Carburator stavers for gas and dies

Posted by on

1 Answer

Learned this from home depot triage repair during hurricane gustaf. the primary jet for the carburetor is through the bolt that holds the carburetor bowl on . when you take the bowl take a .030 diameter wire and push upward through the threaded hole in the carburetor body which will clean the jet, most likely this will cure the problem. Home depot was doing the repair on the parking lot in about 15 minutes per machine.

Steelcraft generator 3300 watt Gas tank shut off


The floater of the carburator is bad(Needle). its leaking gas at the carburator and the gas is coming inside the engine at piston intake valves.
Replace carburator needle that stops the intake of gas at the Carburator.

Starts with ether then dies. I've cleaned the carburator and changed the gas.


Make sure that fuel flows freely from the tank to the carburetor. There should be a petcock (shut off valve) that has a screen on it (inside the tank), which also can become plugged with sediment. Work backwards from the carb, checking also the fuel supply line, back to the tank.

My 4 year old Craftsman 10.0 HP Genter OHV 5600 Watt 8600 Surge Power generator starts and runs good in the choke position, however when you try to take it from choke to run, it dies. Will it do any damage...


Not that i am aware of, however, I suspect that as soon as you load it up it will die again as the load will call for greater speed, and too much fuel from the choke position will cause it to die again.

What I suspect is that your carburator is clogged up at the jets and is not metering the air fuel mxture properly. You may have to disassemble the carburator and clean it. Since the government has mandated that gasoline contain 10% alcohol, it has become a night mare for small engines that are not used very often. The alcohol is very hydroscopic (retains water) and during the off use period, the alcohol evaporates and leaves the water behind to mix with gunk and clog the needle valves.

Try removing the old gasoline. Refill the machine with fresh gasoline and add some "SeaFoam" (an additive) or any other brand additive that will help disolve the built up gunk in the carburator. Remove the air cleaner and try spraying a carburator cleaner down in the air intake while the machine is running, this way the air passages may clear while the new gasoline may dislodge the built up gunk. Note: The carb cleaner will stall the engine.

It is probably wise to run the gas tank dry before storage and only fill when the machine will be used. Stabil is an additive for storage, and it did it's job before the alcohol edict. I am not sure that Stabil will allow long time storage. (more than 3 months) SeaFoam can be purchased at WalMart, stabil is on the shelf of most small engine sales rooms such as Sears.

It will start on full choke and run for about 5 seconds and shuts off. I changed oil because it was black. It did same thing a year ago and shop said the fuel line was blocked? I ran it for about 25...


first if its a honda,is it a gas/oil mix as the gas/oil mix plugs up quicker than a 4 cycle engine ?even 4 cycle engines that get bad gas i.e. water in the gas will plug up the carburator from rust, white rust(from water minerals) corrosion,dirt,etc.,when its running and just as it dies out,pull out the choke and see if it picks back up in r.p.m.'s,if it does,then you know its lacking fuel from starvation from plugged fuel lines/carb to keep running,then you need to re-build the carburator or you could first try a can of carb cleaner while its running down into the carburators intake,but this is a tell-tale sign of a bad/dirty carb,try this,with a small wrench,pull off the carburarors "sediment bowl" located just ubder the carbs body and carefully unscrew the brass nut and remove this bowl(careful to NOT lose the gasket) and see how moch water/dirt,etc., is in the bowl if theres water it will look like droplets in the gas in there,if you have this contamination you need to clean out both the gas tank and carburator and all fuel lines leading to and from these to the engine

The carb. has a nut holding the bowl on.Remove this nut and you'll notice a hole in in it that goes from side to side.You'll also notice one through the center that connects to the other.Make sure these holes are clean.Use a small pin..etc.Chances are it will stay running when you assemble the carb again.

Gas flows from cutoff valve to carburator hose connection but does not flow into carburator. What is blocking the flow?


On the top of the carburator there is a needle valve, closed by the float lever. 
If the carburator chamber is full with gas, the valve is closed and no more gas can enter the chamber.

If the chamber is empty and no gas flows inside, the valve may be stuck in closed position. Cleaning or some sharp (but not very hard) knoks on chamber cover may help.

Some times the float gets broken and falls down. This is a bigger damage, because it may lead to carburator overflow.

My Kohler Confidant IV generator starts and runs great for about 30 seconds and then dies,, starts right back up and does same thing, what is up with that


Kohler generators feed the generated voltage back into the control circuit board to tell it to keep the fuel pump (electric) runing and the ignition on. IF there is no voltage generated (bad brushes or?) then the symptom you describe will occur. The motor runs fine, but it isn't generating electricity.

Engine dies


Your carburator is gummed up !
Take the float bowl on the bottom of the carb and spray the main fuel jet out with cleaner, do this to the idle needle valve also. If that don't work pull the carb & take apart & soak overnight in parts cleaner & blow out all ports & orfices with compressed air.
Next time you store your generator with gas in it , use a fuel stabilizer !
Good luck !
