I have a Briggs & Stratton 5500 watts generator that I hardly pull the rope for start, begins stuck then its loosen again and again gets too hard to pull, any suggestions please help


If the unit is older it could have heavy carbon in the cylinder heads, it could be a ring sticking and binding, do a compression test. Compression is high or mechanical binding.

I am not sure where you live, the problem is a common problem. Most generator manufacturers now offer a cold start or cold weather option, this is an oil warmer, but more importantly a carb heater. I would contact a Briggs CERTIFIED generator dealer and ask them if there is that option available

A number of things can cause this. A sit worked before !
Basically:

Engines get older and can't hold HP which causes the rpm to slow and voltage dip, this causes a current increase and trips.

Breakers also get weaker especially if they trip a few times
HVAC and compressors pull approx 6 times the current to start as they do to run, once they have run a while, they build up higher head pressures which cause harder starting and more current draw, hence the breaker tripping.

It's hard to pin point which is the actual issue, but these all contribute.

That's interesting that you bypassed the fuel pump after noticing that the carburetor was below the tank, not needing a fuel pump to start the engine.

Maybe they put a fuel pump in to ensure that the float bowl valve is not the only thing preventing gas from overflowing into the carburetor when stored for a long period of time.

I would put the pump in if that's the way they originally designed the fuel supply for the engine, just to be safe.

Good luck on this repair.

Try removing the spark plug and rotating the engine by hand.
It could be just a little corroded from shipment over the ocean.
But once you have it loosened up and the oil circulated, it should start much easier.
Make sure it has oil in it, because sometimes they drain the oil before shipping.
You could also have someone else try the starter rope. A new engine can be hard to start.

With pump removed engines runs fine. When new pump is installed it is very hard to pull with water flowing but will not start. Engine was just tuned up late year.


Chances are that your new pump is generating good pressure. Because of this, the engine is trying to turn over against the pressurized system. Try pulling the handle on your wand when pull starting the engine to see if this eliminates your problem.

My propane generator engine has apark and gas


For a quick test.

Check engine oil.

Remove wire from low oil sensor and see if it starts every time.

If that works change oil and replace low oil sensor.

Hope this tip helps to solve your problem.
