    The generator is new. I bought new from ebay and I brought it to my country. I checked the valve, gas pump everything's good. And I also changed the new spark plug. I got easy to start but the idle low in the start (stall or missing) and the idle came to normal idle automatically after 2 or 3 minutes (the engine warm).

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

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.

Instuctions on how to start mcculloch generator 1800 w


I have one.. great little unit.. very reliable..
I am a wannabee diy guy.. so good luck
1 assuming sparkplug is good / in / /newish??
Fuel needs to be filled.. I suggest premium only (less residue if it sits for long.)
fill oil.. top up..
d/c electric plugs
then
togle ignition switch to on
turn fuel cap to on
turn fuel switch (sw) to on
move choke to start if engine is cold start.
pull starter cord ..
good luck
ps.. I have learned to run engine dry of fuel after use. turn off fuel (sw).. this empties carb.. You may have to pull starter cord a few times with next start to bring the fuel down..

Fg2000tc tried a 1000 watt jack hammer but overload alarm came on what to do


Your gen. is a 2000 wt max 1000wt running out put. Means it will start your jackhammer but will not maintain the wattage to run it long. You are using the max it has to put out. So let me try to explain - 2000 watt max output works like this - We will use a fan as an example. A fan sitting still and not turning takes more amperage/watts to start. that is called lock rotor amps. So lets say the fan is a 1000w to run. 2000w start the fan turning then it takes 1000w to keep it turning. Your gen. can start the fan but not keep it running it is using all it has to put out, now if that fan only uses say 750 w running watts you have some head room to keep it running with out things getting hot. Hope this is clear as mud.

McCulloch 5700, 11 HP Starts easy with 2 pulls and begins running fine. Then it start dying and back fires,revs up and down, back fires. Then will run normal for a few minutes and will start revving up...


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

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.

it sounds like the govener screw needs to be adjusted by turning it clockwise and then you may have to tweek the throttle screw. hopefully that will take care of it.
