With your model number I could see if it has a low oil safety switch I have seen them go bad (check your oil level )
With all wires un plugged from the coil you should have spark
if not coil is bad .
Use another spark plug to test for spark, ground the side of the plug by holding it against some-ting metal on the engine , spark
plug wire hooked to the plug. leave a spark plug in the cylinder
head so gas wont fly out and hit the test spark plug catching fire (seen it done).
Good luck

Generator back firing from inlet manafold


Your symptoms are from running lean. Foam air filters put debris in carb jets. Check all the carb passageways and jets. Always start with a new plug.

My 5700 watt 11 HP McCullough generator wont start. I'm getting good gas to the plug but no spark.


The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.

It started but when i pluged in ti it it quit. has not started since. checked plug and it was loaded with gas. install new plug and tried. check spark and it appears eratic. pulled air filter off and it is...


sounds like the float is stuck, how long has it ben setting around? try some carburetor cleaner. spray the carburetor down. empty the fuel tank put fresh fuel with fuel treatment. you may have to remove the spark plug, pull starter string a couple of times to clear out cylinder make sure spark plug is dry put back in and try to start the generator.

Gen. wont start been stored since 03 bought new used twice


As for checking for a spark, remove the plug from the engine, plug in to lead, then rest it somewhere convenient, with the threaded end to ground. (ie touching the chassis or frame)
The low oil indicator may be on the side of the engine, but I'm not certain.
If you discover that the spark is good, it could be a timing problem.
If there is no spark, it's probably the magneto.
I hope that helps.

You probably need to do a tune up. Change the spark plug, oil, air filter, and you may also need to add new fuel.

Just won't start


check the spark plug after a failed attempt to start. If dry, then no fuel is entering engine.
Did you leave old fuel in carb? if so, your carb probably is dirty: old gasoline deposits varnish, gum, and you will need to dissassemble carb and clean it.
