SOURCE: gas in the oil on my honda generator

Your needle/float is stuck, which will allow fuel to flow though the intake...past the piston..and into the crankcase. If has been awhile since you used it, most likely the gas has gummed up the insides of the carb. Otherwise, you may have had something get into the fuel bowl that is keeping the needle from closing. Best way to solve is to remove and clean the carb. Replace fuel filter if needed also.
Hope this helps

First make sure that you have a spark; remove the spark plug and position it so that the threads are touching the engine frame. Pull the cord and check the plug for spark. If you have spark, put the plug back in.

Get some starting fluid and spray it into the air intake of the carbuerator. Try to start the engine. If it starts and then stops, that indicates that you have a fuel delivery problem. Clean the fuel filter.

Is this a new device for you or have you used it in the past?

Generic comments follow:

In my experience, there is a switch that ya turn off to start the device and allow it to warm up. Following this short period, ya turn this switch to the on position and a governor takes over - slows the engine to an idle until it sees a load at which time it runs the engine speed up. In the off position, the generator part of this combo is turned off.

In my experience, the protection devices on small generators are auto reset.

Let me know if this works for you.

thanks

Why honda generator wont start eu30


First, see if there is fire to the spark plug. If not, then that is the problem. If there is fire, try a shot of starting fluid in the carb. If it starts initially, then most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

I hav a 1995 honda cr 125 it has spark and is getting fuel and wont start but back fires the odd kick, ive replaced ign control, cdi box, rotor and generator, coil and plug


check compression, the valves may need adjustment. also make sure that the carb is clean and that there are no air leaks or you will have trouble. From my experience, 80% of old bike troubles come from the carbs being dirty/clogged. Pull the carb off, disassemble any plastic/rubber parts and BOIL in lemon juice for 20 minutes then rinse and blow out the passages. Reinstall and give it a try. If the valves are out of whack then the piston wont compress the air/fuel mixture and the spark will not ignite the mixture or will ignite it erratically thus getting an occasional backfire. Check valve lash and retry.

I have an em3500 honda generator which starts stalling out after 1/2 hour to an hour like it is running out of gas and then shuts off. I can restart it and it will run for 1/2 hour to hour and do the same...


Recheck for spark when it stalls. If you have lost spark I would say a heat damaged coil.

You should also drain and inspect the carb bowl. You may have low fuel flow which limits full throttle operation to 30 minutes or less. When it dies you are just refilling the bowl for the next run.

Good luck and be careful!

Wont start has spark , new fuel, new oil.


Is the spark plug black?
It won't run well with a carbonized plug.

Is the main jet in the carb plugged?
If the plug is dry after trying to start it.....your fuel is not getting into the engine and most likely a plugged carb jet..
Also.....Is the fuel switch working...is it in run position?

If the generator has sat for a while with fuel left in the carb/fuel tank.......the most common problem is a plugged varnished dirty carburetor in need of a good cleaning.
Always shut the fuel off and let the carb run dry (run until the engine stops)before storing.
Add fuel stabilizer to any remaining fuel or drain the tank before storing.

My honda gx160 generator keeps cutting out after 2 mins


Sounds like fuel flow is restricted.
Is the vent cap on the gas tank clear?
Pull the fuel hose off at the carb and let run into a container from the tank......is fuel flow good while filling a cup or two worth of fuel?
If not check filter at fuel switch or at hose connection at tank for restriction.
It takes about 2 minutes to use up fuel in the carb with engine running.
Sure sounds like a fuel problem.
