Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Did you check, that the magnet is on the flywheel.
When you cleaned the flywheel, did some metal rasping gather around it.
The magnet should be strong. A small steel instrument will be pulled by it.
The high voltage coil can be tested for resistance with an Ohm meter. The resistance may be some kOhm but not MOhm. If MOhm it should be replaced.
If the coil and magnet are OK, and well attached to the flywheel and aside with a minimal air gap, then the coil may be checked by turning the flywheel. As the voltage on coil ends when magnet passes by the coil should be very high, the only way for checking is with a spark plug, connected to the checked high voltage cable, the thread of the plug well connected to motor case. A spark is the prove that it is OK
Check also the HV cabel and the connection of other coil end to motor case.
I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me. Some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs (meaning useless). Better don’t rank.
