Preventive maintenance craftsman 5600 generator

What should I do when storing my craftsman 5600 ac generator. I have run all of the gas out of it by allowing the unit to exhaust its gas supply. Someone said I was supposed to drain the carb. but that would be a hard thing to so.

Do I need to drain the carb? If so, how do you do that?

Thanks for your support.

There should be a little bowl on the bottom of the carb if so take the bowl off and a gas can & funnel it should drain everything out the reason for draining all the gas out is if you don't most of the time it will start coroding the parts & when you go to use it again it wont run because the float is stuck or corosion in carb hope that helps e-mail me let me know thanks wade

The unit starts and runs but does not put out any electric . it is a craftsman 5600.is there a fuse or reley


Most generators do not have any fuse in them, but they have "diodes" and "capasitors". When any of these go bad there will be on output from the generator even if it is running.You will need to open up generator to locate these components.

16" gas craftsman chainsaw needs tune up


being a 2 stoke there isn't much to tune up. the MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IN A 2 STROKE IS GAS AND OIL MIXTURE,too much oil will foul plug no big deal. replace plug. too little oil in gas will wash the crome lining in the cylinder off and you won't have the compression need to burn the gas any more. once you get that straight crank the saw and run it wide open, it should be quick to react to the trigger, that is no stumbling until it finally turns up. if it don't have a small screw driver handy and turn down the screw for the run mixture until it runs as fast as it can. also let idle. it should run on idle as long as you don't turn switch off. if it loads up and quits turn in idle screw until it does idle right . that's about it. also always make sure chain on bar isn't sagging too much when not running. a loose chanin will cause uneven wear on bar and make a crooked cut.keep chain sharp. they dull quick.NEVER leave gas in tank for long periods of time. after each use drain tank and start until motor runs itself dry.
