Your filter inside tank may be clogged take aome air and blow in the out let of gas to see if it maybe dirty. check the fuel line itself maybe weak inside and collaisping and not allowing fuel.

SOURCE: My Briggs 10 HP Generator is outside and covered

Don't leave gas in the tank, or add additive to gas >>> you know that but the next reader might not know.

If you are able to get washer running by spraying WD-40 or some other accelerant directly into carburetor but engine will not continue running ... there are 3 suspects: 1) dirty air filter 2) the exhaust port is clogged with carbon, dirt, etc 3) the carburetor has given out or no gas is getting to carburetor

2) Check exhaust port >>> we finally broke the screen out with a screwdriver so it wouldn't bother us any more
3) Carburetor ... you have spark but the gas is either not getting to carburetor or carburetor is not letting gas in. Pull off rubber line going to carburetor and see if gas flows out. If gas gets to carburetor and all the conditions above are met, then the carburetor needs gum out or rebuilding or replacement

Why porter cable h450is generator won't start


If it starts initially, then it has spark. most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

Generator starts and runs in choke position only. shuts down in run position.


There is fault in the fuel settings, you might need to remove and clean the carburator, clean the air filter and also check if the oil is clogged.
Also remove the plug and check for dirt electrode tips, if so the spark plug must be replaced. Set with the correct gap , test for the spark before it is replaced.
Also check if there is impurities on the fuel. The carburator resetting must be done with care and take help if needed.

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)

sounds like the float is stuck, how long has it ben setting around? try some carburetor cleaner. spray the carburetor down. empty the fuel tank put fresh fuel with fuel treatment. you may have to remove the spark plug, pull starter string a couple of times to clear out cylinder make sure spark plug is dry put back in and try to start the generator.

Generator doesn't start


Hi

Check the spark at the plug,compression and carburation.Priming the engine,putb some gas in the cilinder and start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you puted in the cilinder you have a delivery problem to find and fix.Remove the carb,disassembly and clean it,check and clean the air and gas filters.
