Take off the fuel filler cap. On some this is the fuel tank vent.

If the vent is blocked the petrol flow will be suspended by the vacuum.

Runs well for a shot tims then stalls at high arpiems itnis not the carbs or fuel pumps could it be the coil


Not the carbs, not the fuel pumps, maybe the fuel delivery volumes to the carbs by the fuel pumps. A restriction can cause the engine to suck the carburators fuel bowls dry if not enough volume of fuel is delivered. Do a fuel volume test

Why does my honda ex500 generator not keep running?


If it runs at all, then it is not the spark, so it must be fuel.
Flush the tank and put in new clean fuel. If it still does not run right, then you probably need to rebuild the carbureator.

Probably the fuel float in the carbureator is stuck (or most likely the needle valve connected to the float).

WHEN IT IS PUT UNDER A LOAD IT WILL NOT STAY RUNNING UNLESS YOU LEAVE THE CHOKE ON


Possible that the engine is not getting sufficient fuel for running and so the choke action is needed. You need to check if the oil switch is cutting off the power, - if so replace oil.
Secondly the fuel settings might need a check up. You might need to clean/reset the plugs/spark gaps and also overhaul the carburator to solve this issue.

It will start on full choke and run for about 5 seconds and shuts off. I changed oil because it was black. It did same thing a year ago and shop said the fuel line was blocked? I ran it for about 25...


first if its a honda,is it a gas/oil mix as the gas/oil mix plugs up quicker than a 4 cycle engine ?even 4 cycle engines that get bad gas i.e. water in the gas will plug up the carburator from rust, white rust(from water minerals) corrosion,dirt,etc.,when its running and just as it dies out,pull out the choke and see if it picks back up in r.p.m.'s,if it does,then you know its lacking fuel from starvation from plugged fuel lines/carb to keep running,then you need to re-build the carburator or you could first try a can of carb cleaner while its running down into the carburators intake,but this is a tell-tale sign of a bad/dirty carb,try this,with a small wrench,pull off the carburarors "sediment bowl" located just ubder the carbs body and carefully unscrew the brass nut and remove this bowl(careful to NOT lose the gasket) and see how moch water/dirt,etc., is in the bowl if theres water it will look like droplets in the gas in there,if you have this contamination you need to clean out both the gas tank and carburator and all fuel lines leading to and from these to the engine

Honda eb3800x will not start. I started and ran it in June 2010 with no problem. Will not start today 9/2/2010. Checked oil, checked spark plug, drained all gas and put new gas. Carb getting fuel....


the worst thing for generator and compressors are to sit up. when you do sit them up put stabil in the gas. run it and then run the gas out of the carburator. now, make sure the gas in the tank is good and has no water or trash. check the fuel line that it is in good conditon and not plugged. pull the carberator and clean varnish out and clean jets. soak it over nite in varsol or parts cleaner. check to see if you have a low oil shut off. oil level must be correct. check your exhaust to make sure it isn't plugged. some have a little screen that get coated with carbon and won't let it exhaust.( fuel in, spark, exhaust out)
