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'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!

Coleman powermate 6560 that runs good but wont gennerate power, i tried to exite it by plugging a drill in & holding the trigger in & turnning it backwards but still no power any suggestions?

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....

Bad coolant temp sensor or EGR valve stuck. You can remove and test temp sensor (the one for the ECM--has only one wire) using cold and then hot water and read resistance with ohm meter.

Electrical power system service required.....ABS warning light, generator warning light, brake failure...car stalled and wont't restart


usually caused by failed generator. Fix the generator and other lights will also extinguish. The car should jump start, but will not stay running without a charged battery. Recommend removing the generator and take to parts store for testing. Would you like instructions for removing generator?

The issue with the generator that gets low and high when it start running out of gas that effect the A/C and result of high voltage getting to the unit and burn the capacitors and it should by saved by the fuse make sure that the gen not run out of gas if you have the A/C on and that the fuse is the correct one for the A/C and again check the air and see you may got a bad capacitor.

2006 Chevrolet impala lean code issue


Unplug the sensor harness and re-connect a and c terminals using jumper wires. You should see about 4.5volts or a bit more from the center terminal (meter(+) to terminal, other lead to good ground. Do this with key on, engine off.. With engine running, (same hookup) You should see a different and varying reading that changes with rpm. Before testing check the vacuum hose going to the sensor to make sure it's intact and has vacuum or test will be invalid. Test procedure I outlined is the last one I remember. Possible GM changed procedure, so best to check a manual if readings are different than what I stated. There are other items that can change mixture but I have seen this a few times. Otherwise, you will need to go through system item by item before finding anything.

Remington Axcess hedge trimmer wont run at all.


Check your fuel lines. It is probably getting air into the system. Also check inside the gas tank to make sure the fuel pick up line is still attached.


If you need more assistance please provide an exact model number and I can better help you.

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

Start Porblems


This may or may not help. Hopefully it will. We recently purchased this 1998 chrysler town & country. Everything was working fine, started fine, etc. we took it to get emissions done.....passed emissions.. .made it home. i turned the car off to run inside for a minute. came back out car started.. ran for 3 seconds than died out. tried again... ran for 3 seconds than died out... after that it no longer would do anything. all the lights worked except in the ignition module. the top dashboard lights worked though. I then noticed that the "alarm set" light stayed lit. after replacing fuses and running an OBD test and found no trouble codes or issues with fuses it dawned on me it may be the alarm. after searching the internet for hours i found a forum that suggested unplugging the battery for about 5 minutes....rehook it and then try starting it again. well i tried doing that the first time using the REMOTE to unlock the doors and nothing happened. i locked the doors and repeated the same battery unhook-rehook process except without using the remote... (i noticed a lot of forums saying that the remotes can be deffective in that they somehow trigger the alarm if the transmitter is not working properly)... so after unhooking and rehooking the battery and using only the key to unlock it started right up! so i've decided to not use the remote at all and have had no other problems. let me know if this helps

Enable Custom Messages


It's hard to see what you recorded the custom messages on, since you left that part out.

I'm guessing that whatever you recorded the messages on has a manual. Try reading it. Is your day greeting a custom message or is it one of the 32 announcements? However you play that message, you need to either replace it, or assign a new message or mode to the auto attendant.
