Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
After four years the magneto will become demagnetized. Get a small magnet and find the spot on the flywheel where there is some steel which will be slightly magnetic. You can just stick it on there for four days or work it and tap it lightly on the steel for many minutes. Two hours should be enough to get it started and from there it becomes very strong as it revolves past the magneto's steel core. They use to use Strontium alloy to make it keep it's magnetism but they are cheaping out on all steel alloys now. When you can get it to draw in a steel bolt or some other ferrous item so it goes clack against the flywheel, then you have it ready to fire. If it has a compression release, make sure that is all the way over to start, then when it fires bring it back towards you to get full power. I left mine without gas in stroreage for two years and it just barely started. I pushed the plug-in GFCI center buttons a few times and it came to life.
