Question about Coleman Electrical Supplies

Open Question

I've just acquired a Coleman Sport 1600 generator made by Powermate. It's used but hasn't been run for a few years. It starts fine but when I move the choke after warm up the engine starts to surge (hunts). I can't find a manual. Any suggestions on possible causes/solutions? I did have to clean out the carburator as the float was stuck open but that problem is now fixed and the generator starts easily. The only problem I have now is the surging situation.

The carburetor is probably clogged up. Mix a bottle of carburetor cleaner with the gas to see if that would help. Also check/replace the fuel filter.

SOURCE: Coleman Powermate 5000 no electricity, runs fine

Hello;
Take a look at your outlets. Some of these units use pretty cheap outlets and short out. You will know if it is bad when you look at it. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

SOURCE: My coleman powermate generator will start but will not generate.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

the usual reason is a stuck float in your carburator , can be caused by dirt/rust etc , remove carb bowl and clean , there is also a very small needle valve which is attached to this float ( metering needle ) these can leak.
if all else fails always turn off the fuel supply to the generator whilst not in use

Coleman Powermate 8750 will not generate electricity.


I had a similar situation with a friends generator. After sitting around unused for a few years it would not generate because the residual magnitism was weak. I plugged a light into it and by using the throttle arm I breifly ran up the RPM and the light came on. DO NOT MAINTAIN THE HIGH RPM FOR MORE THAN A FEW SECONDS.
