I have a Craftsman Snow Blower with a Briggs & Stratton Engine. I had the same problem. I searched online and read a little bit about this run and stop problem. One solution was to put something over a piece of metal that separates the hot engine part from the other part of the other side of the engine. I used a piece of heat resistant cloth from Lowes in the plumping area where the torches are. It fit and worked. Engine keeps running. I ran it for over an hour last spring prior to storing it.

SOURCE: stops and starts

Hi there,
Most home standby generators are setup to run once a week so as to keep the engine lubed up and the generator windings dry. So if yours is comming on once a week at about the same time and running for something like 15 minutes, that's what is going on.
On the other hand, if your generator is starting and the switch is transferring somewhat randomly, you could have a problem with the neutral connection in your system, the power could really be going out and coming back on, and/or the control board in your generator could be broken.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: I have a Generac portable generator 5000 watts, won't start!

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

SOURCE: Generator with Briggs & Stratton,no gas is getting in carburetor

The needle valve may be stuck which would not let gas into the carb. I don;t think rebuild kits are too expensive. Pull the carb and take it to a lawnmower repair shop and they should have the parts. Before that though pull the bowl and make sure it has gas in it. If no then remove the fuel line and make sure gas flows from it. If no then could be the fuel shutoff valve is not operating properly or junk in the gas tank is obstructing the line.

I have a Briggs & Stratton 5500 watts generator that I hardly pull the rope for start, begins stuck then its loosen again and again gets too hard to pull, any suggestions please help


If the unit is older it could have heavy carbon in the cylinder heads, it could be a ring sticking and binding, do a compression test. Compression is high or mechanical binding.

It sounds like the mains sense wire is disconected from the control panel or the run wire is not being cut by the aux contact on the transfer switch.

GENERATOR WILL NOT MAKE POWER AT PLUGS ONLY MAKES 23 AMPS


Your manual says only plug 20Amp loads into each 120 receptical. See manual at: http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=fequxHX-nfBhU7y

that would be 4 recepticals tmes 20 = 80 Amps'

80 Amps times 120 V = 9,600 Watts This means that you cannot hook up all 4 outlets at the same time as that would overload the generator all you can hook up would be 2 outlets of up to max of 23 Amps

The manual restricts you to each load no more than 20 amps because some devices such as drills, water pumps exceed their running load upon start up, and would exceed the 20 Amps momentarily, thus 23 amps.

The maximum power load of the generator is 5000 watts and 20 amps at each outlet.

You certainly are within the useful range.

Volts time Amps = Watts
