If there is a spark at the plugs ignition is fine, spraying starter in the intake should allow it to at least fire?? even if you had a carb / fuel issue. I would recommend a compression test and better still a leakdown test to determine if you have weak compression

SOURCE: when I start my generator

OK, you have a hard to find info on model. My first thought is that your choke is still on.
Does it have a manually activated choke? If so you know what to do, after she kicks, turn it off.
If it is one of the new Auto-choke units you may need to find the choke linkage and disengage
it that way. I have asked for a manual for your from UTS. We will see what they send, or dont!
As with all engines, if left in storage for long periods of time, use fuel stabilizer and try and start
the engine every 30 days and let it run for 10-15 minutes just to warm up and keep everything moving.

My ust gg2300 gas generator installed new carb runs 3to 4 minutes then dies


Maybe when the ignition coil heats up it will not produce any spark to the spark plug. Run the engine until it stalls and remove the spark plug and put the plug wire back on and ground the plug to the engine. See if you get spark at the electrode of the spark plug when you have some one pull the starter rope with the switch on the run position.

Mower wont start


you will have to check a few things to diagnose it:

1) check the spark plug. check it for spark with a spark tester (best way) or by holding it against the engine metal somewhere and give a pull to see if you see a spark. If no spark go to #3 else go to #2.

2) if you have spark, you need to see if it turns over. get some starting fluid and just give it a quick spray in the intake (air filter usually) to the carburator. try starting it fairly quickly before the spray evaporates. If the engine turns over, then you have a carburator, fuel or fuel tank problem.

3) if you have no spark, replace the spark plug. if you still have no spark likely you need a new starter coil.

Remember you could have a combination of both of these types of problems.

Wont start


its either the fuel, spark plugs, or not enough air to complete the combustion cycle. Check the air filter to ascertain its not dirty. Check spark plug connections to ascertain there's a current from distributor cap to spark plugs when the starter motor turns. Spray starting fluid for half second before turning engine, and don't give throttle until engine starts, then increase throttle to 2,000 RPM. Once a month, pour a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to keep the injectors clear of debris buildup on the injectors' tips.

I have a new batiere in my 1991 vino 50cc tow stroke, And the starter wont work and it wont kick start even with starter fliod. Anything that I can check or replace?


Check fuses. Get a new spark plug then check for spark by hooking up the plug wire then hold the metal side of the plug against the cylinder. Have a friend kick the engine over while you look for spark. Remove the carb, then remove the float bowl from the bottom of the carb. Use spray carb cleaner to clean the carb. How old is the gas? Flush the tank and fill with fresh fuel if old gas is present. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My 5700 watt 11 HP McCullough generator wont start. I'm getting good gas to the plug but no spark.


The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.
