Coleman powermate 6560 generator won't stay running

We received the generator as a gift in 2006 and have not ran it. due to TS Fay we decided to test run it to see if it works and it has issues staying on. If I add gas to the collaborator it starts but will not stay running.

    OMG i can't even believe I found this post. We also bought ours on 06/11/06. Pd 500 bucks at Wal Mart brand new. Registered online. Have receipt and everything. We start it and it and the motor runs, but goes up, down, up, down, and does not run at a smooth "rpm" or whatever you call it. Messed up for sure. 500 bucks wasted. THE NUMBERS FOR COLEMAN HAVE ALL BEEN DISCONNECTED how incredibly convenient..... We called Wal Mart and they won't do a thing about it either. Lesson learned I guess. Never buy a coleman generator!!!!!!

    I cant get mine to start. Hasnt been used since hurricane charlie. I have the "on" switch turned on, the choke up, and its not even turning. Gas is full and so is the oil. Any suggestions?

    I'm having the same problem after receiving my 6250 back 3 years ago after being rebuilt. I've removed the air filter and sprayed carburator cleaner in the carb. and even added B-12 to the gas to clean the carb and bowel. At this time it stays running for about 3-4 seconds and kills. This is the first time I've tried starting the gen. since receiving it back, it has been stored in my garage all that time with NO gas in unit until yesterday................. Need some help!

Most of the time when my coleman 6560 won't run after long periods of non-use. Here is the surest way to get it going: Remove carburetor bowl with 12 mm wrench. You will see a fixed fuel jet screwed into the side of a verticlal tube. (it's the tube from which you unscrewed the bowl screw. The jet is stopped up with varnish. you can remove the jetand clean out the small hole in it, or you can un-plug it without removing it with a (small) paper clip. larrymax@cox.net

Spray carb cleaner in the carb and clean it. it a common problem with any gas engine that sits too long get an inline fuel filter and that will help I've had a coleman 6250 about 10 years and no problem. Give that a try....

I have an old coleman powermate 6560 . Its missing the spark plug (which got thrown away) and i can't find ANYTHING on what spark plug to use in this generator.model number is PM0645250


The J8 spark plug is typically used on almost all small motors. You can google J8 cross reference for a list of alternatives that will work.

if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
if it wont turn over then it could be siezed or dropped a valve.

Oil for Coleman Powermate 5000 PM0545305.03


Yes, SAE5W30 is just the right oil for this machine,it will take about a quart to fill it up to the bottom of the threads in the oil fill hole.
The engine of this generator is essentially just like a lawn mower with a fixed throttle setting. You should expect all of the same issues as any small engine that's been sitting for a while. Check the fuel tank for water/debris, check the carb for fouling, check the spark plug, etc.

If the generator has been sitting for 3+ years without running you may need to flash it to get any voltage out of it. If you get the engine running and it won't make any electricity ask me directly and I'll talk you thru the procedure.

I looked on www.powermate.com for an owners manual but they only seem to have the parts list, rats.

Regards,
Carl
