Question about McCulloch 13HP 338 Cc Portable Generator # FG6000MK

4 Answers

McCulloch generator stops after about a minute

Generator starts fine and runs fine for about a minute or so and then starts to die a couple times and then stops completely. Let it sit for a short time and same thing happens again. Took drain loose from carb and fuel flow seems to be OK. Loosened gas cap to make sure it wasn't a venting problem but that didn't help. Oil level is OK. Is there a way to bypass the low oil shutdown to see if it may be causing this?

Have Generator McCullough FG 6000 was running fine motor still running fine than NO power output, any suggestions ?? Can you get replacement parts and repair diagram off the interent ??

Found the problem to be in the low oil shutdown. Not sure if it is the electronic switch mounted on the outside of the engine or the sensor inside the engine. Have ordered parts but still waiting as they have been on back order for over a month.

Had a similar problem with my 800E for the camper. The first thing I did was move the wife away from it. Little thing hates her. Haven't figured that one out yet. Now your big boy probably doesn't have the sort of choke my little guy does, but sure enough if I didn't have all the same running troubles as you. I just had to tweek the choke a bit and he runs like a little champ. Something to think about anyways.

It sounds like it is starving for fuel. You probably need to rebuild the carb.

11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire


If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.

The engine runs fine and the generator produces electricity but shortly after start up the generator head gets hot and starts to smoke. What could be the problem or solution? thanks jeff Joyce


If you really mean the "generator head", which I understand as the outer bearing cover of the generator, your problem may be a bad contact or worn out brush-ring assembly, or a bearing problem (not very much believable).

McCulloch Generator model FG6000mk 11hp run good until I turn on generator then stop running do you think the generator bad and can it be rebuild ?


I did not understand how you turn on generator, as it is always turned on.
If you use the ON/OFF switch it is stopping the prime mover.
If you reset the AC breaker without load, and it stops - it means that you have short circuit after the breaker. Check the output receptacles.

McCulloch 5700, 11 HP Starts easy with 2 pulls and begins running fine. Then it start dying and back fires,revs up and down, back fires. Then will run normal for a few minutes and will start revving up...


Sounds like you may have a wire shorting out. Check all ign wires and make sure one hasnt rubbed through. Maybe take off your front cover and make sure something isnt shorting out your coil contacts. Hope this helps

Sounds like your choke is not closed correctly when you first start the genset. Remove the air filter and look at the throttle plate. It should be closed with a hair line gap. With your finger you should feel very little play on the throttle plate. As you open the choke, you should be able to open it all the way once the engine has reached a hotter temperature. If the engine is still cold and your opening the choke all the way, it will try to die out.
