Why does troybilt generator engine keeps shutting off when throttle is moved from choke to run position?


Give it a shot of starting fluid. If it runs initially, then most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

Generator wont start up unless i spray starter fluid into it


This sounds like a dirty carbureator. Just bad enough that it won't start cold.

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.

What's the best choke setting for starting a cold generator


Full choke to start, open choke partially immediately the engine starts to where the motor runs smoothly, continue opening as soon as you can while keeping the engine running smoothly. Be sure to open fully before leaving the unit, running it with the choke partially on can cause a rich fuel condition which tends to wash the oil off the cylinder walls and it also dilutes the oil with gasoline.

I need to know the procedure in starting a Coleman Generator 5500/6875 11.0 hp Tecumseh. I just purchased it and the previous owner lost the manual for instructions. Please help me. Dolly


I'm not familiar with this particular generator but starting most of these is pretty much the same.

Turn all switches to the generator OFF locate the Carbuerator and put the choke on if it has a small bulb pump it a few times, now here is a trick I use I buy a can of starter fluid and spray a quick spray close to the air intake or air filter. This should work.
