As you pull the starter cord do you feel compression? If not piston,or rings or cylinder or valves defective.

Generator wants to start. It fires for a couple of seconds then shuts down.


there will be a oil level control unit on the engine sump that has a habit of failing on a regular basis
test it or replace it.

One cylinder not firing on generator


If you have spark and compression and it not firing then you must not have fuel. the fuel is fed from the demand regulator thru the intake independent for each cylinder. Check the intake and make sure that the NG/LP pin is all the way to the NG side.

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.

I have a Gen Power 10hp OHV Briggs & Stratton which is very hard to start. I have changed the spark plug, taken the air filter off but will not start.


I recently had trouble with my own generator. My situation was that the old gas left in the unit smelled more like lacquer than gas, the generator had not been cranked in over a year, and it simply wouldn't even attempt to fire when pulling the starter cord.

I checked the oil level, and drained and replaced the gas. I applied liberal amounts of carburetor cleaner into carburetor. The generater would briefly fire with cleaner in the carburetor. I also removed the spark plug, grounded it against the chasis, and observed good spark when I pulled the cord. This left me to believe gas simply was not getting into carburetor.

I removed the bowl and saw it was full of gas. With a container ready to catch any gas, I opened the valve near the tank and observed liberal amounts of fuel spilling from where bowl mounts to carburetor. So, good gas flow to bowl confirmed.

Using carburetor cleaner and compressed air, I blew out and attempted to clean every orifice I could see. I also checked the float assembly and saw the needle valve that allows/blocks fuel into bowl was operating freely. Reassembled everything, and still wouldn't start.

Took the bowl back out and gave the float assembly further inspection. On my unit, there is a large hole in the center of the assembly where the "perforated brass straw" should be sucking up gas. In the bottom of that hole I discovered a brass plug. I didn't spot this plug before because is was totally encrusted in trash. I was able to remove the plug. This thing is about 4mm long and wide. In the center of this plug I discovered a completely clogged hole. I had to actually scrape it clean with a metal pick, being careful not to damage the metal. I then followed up with lots of carb cleaner and compressed air to make the plug and the tiny hole completely clean. I replaced the plug, replaced the bowl, and the generator fired right up.

I wanted to share my story with you because of the frustration I went through taking my carburetor off at least 8 times before finally discovering this tiny brass plug that no one on any of the forums has ever mentioned.
