Its absolutely the gas. Get all the old gas you can out of it and fill with fresh gas along with the recommended amount of conditioner such as Seafoam.

Honda generator


The running on choke is caused by a fuel restriction. Check the fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor.Change the fuel filter if it has one. If its good, then the restriction is in the carburetor. The generator is shutting down due to the low rpm coming from the engine. A carburetor rebuild may need to be done.

My cub cadet model 12A-18M7010 will not start. It has an automatic choke. No primer. I've changed the gas, checked the plug, cleaned the carbuerator. What could it be?


Also check the air filter. Some times if the paper filter is wet or clogged it will choke out the machine by not allowing air in to the ignition chamber.

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

Mower starts and runs but has no power acts like its flooding it burns a lot more gas can barley pull it self


Sounds like maybe the choke is stuck closed. If you remove the air filter the choke is the first butterfly valve you can see. The throttle looks similar but is a inch or so deeper into the carb, and you can't see that unless the choke is open. Try removing the air filter and starting the mower. It might run just a little better without the air filter since it will get a bit more air, but if the choke is stuck it still won't run right. But you will be able to see if that's the problem right off. If it runs great without the air filter, and the choke is not stuck, then the problem is a clogged air filter and you need to replace it. Good luck, Al K

I own a 5000 watt generators the problem is generator starts with choke on however as soon as i start closing the choke generator shuts down, any ideal on how to correct


Get a can of carburetor cleaner. Drain the gas. Mix small quantity of fresh gas & carb cleaner about 50/50. Run a little through (it might not start, but crank it enough to get some solution through the carb.) If it runs, that's great, run about half of your solution then turn it off for an hour. Then run the rest through. If it won't start, then after the hour add a bit of fresh gas to make the remaining solution about 90% gas and run this through By the way, running the carb cleaner through the air intake will not fix this problem, because the gumming of gas is in the fuel line, float valve, needle valve - not in the air stream. Running carb cleaner through the air intake is useful if the throttle is sticking.. Good luck, Vote if you found this helpful, Al K

How to start a gas generator (should the choke be in or out, to the right or the left before starting


Most Generac generators have a lever for the choke that pulls out. So if the generator is being started for the first use or cold you should choke when starting . Let it run for 30-45 sec. then push it in . Once the engine has been run or warm you dont need to choke every time when starting .
