    The owners manual DOESN'T seem to include information about the Tecumseh engine, which is where the mechanical governor is located.

There may be a choke handle that should reduce the engine RPM. Otherwise contact the Coleman technical support department.

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

Need adjustment procedure and breakdown of governor.


check that you have the governor control rod on the butterfly lever of the carby connected correctly
it appears that the lever is at full throttle when you connected it and so the governor cannot pull it back to correct speed
if correct the throttle will be at full speed when stopped but will move with the go lever to slow when you manually push the gov lever

Can i take apart the lower part of my briggs and stratton to repair my govenor?


Are you saying that it surges at full throttle and wont idle down or shut off? If so it is likely not a governor problem. Surging is a lean condition. Some models, particularly yard machines, will surge no matter the adjustment unless under a load. If it were a governor issue it would run faster and faster beyond full throttle. IF it wont idle down check the throttle control and throttle linkage and check for a sticking throttle shaft before suspecting governor. Not shutting off could also be in the throttle control. A ground clip is in the control. if the tab is not engaging the clip or the wire is not connected then the motor will not ground. Check those things before messing with the governor, especially if the machine was running good and no one has messed with it yet. Governors don't just come out of adjustment by themselves.

Your throttle plate and or governor arm may be out of whack. Download a technical service manual in a pdf off the internet and follow the instructions on how to set them. Be sure to put a 6mm pin or bolt in the hole while adjusting. You want to set your governor arm prior to setting the throttle plate. I had the exact same issue on mine and that was the resolution. Good luck and be sure to set your rpms correctly for high and low speed idle. Again the technical service manual will provide info on how to do it all. They sell a little hour / rpm gauge on ebay or amazon for like 15 dollars where you just have to wrap the wire around the plug wire 4 to 5 times and it will read your rpms. :)

Can I change a 10hp generator motor with an automatic throttle to a manual throttle?


Yes, you will be able to control the throttle. Look for a lever that pulls on the governor spring. On some generators, the governor spring attaches to an arm with adjustment screw and locknut or metal tab that bends into position. All that you need do is to pull on the governor spring to increase rpm. The governor spring pulls on the governor arm that is attached to the fly weight governor inside the engine. The fly weight is turned by the cam gear in most cases and the force that it produces is constantly trying to close the throttle. The governor spring provides the counter force to open the throttle. Without the governor, the engine can over rev. Good luck with your project.

I HAVE A POWERMATE 5000 THAT SHUTS DOWN UNDER LARGE LOAD . I THINK I NEED AN IDLE CONTROL MODULE.THERE IS A 2 WIRE MODULE IN THE START CKT. #21009XA IS THIS IT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE .


Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck
