    ON YOUR GENERATOR,the carburetor is what the air filter is connected to(this regulates the air/fuel mixture going into your engine)Q-2-(a diesel does not use a carburetor,it uses a injector pump.(it has lines to each cylinder for fuel with a separate intake for air(known as a throttle body)hope this helps munawwar329,thanx for using fix-ya!!!

Carb supplies gas to the engine to run.Diesel engines do not have carbs,they have injectors

Generator only operates on low idle

Moss likely a fuel problem if it has old fuel in it drain the tank and add fresh fuel or it has dirt in the carburettor remove the bowl from the bottom of the carby and see if it clean then turn the fuel tap on and see if the fuel is coming through if not check the fuel filter in the tap,if all of that is well and still not working you will have to remove the hole carburettor and blow it out with compressed air first screw the mixture in and count the number of turn then remove and clean, the mixture screw should be about 1 turn out, you also mite need to check the spark plug.

Auto idler is in on position, engine surges when running. Turn idler off engine dies

Hi Walt, it could be that the fuel may have been contaminated with water (possibly condensation) i would suggest cleaning the fuel tank, fuel lines and carburettor and see if that fixes it.

Why unit keeps shutting down after it starts.

Your question is general without specific details. Any one of many things will cause your generator engine to stop running.

Is this question about a Kipor KDE5000TA? If so, your generator is powered by a diesel engine. There are safety shut downs built into the generator to protect the generator head and engine. Do you have any fault codes showing on your control panel display screen? (Trouble codes P-01 through P-05 will be displayed if there's a detected fault)

If you have no fault codes, then you likely have a fuel problem. Do the obvious:
  1. Visually check the fuel level in your tank. DO NOT rely on your fuel gauge. It may be stuck or otherwise not working.
  2. If you have fuel, check your fuel filter. It may be clogged. If your fuel filter is good, you may have water contamination.
  3. Drain your tank and refill with fresh #2 diesel fuel. I use "Diesel 911" with a biocide to prevent water contamination and bacteria growth in my fuel.
  4. Make certain your fuel oil supply and return lines are clear, not leaking, and the fittings are tight.
I know I'm shotgunning, peppering the target. However, I don't have enough information to zero in on a specific area where the problem could be. Good luck!

Generator will not start, tried changing choke possitions and changed spark plug, nothing has worked.

Sometimes when generators won't start I find the following can do the trick.
  • Remove the spark plug
  • Pour about 5 ml (1 Teaspoonful) of fuel into the opening where you took the plug from
  • Dip the end of the plug in the fuel so the spark gap gets wet
  • Replace the plug and try starting it
The fuel you poured in should ignite and may be enough to get it running. You may need to repeat the procedure 2 to 3 times. Don't pour in too much fuel or it will flood.

If that fails, was the generator left away for a few months with fuel in the carburettor. If so it may have formed a gel in the jets. If this is the case and the above method doesn't get it going you'll need to take it to a mechanic and have the carburettor stripped down and the jets cleaned.

I spray some gas in the carboraitor.It runs for about 5 sec. and stops.There is gas in the tank.

Your Coleman power generator's carburettor is clogged. Your can tell that this is so, since
when you circumvented the carburettor (by spraying fuel), the engine worked.

Last time I fixed a clogged carb, I put it into a coffee can, hosed it down with carb cleaner spray (and some WD-40, which I had alot of at the time), and let it sit in cleaner fluid for 3 days.
It worked perfectly after that.
Failing the "soak it in cleaner" solution, the next step to getting your carb to work is to rebuild it, by purchasing a carburettor rebuild kit for your specific carburettor.

Next time, instead of spraying gas (this provides gasoline like a primer bulb would), you could also try spray "Starting Fluid" available at any car parts store - but gasoline works too. Anytime I debug a small engine, there's a can of spray starting fluid nearby.

Can't get home generator started. Don't believe it is putting out a spark. Just replaced the plug and still doesn't appear to spark.

The usual things that stop the motor from running are either spark or fuel problems. To test for spark,remove the spark plug, reconnect the plug wire to the plug and have the metal body of the plug rest on a metal part of the engine. If the ignition system is OK you should see a spark at the plug electrodes as the motir is turned over. If no spark then it is either the plug wire or the coil inside the magneto so you will have to take it to a repair shop. If there is spark then it is likely to be a fuel problem of either too much (flooded) or too little which could mean dirt in the fuel that has got into the carburettor and clogged the small passages inside the carburettor which would then mean a cleanout.

Low power

Hi ,
firstly i would do a full service on it , all filter and fluids , oil/coolant water,fuel filter(s) and air filters
pay attention to any water seperators , check all fuel line connectors and unions are tight and in good order ( drawing a small amount of air into the fuel system if often the cause of ''a lack of power '')
check your diesel as it absorbs moisture and can severley effect the running of an engine .
if this has no effect
get a rag /goggles and the right size open ended spanner and slacken each fuel injector nut whilst the engine is running , listen for the engine noise going down , if it dosent this means the injector is deffective ( might need replacing or cleaning ) do this to each injector in turn , be very careful as you do this , the diesel is at 200bar pressure and can injected you ( hence the rag )
a final one is the fuel lift pump may be deffective , they often partially work and starve the engine at maximum revs , depending on your engine this will be an electric one or driven directly from the engine block , just follow the fuel lines from your diesel tank ,.
hope this helps
