Hi,
I wrote an answer that was for powermate generators, but it should help you too. I think you have a brushless generator, and rather than the plastic endbell I mention in the post you have a metal pie plate held on by 2 phillips head screws (yours is easier to get to)

Rate me if this helps, ask directly if it isn't enough,
Carl

SOURCE: My porter cable generator 3000 wt will not stay running once star

Hi,
If this generator has been stored for any length of time with fuel in the carb you probably have a plugged main jet in the carb. As joboo1 says there are a few other things that could cause this behavior, but most often I see dirty carbs, water in the fuel, and plugged/dirty air filters. Get a flashlight and look into the fuel tank thru the filler hole, if you see anything floating in there you've got water in the fuel. Look at the ari cleaner, oil and fuel on the element indicate a dirty carb. Of course check the oil level. Lastly, take the bowl off the bottom of the carb (shut off the fuel valve first), if you see debris in there the carb needs a good cleaning.

Regards,
Carl

Throttle on generator question


The idle control switch allows the generator to go into idle when there is no demand form the appliances connected. This saves gas and increases the life of the generator. Damage can occur for some appliances like a refrigerator/freezer because the voltage and frequency are not prepared for the load resulting in a low voltage bad startup that will damage the appliance. Suggest that you leave the idle control switch off while any motor/electronic devices are connected.

The throttle control is likely a choke function for starting. These generators are designed for only one running speed to produce the necessary 60 cycles per second and voltage.
The following link is to a Canadian web site that later in the detail report describes the concern of idle control. In addition it provides good insight to the operation and use of portable generators

Hope this helps?

What type of oil do i take for a porter cable 5250 watt electric generator?


Your generators take ordinary 10W30 motor oil.
We use these things on the job.
Don't turn engine upside down or on its side to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor

My porter cabe 5500 only runs on choke


Because it running lean, too much air in the air/fuel mixture. I can only give a suggestion and it's a rule of thumb I follow regarding basic internal combustion tuning. With this condition I locate the fuel adjustment screw, usually located after the throttle plate (butterfly) which controls the amount of fuel into the mixture.

I would set it up to run richer then open the choke until it idles effortlessly, without any assistance. When it's too rich, the engine's revolution would be to high and probably cause it to smoke a little and I back off the adjuster. The best level is that it shouldn't stumble and cut off. Once this is optimal, hard starting and unassisted idling should be eliminated.

Very hard to start


make sure choke is closed all the way.
filters are clean [if any]
or maybe to much choke, try with throttle wide open.
check plug to see if it is wet or not.
if dry it will need choke, if wet it will need throttle wide open.once starts, slow revs.
if plug is dry try a little shot of gas in cyl.
