Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator

2 Answers

I have a coleman powermate 6250 genpower 305 10 hp ohv. I was having trouble with it cutting out while it was running so I changed the oil, air filter, spark plug, cleaned out the tank, put a new gas line with an inline filter & fresh gas. It will not start. I took out the spark plug to test spark, there is none. I'm not sure what the proper gap is for the plug and the coil. And I'm not sure if thats the problem.

    i have this same generator- never had this problem - cause for no-spark could very likely be a broken (internally) plug wire. try getting a new one, or at least try to check continuity on it. Then check the magnetic field spark generator. If it's loose it won't work.

Most likely the problem is the "low oil" sensor. Remove (white) sensor wire and check for your plug firing. If it fires, recheck oil level in sump and/or pull and clean sensor.

I cannot locate the owners manual for my Coleman PowerMate 6250 generator 10 hp? Any place I can find this online quickly thank you


Most PowerMate manuals are available here: http://www.powermate.com/productmanuals.php?cat_id=3 . However, describing it as the PowerMate 6250 10 HP generator is insufficient to find the correct manual. The Coleman PowerMate line has several models with 10 HP engines and a 6250 Starting Watt (5000 W running) capacity.

These include the Powermate PM0435005; the direct link for this manual is http://www.powermate.com/pdfs/2011/12/29/pm0435005.02.pdf .

Please add a comment with the actual model number of your generator if you need further assistance with finding the correct manual for your generator.

I hope this helps.
