Question about Electrical Supplies
I have a Coleman 1850 generator that would not run unless I used an engine starter. Electrical seems to be fine. Have rebuild carb and cleaned entire fuel system. Generator runs only in choke position. It will not rev up even after manually turning the idle control. Engine sat for 3 years without running. New fuel is in the gas tank now and the engine appears to getting plenty of gas. What are my next options? Thanks, mark
If it runs only in choke it sounds like its lean (choke reduces airflow and gets back to a mixture it will run on.....just). It could just be a small bit of crud in the carby jet. You cleaned the fuel system.....did you install or replace a fuel filter? sometimes cleaning the tank and lines stirs up stuff that needs to be filtered.....even though you may had cleaned and rinsed out a lot.

A call to Elliott Small Engine solved my problem - Oil Guard. I had checked the oil and it was just a little low but seemed well within the normal range. I was told to add more, bringing it just over the Full mark. It seems that the low oil protection system is very sensitive and shuts down the engine even when the oil is withing 1/8" of the mark. I added about 2-3 oz of oil and no more problems

try to clean out the carb first with auto parts carb cleaner, then you may need to buy a totally new carb for the unit, as this company will NOT sell parts for these carbs due to the carb setting is sealed & has to stay at a set level for voltage output and setting
