Question about Electrical Supplies
Hi there. i have a kubota na 600 generator. the problem is there's is no fuel getting into the cylinder. there is fuel in the carb bowl and if i put fuel down the cylinder head via the spark plug hole it runs for a few seconds then cuts out. i've took the carb appart and cleaned it all then put it back together and still get the same results. it will keep running if i spray fuel via an atomiser through the air intake. is there a workshop manual i can download for this generator? any help would be much appreciated thanks
The primer is sucking air, hose leaking or primer bad, When you start it and it starts to shut off, pump the primer and it will keep it running, Then you know I,am right. !!!!!!

When you say you took carb apart did you put a new rebuild kit in it? If not there is your problem. The fuel eats over time the seals an they leak. There is only one fix to rebuild it or get a new carb. These kits are very cheap an easy to do. Just make sure you clean out all the orifices with something like a brass or steel bristle from a brush. Being careful not to enlarge the holes. When you remove the bowl on the carb if it has one. Be sure not to lose the springs an clean out the jets under the float. The kit for each engine is different. Use all the parts, dont skimp thinking this one is ok. Be sure to replace fuel lines at this time they get holes an cracks on them an cause all sorts of problems. This is an easy job. Your engine is sucking air, not fuel. Be sure to check to make sure passage to the engine is not clogges with somthing.

if it's flooding the float may have a tiny hole which makes it not float as well and too much fuel will stall the engine...If it's not getting enough fuel to keep running then its usually because of a small piece of dirt blocking a hole..under the carb there should be a brass bolt...take that off and check that the two side holes are clear...then check the center orifice and blow it out...there is also a tiny little hole up near where the threads start...use a wire from a wire brush to make sure its clean....also clean out the bowl and then reassemble...this works 90% of the time for me

SOURCE: Generator not running
This sounds like a jet is plugged, if fuel is getting into the bowl. You need to take apart and blow out all of the jets. (The secret on the adjustment screws is BEFORE ANYTHING, measure EXACTLY how many turns clockwise, until the screw (jet) bottoms out. Then you can get back to an adjustment that is at least close, when you're done blowing everything out.) Pull the carb, use spray carb cleaner and blow all passageways out... remove any particulate matter you find....
While there, also clean the inlet (float) valve, but now with cleaner, if it is a rubber looking seal area. You just want no chunks of foreign material.
