I found some website help. I have this same problem.

I also found out a lot about the Powermate company via a customer service email reply: This has an elusive customer service number that i have not tried yet.

Powermate Corporation is not a part of The Coleman Company, Inc. They have been an independent company for over 10 years and we have no information on their products.

Powermate manufactured generators, pressure washers, air compressors and air powered tools. Information about those products was available from

Powermate Corp.
125 Airport Road
Kearney, NE 68848

Toll Free: 1-800-445-1805 (disconnected)
or 402-758-6303 (disconnected)
Web Page:

Earlier this year, Powermate transferred the right to sell air compressors and air powered tools to a company by the name of MAT Industries, LLC, 625 Barclay Boulevard, Lincolnshire, IL 60069, 1(800) 628-8815. This company may be able to help you with questions related to air compressors and air powered tools.

In March 2008, Powermate filed for bankruptcy protection. We understand that customer service inquiries to Powermate via emails, mail and telephone calls will not be answered. However, some information about Powermate and its products continues to be available at their website.

If the problem with your unit is with the engine, check the engine manual that came with the unit to determine whether the engine has a separate warranty from the manufacturer. When Coleman was affiliated with Powermate, they did. If so, you can contact the engine manufacturer for a listing of warranty centers in your area. The contact number should be in the engine manual.

If you are needing parts for a powerwasher, please visit the site for assistance.

Thank you,

Coleman Consumer Service

SOURCE: What kind of oil to use in a Coleman HP3500 generator

hi sally. Generally, high quality 30-weight detergent is acceptable for summer conditions; high quality 10W-30 is acceptable for winter conditions.

For a manual you can go to anybook store and get one for a few dollars. good luck with it.

Hello, I have a Coleman Powermate 5000/6250W and I can not fing the oil drain plug. There is one oil dip stick on each side of motor. Starting to feel like a dip stick myself.

I worked at a tool rental while attending college and have felt the same way as you when looking for oil drain plug on various tools. Some engines do not have a plug and you must tilt the engine to get the oil out. Others had a plug but could remove it so had to tilt anyway. Most small engines had the plug along the edge of the base of the engine. Look where the engine mounts to the frame of the generator. The engine block is about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch thick there and usually has a 1/2 " square head plug. The oil drains very slow thru that hole. Some gen sets had a small tube (4 - 5 inch ) attached to drain hole that made it easier to catch oil. Good luck.
