SOURCE: 5500 watt generator won't start.

With starting fluid, it runs, so this means spark and compression and valves closing properly. You mention gas flow, so gasolene is getting to the carb. This would then leave the problem being in the carb if indeed fuel is present at the carb. If you take apart the carb right now, is there fuel in the bowel? Or, remove the bottom screw on the carb, does gas flow out? Does it flow continuously or does it quit? This will indicate if the float valve is indeed opening. The only thing if you have fuel in the bowel and no start, even with the choke closed, is that the main jet must be plugged. Had the unit been sitting for quite a while with gasolene in it? Gas can "varnish" after a few months and this can cause plugging of the jets and other passages. How old is the gas in the unit? Old gas won't burn in the engine and this can also be a problem. Drain the tank, and carb, put some new gas in the unit and try it. You might have to take the carb apart again and use some carb cleaner to blow the **** out of all the carb passages. This should get it going again. Now, most important, when you get it running again, you need to adjust the engine speed so that you do not burn out any electrical equipment. If you have access to a frequency meter, plug it into the 120 volt outlet on the generator and adjust the speed so that the frequency with no load is 62 - 63 hz. This will allow the generator to drop to 60 hz under load. The adjustment is a 5/16 nut, right side of the upper engine, facing you.

5500 watt generator will not run my 2hp air compressor


5500 watt generator will meet the 1491.4 watt requirement of the 2 hp compressor motor
given that 5500 watts generator is rated continuously at around 4500 watts and will handle spikes to the 5500 watts when electrical components start there should be plenty left
consider the possibility or a motor below full capacity, carby problem ( jets blocked , water, blocked air filter not getting full throttle from the governor lever, worn rings, type of fuel in use --E mix)

Service manual required


I can't find a free download on the internet, most are Owner's manuals or are not for the exact model you want - I don't know how similar similar models are. You might try the following:

http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/00X31Z376011.pdf (from Honda, EU7000is owner's)
Honda EU7000i Model Info Super Quiet 7000 Watt Inverter Generator Honda...

This is the shop manual for the EU6500is model ($44)
Honda EU6500is Generator Shop Manual
owner's for the EU6500is
http://www.freeproductmanual.com/honda-eu6500is-manual

Finally a link to the search results most of the were taken from
https://uk.search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A9mSs2tVBShVngQA_xZLBQx.;_ylc=X1MDMjExNDcxNzAwMwRfcgMyBGZyA2FsdGF2aXN0YQRncHJpZANyOTBfV1hQeVNvT0twcW5oS3NxWlFBBG5fcnNsdAMwBG5fc3VnZwM0BG9yaWdpbgN1ay5zZWFyY2gueWFob28uY29tBHBvcwMwBHBxc3RyAwRwcXN0cmwDBHFzdHJsAzMwBHF1ZXJ5A0hvbmRhIEVVNjUwMGlzQSBzZXJ2aWNlIG1hbnVhbAR0X3N0bXADMTQyODY4NjQ3NQ--?p=Honda+EU6500isA+service+manual&fr2=sb-top-uk.search&fr=altavista

You could try contacting Honda (relevant division) also; if they will provide the manual you want, it might be free

Had to tickle the throttle on my yamaha 3500 watt


You should have automatic or manual choke control. Try to find it and open it during start. After that you can close it if stable work is achieved.

Our onan generator ran out of gas. we refueled but the generator will not start. i gave it a shoot of starting fluid, the generator fired and run for a second, then died. could it be a cogged fuel filter?...


No, not the filter, you will need to try to prime the carb better then with starting fluid, pour some gasoline down the carb, you may have to do this a few times, but everything will fire back up again once you get the air out of the system

VALSI 5,500 WATT GENERATOR WILL NOT START


All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
