Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

2 Answers

Coleman Powermate on/off switch broke off. Is a DIY out of the ?

Coleman Powermate 8hp Model 19G412 Type 1120E2.

The on/off switch broke off when I decided to fire up the generator. Right now it is stuck in the on position and there is no way that I can turn it off without pulling out the spark plug connector. I don't plan on ripping anything apart until I get all my information together.

There is a wire in the back of the control pad...right behind the on\off switch...once it touches the naked body of the gen. it will shut off..

Generator sat unused 2 years. whatshould be done before using for long periods


Change the oil and you will probably have to rebuild the carb. If it has a starting battery, that will need to be replaced as well.

Hi. I'm trying to help my Dad locate the replacement carburetor for his Coleman PowerMate Model PM0524000, SERIAL# 78661904. Can you help me?


Best way to find a carb is to start with the actual engine model number and type. It should be stamped on engine fan cover. With engine model information, contact local parts dealer for your brand of engine (not Coleman/Powermate, but Briggs, Kohler, Honda, etc.) There are many options for locating parts, including ebay once you have identified brand type model. Good luck

NO 20amp 120v power


you probably tripped a circuit breaker. Carefully push in all the circuit breakers, I bet that one of them will give slightly and power will be restored.

Sometimes the 20amp outlet is also a GFI outlet. You may need to reset the outlet itself if so equipped.
