Question about Electronics - Others
We dont have too much trouble starting the genny but after a while it cuts out. This doesn't seem to matter if it is plugged in to anything or not. We had a mechanic look at it twice. He cleaned the carby bowl, checked the spark plug, changed the engine oil, cleaned the air filter and did a test run. He said it was running fine. But it isn't, it runs for a whle, then stops. We use unleaded from the service station. What could it be. When we get it running sometimes it runs better if the choke is on halfway, but even this doesn't last long. Can you help?
Hate to state the obvious, but is the gas cap vent set to on while you are running it? Also, next time it starts to run poorly, loosen the cas cap. If it runs fine, replace the cap.

Mine did the same thing. After three trips to the dealer, they finally changed the fuel pump and now it runs fine!

1) make sure the genny level and use good oil sometime when using higher grade oil it will not work especially in winter.
2), when is the last time you re-set the valves? it should checked every few hours (according to the manuf.) It is very easy job you need the gab setting from the manual
3) make sure that no air coming from the gas hose. you may have very small hole so see if you can replace them if they are old.

At what altitude are you running? They come set for sea level. If you live above 2500 feet, it needs re-jetting.
