Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Don't know what you mean by "on the 220 side".
The generator has two joined circuit breakers that each are 110 volts. Between the two is 220.
If just one of those is opening WITH NOTHING PLUGGED IN, then there are only a few explanations.
1. There is a short in the wiring or the wiring has been tampered with and connected incorrectely.
2. The switch that switches the mode from 120 to 240 has gone bad, possibly with a welded contact. This would occur if the switch is changed with load on the generator. This could put a driect short on half the generator winding and cause one of the breakers to blow.
3. Worst is a winding short in the generator. Fortunately this is the least likely.
4. The 220 receptacle has been broken and insulation failed shorting one terminal to another.
