ahead and clean the entire carb. generators are bad about doing this because they get used so sparatically

Well sticking float is not the problem. Most likely the carb is clogged up. WHat you have is a lack of the proper fuel flow. I suggest you remove the carb and take out needle screw and look inside for jet. Remove jet with proper sized screwdriver and clean. Blow it all out and reinstall jet and set screw to 1 1/2 turns open for starters.
