Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

Open Question

I have a Coleman powermate 1850 PMO 401850. It won't excite under demand. I've replaced the capacitor and the bridge diode, but no luck. If I hand throttle the unit I get full power at the outlet. Thanks

SOURCE: I have a Coleman Powermate Pulse 1850 Generator.

Hi,
If the generator hasn't been used for awhile the rotor may have lost it's magnetism. All you need is to re-excite it. There are several websites that explain how to do this. It's a good place to start.

SOURCE: pull start recoil assembly

I bought a replacement recoil starter for my 1850 at Pats small engine parts. The part number for a 3.5 B & S is 499706. If you look on the heat shield on the side of the motor there is the engine model and s/n. Hope this helps.

My older Coleman Powermate Pulse 1850 is leaking gas from the grommet that connects the hose to the tank. I cannot get needle nose plyers inside the tank to tighten the nut (if there even IS a threaded nut...


I don't think there is any way to tighten or repair leak other then by replacing grommet. sorry I'm not much help but coleman powermate is no longer in business and I have had no sucess in finding a source for parts for you.Thank you and good luck.

Model pm0525312.18 serial 914080230 engine runs good but the voltage drops of from about 125volts to 90 volts when you put on about 1500 watts. does this model have a voltage regulator? what is a bridge...


According to the parts pdf, there is no voltage regulator. Voltage is adjusted by the rpm of the engine. If your have a meter that reads hertz (Hz), you can set the engine rpm by adjusting hertz to 60 cycles (Hz). At 60 cycles the engine is running at about 3600 rpm. Most engines develop their max horsepower at this rpm. If you are loosing power/voltage and the engine speed is not dropping below 3600, than most likely could be problem with capacitor, brushes or diode (bridge diode). The diode converts ac voltage from stator to direct current to power the magnet (rotor). Check for brush wear and test capacitor for value printed on part. It should test with 5% of stated value. Diode can also be easily tested with meter. Good holidays

I have a old Coleman powermate Model PC 54 5000 I have no AC Power. I have checked the rotor and stator for continuity in the windings, no problem. I have tried exciting the brushes, got a spark, but...


How did you put exciting voltage to brushes? Plus to plus, minus to minus or no mater? 
The condenser can be checked by a capacitance meter or an Ohm meter.
Diodes also by a diode test with a multimeter. Reverse should be infinity, forward 0.5 - 0.7 V.

Powermate pm0545212.02 wont generate


The exciter coil can be checked with an ohm meter. It will read fairly low ohms (probably under 100). There are diodes also. You can check them with an ohm meter too. They should read in one direction only. The red lead on the meter is + and that will conduct through the diode when your on the anode. When you reverse the leads of the meter, it should read infinite or OL.

I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 / No power output


Two suggestions. One: check for voltage from the secondary coil wires (if it has one). Two: unless stated do not do this, I have always flashed the excitor circuit through the 120vac receptical. Give these a shoot and I hope it works for you.

No power out put


After checking all connections check for power from the end of the alternator. if there is no power it is either the diodes in the end of the alternators rotor or the capacitor has blown ( round barrel shaped device with four prongs on ) When changing capacitor make sure you get the correct size mesured in micro farads.
