Question about Garden

My just purchased/well used Coleman i/c 4000 generator puts out about 150 volts, no load, instead of 120v.The owners manual does not indicate how to adjust it; it says it is factory adjusted. It may have been back in 1989...

Probably running too fast. You can slow it down by adjusting a screw behind or near the carburetor. Monitor the voltage while doing this. The adjustment screw will be one which moves a lever with a spring attached to it.

here is a thread on it:

Hope this helps Tim

Testimonial: "Thanks. I am somewhat familiar with the adjustment process, I just wasn't sure if slowing if down would lower the voltage."

I purchased a Coleman Powermate 5000 6 years ago: Ser: 94411583. Never really used it for any length of time. Kept for emergency. An electrician checked it for voltage output a short time ago. 240V...


Voltage is adjusted by raising or lowering the engine speed (governor adjustment), however one must also pay attention to the rpm because your generator was designed to produce 120 volts at 60 cycles while turning 3600 rpm. Your electrician should have tested for htz while testing for voltage. I would recommend re-testing under load and adjust governor to turn 60 cycles to see resulting voltage.

I'm looking for an owners manual for a Coleman Powermate 4000


You may not be able to find the owners manual, but if you search using model / type #s off the engine, you may be able to find the manual for the engine from the manufacturer.

It should read 115v-120v with full load. Yes, you can slow the engine down just a little, depending on the engine, there will be a high rpm adjustment. 130v with full speed, no load, is really not too bad.

Coleman powermate 4000 pops circuit breaker on the 220 side.


Don't know what you mean by "on the 220 side".

The generator has two joined circuit breakers that each are 110 volts. Between the two is 220.

If just one of those is opening WITH NOTHING PLUGGED IN, then there are only a few explanations.

1. There is a short in the wiring or the wiring has been tampered with and connected incorrectely.

2. The switch that switches the mode from 120 to 240 has gone bad, possibly with a welded contact. This would occur if the switch is changed with load on the generator. This could put a driect short on half the generator winding and cause one of the breakers to blow.

3. Worst is a winding short in the generator. Fortunately this is the least likely.

4. The 220 receptacle has been broken and insulation failed shorting one terminal to another.

Hi there,
It sounds like there may be an intermittent short in the output or the stator windings. You'll need to carefully check for bad insulation between the winding and ground, I'd use a megger for this.

Looking for owners manual for coleman powermate 4000


Hi

First you need to change the plug with a new one with the same heat range(too long time).Priming the engine few times(put some gas in the cilinder through the plug hole)and start the engine until it runs constantly.
