    Actually, the wiring diagram i need is for the the output panel. I have 240 v at the plug from the generator, but as soon as I push in the breaker on the panel the motor stalls out.

Couldn't get you a wiring diagram but the contact info should get you to someone who can. The other links will get the manual and parts breakdowns.

SOURCE: Hello I have a coleman

I can't get a wiring diagram or a manual without the model. type, and code off the engine.
What I can do is describe the usual wiring and see of that helps.

The ones I've worked on have a very simple wiring harness,
a black wire runs down into the front of the engine, this is the kill wire that attaches to the ignition module (coil), the other end of the kill wire connects to the center terminal of the on/off switch.
A white wire runs from the switch to the oil shutdown module, at the switch it's connected to the terminal that's closed when in the run position. The other switch terminal connects to a wire that runs to the frame ground. The gray wire from the oil sensor module connects to the oil sensor on the side of the engine.
That's pretty much all of the wiring there is for an engine that doesn't have electric start.

Rate me please,
Carl

SOURCE: generator wont put out enough voltage, only get 107 volts, is this a voltage reg. problem

This problem is either that the engine RPM is too low (most likely), or that there is something amiss in the voltage regulation. Get yourself a DMM that measures Hz, plug it into the output and see if you get 61.5 Hz, if not look for the adjustment on the governor spring. On some Powermates this is a screw that pressed on the governor arm, on others it's a little tab the governor spring attaches to that you bend. Do this at no load. FWIW 61.5 Hz is also 3750 RPM of the engine.

SOURCE: What type of oil for a Coleman 5000 Generator?

You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: My coleman powermate generator will start but will not generate.

The voltage regulator controls the output. You will need to check that first.

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 / No power output


Two suggestions. One: check for voltage from the secondary coil wires (if it has one). Two: unless stated do not do this, I have always flashed the excitor circuit through the 120vac receptical. Give these a shoot and I hope it works for you.

Runs great but will not produce electricity


To flash the excitor circuit on a coleman ( the generator is built by generac) you need a 12 volt battery. You quickly apply 12 volts via your 120vac recepticals. NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO SECONDS! Then check you ac voltage. Most of the time the brushes are burnt up when voltage is low. Check the brushes first. You can access them by taking the end cap off of the generator via two to four screws. The brush holder is easy to spot, two wires leading to the front of the amature. Hope this solves your problem.

Colman powermate 5000 no putting out any electric


If you are getting some power, even if it only 2vac then you may have to flash the excitor circuit. If nothing then take the end cap off the generator and clip your meter to the metal portion of the brush holders or exposed wire from them. Start the generator and see if any voltage is coming from the brushes. Even if there is nothing try flashing the excitor.

Give this a few attempts and if this does not do it, I would say the winding repair did not work. Buy another generator and use the engine for a go cart or backup engine since this generator is so cheap.

If yours dont have brushes it will have a capasitor that is prob out of spec.

Try replacing the capacitor. You can buy it from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. When you pull off the power end of the generator look at the diodes also. If they look toasted replace them as well
