Question about Coleman Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Maxa powermate 4000 watt generator, will not start. Rust is on flywheel. carburetor was cleaned, but that did not help. While a new plug might be needed, there is a small blue arc across the gap at the firing point. It has been over 3 years since this machine ran. I really need it since I am part of an emergency communications group. The engine turns over "easily" when the starter rope is pulled.

Hi! I have a Coleman Powermate 5000 maxa er plus. It wouldn't start so I check out the air filter, it was kind of dirty and I found gas in it. I cleaned my carburetor with carb cleaner even if it was clean...


The engine is pulling secondary air from the torn gasket area by the sound of it. It can't govern itself like that.
That must be fixed before any further tests !

Serges up and down and stalls after a fes coleman maxa 5000 er plus


Hi mxdidit,

Surging is generally caused by carburetor problems. Squirt some carb cleaner in it and see if that helps it at all. If that helps but does not do a lot, then the carb probably needs to be rebuilt. The carb could also just need some adjusting. Check for fuel leaks around the carb and also be sure the air filter is clean.
Good luck.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

It is not a problem like to know if i can use my coleman 5000 maxa er plus 10 hp. With A welder with out damage it. Tanks


Yes, you can use a welder with it. Pay attention to the ratings of the welder, don't exceed running watts of the generator. It would also be a good idea to try and use a welder that is less than the running watts rating of the generator. Then you would have some extra capacity to deal with fuel quality, maintenance history, momentary undervoltage, altitude, etc.

You may have just lost residual magnetism in your rotor. Start genset then apply 12 vdc to 120 v outlet for less the 1 seconds. This will be enought to restore the residual magnetism to the rotor and the unit should be producing power now.

12000 watt powermate won't charge the battery


Some Coleman generators have rectifier /diode pack behind panel others have a diode inside generator cover however when diode fails it usually fries the winding. Your winding could be within the generator or under flywheel depending on model#. If your generator had a fuse to protect winding then test diode and replace as necessary. You may also just plug a small battery charger (1 or 2 amp ) into 115v plug to charge battery / power coil. Good luck and email if you have other questions.

No electric power generated from my Coleman Powermate Maxa 5000W.


the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on
