    Is it capacitor excited or does it have a voltage regulator?

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.

You have to get a cord that has a plug on on it. On the other end of the cord strip the insulation off the ends of the wire about an inch. It would be easier if you put small clamps on the stripped ends of the wire. Connect the black wire to plus on a car battery and white to negative. Start the generator and plug the cord in to a outlet on the generator just for a second and take the plug out. The generator should now be producing electrical current. If not there is something burned out internally.

Starts fine...no juice....sat for 10 years in the box...started using it 3 weeks ago...worked fine until yesterday....starts...runs..no juice...no circuit breakers blown...what's up?


Colemans were known for losing what is known as "residual magnetism", especially when sitting for long periods of time without use. This residual magnetism is necessary for exciting the field to produce electricity. Here is what you can try: Plug a 110v drill into one of the 110 outlets. While the engine/generator is running, with an open hand (not fingers wrapped around it) spin the chuck while holding the drill trigger in the run position. Many times this small amount of current that will be produced by spinning the drill motor will restore the residual magnetism and excite the field. Keep in mind that if this works, the drill motor will begin to spin immediately since it is plugged into the outlet. Hope this helps.

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


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.

Engine runs but won't generate any electricity


Sometimes the generator loses the magnetic field that allows it to produce power. Do a Google search on "flashing a generator field". There are many ways to do it, but I would recommend doing some reading before trying it. Your "dead" generator could produce hazardous voltage once it comes back to life.

Also, before trying any of this, make sure the circuit breakers on the generator (if equipped) are not tripped.

Good luck and be careful!

Coleman Powermate 5000 no electricity, runs fine


Hello;
Take a look at your outlets. Some of these units use pretty cheap outlets and short out. You will know if it is bad when you look at it. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
