Question about Coleman Powermate Proforce 2500 Generator

1 Answer

The generator will not start. When I spray Gumout into the carborator, the engine runs for about 2 to 3 seconds then shuts off no matter what position the choke is in. Please advise.

GENERATOR WON'T START. IT HAS NOT BEEN STARTED IN ABOUT THREE YEARS.IT DID START AFTER I REPLACED SPARK PLUG,BUT ONLY FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS..ALSO SPRAYED STARTING FUID IN CARBERATOR. NO GO.


FIND THE FUEL SHUT OFF VALVE.IF IT WAS CLOSED WHEN YOU HAD IT RUNNING,THE FIX IS AS SIMPLE AS DRAIN OLD FUEL,REPLACE WITH FRESH GASOLINE,OPEN THE VALVE TRY TO CRANK IT AGAIN.
IF IT WAS OPEN WHEN IT WAS RUNNING,SOUR GASOLINE AND VARNISH HAS LIKLEY GOT TO THE CARBORATOR.
REMOVE THE AIR FILTER,LOCATE THE BOLT IN THE CENTER,ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CARBORATOR BOWL AND REMOVE IT. CAREFULLY EASE THE BOWL STRAIT DOWN,AS NOT TO BEND THE TAB THAT CONTROLS THE FLOAT LEVEL,OR LOSE THE FUEL INLET JET. EXAMIN THE BOWL FOR CORROSION OR GUNK.
THIS IS AN INDICATION THE CARBORATOR MAY BE PLUGED WITH GUNK,WHICH COMES FROM GASOLINE SOURING AND TURNING TO VARNISH AS IT EVAPORATES OVER TIME.
ON THE CARBORATOR,WHERE THE BOWL WAS TAKEN OFF,IN THE CENTER ON THE BOTTOM NOTICE THE FUEL PICK UP TUBE,TAKE A PIPE CLEANER AND CLEAN IT BY PUSHING STRAIT UP AND DOWN A FEW TIMES,THEN FLUSH IT WITH CARB CLEANER.
REPEAT THIS UNTIL IT IS CLEAR.
LOOK CLOSELY AT THE SIDE OF THE PICK UP TUBE FOR A VERY SMALL HOLE,WITH A SMALL WIRE,CLEAR THE HOLE AND FLUSH WITH CARB CLEANER.
CAREFULLY REPLACE THE BOWL AS NOT TO BEND THE TAB ON THE FLOAT,MAKE SURE THE NEEDLE JET IS IN THE NEEDLE SEAT AS YOU PUSH THE BOWL INTO PLACE.
PUT THE BOWL BOLT BACK IN,CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN IT.
WITH FRESH GASOLINE IN THE TANK,AND THE FUEL VALVE OPEN,YOU ARE READY TO TRY CRANKING IT.
IT MAY TAKE A FEW TRYS.
IF YOU FEEL CLEANING THE FUEL SYSTEM IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU,PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.TAKE THE MACHINE TO A SMALL ENGINE MECHANIC.
YOU MAY CAUSE COSTLY DAMAGE TO DELICATE PARTS OR UNINTENTIONALLY CHANGE THE FLOAT LEVEL CAUSING FLOODING OR STARVING OF FUEL TO THE ENGINE.
BEST OF LUCK...

Colman Powermate Generator will not stay running


This overflow can be caused by:

1. The float sticking

2. Gas inside of the float air chambers

3. The needle and seat have debris in them or a r damaged.

It is not a difficult fix but it does mandate removal of the carburetor float bowl.

You could probably do this yourself. It is much easier if you place the generator on a high work area so you can see the float and needle once you have the float bowl removed. Just make sure you do not drop the float assy so far that the needle comes out of the seat unless you have to remove the hinge pin SCREW for the float to clear the debris near the needles' pointed rubber head.

Thanks for using FixYa

Sometimes car won't start after driving. Can start it by spraying carborator cleaner in where air cleaner is. Replaced fuel regulator, didn't help. Doesn't do it all of the time, but want it fixed. If it...


Try cleaning the IAC valve locate near the air cleaner intake hole . Remove the aircleaner duct work. And when the car does start. Run engine at 1200 rpms or so. Spray carb cleaner inside the hole to the sides of the walls. you can see 2 small holes to the side of the walls. That is the IAC. Turn engine off ,let the cleaner soak in. Then restart the engine and spray some more. when I say spray , I mean a good 10 seconds of spraying right at the little holes . See if your car starts running better. if this does not work, replace the IAC it is on the outside of the fuel intake . You can also try the MAF sensor. Mass Airflow Sensor located on the big pipe on the air cleaning system.

fuel problem, the float in the carborator is stuck, if you tap on the carborator bowl it will probably get freed up.if not take the bowl off and spray the insides with carb. cleaner.
