Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

4 Answers

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. It starts on the first pull and runs great, but there is no power coming from the outlets. Any suggestions? I have removed the wiring harness from the outlet panel and tested for current. No current comes through the wiring harness.

Excite the genset.

with the gen engine running,
1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
(make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
2) hold the trigger in the run position
3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
*** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.

Coleman 5000 produces power,will run light or skil saw. A 1500 watt heater trips the circuit breaker so does a large fan. I checked voltage and found it varies by engine speed.If you speed the engine up the voltage goes up from 110-118 to 130-140. would this be two seperate problems?(voltage regulator) or what.

Thanks Bill

How do i excite my 6250 powermate and where can i buy parts. Runs great but no power at all. Thanks John


One quick way to "excite" the field is to plug an electric drill into the outlet of the running generator. Engage the trigger on your drill and spin the chuck backwards. DO NOT HAVE YOUR FINGERS WRAPPED AROUND THE CHUCK WHEN DOING THIS. IF IT WORKS (not 100%) THE DRILL WILL START UP!!! Coleman was bought out by Pramac, you can find there webpage here.

Hope this helps.

Your generator produces proper voltage and 60 cycles at 3600 rpm. Use meter to adjust voltage/engine rpm. If after adjusting rpm setting and gen. does not have proper power, remove cover to generator and examine brushes and commutator rings for wear and voltage regulator/rectifier for burned components swolen or leaking capacitor and replace parts as necessary. Parts are available www.jackssmallengine.com Good luck

You may have just lost residual magnetism in your rotor. Start genset then apply 12 vdc to 120 v outlet for less the 1 seconds. This will be enought to restore the residual magnetism to the rotor and the unit should be producing power now.

Coleman 6250 generator runs rough


Fresh fuel? Does carburetor have adjustable jets? Turn the high speed jet (at bottom of float bowl) about 1/4 to1/2 CCW (looking at bottom of bowl). If no improvement, carburetor should be torn apart and cleaned. This also applies if there are no adjustable jets. Is there a fuel filter anywhere?
