Now that I see your problem description it reminds me of my problem. Same thing. I think I got in touch with Tecumseh, the engine manufacturer, and ultimately found there was a problem in the fuel supply. It seems to me I poked a small hole in the carburetor or someplace where the fuel was to go thru. Making the hole bigger solved the problem. Tecumseh told me they had the problem with that engine. I wondered why they did not send out instructions to all buyers to poke the hole.
This was on a Powermate Ultra 2500, Model PMO422505.01

HI SCOTT,
I HAD SOMETHING LIKE THAT BUT MY PROBLEM WAS THE ENGINE WAS SURGING.
THE PROBLEM WAS SOMETHING WAS RESTRICTING THE FUEL FLOW.
TRY PULLING OFF YOUR CARB. BOWL AND WHERE THE BOLT SCREWS IN TO THE BOWL YOU WILL SEE A BRASS SCREW THAT SCREWS INTO IT USE A PAPER CLIP OR A TORCH TIP CLEANER OR WIRE TO PUT INTO THE HOLE. YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE YOUR AIR CLEANER FROM THE CARB IN ORDER TOCLEEN THAT.
HOPE THAT HELPS YOU.................

Engine dies when load is applied


to sort out you problem i would take the carburtor apart and give it a good clean especially the main jet i would also replace the spark plug just to rule that out it could be a weak mixture causing your problem as you increase the demand for power the throttle will open drawing in mre air & fuel if the fuelis limited due to dirt this could be the cause.
as a quick test run the compressor and close the choke (cold start device) as that will cause more fuel to air and see what happens it isnt guaranteed to work but might give an indication.

Wont start has spark , new fuel, new oil.


Is the spark plug black?
It won't run well with a carbonized plug.

Is the main jet in the carb plugged?
If the plug is dry after trying to start it.....your fuel is not getting into the engine and most likely a plugged carb jet..
Also.....Is the fuel switch working...is it in run position?

If the generator has sat for a while with fuel left in the carb/fuel tank.......the most common problem is a plugged varnished dirty carburetor in need of a good cleaning.
Always shut the fuel off and let the carb run dry (run until the engine stops)before storing.
Add fuel stabilizer to any remaining fuel or drain the tank before storing.

Wont stay running


the problems is in the carburetor, common problems when unit does not run often and rust get get build up. get some automotive carburetor cleaners and spray it heavy in the carb, don't worried about flooding it or damaging anything, it will dry out faster than gas. (use little gas if you need to) try to start it up and get it running with the carb cover off and continue to spray carb cleaner in the carb while the engine is running, do this couple of time and hope that would clear it out. if that don't work you will need to take it apart and clean it. you have small tiny object obstructing the carb flow. the unit doesn't have a fuel pump, it run on gravity feed, the carb are easily obstructed. hope that help a bit

Cranks fast but wont start


Hi, You did a good job of diagnosing your problem. Gas in bowl and dry plugs, starts with fluid, But, to quote you, "won't go through carb" . If you feel confident, you should disassemble and clean the carb, as that is going to be the problem. As a tip, if the genset is going to sit make sure to turn off the fuel flow to the engine and run till the engine dies. They do not like to sit any length of time with fuel in the carb. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

New ProwerMate Pro 6750 will not stay running


If all the above does not work, then take out the carb adjuster screw and inject some compressed air briefly. It sounds like a float is stuck, which happened often in the old Briggs&Stratton engines.
Basically, it is starting fine with a full float or full amount of gas, then that gas is running out and the unit starves out. So, you have a clogged fuel line-drain tank&blow out line-or the float mechanism is sticking. Sometimes the additives mentioned above will work, but a good blast of compressed air through the carb/fuel line has helped me many times, especially with an engine that has sat for any amount of time or that got some bad gas in it.
