Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

1 Answer

No connection for a 5000 Watt Devilbiss gas generator.

I have a 5000 Watt Devilbiss gas generator. It's 10 years old. I would like to install a transfer switch in my home and there is an issue. There are four standard receptacles on the gen set - two 120 V / 20A and two 240 V / 20A. The plugs on the transfer switches that I see are L14-20 and L14-30. Since these are not readily compatible with the generator how do I hook up the transfer switch? Thanks.

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?

I have a devilbiss generator mdel #gb5005 runs great but no power output any ideas


If the unit has been setting for a long time you would need to start with re-exciting the field.
If this does not resolve the problem the first check the winding for short to grounds, also check the resistance readings.
If these are all ok and within specs... then you will need to check the diode.

Need a replacement on-off switch for a DeVilbiss GB5000-2 generator


My switch broke as well. Instead of trying to find one, I removed it, and mounted a heavy duty toggle switch on the front of the shroud, just below the original location. Connect the original wire to one side of the switch, and a wire connected to a good ground to the other side. Btw, the off position on the toggle switch is run, and the on is now off. This repair has served me for years.

That's interesting that you bypassed the fuel pump after noticing that the carburetor was below the tank, not needing a fuel pump to start the engine.

Maybe they put a fuel pump in to ensure that the float bowl valve is not the only thing preventing gas from overflowing into the carburetor when stored for a long period of time.

I would put the pump in if that's the way they originally designed the fuel supply for the engine, just to be safe.

Good luck on this repair.

In any power generator installation it is always advisable to have a ground/earth rod (minimum 3 ft/1 metre long) attached to the frame of the generator, especially when connecting ancilliaries such as yuor transfer switch. The Earth and Neutral pins of the output sockets on the generator should also be interconnected. They are usually linked at the factory on assembly.
