I have a Coleman Powermate Maxa 3000 OTV generator that is powered by the Techumseh Enduro Overhead Valve 5.5HP engine. To start the engine take an act of congress. I can't find any "choke" so its like starting a fire with two sticks. Any ideas?

I'm working on one right now. Make sure that all the gas in it is FRESH!!!. Then push the red primer bulb about 6 times. It should start. If it does but dies, push the primer as it dies to keep it going. If it does not start, push the primer 6 more times. You are right-there is no choke.

Hi! I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 maxa er plus. It wouldn't start so I check out the air filter, it was kind of dirty and I found gas in it. I cleaned my carburetor with carb cleaner even if it was clean...


The engine is pulling secondary air from the torn gasket area by the sound of it. It can't govern itself like that.
That must be fixed before any further tests !

Hello, I'm trying to get an old Coleman Maxa 5000 ER Plus to work again. The interesting problem is that i can get it to start and run, IF i squirt gasoline into the carb throat with a squirt sprayer, but...


First make sure you have fresh gas in the tank, as old gas can cause a 'no run' condition. Once you have fresh gas in the tank, make sure the gas flows freely all the way to the carb by removing the fuel hose from the carb inlet & checking for good flow (bad shut-off valve or obstructed hose by debris could cause same problem). Once you are sure that good, fresh gas is going into the carb w/o obstruction, remove the lower bowl from the carb - carefully - do not lose ANY parts, starting with the washer on the bolt. With fuel flow 'ON', fuel should flow freely when this bowl is removed, so shut off fuel valve in the hose. Now, if you carefully remove the bolt / brass tube from the center of this bowl area (center of plastic float) - remove bolt downward, like you would a lightbulb from the ceiling - this bolt should have several holes in the side, they are probably clogged, so unclog them with a needle or wire, wipe clean, and reinstall. That probably just solved all your problem.... if not, you likely will want to replace the carb completely, as it is not very expensive, and will surely solve your problem. *** Be careful with gas fumes !!! ***

Parts lists for Coleman generators are here: http://www.jackssmallengines.com/coleman_parts_lookup.cfm

More detailed information about the engine can be found by using the engine model number. Look around the fan shroud or engine block. Coleman used different engnes, however your gen may have incorporated a Tecumseh 10 hp engine. Good luck

No electric power generated from my Coleman Powermate Maxa 5000W.


the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on
