SOURCE: auto idle on a reddy rgh11000 ie will not idle down

This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

SOURCE: Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run

Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Check the idle control rod Is it bent or hanging up on something?

The battery charging is also a load. If the battery is not well charged or old it may need about 60 - 120 W to charge, which is not "Idle".

hi there
pauly46 here

sounds like you will need to remove carby and give a good clean and soak for a while
to remove to green gum / varnish causes blockage of passageways and fuel needle valves to stick and remain open / or closed as well as making it run funny if it runs and flood as you mention

note do not soak any longer than 20 to 30 mins in a carb type cleaner solution as these can attack
non metallic parts and runin them , use compressed air to clean passageways and jets

blow some brake cleaner through them to , if the unit still floods after this , replace the fuel needle valve and seat

here is web site for parts list and parts ordering on line

What is the common cause of not starting of makita generator g5500r


My guess and the most common complaint on fixya -
the gas was left in the engine from the last use and turned to gunk.
Drain the old gas. Clean the carb.
If it will run for a little after removing the air filter and putting a couple of quick squirts of starter fluid into the carb, it means the carb is gunked up and all the orifices need unstopping.

Hello I have a Kipor KDE19st generator, I am having a problem with the auto idle kicking in, this unit only stays at the high idle when started and running it does not kick down when there is no load.


if this problem just started and the auto idle was operational before , replace the auto idle unit
if the unit is new then check that it has an auto idle facility as may gen sets do not idle with no power but run full rpms all the time loaded or not

Unit starts with auto throttle off. engaging auto throttle shuts down unit. in past months, pluging in a cord would shut down unit. That is with no tool in use, just plugging into the receptacle.


Hi. There are 2 things that control the Auto Throttle and that is the idle control valve (Connected with black and yellow wires) and the Auto Throttle Unit.

Start Generator
Check for 12VDC on the Yellow wire of the idle control valve. Yellow is positive to any good Chassis ground. If you don't have 12VDC then either the Auto Throttle switch is bad or the Auto Throttle Unit iself.

You can gain access to the Auto throttle switch and again check for 12VDC to Ground on both sides of the switch with the switch on. (It may read as high as 13.8 engine running) If you don't get 12 - 13.8 VDC the the Auto throttle control unit is bad

If you have 12VDC to the Idle control Valve and it does not work perform a resistance check across the coil of the Idle control Valve (both wires disconnected Engine off) Black to yellow should read 3 to 4 Ohms If you have no resistance then the coil in the Idle control Valve is bad.
