Why wouldn't my em5000sx honda generator not run my rheem gas heater.


  • The Auto Throttle System switch needs to be in the off position.
  • If the generator has not been used for awhile than the fuel is stale and the generator may be slow in responding to the load change. Replace fuel with fresh fuel.
  • Attach a second load such as a 100 watt light bulb standard bulb with a tungsten filament. Observe the light as the heater cycles. If the light goes very dim than the generator is slow responding to a load change. Generator carburetor needs to be cleaned, tune-up. Run fresh fuel under load to see if carburetor will clean itself.
  • Try adding choke to see if richer mixture reduces voltage dip. Check manual for mixture adjustments.

I have gas in oil. Whats the problem ?


How old is the unit? Gas in the oil indicates sticking or broken piston rings. If it has sat for a long period, best thing to do is spray some sea foam into the cylinder, run it under heavy load for 30 min and hope it seats. If it still does it, chances are your ring is craked. But most often they stick allowing blow by. Also make sure plugs are clean, and not fuel fouled.

Sounds like your fuel pump starting to die. It is not getting enough gas under heavy acceleration which is 100% fuel pump slowly dying. At start up it might not be building up enough fuel pressure to feed the system but the shot of ether and engine cranking helps pressure the system just enough for the fuel pump to trickle the gas and run the engine at low rpms.

My Onan 2500 Microlite LP starts when cold, but soon quits until it gets cold again. I think that the fuel inlet valve needs and adjustment. How is this done?


I would not adjust it, I would say the unit has sat and carb is gummed up. Flush with sea foam and run for as long as you can under heavy load

Generator starts than shuts down on under voltage


The problem is related to the engine. When a load is put on the generator, the engine's throttle will want to open to maintain RPMs. If your carburetor is misadjusted or gummed/varnished, when the throttle opens, you will get a fuel starvation and the engine will die. If the generator is used regularly and hasn't sat for a while, first check to make sure the spark plug is good since you don't want to make a carb. adjustment using a worn plug. After you adjust the carb. manuallly flick the throttle to ensure that the engine doesn't 'stutter' or die out. If it does, increase the gas in the air/gas mixture and if that doesn't solve it, remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor.

When you put a load on generator it powers up and down and tries to cut off.


sounds like you are trying to put too much of a load on your generator. I have a 3500w generator and when I hooked it up to my 120v (not sure how many HP) well pump when the pump would try to cut on the generator would bog down and even die. took off the load and started right up. will run other things just not heavy loads. maybe you need a bigger generator for what you are trying to power.
