A Coleman Powermate 6250 with a Briggs and Stratton engine new won't crack. Got gas to crab and motor full of oil. Spray starting fluid in it it until it's gone. Why wouldn't it start? ??


If its new, SOME generators will not start unless at least 3/4 full of gas. Spark plugs secured all the way in? Gas switch on? Pull the choke? NO MORE starting fluid, Bad Louie, BAD! some of the suggestions i posted above may help :) but, no more starting fluid.

I have a coleman 6250 generator the carb bowl keeps flooding and it wont start a spring was at the bottom of bowl i have spark and fuel pressure


If it is B&S he spring is to hold up the plastic float housing to keep a tight seal to base of carb. Sits in the center of the bottom of the plastic piece and the bottom of the bowl.

I have a coleman powermate premium plus 6250 generator,put in new plug ,new filter ,changed oil,cleaned the carb,put in new gas. runs ok at half choke but when go full choke it starts backfiring and runs...


if you are running the engine at full CHOKE, then it is flooding the engine, but if you meant off full choke, then the carb is still stopped up. Try soaking in carb cleaner overnight after removing jet & all rubber goods. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Coleman Generator starting problems


If you started it for just a minute, it never got warmed up and MAYBE the spark plug fouled. Check it first.

Sometimes one forgets where to set the choke for starting. And if engine is already warm from a short run they can be hard to start if too much choke is used and it floods... Again, when you check the plug, if it is wet this MAY be the problem.

To check fuel getting to the engine I have used an UNLIT propane torch into the carb to give an engine a mixture that it can run on without flooding. You usually have to remove the air cleaner to do this. That is a trick I have used for "cranky" engines.

Since you stired up the gas, the fuel filter may have got plugged.

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator it get gas and spark and oil is fine but wont start


Lets see, Do you have any ether or old school lighter fluid? If you use ether spray a little into the air intake just before you pull the cord for a start, if it starts you have a carb problem. Same for the lighter fluid, remove the spark plug and squirt a small amount down in the cylinder, again if it starts you have a carb, probelm. Take the carb. off the engine take note of the rods and springs, take a picture get it in good focus so you can put it back together. Take the fuel bowl off the bottom of the carb and clean the jets and all see if that will help.
