Sounds like your choke is not closed correctly when you first start the genset. Remove the air filter and look at the throttle plate. It should be closed with a hair line gap. With your finger you should feel very little play on the throttle plate. As you open the choke, you should be able to open it all the way once the engine has reached a hotter temperature. If the engine is still cold and your opening the choke all the way, it will try to die out.

What would make a McCulloch FG6000MK 11 HP generator start and idle fine but not able to rev-up and generate power.


Have to an ultrasinic cleaning of the carburetor and see if that will clean up the problem,

Bad on parts though most are NLA. but a carburetor from a Honda 11hp horizonal might work on this Chinese Honda cloned engine.

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.

4000 watt buffalo tools generator: Engine Starts, but after a few minutes it cuts out and stops running. No appliances plugged in, drained gas(it did sit for 6 months), oil is full, Plug is good.


Idle speed jet or passage and/or high speed jet/passage is clogged. Remove the carb and inspect and clean thoroughly, then re-install. Set idle and high spped screws approx 1 turn and tune to run smooth from there.

Sounds like you may have a wire shorting out. Check all ign wires and make sure one hasnt rubbed through. Maybe take off your front cover and make sure something isnt shorting out your coil contacts. Hope this helps

McCULLOCH FG2000Tc engine starts but idle


Hi,
Check the valve clearances with a feeler guage. Over time the valve lash adjustment vibrates a little looser than we want and the engine gets hard to start, runs rough, etc. After the engine warms up the heat makes the valve tappets expand enough to make the engine smooth out.

Regards,
Carl
