Question about Electrical Supplies
We recently needed our generator during a power outage, but apparently the choke is stuck on. Gas was pumping all over the garage. My brother in law says portable generators don't need service; I believe that they need routine mtce., esp if not used often. Thank you for your reply. S

Check the rectifier board installed under gen cover that powers the brushes. This board has a capacitor about 1 inch long and 3/4 inch dia. If the capacitor looks swollen or burned replace board or carefully remove cap and replace with similar. You can use a larger capacitor with same rating, just tie cap to rear cover. Also check the condition of the brushes. Parts are not too expensive. Check with jacksmallengines on the web for parts. enjoy

Do yourself a favor. Ride to a dealership and ask if they would go over the recommended owner maintenance with you. Have them show you how to do an oil change, spark plug change, set the idle speed, add water to the battery, clean the air filter, check the fuses, change headlight bulbs, and lube the scooter. Purchase lubricants, oil, and spark plug from them. Make friends with the dealer. Ask questions; how often?, what quantity?, how do I measure that?, what tells me I need to bring the scooter in for maintenance or repairs? A good dealer will be happy to show you knowing you will get parts and supplies from them as well as have them do any major repairs.
