Question about Homelite Lr5000t Generators

Open Question

Hi, do you still have a manual for a Homelite LR5000T Generator? I just got one today from my wife's aunt and could really use a manual.

I just bought a used Homelite LR5000T Generator from my wife's aunt; it hasn't run in 10 years, and I would really like an owner's manual for it. I've never had a generator before, and could use some tips for this one. Thanks. Alan Wismer, Lake Odessa, Michigan

The problem when that happens is usually a loss of residual flashing the generator you can recharge the permanent magnets, and then the generator will work again.

Generator output plugs don`t work

If you don't see a reset then you may have to replace a diode or voltage rectifier inside your unit.

I have a homelite 720 generator but cant fingd the instruction manual and i need to know if the charger leads only charge a battery or can be used as jump leads i know this might sound stupid but i wo

I can't find any reference to a Homelite model 720 generator but most battery charging systems do not supply enough amps to run a car starter. Battery chargers usually work in the two (trickle) to ten amp range. Car starters need way more amps to have enough power to turn an engine over, depending on the size and number of cylinders in the motor. Some chargers have a switch with a 60 amp 'start' position to help the battery turn the motor over, but without that there is little chance the charger side of your generator will supply enough amps to help your battery.

I was just given my aunt's janome sewing machine

I would really suggest that you start with this website, there is so much really good general information on sewing, sewing machines, threading up, trouble shooting, using the right sized needle and quality thread and it is all free.

I have found a pdf file of the manual on line click on the link saying "RX18S instructions", it will take a while to load as its 17MB.

Please list your model number when posting and I might have found part number for you.

Go to service and support, find parts, parts locator, model # if you cannot find model number go to product line, homelite, then select generator, without model number you will have dozens of generators to look at.

Homelite 6000 Generator running rough, now won't start

Sounds like the engine is not getting enough fuel. Two possible problems:
1) I know this is a dumb question, but did you turn the fuel back on?
2) If the answer to question 1 is yes, then the small fuel filter inbetween the gas tank and carburetor probably has hardened. The inside of the fuel filter is a piece of foam and it is really common for the in line fuel filters to harden when no fuel is present and cause a clog in the fuel line. Try replacing the inline fuel filter and life should be good!
