Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Can get it to fire with starting fluid, but wont stay running like it is not getting gas. if i squirt a little gas in the carb it will run until gas is gone doesnt seem to get gas from carb .bowl has gas in it
The problems is in the carburetor, common problems when unit does not run often and rust get get build up. get some automotive carburetor cleaners and spray it heavy in the carb, don't worried about flooding it or damaging anything, it will dry out faster than gas. (use little gas if you need to) try to start it up and get it running with the carb cover off and continue to spray carb cleaner in the carb while the engine is running, do this couple of time and hope that would clear it out. if that don't work you will need to take it apart and clean it. you have small tiny object obstructing the carb flow. the unit doesn't have a fuel pump, it run on gravity feed, the carb are easily obstructed. hope that help a bit

If the bowl has fresh gas (smell it), then the jetting is plugged up. Remove the carburetor, disassemble the jets (Idle and main) and soak in carburetor spray cleaner--blow out with compressed air. If the fuel in the bowl smells stale, then remove the float and needle valve. Wash the needle valve seat, but not the needle--just wipe clean. Check that fuel runs out of the fuel hose--if not, check for a plugged filter or bad hose. Hope this gets you running.
