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 !!! ***

It's almost certainly gummed up gas in the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner, and some spray instant start. Drain the gas from the tank and put a small amount of 50/50 carb cleaner and gas in the tank. Remove the air cleaner, open the choke, spray a little instant start into the carb and start it. It may fire just a couple of time. Keep the choke on to try to pull a bit of gas through the carb. You may have to do this a few times. Once you can tell some gas is flowing, open the choke slowly to keep it running until you use up the 50/50 mix. Then try a small amount of straight gas in the tank to be sure it works right, before you refill the tank. Make sure you use a stabilizing additive in any gas that you store for more than a month. good luck, Al K

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

Serges up and down and stalls after a fes coleman maxa 5000 er plus


Hi mxdidit,

Surging is generally caused by carburetor problems. Squirt some carb cleaner in it and see if that helps it at all. If that helps but does not do a lot, then the carb probably needs to be rebuilt. The carb could also just need some adjusting. Check for fuel leaks around the carb and also be sure the air filter is clean.
Good luck.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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

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.
