check the spark plug after a failed attempt to start. If dry, then no fuel is entering engine.
Did you leave old fuel in carb? if so, your carb probably is dirty: old gasoline deposits varnish, gum, and you will need to dissassemble carb and clean it.

SOURCE: Coleman6250 Generator PM0545007 - Won't start/run.

Most gasoline engines need three basic things to run: proper air/fuel mixture, sufficient compression, and a properly timed spark. Check the easiest, cheapest things first, then check the "Gee, I forgot to turn on the gas" kind of things next, then work your way onwards from there.

Compression can be guesstimated with the proverbial thumb-over-the-empty-spark-plug-hole routine as you turn it over casually to check compression. If it doesn't blow your thumb out of position, you could have a hole in the piston (overheating response) or a stuck or damaged intake or exhaust valve.

Check for fuel flow by carefully disconnecting the fuel line to the carburetor and letting some run into a tin can (no styrofoam coffee cups, please). It should dribble freely. If not, you have to back-track the line and find out where the blockage is.

Spark is one that sounds like you've already tested (spark plug out of the cylinder head, hooked up and laying on the metal engine as you turn it over?) so check timing. You will probably need a manual for this test, although a good estimate is that the plug should fire just a wee bit before Top Dead Center position of the piston. Like I said, a manual comes in handy here.

From what you've mentioned, though, I'd start trouble-shooting at the fuel flow part first.

Good luck,

GRB

try removing the air filter and try starting if it dirty or to oily , no vacuum is created to pull the fuel into the carb

Testimonial: "I removed the air filter,then put air filter back on,it started for 2 mintes.I shut it off, but then allot of gas just spewed out of the air filter?"

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:
http://theportablegenerators.org/manuals/ETQ/Generator-TG1200-manual.pdf

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,
Kelly

Seems my Poulan Chainsaw P3314 is flooding.


Ron, the excessive gas could be the result of continued start attempts with a weak spark or a bad plug or a carboned plug. If none of the carb adjustments have not been turned or twisted prior, I'd suggest obtaining a fresh spark plug. Make sure the gap is correct. Blow out the cylinder with compressed air to vent all the residual gas/oil within. Ground the new plug against the engine and pull the cord. You should observe a fairly bright spark at the plug. If no spark you could have a faulty coil/ignition module. If a bright spark is present, install the plug and give it full choke and attempt to start. It should attempt to start within a few pulls....when it does, go immediately to HALF-choke and pull again and it should start.

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.

11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire


If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.

sounds like the float is stuck, how long has it ben setting around? try some carburetor cleaner. spray the carburetor down. empty the fuel tank put fresh fuel with fuel treatment. you may have to remove the spark plug, pull starter string a couple of times to clear out cylinder make sure spark plug is dry put back in and try to start the generator.
