Question about Champion 3500/4000 Watt Portable Generator
Generator starts right up.... cuts off after a few minutes. It will restart right up after I put the choke on...but will cut off again. I'm figuring it's a stuck float. The filter is new...gas is new. Bowl to the carburetor is clean. How can I get the float to work right?
It could be a carburetor problem or it may be the low oil cut off switch. Check to make sure oil level is up. If it is check the needle valve attached to the float and the seat. The old carbs used to have a brass seat. Some of the new carbs have a rubber seat and it may need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.
