SOURCE: Regards to ETQ TG1200 Generator Generator

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

I read spce sheets for this generator and several of the spec sheets say it requires 0.16 L of oil. If generator has a low oil level sensor that will kill the spark if the oil level is low.

Here is a copy of the Owners manual:

I went through the manual reading every detail about the generator and could find nothing about an low oil level sensor.

The wiring diagram on page 27 only shows the ignition switch, with a Brown wire to the ignition controller and then an orange wire to the high voltage coil in the circuit.

The parts diagram throws a wrench n the game as it mentions an ignitor... (item 2)

I see the switch, (item 4 page 24)
The magneto (Item 16 page 22)
The High voltage coil / set (Item 28 page 22) as the only 3 things in the circuit.

Disconnect the brown wire at the ignition controller and switch the run switch to ON. Check for a ground (none allowed)

Then check the Orange wire at the ignition controller to the high voltage set / coil. You may read resistance of the coil but is should NOT read ZERO ohms. IF you read ZERO you need to locate the short.

Inspect the wiring connections especially around the ignition controller. For a unit with 1 hr of run time it has to be something simple like a disconnected terminal unless rodents chewed on the wiring.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I found that the switch wires under the gas tanks are pretty loose in their plugs going to the magneta.. Check all of your wireing under the gas tank for connection..I just put mine the shop and they told me that would run on ether but not on gas..

What is the float level setting on a etq tg1200 generator

Most floats on most small engine carbs are set level.
Make sure you are gentle if you have to adjust it. Some newer models have no adjustment and the plastic breaks.
Don't ask me how I know.
Check for trash in the needle valve/seat while you are at it and get the carb as clean as you can before you reassemble.

Further to my question about a weak spark on my etq 1200 ,would one of these be the problem, magneto,igniter ir capacitor?

A lot small ignition spark appears to be weak when they are not.

A couple things to check. make sure your spark arrestor is clean and your ignition timing is correct; otherwords, that the flywheel key is not sheared.

I have a etq 1200 generator that runs but doesnt have ac. what could be the problem?

Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped
Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers
Verify that the engine is running at full RPM
If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

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.

Xt 500 has weak spark(flywheel magneto with ignition points).poor when cold and now won't even start.fuel fine.isolated ignition(magneto,coil and points).changed coil.points fine,resistance...

It sounds to me that you have done most all of what is needed. Just take some fine sandpaper to the magnets in the flywheel. After sanding, wipe it clean, then spray it with carb cleaner to remove any possible residue. Now give the magnets a spray coating of clear polyurethane coating. The flywheel will never rust again. Replace the source coil and install a new spark plug. A plug that is carboned up can lessen spark voltage. The last item is the battery. A weak one can rob power. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
