Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
You probably will need to replace the switch if it flashed over. I would disconnect it and document the exact connections before as there are usually a bunch of wires to the switch. Test the switch with an ohmmeter.
The flashover MAY have discharged the magnetic field of the rotor and you may have to "flash the field" to restore it. Google "flashing field" as there are a lot of methods.
Worst case is if the unit is a brushless generator and the flash over in the switch shorted the rotating diodes on the rotor. That will require servicing of the generator part of the unit to replace the diode modules.
