SOURCE: Motor will not run with the choke off & rpm's go up and down

sounds like your fuel has gone stale, drain tank and put in fresh fuel, with no additive, better to drain the tank after use than use additives

SOURCE: Have a VALSI 5500 watt generator that works fine

We had problums with this one also. If you absolutely cant find a tank repair it.

A motorcycle shop in your area has no doubt had plenty failed tanks to repair. and then have it plastic coated on the inside.

The problems stem from the use of fuel with ethanol it attracts watter and dosed not work well in a gen set that spends lots of time setting.

Begin using fuel with a fuel stabiliser and keep it full, Air also has water in it.

I have an onsn 5500 marquis gold gas generator. We ran it last month for a week during the day. Got home and it ran for a couple of seconds and won't start. Changed the oil and gas tank is full


Check the controller board for overheated components and open traces on it. Make sure the fuel filter isn't clogged and the fuel pump is running.

My ust gg2300 gas generator installed new carb runs 3to 4 minutes then dies


Maybe when the ignition coil heats up it will not produce any spark to the spark plug. Run the engine until it stalls and remove the spark plug and put the plug wire back on and ground the plug to the engine. See if you get spark at the electrode of the spark plug when you have some one pull the starter rope with the switch on the run position.

What faults can a change over switch caurse between the generator and the load


One consideration is how many circuits and how much total wattage is being used when the generator is in service.
"Gas Powered Generator GG2300 2300 Watts Surge 2000 Watts Continuous Output 10 Hours of Run Time at Full ."
This is a relatively small generator with 2000 watts output, so the problem may be that the generator can not handle the wattage demand. You can get a pretty good estimate of the wattage demand by adding up the wattage of everything , all lights, appliances, etc that's being powered by the generator. If the total wattage is greater than the output of the generator (2000 watts) then the generator is too small.

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!!

5500 gas generator


Recently purchased UST 5500 from Pep Boys. Had same problem during engine break in period. Found that the carb will not draw gas when generator is on level surface. Mine has the wheel kit and it causes the fuel inlet to be at highest point in tank. If you block up the wheels and change the angle of the tank it will improve fuel line pickup. Also check gap on plug, mine was way off from factory. Also check the routing of the spark plug wire and make sure it is not getting forced off the plug by tension from breather hose. Once the engine starts make sure to push choke back in, it will run for a good while choked but it will eventually shut off if you don't push choke back in. Hope this helps. Took me awhile to discover the fuel feed issue.
