SOURCE: Brand new Generator not working

Take it back where you bought it with the sales receipt. Just about everything has at least a one year warranty, Anything that's well built should last AT LEAST one or two years. As long as it wasn't submerged, abused or dumped off the tailgate of a truck they should make it right for you.

SOURCE: New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.

Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.

SOURCE: My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: honda eu 6500 gen overload indicator light will not shut off

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

Low oil sensor


I would let it cool completely and see if it starts again. There are no specific timers that say after detecting a low oil shutdown don't start for X amount of time. It is more than likely a choke setting as it is hot, and you may now have flooded it.

Kohler 14 RES won't start


You need a couple of things / options. The carb heater base, and an oil heater (srews in the drain hole, and possibly a battery blanket at that temp. Some OEM's offer an adhesive strip that you can also stick to the bottom of the alternator, that is also 120V and warms the generator windings to keep moisture out

Not sure what country you ar ein but in the USA/CA they will be a 120V accessory and as such need utility power at the generator

Onan 5500 marque gold turns over but, won't start. fault code is 32 but, batteries ok, air cleaner ok, fuel pumping, oil changed, won't start


Code 32 is a low cranking speed sense. You didn't mention a Spec # which would help. You say batteries are ok, but the generator is not getting enough cranking amps or voltage to maintain the control properly. Check, battery voltage, wiring, any in line isolation solenoids, check generator solenoid, also make sure there is no mechanical binding on the generator, a good way to do that is remove the spark plugs DISCONNECT THE BATTERY to prevent starting, underneath where the air intake is under the alternator is a plastic plug, remove that and you can put a socket I believe 3/4" up onto the alternator shaft and rotate the engine, if it tuns freely there is no binding, if you feel it is hard to move, check the drive train, belts, pulleys underneath (A lot of work, best to take to a dealer if it is mechanically bound)

1998 Ducati Monster 750 won't start. Ticks over ok, but won't "fire". New fuel in tank only two days ago, ran several trips since, just won't start now. Tried push-start, sounds like...


Hi, Mlyndon and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

I have a ford f350 duelly and it wont start but it will turn over i have jump started it and it started and now i have had it pluged in for 2 days and it still wont start plz help me figure it out


If its a diesel then you may need to get a spray can of ether starting fluid. Spray this directly into your air filter housing for approximatly 3-5 seconds. Try it once then try to start your truck. if it doesnt work then have someone else spray it in while you turn it over. However your problem maybe that you dont have enough charge in your batteries to completely turn your engine over to get full compression. in this case charge your batteries and try again.
