If the pull start works, but the electric start doesn't try the following. Either give the battery on the generator a full charge, and if after a full charge it doesn't start, get a new battery.

    Thanks Leigh. I'll give it a shot but it seems the electric start turns over the engine at a decent rate so I'm assuming the battery's OK. Is there any kind of extra wiring or a spark advancer associated with the electric start verses the pull start?.

I have a 17k generac generator when it auto comes on the motor runs rough but when manually turned on it will run fine.


Could be the load you have on it is to much for when it does it it self .when you do it do you turn power off then start it and then putt the power back on .then it would run easy every time .could be your back up battery for it is to small .is it on a transfer switch like it should be when it starts it self .

    When i start the generac 15000 it starts fine but once a load is put on it it will die aS SOON AS THE LOAD STARTS IT JUST QUITS


    Check the governor and throttle for easy movement. When the load increases, the governor should advance the throttle to keep the speed up.

    I have a Briggs and Stratton home stand by generator 7000 it starts in manual but wont start in auto engine just cranks but wont start


    make sure gas valve is open, and run switch is ON. I'm not a fan of B&S engines. I have a Generac generator with NO problems.Pull start the unit and let run for 5 mins. Turn off. Now try the electric start.If it does not start, you have an elctical problem when using starter. Make sure battery is fully charged before starting. Hope it helps.

    Make sure the gas is fresh. Also, take off the carb bowl and look for signs of gumming. If there is gooey stuff in the bowl, then the carb needs to be cleaned.

    Need a sigma 6500e assembly diagram


    I just purchased a Sigma 6500E generator, there was no instruction manual with it. Did get in stalled, but couldn't find out where to connect the battery cable, also there was nothing about the engine at all. Does the battery get charged when the generator is running ?
    I would hope that information is available for this unit. thank you
