Answer: 
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!

Answer: 
Gas can be drained from the unit using an automatic style siphon. Please be sure to drain the gas into a suitable container. To ensure that the unit is completely drained, you can also run the unit until the engine runs dry; fresh fuel can be added thereafter. If you have any other product-related inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 800-445-1805.

Answer: 
The sparkplug is located near the engine. You can see the hard boot on the end of the spark plug if you look right above where the letters "OHV" are stamped. It is black and is directly behind the letter "V" in this stamp. If you have problems locating it, you can call our Technical Assistance number at (800)445-1805. They will be able to help you.

Answer: 
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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by generator We purchased the generator just in case the power went out and it has not. however my husband did not have any problems firing up the generator and it did put our minds at ease during the winter months March 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really good generator Easy to operate, fully assembled; easy to move. Provides sufficient wattage February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great generator BUT has surging issues this is a follow up review of the generator i purchased 06-25-15 .. everything works well except recently during a power outage the generator was running everything ok but the generator was revving up and down the whole time i didn't notice anything till my neighbor mentioned it ..i contacted powermate and they informed me that they are now GENERAC!!!! .,..but anyways i told them the issue of how the motor would rev up and down in a rhythmic tune and since it was still under the 2 YEAR CONSUMER WARRANTY that i would have to call a authorized repair center . in turn i did call and after about 4 days after i dropped off the generator i got a call back to inform me that the CARBURETOR became faulty and would be replace free of charge . its still an excellent generator and i did ask the mechanic if it had a generac motor and components and he did re assure me that its a GENERAC with a powermate label in which generac bought powermate few years ago ...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Unit Not a bad unit. Does not put out a lot of power but was enough to run my freezer and refrigerator. Truied to hook up a TV and lamp but too much drain and it kept shutting down. Would say excellent unit for the handiman who would use it for tools, etc. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT Generator, my highest recommendation! Like others have said... this seems like a no-name brand and I would have favored a "name you know" but now that we've used it in an emergency situation I have nothing but GREAT things to say about it. The one and only negative is the noise level. Yes, it's loud. I wear hearing protectors when I'm working around it. But the benefit of that loud muffler is that you're not wasting gasoline keeping it quiet. Really quiet mufflers waste energy by converting sound to heat and putting a lot of backpressure on the engine. Result: You need a bigger engine to get the same amount of output current, and you burn more gasoline too. This unit sips gasoline at about half a gallon per hour, and that's with a pretty heavy load on it. We were running our gas furnace (1800 watts for the blower), two refrigerators, various lights, various electronics, an air compressor, circular saws and other tools - and it ran like a champ on about half a gallon an hour! Can't complain about that. 100% recommended. I only wish I could have purchased a bigger one. If 6KW is big enough for your needs, buy this unit and never look back. November 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great for me Bought this generator before a winter storm in late 2013, didn't end up loosing power but was glad to have it for my new home. Followed the storage instructions and put the generator away for the summer. Pulled it back out this fall to test it out and found the recoil spring for the starter was shattered. I figured I would be stuck paying to fix this problem, but I contacted the manufacturer of the engine (not Powermate, but they gave me the contact info) and they sent the replacement part out free of charge. Vary happy with the customer service from this company. December 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!!! October 29, 2012
