how can i drain the gas tank to put in fresh gas

The gas in the tank is old and the unit will not continue to run
Asked by: Jack
Disconnect the fuel filter which is immediately below the fuel tank. Let the little hose drain into a suitable container for disposal. Reconnect the fuel line and fill the tank with fresh fuel. Done!

I purchased the Powermate PM0126000 generator frm HD just before Hurricane Sandy, Where is the spark plug located?

Asked by: Frank
It is located on the side of the engine jug. It is surrounded by cooling fins and will have a rubber spark plug connected to it.

new fuel filter for #PMO126000

can not find them anywhere
Asked by: sroko
Take the old filter to a local NAPA store. They will have compatible filters. It's mostly a matter of matching the hose size. If an exact match to the body size isn't available, always go larger so that you have more cross-sectional area and thus don't introduce backpressure into this gravity fed fuel system.

6,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Manual Start Portable Generator with Cord is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little dynamo! we purchased this for Hurricane Sandy - I must admit I would have bought another model if I'd had a choice, thank God I didn't. Comes fully assembled, wheeled it out of the box, added quart of oil and 7 gallons of gas and fired on the first pull. It's easy to manuever (of course when not running), stores easily. It's loud but when you have no electricity, that is music to the ears. Hurricane Sandy took out our power and we ran the generator for the 10.3 hours we were without electricity without a refill. We powered a fridge, a freezer, LCD and LED TVs, cable box, PS3, electric fireplace, coffee pot, lights and charged cell phones. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update - Power Out and Working Great! Well Sandy knocked out our power almost two hours ago - I had cords connected since last night - went outside and started her up with no problem - running light, pump and cable booster in basement on a 50 ft 14 gauge cord. Another two 100 ft 12 gauge cords are running into the first floor of the house and powering two lamps (one actually a halogen flood light), Fios modem, big screen TV, computers and chargers - no flickering - all working flawlessly - I have 10 gallons of gas on reserve and will check on things after about 9 hours of running. After the storm will look into hooking into the main panel - very happy with this unit!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ready to Go Bought mine for hurricane Issac and it started first pull. Use it for about 47 hours with just stopping to refuel with no problems. Loud, but it performrd great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems like a great generator for the price Waited on line at home depot for 13 hours before the hurricane and purchased this as it was the only one that had arrived. Might have opted for a Briggs and Stratton or Generac but beggars can't be choosers a few hours before a major storm! Perhaps premature to rate but based upon features and price seems like a nice unit. Nothing to assemble - just add oil (says capacity is 1+quart but quart provided seemed to fill) and gas and started on first half pull! Seems a little loud but don't really care as it will be in shed when running. Comes with a splitter for the 220 line so can accommodate 4 + 4 (8 total)115 volt outlets - alot of capacity. Tested it briefly and it works! Hopefully will not need it but will update when I actually get to use it and get a feel for the capacity...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ran my house Unit worked right out of the box. Added oil and filled her up. I recently installed a generator ready load center and wired up an inlet box out in my shed. I havent needed to use this for any emergencies yet but I just tested it out on my house. I was able to run all of the following: Oil heat and hot water heater, 2 fridges, 1 freezer, lots in different rooms, computer, Tv, and lighting. This generator will work for a "whole house" as long as you dont have electric heat and/or electric hot water. So in my case I could easily run my entire house. I also dont think its too loud. I had it parked outside of my shed which is 50 feet away and you cant hear it from inside the house.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made with lots of power for the price. Much too loud. Bought this one because it was the only one in the store. I am pleased with the construction, set up, and ease of starting. The unit provides good flexibility with the outlet options including a 30A-240 outlet for connecting to large loads or a transfer switch. Sound level is a major problem. Not rated on the box but here listed at 82 dB. That is really loud. You can not hold a conversation without shouting anywhere near it. If you want to use this camping bring a 200 ft. cord. We need to turn it off at night in order for anyone in the neighborhood to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helped power my house for 3 days bought this at home depot during a 3 day power outage (6-25-2015 chester county) and at the store they had a few availiable . i wasnt sure about buying one so big i just wanted one to power my fridge but this is what they had in stock so i bought it and so happy i went with such a big one . was ready to go once at home came with oil , power cord .all i had to get was gas . i put oil, gas and started up first pull . ran my fridge ,tv ,fios box , few lights , and also my neighbors fridge , tv & dvd player and lights all with no problems . since then my home is now wired to run this generator through a TRANSFER SWITCH which i also bought at home depot (relience brand) . as for noise , it does have a muffler with spark arrester but i would compare the sound level it to a running lawn mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this machine love this generator it was so easy to set up. we lost power and realized that the little one we had just could not do what we wanted so my brother went to home depot and they substatuted it for one they didn't have and we got it for 419.00. great price. the first tank ran for 14 1/2 hours and we ran a light a heater frige sump pump. computer tv cable and phones. this was the best buy and i will be hooking it up to the whole house so i don't have to run extention cordes. everyone is griping about how loud it is but i never herd it. had it in the back yard. every generator is loud so don't let that stop you from buying a good machine. when you don't have power it does not matter.
