SOURCE: The MOTOR on my Wen Power Pro model 5500 runs

The brushes need to be filed smooth or replaced. 15 minute job, remove 2 bolts on the generator cover ( side opposite the pull start ). Remove 2 more bolts holding a black plastic thing about 4 inches long on the left. Behing that piece, there is 1 bolt holding in the brushes ( red and white wire attached ). Remove the brushes and if they're not smooth, file down and reconnect everything. I was done in 15 minutes in the middle of Maine woods thanks to my Leatherman.

Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator

ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

Why does troybilt generator engine keeps shutting off when throttle is moved from choke to run position?

Give it a shot of starting fluid. If it runs initially, then most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

I have a Onan Microquiet 4000 in my Motorhome. It sat for a while and then I was unable to start it. I took off the carb and thoroughly cleaned it. The generator fired right up after that, it runs great...

Sounds like the float is out of adjustment, it's not keeping the bowl filled.If the float is not at correct height or the bowl was not placed back in the correct position it could show these symptoms , some bowls have a small indent on them and that recess should clear the float for proper movement of float. Or check to make sure that you have no water in fuel tank. Good Luck...
