Troy bilt generator

Troy-Bilt 7500 watt , 13,500 watt surge generator, model# 1925. Will not start. Has not been started in past year. Stays inside a garage out of weather. Replaced plug, drained fuel tank and replaced with fresh gas, and installed NEw battery. Unit has spark, and fuel is pumping out of fuel tank line to the carb. If I add small amount of gas down intake side of carb and set choke the generator unit will start, but as soon as small amount of gas runs out the unit stops.

SOURCE: My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: troy bilt gas portable generator not producing

First thing to check is to see if the generator is actually turning--couplers sometimes fail. You need some electrical skills and a voltmeter to trace down problems in the generator beyond checking the health of the two brushes that supply current (< 115 volts DC) into the rotor field circuit. You can find wiring and schematic drawings on the Troy-Built web site, just look for the 030248 model. Another person that I worked with had a similar unit with the same problem. It looked like the voltage regulator board was the problem, but haven't heard back if he had fixed it.

SOURCE: My Troy-bilt generator will not generate watts

I have a Troy bilt 7800 13500 generator. It has maybe 40 hrs on it. And It stopped working. I took it into a shop to have it fixed. Repair cost would be $1000.00 I paid 1200 for it. Shop said the 3 main parts of the generator were fried. The Generator was bought in 2005 and only like 40 hrs on it and it is dead. Troy bilt will not help out with the repair because it is to old, yet it has no real run time on it. Now the generator is just a paper weigh

SOURCE: troy bilt 5550 generator no start please help

fuel, fire, mechanical. Miss one and she won;t run. Are you sure the gas was good? Not some old can laying around that may have turned or become water contaminated? If it was fresh gas, then take off the air cleaner and spray a little wd-40, or ether, or brake cleaner whatever is flammable into the carb throat. Just a 1 second shot is all it should need. Try and start with that. If it starts and then dies quickly, still a fuel problem. maybe a gasket is damaged, or the jet is clogged. When you said you checked for fire, you acutally took the plug out and had it grounded while spinning the motor and saw spark? If you saw a hot spark then you have eliminated fire. Mechanical not likely if it was running well a short time before. If a valve was damaged, it would still run but not too well. My gut feeling is it is related to fuel.

Troubleshoot troy bilt generator


Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers Verify that the engine is running at full RPM If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

The generator engine is shipped from the factory filled with

operation in the widest range of temperature and climate

ensure that engine is serviced as described in Maintenance.
