Question about Makita 2,800 Watt 6 Hp Portable Power Generator #G2800L
Generator will not run except when choke is set on full even after it is warmed up. Please help.
Check your tank for contaminants (water, trash, dirt, monsters, etc), as well as the balance of the fuel system. You may also need to remove the carburetor and clean it out, particularly if the generator has sat for more than a month with fuel in it (most do, including mine) and now has deposits. The only thing that the choke does is make the mixture rich by cutting off the air.
And just for grins, look at the spark arrestor screen on the muffler. This can be related and problematic as well.
