Question about Honda Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

Gates air compressor with a honda motor, electric start, with oil alert.

Ignition switch was remotely mounted, wiring was a mess. Rewired unit to schematics in manual, starts and runs, but won't shut off. I know I'm missing a ground somewhere, and the switch for the oil alert is not hooked up. Where do I go from here??

if you have no spark ensure no wire is connected to the oil pressure switch or low oil alert switch both are mounted to side of crankcase if so disconnect be sure to check oil filled at the top hash mark and no more approximately 2 quarts.crank engine if still no spark possible chance it may need ignition coil packs and this model may be covered under warranty take it to the nearest honda dealer or call with model and serial located on the base of crankcase next to drain plug.

Dewalt /Emglo 10 gal ,150 psi with 5.5 Honda GSX just shuts off sometimes ,some days it works fine ,some days it wouldnt work at all ,looks like something with gas ,it would shut off after pumpin tank...


I have an Emglo compressor with a 8 HP Honda motor. The motor has a low oil level shut-off switch in the crankcase. My switch failed intermittently and the motor would run sometimes and not others. There is a wire going directly into the motor crankcase. On my unit, the switch is normally open and when there is enough oil in the motor, it closes to allow the engine to run. If you can't start the motor, unplug the wire that goes into the engine from the connector. Then stick a wire into that connector and hold it to metal on the engine & try to start the motor. If that switch is the culprit, it should now start.
Be advised that running the motor without the switch in the circuit would allow the motor to be run with no oil in it.

How can I shut my Honda eu1000i off from inside the cabin?


You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.

I have a honda gx160 5.5 generator will not start with the, i believe oil sensor plugged into the turn off switch oil level ok will i need to change the sensor also is this a big job.


i have never bothered to change onebecause you need to strip the motor,that is not realy such a big job if you have done a few ,but you just need to check the oil when you fill the gas tank , thatis simple enough . the oil alert is realy a gimmick for the dummies, it only takes 10 secs. to chech the oil manually

Air condition problem


What type of thermostat do you have? If the fan is not coming on and neither is the compressor, then is more than likely a problem with the thermostat of control units of the Air Conditioners. The fan will come whether the compressor does or not if the thermostat and control unit are working correctly. Check for twelve volt at the control unit of the air conditioner ceiling unit. (Red Wire, should be labeled)

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
