Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

1 Answer

I have a Coleman Powermate pm0545007 generator with a B&S OHV model 200000 engine. It has always run fine, but after running it for about 3 hours last week, I can't start it. It has no spark. I replaced the spark plug, but still no spark. Oil level is ok (filled to top of plug). I checked wiring and found black wire that runs from on/off switch to engine is crimped between metal frame that connects engine to the generator frame. This looks like it make cause a short. Should this be crimped in the frame, or should it hang loose? Also, I'd like to bypass the low oil switch. There's a black wire from the low oil switch and a white wire from the on/off switch that connect to a sealed electrical device on the motor frame. How do I bypass the low oil switch?

    Thanks for the reply. The problem turned out to be the crimped wires. I ended up cutting the wires on either side of the crimp and splicing them together. The engine started on the first pull.

There should not be pinched wires...

if you mean "how do I bypass the low oil SENSOR" then the answer is to just disconnect it and tape up the end or snip it off in a location where it won't ground out...the way these engines kill the spark is by grounding the cdi coil wire...so fix that pinched wire and youre probably good to go...dont disconnect the low oil sensor unless its causing trouble....having low oil protection is good and might save you from blowing an engine

Also I trust youa r enot cleaning polishing them with sanpaper etc, they have a very fine finish and should be polished with a super fine grit paper or stone, pref while turning the engine.

Tecumseh model 100 engine 10hp on a coleman powermate generator it starts ok however after about 3 minutes the engine sputters like it is running out of gas and quits.


check the fuel mixture settings i believe main screw is 1 3/4 turns from closed and the idle screw is set at 1 1/4 turns from closed. These settings are for non OHV models. also check that if you have a fuel filter installed that it is not plugged up.
