How to drain gas from colemen 6250 gen. is there a drain or do i have to remove gas tank.


Just pull the gas line off of the carb. If the end of the hose is difficult to access, you can cut the hose, then put it back together with a brass hose barb. To be sure of the size, you can cut of a very short piece of the hose. I've been looking for a drain valve that could be installed instead of a hose barb myself. I don't know why these medium sized generators don't come with them.

I have a Coleman Powermate PRO-GEN 5000 (6250). It has been sitting for a year and the gas value was not shut off (oversite). When checking the oil, it smells like there is gas in the oil-is this possible?


when the engine sets for a long time the gas can seep bast in to the cylinder and their will be some gas you will need to change the oil and take the spark plug out and air i suggest you squirt a small amount of oil in the cylinder gas in the cylinder can wash out the lube to the rings and cause undo wear and start smoking turn the engine by hand slowly to allow lubing of the rings the gas seepage is most likely caused by a float that's not set correctly you may need to rebuild the carb with a kit around 20 bucks ans easy to do at least the clean it well to remove schlack that gas leaves behind when it dissipates and can cause issues.
replace with fresh gas and run the engine and it will smoke for a couple mins do to the oil in the cylinder remove the spark pug after running a couple mins and clean or replace the engine should be fine following the steps above. hope this helps

I tried to start my new coleman powermate 6250/5000,


Do check the oil after it has tried to start. Low oil cutoff would certainly cause the problem. Look for the "lost" fuel shutoff valve... there usually is one.

I have a coleman powermate 6875 engine runs fine and it all works till it gets hot then the engine still runs but not charging.


The unit should have a pop out fuse or set of fuses.
If you are drawing too much currant from the unit, it will shut down. If you plug in a simple 100Watt light and test the unit and see if it stops generating currant.
Max is only 5500.
You may also have shutoff thermo sensiors, if the caseing of the generator runs too hot or low on oil, it will shut unit down.

Keep in mind, if you have a shut off valve, turn the shut off valve, closing the fuel supply while running.
This will remove all gas from the bowl and not spoil after setting for long periods of time.
Same with oil, it will do damage to the engine if it just sets for long periods.
