Why does my new honda generator keep shutting down when connected to BERG system gas tank??

New Honda gen (less than 50 hours) powers down after about 9 hours continuous running. After troubleshooting w/ manual, found spark plug wire was loose, reattached it, then started right up no problem. However, only ran for 15 minutes, then shut down again. Restarted a 3rd time and ran for another 15 minutes, then shut down again. Restarted 4th time after disconnecting BERG system gas tank and replacing original Honda gas cap, ha s been running good for 20 minutes now.

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

SOURCE: Coleman Powermate 10 HP Generator shuts down after a few minutes.

I have an HM100 on a 5500 watt gen with the same problem. This motor calls for a J17 spark plug, but I found using a J19 (hotter) plug solved the problem. I think the J17 doesn't get hot enough for a complete combustion burn so it act like fuel starvation thus resulting in the black sooty and wet plug.

SOURCE: Honda eb3800x will not start.

the worst thing for generator and compressors are to sit up. when you do sit them up put stabil in the gas. run it and then run the gas out of the carburator. now, make sure the gas in the tank is good and has no water or trash. check the fuel line that it is in good conditon and not plugged. pull the carberator and clean varnish out and clean jets. soak it over nite in varsol or parts cleaner. check to see if you have a low oil shut off. oil level must be correct. check your exhaust to make sure it isn't plugged. some have a little screen that get coated with carbon and won't let it exhaust.( fuel in, spark, exhaust out)

SOURCE: Honeywell generator HW2000i Bought it cheap and

I would test the coil by removing it from the circuit, and attaching a properly gapped spark plug to the secondary, then apply and un-apply 12 volts to the primary. If you get a good strong spark on the spark plug tip each time you apply or remove the 12V, then you know that the coil is OK. This doesn't give you a measurement, but you don't know what the voltage is supposed to be anyway.
You might also try measuring the resistance across the primary and across the secondary and compare these numbers to a known good coil (anything similar should be in the same ballpark). Make sure to do that with the coil removed from any other connections and short the terminals together to remove any residual charge before you try to measure the resistance.
I hope this helps, good luck Al K

Make sure all the linkages and springs are hooked up on the throttle system and where they pivit is clean. Try moving the linkage by hand gently to make sure there is no sticking and litely oil where the linkages connect. If everything is working properly your internal governor has to be replaced.

EM 3500 Will start, then stalls after 30 minutes, starts again and continues to staff after 5 to 10 minutes. Oil is fine.


With regrets, I do not have any personal experience with generator troubleshooting. However, I have been informed by some people that have good experience with them that a generator needs to be run for a couple of hours every month to keep the system in proper order. Should a generator sit idle for ten months, the fuel can actually "shellac" inside the carburetor and lines. This will then travel to areas that will gum up - thus the necessity to drain the tank and carburetor completely.
Here is their advice:

Your service person(s) may not be aware of the time the unit sits idle, and if they are aware - then they are not giving you straight facts (in my opinion). I would suggest contacting Honda customer service directly, and explain this situation to them - they will probably be more then happy to have a technician assist you properly. Contact the 'customer relations' number, and they will direct you from there. Here is the link:

Recheck for spark when it stalls. If you have lost spark I would say a heat damaged coil.

You should also drain and inspect the carb bowl. You may have low fuel flow which limits full throttle operation to 30 minutes or less. When it dies you are just refilling the bowl for the next run.

Good luck and be careful!

Honda GX160 runs fine for 5 minutes then dies like out of fuel.


I would look for the fuel filter. Blow it our. I know you have a new tank of gas, but you might want to empty it out and make sure the clean and put in new. Even with Stabil in the gas you might just have to much condensation in the tank

My honda gx160 generator keeps cutting out after 2 mins


Sounds like fuel flow is restricted.
Is the vent cap on the gas tank clear?
Pull the fuel hose off at the carb and let run into a container from the tank......is fuel flow good while filling a cup or two worth of fuel?
If not check filter at fuel switch or at hose connection at tank for restriction.
It takes about 2 minutes to use up fuel in the carb with engine running.
Sure sounds like a fuel problem.

My trace inverter SW2512 will only allow pass through power.


First problem is caused by the new generator producing too high a frequency... 65 Hertz is above the inverter limit. Adjust the governor down to 60 or 61 Hertz.
Breaker tripping may be due to excessive current draw from the Honda. Check the max AC input menu on the inverter. It might have been set lower to avoid overloading the original generator but if DC power was turned off at any time while you were changing generators, the inverter would have returned to it's default settings which may exceed the Honda's capacity.
