SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: no electricity from generator

If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

SOURCE: what type of oil do

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

THE VOLTAGE COMING FROM THE GENERATOR IS NOT RIGHT. iT WILL BLOW A LIGHT BULB INSTANTLY


Connect a voltage meter to the 115v plug and measure voltage. If too high, adjust governor spring tension to compensate. Your engine developes max horsepower at about 3600 rpm. At this speed the generator should be producting 115v at 60 cycles. Good holidays
