What type fuel does a 5250 porter cable generator take


From p.10 of the manual
"Check fuel level, fill as required. Make sure generator is turned off and has been allowed time to cool down. Use clean, fresh, regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline".

Will not start


That is either valve timing or a failed ignition stator. The stator will send the fire signal to the spark plug at the wrong time and hence the backfire.

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 and weight of oil do you use


Porter Cable recommends straight 30 weight synthetic oil for their engines. However, If you live in a colde climate or in a hot climate, the use of multi-viscosity oils is my recommendation. Straight 30 weight oil in my cold climate would not work. So, it really depends on where you live.
30/5 works well in a cold climate like mine.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

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 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
