SOURCE: coleman generator needs repair?
Coleman generators are junk and are not broken in at all from the factory. The most likely problem is that your brushes are not making a good contact or they are worn down completely. The cause is that the slip rings on a Coleman are very rough. As long as your engine is run at 60-62 hz steady there is nothing else that will cause you this problem period! Unless when the wires where stuffed in the generator end" from the factory" they where stretched to tight and have come loose and/or rubbed again the rotor. I have seem this problem very few times, but it is a Colem quality. Don't go replacing the diodes and the capacitor. If a diode goes out it goes out. If a cap goes out it goes out. If either one goes out you have no output, very simple.

I have to leave a comment for cfa6094. Your pretty good at flexing your cyber muscles. I am a service tech in the repair field and deal with people like you all the time. If you are the owner of the equipment you should properly maintain your equipment. Sounds like you are not very organized. Sound more like crises management to me. Is mrfixit the only person you asked about this problem? One more thing, sound like you are a bit of a procrastinator to me. LOOK AT ME NO SPELL CHECK!

Hi, First remove the knurl nut on the top. Remove the top and then the glass globe. There are several types of mantels most of which tie with a string that is part of the mantel top. The newer ones have a wire clip in place of the string. Which ever type you had on before you need to remove the old pieces completely. Since the mantles burn to an ash they will disintegrate when touched but if it had the metal clip you need to remove it. Tie or clip the new mantle over the lip on the output orifice being careful with the screen underneath. Replace the glass globe and top, put the nut back on finger tight. Remember that the mantel turns into ash when it burns for the first time so keep the gas low to start it till the mantle forms properly ( in the first minute) Good Luck, this should Fixya!

The leathers have dried out, the new replacements don't always fit the older lamps, you can buy the parts at Walmart, easily replaced, but getting the new parts to seat right takes a while, be patient, it'll get going after a couple blisters. Check the mantles while you are at it and pick up a couple of them, you'll need them. And some fresh gas.
