My honda 2000 whisperer generator runs then shuts off after about 3 minutes. What could possibly be wrong?


Always use ONLY fresh fuel... (page 32 of owners manual) it is very easy to forget about because HONDA is such an awesome machine... but EVEN MORE LIKELY...

HONDA has a very sensitive self protection device

Your oil pressure cut off switch could be responding to the WRONG OIL...
DIRTY OIL...
LOW OIL or WORSE... OVERFILLED Oil.

Check it out in your owners manual. ((below) http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31Z07610.pdf

I have a Honda EP5000 Generator set with GX340 engine, the problem is that too much oil is discharging from OHV cover into the Air Cleaner via that rubber pipe and spilling out from it. Engine also smokes...


Hi,the quick,but not final fix for this issue is to use a oil additive similar the one-s from the cars,but make sure you are using the one required by the fuel type.The engine is worn out,needs overhaul,soon or later.Good luck,regards

check and change the oil it some times the oil become weak and the engine can lift it up and out. also over filled oil is more easy for the engine to life it up and out. check the sump breather aswell make sure its not blocked.

How can I shut my Honda eu1000i off from inside the cabin?


You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.

Honda generator em 1800


Honda generators are very reliable and are easy to adjust. The best way to check for proper output is to use a meter that can check cycles and voltage. Set meter to htz or freq and adjust the engine governor to 60 cycles. When the engine is turning 3600 rpm it is at max power and the generator may be producing ac voltage ranging from 115 to 125 at 60 cycles. When you draw power from the generator the engine governor will try to overcome the stress and maintain 3600 rpm. The engine must be well maintained to produce full power. Service oil, filter, plug and valve adjustment. Some engines have a spark arrester installed in the muffler that may become blocked with carbon. If engine is producing full power and voltage/amps is low then check brushes, capacitors, and/ or voltage regulator. Most problems occur when too much power is requested from rated generator. Example, trying to connect an 1800 watt air compressor to generator. The compressor may draw double the stated wattage upon starting and cycling. For longest generator life, It is best to use only 75% of rated output. On an 1800 watt generator use max wattage 1350. If you actually need to use 1800 watts then the best generator would be a 2500 watt. enjoy
