    Maybe not the what you are looking for but, was the new battery fully charged before installation? A weak battery in the EU3000 will makes the sounds you have described. I let my battery unattended for several months in my EU3000, when I went to start it, it made the noises same as you describe, I was nervous there for a minute.

I have a 5 year old EU300is that would not start with or without the battery. I went through all the usual such as gas, plug, oil, etc. The battery showed 12 volts, however, when tested further it would not hold a load. I bought a new American made battery and now the unit runs fine.

Honda eu3000is runs fine with pull cord, but when you use the elec start the starter motor turns but will not engage.

Probably the Bendix needs lube. This is the spiral that the pinion gear runs on.

Remove the starter and inspect to insure the pinion gear is in good shape and the bendix is free to move. also verify that the solenoid throws the pinion out to engage.

You can bench test the starter to verify operation.

Also check condition of the ring gear via the starter mounting hole.

Broken pull cord install instructions

Hi there .
The only way to get to the starter on a EU3000IS is from the front of the machine .
You have to remove the plastic around the control panel , remove the control panel and the inverter and you be able to see the starter on the right side . To remove it is only 3 10mm bolts holding it in place . Make sure when you put it back is on the right place and pull the cord gently so the starter can sit .
Hope this help

Electric start will not work

You should remove the battery and charge it up outside the machine then take it to your local auto parts store where they will load test it for free. It must be fully charged to test. Most of the time those small batteries are dead due to the heat produced in the machine. These batteries only run about $30 or less usually.

Note: BEFORE CHARGING if the battery is not sealed ensure the battery water level is good (no exposed plates, usually the water is about 1 1/2" below the top of the holes). Use pure bottled water if you need to add water.

Honda EU3000is generator will not start with electric starter.

I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.
