This saw is an Echo model ev 550. Get a can of power tune or sea foam engine cleaner and decarbonize the combustion chamber. Also spray some in fuel tank and carb. Replace spark plug. Then the saw will run like new! You can probably download a manual from Echo. Thanks.

I don't know where you can get a service manual. You've described the symptoms of a dirty clogged fuel filter down inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel pickup.

Powermate 5000 dies after a couple of hours


You will need to contact Powermate directly (see below), and give themthe CORRECT model # info that you have there on that Genset.

Unfortunately what you posted above doesn't help out at all as there isNO model # for reference. Certain models are no longer available asthey have been discontinued and only by contacting Powermate directlywill you get the proper Operators Manual.

There should be no charge for this and most likely it will be a PDF download sent by their service dept.

The model # should be found either on the engine decal plate or else on the generator head assy or it's power panel.

Please post me a reply as to finding this solution being the bestresolve to your missing Operators Manual problem by following thecompany references & links below. Also please rate mytroubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,

Kevin

1975, 7.5 Kohler marine genset, runs only with the reset depresed


Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...

A few things to take a look at:

1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.

2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.

3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.

4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.

5) Choke not working as it should

6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.
