Testimonial: "Thank you very much."
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,

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.

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.

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