Hey there - I just bought mine and I had the same problem and I JUST fixed it! Here was my problem...perhaps it is the same. The two bottom plugs didn't work...the top two worked fine. What I did was unsrew the gas tank and propped it up with a 2x4 in order to give me more room. Then I unscrewed the black electric box that is behind the outlets. There are 5 wires that connect to the generator. Black, Gray, Blue, Green and RED. I noticed the RED wire (upper right) was not seated correctly and then when I seated it ... everything worked great. Soooo....I got a very small screw driver and scrapped the inside of the "connector" which had this microscopic piece of plastic preventing the wire to fit into the connector snugly. I screwed everything back on and it is working wonderfully. Let me know if this helps or if I can clarify anything or you. Brian

I'm looking for a REAL manual, either SHOP or SERVICE manual,
every where i look all i find is owners/operators manuals, which in my opinon are usless.
i'm a tech working on ATV's PWC's snowmobiles and the factory SERVICE manuals are worth their weight in gold.
However i cant seem to find any manuals like that for "small engines"
its EXTREAMLY Frustrating.

make sure oil level is correct and viscosity. check governor arm for binding if loose and floppy internal mechanical damage. If you have the electronic governor actuator on your model then need to check for battery voltage on it, if present actuator bad, if not control board

Craftsman 5600 watt generator won't stay on and white smoke pours out when started.

try running it with nothing hooked up if it runs fine, then the power draw is to much for it that would cause it to hunt !!!

Just up graded from a homelite 4400 to a craftsman 5600 generator 5600 does not have enough output as did the 4400 why

Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't. Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.
Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.
By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total resistive output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.
For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.
You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

Preventive maintenance craftsman 5600 generator

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
