If this is one of the big "taco cart" portables you need to check that the vent on the gas cap is open when you're running the engine. In the center of the gage on the gas cap is a little knurled knob, turn it counter clockwise (lefty loosey), about a half turn or so and run the generator.
If that doesn't solve your problem add to it here, otherwise please give me a rating I'm trying to build a little credibility here and could use the help.

Is this an RV generator?

If you have to really choke an LP engine but it runs more or less normally once started you need to troubleshoot the demand regulator and the fuel supply lines (look for air leaks). I'd also check the fuel inlet pressure before the demand regulator.

You say there is compression .What was the p.s.i. on the gauge. If below 100 p.s.i.. May have bad ring, valve out of adjustment or bad head gasket. Is there spark and what does spark plug look good, is gap ok . Is the fuel tuned on and kill switch on. Will need more info to help out more.

SOURCE: McCulloch fg6000mk: generator motor runs, no power.

You need to trace out the power wires the come out of the genset. They will end up on a breaker. With a volt meter measure both sides of the breaker. If one side has voltage and the other side doesn't, then your breaker is opened. Press the breaker in closed to see if it actually closes. If it don't then you will need a breaker. However, if no voltage is being produced, it is possible that the voltage regulator let go.

Your control board is faulty. Try to power up the ingnition coil as well as your fuel pump. If this does not get the engine running then you have major engine problems.

Guardian propane generator hard starting. At 20 F backfires and won`t start. Goes to overcrank.


It needs a cold weather option, one that heats the oil and also the carb so the LP gas does not freeze the carb. A common problem

It back fires


If it backfires, check for manifold leaks, fuel mixture is too lean, timing is off, make sure it isn't spitting liquid into the cylinders and the LP is the right pressure, and the vapour coil is working

My generac generator propane runs good for first min. when cold but when it warms up runs up and down with on rpms.


If it has an "no load" idle feature turn that off and then see if it still has this problem.
Otherwise, Is it outside? The LP regulator may be sticking.
