Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

1 Answer

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250 with 10 hp engine. The unit is about six years old but has not been used much for about four years other than running it once in a while as a maintenance action. I have checked the gas and oil which are OK but the engine will not start. Any suggestions for trouble shooting?

Hi Mike. Siphon out the old gas and replace it with fresh new gas, not gas that has been sitting for months in a can. Next, remove the air filter and if it is dirty get a new one but do not install it yet. Next remove the spark plug and if it is nasty replace it. THEN get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Spray a little into the air filter chamber and start it up. Continue to spray enough starter fluid to keep it running until it takes off on its, own, usually in under one minute. Then put the air filter back in. J.

Three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High


Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.

Checking oil in generator


I found some website help. I have this same problem.

I also found out a lot about the Powermate company via a customer service email reply: This has an elusive customer service number that i have not tried yet.

"
Powermate Corporation is not a part of The Coleman Company, Inc. They have been an independent company for over 10 years and we have no information on their products.

Powermate manufactured generators, pressure washers, air compressors and air powered tools. Information about those products was available from

Powermate Corp.
125 Airport Road
Kearney, NE 68848

Toll Free: 1-800-445-1805 (disconnected)
or 402-758-6303 (disconnected)
Web Page: www.powermate.com

Earlier this year, Powermate transferred the right to sell air compressors and air powered tools to a company by the name of MAT Industries, LLC, 625 Barclay Boulevard, Lincolnshire, IL 60069, 1(800) 628-8815. This company may be able to help you with questions related to air compressors and air powered tools.

In March 2008, Powermate filed for bankruptcy protection. We understand that customer service inquiries to Powermate via emails, mail and telephone calls will not be answered. However, some information about Powermate and its products continues to be available at their website.

If the problem with your unit is with the engine, check the engine manual that came with the unit to determine whether the engine has a separate warranty from the manufacturer. When Coleman was affiliated with Powermate, they did. If so, you can contact the engine manufacturer for a listing of warranty centers in your area. The contact number should be in the engine manual.

Thank you,
