Honda generator My Honda EU2000i generation starts on the first pull with the choke on but as soon as you turn the choke off it shuts down. Also after starting if I leave the choke on, the generator will also shut down after a few seconds. Any ideas on the problem? Thanks in advance.

The running on choke is caused by a fuel restriction. Check the fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor.Change the fuel filter if it has one. If its good, then the restriction is in the carburetor. The generator is shutting down due to the low rpm coming from the engine. A carburetor rebuild may need to be done.

SOURCE: honda em2500 starts, runs 1 minute, quits and will not restart

If the oil level is low it will do this, but I also know this to happen when the oil is very cold (thick) an won't fow back own o the crankcase where the oil sensor is. The slow return results in a low oil level. My solution is to start it, when it dies wait a couple of minutes and retry... after a few starts, the oil will warm up, thus flowing back down faster and it then will run. Another option is to use a thinner oil ie;5-30w.

Make sure it isn't trying to start the HVAC with a locked compressor (IE it just turned off and is now trying to cycle on again) If it is shutting down due to low freq there is too much load for the HP the engine can deliver. That will cause too much current to flow and trip the breaker. Also be aware it takes 6 times current to start HVAC than to run it. How old is the generator? it may have normal engine wear and can no longer generate HP, Also when was it tunes up

The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Screeching sound-Honda eu2000i


Sounds like a bearing has failed or something has gotten inside the generator or engine area where it spins and is now rubbing against it. There is a bearing at the far end of the generator from the motor and it is most likely to be where the noise is coming from. Best to repair it before it seizes and wears out parts you don't want to have to try to find!

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

Eu2000i lopes while idling. If i slide the choke


This is NOT uncommon when no load is on the units.

The "gain" of the govenor is designed for maintaining speed under load and will "hunt" a bit without a load on the unit.
