Question about Coleman Powermate 200 Watt Compact DC/AC Power Inverter # PMP

Coleman 800 Watt DC Inverter Smoked... Need Repair Manual ASAP!

While using my Coleman 800 (1600 peak) watt DC power inverter today, it started smoking inside. I quickly disconnected it from the battery in the car & reconnected it a few minutes later. It still smoked with no AC output.

I need the repair manual for it ASAP so I can troubleshoot, diagnose & repair the problem.

Where can I find the schematic manual online for download? I had a site for free manual downloads but lost track of it. I think it was something etechnotes.com, I had to register and it saved my manuals to my free account. Ever hear of it or something like it?

Thanks, in advance.

SOURCE: lost manual 6250 watt coleman generator what oil to use and were

If it has the Tecumseh engine..

Above 40°F Straight SAE 30W
Below 40°F down to -20°F Straight SAE 10W or SAE 5W30 or
Below 40°F down to -40° SAE 0W30 Synthetic

Using multigrade oils above 32°F will increase your oil consumption. SAE 10W40 is not recommended.

Per the manual, all the oils should be marked A.P.I. Service SL/SJ, but you may have to use something to a newer standard. E.G.: Service SM.

The oil sump capacity is 1-5/8 U.S. Pints or 0.76 Liters.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Low voltage output from inverter

Ignore peak, that means nothing. RMS * 1.414 = peak. RMS is the actual usage you will get, thats all. Peak doesnt mean it will supply the peak wattage for a short period of time: salesmen with no electrionics training tell people this and its a big fat lie.
See what the unit is drawing, use a clamp-on ammeter on ONE lead (not both, or it will read 0). That shoudl tell you if your device is drawing too much. You should only be able to run that device UNDER the 800 Watts (watts = volts * amps, not including loss of efficiency which might be 10% or more, and even greater when warm)

My inverter keeps going to falt even though i only use it for a few seconds its only a few months old and has not been used mush its a 1000 2000 max


What are you trying to power with the inverter? Do you know how many watts your appliance need to run? Your 1000 watt inverter needs 83 amps from your battery to drive a 1000 Watt appliance. The minimum size wire you need to hook up the battery to the inverter is a size 6 as short as possible but no more than 25 ft.

If you are only tring to run a TV off this inverter, it appears you may have a defective unit. If you have had this inverter for only a short time, contact the dealer/store where you bought it and seek their advice. If you have had it for 90 days or more you can still contact the dealer, but maybe it would be best to contact the coleman company. You can go to their website nad find out how to contact the division that deals with this particular type of product.

My inverter is in alarm and won't produce 110 power. Checked input voltage and it is correct.


I have had this happen a few times.

Sadly replacement is the Best option.
Repairs can be %75 the cost of a new one.

The best invert we have been using is a Pure Sine 1500 watt inverter.

Sad news but hope this tip helps.

Power drop


Hey, Question: Is the 2400 watt the peak rating or the continuous rating of the unit, and what is your power source for the inverter. If 2400 is the peak, the 1200 is probably the continuous. Your 75 watt fridge will draw probably 150-170 watts to start up, which will load the inverter to draw 15-17 amps of load on your 12 volt power source. If the battery supply is weak, the current draw at startup will cause the voltage to drop and set off the alarm. Getting the start up out of order may work for a while, but will eventually blow the internal fuses on the inverter, or possibly blow out the capacitors. Check the condition of the battery supply, and make sure the bar fridge is in good working order to resolve this problem.

How many batteries do I need to run a coleman 1500 watt power inverter


It would depend on the load being driven by the inverter (which would determine the current drawn by the inverter), the capacity of the batteries and the shutdown voltage of the inverter.
