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.

What kind of oil do I use in the Coleman powermate 6875?


You can use numerous engine oils. 10W - 40, 30W Detergent, 30W Non detergent (SAE)
The best all around above 40 deg F and below 100 F oil to use is a 30W detergent oil. Brand name does NOT matter. Oil level should be checked EACH time you add fuel. Change oil any time the oil appears Dark BLACK when checked regardless of the hour intervals. .

Coleman 6875, Does it have an auto idle???


Hi,
If you've got an auto idle function you'll also have a switch somewhere to shut it off, so look for that first.
Engine surging is almost always a problem somewhere in either the air cleaner or the carb. Check the air cleaner, if it's not dirty take the bowl off the carb and look for dirt in the bottom.

Regards,
Carl

Add auto idle to generator


Your genny should already have this feature as it is part of the function to maintain the output voltage, if it isnt working I would look for a service manual for it and taker it from there as there can be many things that could prevent it from working properly

Wont turn over


Check the oil level, these generators have an oil monitoring system that prevents the engine running if the oil isn't all the way up to the bottom of the threads in the oil fill hole.
