Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

Runs on choke only

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.

Automatic choke will not shut off once the engine is running so engine dies. Could it be a spring is missing ?


There is a diaphram that the link connects to the choke. It is between the carb and the gas tank, and runs by the vacuum from the engine. B&S engines have to rev up for the choke to open all the way.

Hi Most likely your engine shut off first then the light goes on as soon as the engine oil pressure dropped sounds like you have a carb problem and the motorcycle is running on the choke circuit. then it dies after the choke is turned off.

You say you cleaned the carb. If you did that by spraying cleaner in through the choke, that's good, but it doesn't get to the root of the problem. The problem is getting the gas into the carb. Try this. drain the gas. Put a small amount of carb cleaner and gas in the tank (about 1:1) Start it up, but don't run it dry. Let it sit for an hour. Then start it up and run the tank dry. Then try just a little gas to see if that fixed it. If not, repeat. Good luck Al K
