When I restarted the generator it has no 120 V output. I "flashed: the unit but still can not get any power out. Any suggestions would be helpful along with a schematic. TY

    Thanks Bobcatflusa. The generator had a bad diode so I replaced both diodes and the capacitor. Thanks for you help.

Hello, I'm trying to get an old Coleman Maxa 5000 ER Plus to work again. The interesting problem is that i can get it to start and run, IF i squirt gasoline into the carb throat with a squirt sprayer, but...


First make sure you have fresh gas in the tank, as old gas can cause a 'no run' condition. Once you have fresh gas in the tank, make sure the gas flows freely all the way to the carb by removing the fuel hose from the carb inlet & checking for good flow (bad shut-off valve or obstructed hose by debris could cause same problem). Once you are sure that good, fresh gas is going into the carb w/o obstruction, remove the lower bowl from the carb - carefully - do not lose ANY parts, starting with the washer on the bolt. With fuel flow 'ON', fuel should flow freely when this bowl is removed, so shut off fuel valve in the hose. Now, if you carefully remove the bolt / brass tube from the center of this bowl area (center of plastic float) - remove bolt downward, like you would a lightbulb from the ceiling - this bolt should have several holes in the side, they are probably clogged, so unclog them with a needle or wire, wipe clean, and reinstall. That probably just solved all your problem.... if not, you likely will want to replace the carb completely, as it is not very expensive, and will surely solve your problem. *** Be careful with gas fumes !!! ***

Parts lists for Coleman generators are here: http://www.jackssmallengines.com/coleman_parts_lookup.cfm

More detailed information about the engine can be found by using the engine model number. Look around the fan shroud or engine block. Coleman used different engnes, however your gen may have incorporated a Tecumseh 10 hp engine. Good luck

It is not a problem like to know if i can use my coleman 5000 maxa er plus 10 hp. With A welder with out damage it. Tanks


Yes, you can use a welder with it. Pay attention to the ratings of the welder, don't exceed running watts of the generator. It would also be a good idea to try and use a welder that is less than the running watts rating of the generator. Then you would have some extra capacity to deal with fuel quality, maintenance history, momentary undervoltage, altitude, etc.

Powermate Maxa 5000 er will not run stably


Check the fuel filter. My company designed hybrid generators that are far more efficient. They use batteries to power your equipment, and the generator runs intermittantly to recharge the batteries when needed.

If you would like to convert to hybrid, contact me at buffalonymann@yahoo.com
