SOURCE: gentron pro2 6000p has no spark

With small engines, ignition is magneto. Four things can cause a lack of spark: (1) Faulty plug - try a new plug; (2) Bad, shorting, or disconnected spark plug wire - check for high voltage from ignition coil; (3) Bad ignition coil - check for low voltage at the coil input wires; (4) Magneto failure - the pickup coils next to the flywheel may be shorted, loose, or disconnected, OR the magnets on the flywheel may have lost their field or come out. I would troubleshoot this problem by checking and eliminating each of these possibilities in the above order. If all of the first three check out good; I'd have a mechanic check the magneto because this requires at least partial disassembly of the motor.

Gentron 10,000 generator will not start.


Spray starting fluid into the engine air intake and see if that starts it, if that does then you have dried fuel clogging up the works.

Why porter cable h450is generator won't start


If it starts initially, then it has spark. most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

Gentron 10000w generator has a leaking carburator


Your carburetor float valve may be stuck open. You'll have to remove the carburetor, remove the sediment bowl at the bottom of the carburetor (where the float is), and check the float. Is it filled with gas? Replace the float if it is. If the float is dry inside, then remove the float and clean the needle valve & seat. (be careful to note how the float pin, linkage, spring, etc. are positioned so you properly reassemble. After cleaning & reassembling, turn the carburetor upside down & try blowing into the gas line connection on the carburetor. You shouldn't be able to blow air. Turn the carburetor right side up & repeat. If you can blow air into the carburetor's gas line connection, the float valve & seat are properly working. Reinstall the carburetor. You should be good to go.

Generator will crank but will not start


First check spark while cranking over( pull the plug wire hold by insulator about a 1/4 inch away from any ground, you should see a strong spark. then check to be sure the fuel is pumping from yhe carb., if no fuel try a short squirt into the carb intake. should fire up if you had spark.Its generally a good idea to put in a new plug and be sure to check the gap.

Fuel switch needs to be replaced does not shut off fuel intake


How did you stop it? Pull the spark plug wire?
There is a carburetor in there,somewhere.Pinch off the fuel line to or from the carb. I like needle nosed vice grips or a BIG hemostat.

Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!


You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

Yg2800i generator runs for about 5 minutes and then stalls


Put a new fuel filter on it and when it stalls take the fuel line off the carburetor to check if gas is getting to the carburetor. If it is remove the sparkplug put the wire on it and ground the nut of the plug on the engine block and pull the cord and check for spark between the sparkplug gap. If no spark you might have a faulty coil, when it gets hot it has no spark.
