This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.

Hi , I have a 2500 watts honda generator , it's starts & sounds alright but when you plug a power tool and once you press the trigger of tool it shuts off right away ... What could be the problem ?


Wow, you must have one mighty bit power tool there. The Honda genny should accept it easily. You don't mention the current draw of that power tool - it should be under approx. 2200W to allow for start-up load. The other possibility is an excessively long power cord or even a short-circuit in the tool ...... or a problem with the genny itself! Try plugging in your wife's hair dryer to check it. Failing that you should get an electrician to check it all out.
Good luck.

RYOBI 1000w Digital inverter generator. ...will not start... we have followed the instructions provided and we cannot get the genny to fire up..... oil level is fine, switches on the correct position,,...


have had the same problem with a Ryobi 1000w invertor generator. The problem that you are experiencing is the low level oil switch. To confirm if this is the problem disconnet the low level oil switch (Yellow or Orange wire). Try and start the generator now, it should start with the first little tug on the recoiler. Once it is running, reconect the low level oil switch and see what happens then. Either it will cut out, then you know it is the oil level switch or it will continue running and the problem will go away. Please ensure you manually check the oil level first before starting.

Generator back firing from inlet manafold


Your symptoms are from running lean. Foam air filters put debris in carb jets. Check all the carb passageways and jets. Always start with a new plug.

I have a Yanmar 4.5 KVA Generator running into a Trace 2.5 KVA inverter/charger, the inverter requires 205-220volts to operate,once the inverter connects the voltage drops on the genny over a ten second+-...


try adjusting the gen voltage at no load to run at 240 volts
when the load comes on it will drop back to 220-235 volts
check the load output from the inverter as 2.5 kv is nearly 80% of the genset duty cycle
4.5 KV is start up KV and the duty KV is around 3..8 kv not the plated 4.5 kv
to get constant 4.5 kv you will need a 5.5-6 kv unit
if the current draw from the inverter is excessive , the engine may not have enough in reserve to over come the load and will not pick up the rpms
take the gen set and the inverter to a shop that has a calibrated load bank to test accurate power output to determine if the engine needs an overhaul

Honda EU3000is generator will not start with electric starter.


I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.
