SOURCE: My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: Generator won't start. Seems to

have you had the generator stored with fuel in the carburettor since its last use if so the fuel goes bad and blocks up the main jet, remove the float bowl and clean out all the residue you can clean out the main jet with a suitable piece of wire

Always troubleshoot with new sparkplug. Remove the oil sending unit connection from the coil. The coil should work without any wires connected. Usually the only connections are oil sending unit that will short to ground when low oil condition and other wire must be kill wire to on/off switch. Use carb cleaner spray directly into the carb with air filter removed and choke off as fuel supply. Just a short spray and another short spray after a couple of pulls. If engine wants to start you will need to keep spraying cleaner for engine to continue to run. If engine wants to run, replace fuel with couple gallons of premium fuel to get it going. Hotter fuel will help if the compression is low. Good luck

It's either not getting enough fuel, or the govenor is not working. When the engine is running, watch the throttle linkage between the carburetor and engine, looks like a bent wire. When you throw a load on it, it should move to give the engine more power, if it dont, try moving it by hand.
If that appears to be working ok, check the fuel line from the tank to the carb for good gas flow.
You can also remove the float bowl on the bottom of the carb, it's a round bowl on the bottom of the carb with a bolt in the middle of it...clean it out and check the float. The float looks like a little catamaran, make sure it is moving freely up and down. That is about all you can do without removing and cleaning the jets in the carb.

Good luck, & i hope this helps.

I foolishly left the choke on my 1 day old Powerstroke 6000 generator in the start position all day and now it won't start... What do I do?


Mr. Worley you could never be more right!!! I had a similar problem (no start to my PowerStroke Generator 6000W). Added some Stabil, shook it around a bit and waited. Shook again and it started (after several pulls) runs like new. The only thing I noticed was the lever where you would slide to START has to be slid halfway between START and RUN, but please ask me if I care......NOT! as long as it runs! Side note: Oil, Spark Plug, Air Filter changed prior to adding Stabil (cause it can't hurt), I'm not that carefree!! Thanks Mr. Worley!!

Onan 5500 marque gold turns over but, won't start. fault code is 32 but, batteries ok, air cleaner ok, fuel pumping, oil changed, won't start


Code 32 is a low cranking speed sense. You didn't mention a Spec # which would help. You say batteries are ok, but the generator is not getting enough cranking amps or voltage to maintain the control properly. Check, battery voltage, wiring, any in line isolation solenoids, check generator solenoid, also make sure there is no mechanical binding on the generator, a good way to do that is remove the spark plugs DISCONNECT THE BATTERY to prevent starting, underneath where the air intake is under the alternator is a plastic plug, remove that and you can put a socket I believe 3/4" up onto the alternator shaft and rotate the engine, if it tuns freely there is no binding, if you feel it is hard to move, check the drive train, belts, pulleys underneath (A lot of work, best to take to a dealer if it is mechanically bound)

1993 grand voyager won't start


anti theft malfunction. seriously put your ear near the filler neck uncapped and have someone turn the key. is there s whining. then that rules out a bad fuel pump> try carefully priming the injectors with fuel and then crank. standby with a garden hose in the even it backfires and pukes out the fuel. remove a plug wire and put any plug in the boot rest it against the valve cover have someone cranlk and looks for spark. 2 main causes for no start lack of fuel, lack of spark
