How do you remove the start stop switch mounted on the rope pull housing on the coleman 5000 powermate 7500 watt unit. You can't get the housing off without removing the start stop switch.

without seeing it, they usual have enough lead length to allow the cover to be moved so you can get to the wire, The switch usually has a blade with a slide connector that can be removed.

I have a coleman 5000w generator. when its running it's rpms are way high and my volt output on the 120 side is 153v how can i slow yhe rpms down is this a carb broblem thanks mark

Some small generators that do not have a built in AVR are set up to give the nominal voltage at it's nominal loading. this meens if it is unloaded the rpm 's creep up and so does the voltage.
I would suggest running the generator with the load you normally connect to it and ****** the fueling till you get the nominal voltage you require. (record any change you make)
If you are connecting this generator up to a house be very careful not to leave any sensitive equipment connected in the house as the voltage will be jumping eraticaly as it is loaded and unloaded, one item that gets hammered is the electronic contol on boilers/burners.

We have a power back generator 5050 watt we are trying to install the cord to plug into our house, what size cord do we need

If you are wanting to connect using the 120/240 outlet, I would use a #12 gauge 4 wire cable. If over 25 feet, then I would use a #10 gauge. The wire size will make a difference, so that is why I am offering the two sizes. Please make sure that you have a transfer switch if you are connecting to the panel. This will prevent someone from getting seriously hurt or killed.
thanks Joe

Hi , I have a Powermate Eco and after moving house it will not start up. It usually has the LED go green on power up and the hard drive kicks in and starts but now it flickers green but then goes amber and...

There might be a fault with the power supply. Take it to your local computer repair shop and they will be more than happy to test it for you for free.

I have a powermate PMA525500.01 that is putting out to many volts I am frying things in my house?

Possibly. Why do you think that it is putting out too many volts?

No load / slight load voltage of up to 128vac (could go as high as 132vac) is typicall, but should drop to around 122 or so at half load, and likely down to 112-115vac at full load.

Powermate 6250 model pm0545007.01 engine runs no a.c. output

You will need to install new diodes,they are located in the plastic housing behind the receptacles...It looks like little spark plugs..They work to put dc voltage to the rotor,without the exciter voltage applied,you will not get ac power out..The part number is 3483.01....You can buy these online for about $6 each,they have 2 inside the generator,and you should change both.
