Won't start. Just put in a new spark plug and fresh gas. filter is clean and so is the oil


Take it back to the dealer. These small units have a 12 volt DC
generator that is internally converted to 120 volts AC. As such
they are fairly complicated.

Gas in oil


First of all check to see you have a good spark, If it is running fine under load ignition should not be an issue. If un burnt fuel or over fueling causes the oil / gas to wash down the cylinder walls. I would also perform a leakdown test not a compression test, remove the dipstick and listen for air coming out the crankcase, that will give you an idea if you ahve a ring problem. Also remove the air filter and see if you have any blow back from the carb blowing out where the choke butterfly is. If it has less than 150 hours on it, the rings may also not be seated in, try the above then run it hard on load and check it again

Honda generator starts, runs, then stalls and backfires


Honda makes quite good gasoline motors. I doubt it is a valve timing issue but it might be a burned valve or a valve adjustment issue. What does after a while mean? A couple of minutes or 4 hours? Is it running for just a short while and then stops or it runs well for a long time and then stops?

My Honda generators have a low oil sensor that automatically shuts them down when a low oil level is detected. I keep a quart handy and top off the oil, and they start and run fine.

the worst thing for generator and compressors are to sit up. when you do sit them up put stabil in the gas. run it and then run the gas out of the carburator. now, make sure the gas in the tank is good and has no water or trash. check the fuel line that it is in good conditon and not plugged. pull the carberator and clean varnish out and clean jets. soak it over nite in varsol or parts cleaner. check to see if you have a low oil shut off. oil level must be correct. check your exhaust to make sure it isn't plugged. some have a little screen that get coated with carbon and won't let it exhaust.( fuel in, spark, exhaust out)

Generator starts runs with a miss for a minute or 2 then dies just changed oil and plug checked gas supply was good any idea whats wrong


If you have good spark, clean air filter (replace anyways), try choking it half way or so. If it runs better, then it is running too lean, probably a clogged orifice or jet in the carb. If choking it makes it run worse, then it is likely running too rich. Could be a float problem, or metering tube that is clogged and isn't spraying.

Honda GX160 runs fine for 5 minutes then dies like out of fuel.


I would look for the fuel filter. Blow it our. I know you have a new tank of gas, but you might want to empty it out and make sure the clean and put in new. Even with Stabil in the gas you might just have to much condensation in the tank
