I had one of these and it was very sensitive about getting the carb jet plugged up from leaving gasoline in the tank and carb bowl. I had to take it apart and clean it w/ card claener several times. I can tell you the engine is super sensitive ab out the needle jet setting. Too rich or too lean and it won't run at all or will gas you out from the smoke.

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.
