Try a shot of starting fluid. If it does not start with that it may have a fuel supply problem.

Start looking at your safety circuits.

1. High water temp
2. Low Oil
3. Low water etc...

From the manual these are the protection circuits.

• Engine protection: low oil pressure, high engine temperature.
• Genset protection: under/over voltage, overload, battery charger failure, battery voltage out of limits,
under/over frequency, start failure.
• Circuit breaker protection: IV poles.
• Differential protection.

Any one of them will trip the fuel relay closed. What you may be able to do is disconnect one at a time each protection circuit and see when the fuel relay opens. (Make sure to reconnect each one if it had no effect on the fuel solenoid)

Once you isolate which circuit it is in then you can chase wires or change the bad switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My diesel pramac P9000 generator engine is not starting even cranked for long time what is the problem

Check and replace the spark plug, clean filters and try again. If this doesn't fix it, it is probably the carb. Clean it and try a SMALL squirt of starter fluid

1992 mercury sable will turn over but wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, check the basics. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. I looked at info for the 3.8L engine, 35--40 psi. Also, after you build fuel pressure, turn off the key, see if fuel pressure holds for a bit? If the pressure drops like a rock, check for fuel pressure leak. Check the vac line for fuel pressure regulator, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty, or a leaking fuel injector. The pressure could also drain back through fuel pump.
Also, check fuel injector pulse, engine cranking. Any applicable trouble codes?
Smell of the crankcase oil dipstick, if it smells like gas, either you don't change oil and filter very often or the engine is running very rich for some reason.

I have a guardian 15000 generator. Have not used it in a couple of years. New battery and gas and attempted to start it and it will crank, start, then immediately die. Need help. Storm approaching...

Hello, I tried to answer this problem you had a few days ago. You were worried the hurricane was come and your generator wouldn't start. I tried to post the answer but Quest has the slowest servers were work properly. To many customers and not updated servers. Anyway I hope this help you out.

First, replace the fuel filter. When taking out the fuel filter let the gas in the run into a can. This will help to remove any sediment in the fuel tank. Buy a couple of fuel filters. One problem is it where you live. Condensation builds up in the fuel tank and this create rust. When the hurricane is over. Remove the fuel tank, and have it cleaned out. Now, see if they can line the fuel tank inside with a plastic coating. This will stop the rust. Also, insert absorbents packs in the tank when the generator is idle. This will will help the moisture build up.

Second, change the oil and remove the oil pressure shut off sensor and clean it or replace it.
If it has a temperature sensor take it out and clean it. If it has a oil filter change it also.

Third, remove the spark and clean it or replace it. Make sure you have the right plug gap on the spark plug..

Fifth, use some carburetor cleaner and spray around the throttle place and choke plate and make sure that the governor arm to the carburetor is free to operate and everything in the carburetor is working freely.

Fourth, remove the air filter and clean it or replace it.

Sixth, remove all the fuel in the tank and filter the fuel with a couple pair of your wife's pantie hose.
Be really careful, gasoline is extremely explosive.

Seventh, remove the fitting from the tank and use compressed air to clean out the tank. You might think I'm going to far here. Once you think the tank is clean install all the brass fitting and hose and new filters and pour the filter gas back into the tank. as long as it is new gas, if it's fuel old depose of the old fuel.

Next, Never used starting fluid on gas engines. If you get to much starter fluid in the combustion camber it can explode and blow the head off or nock the top of piston off destroying the engine. You and your family be safe. GB you all....stewbison

My 5000 watt Homelite Generator will start on the first pull but then runs for about 2 to 5 seconds and dies or it gets rough and then dies. I have cleaned the carburator and checked the full line for flow...

If you have an oil level switch on this generator, it could be that you have low oil level or the switch is bad. Check the oil level. Bypass the oil level switch.

How old is the fuel in the tank, and how full is the tank? Fuel goes bad with time due to the ethonol turning to gummy varnish like substance. Not keeping a tank full allows condensation to form on the inner walls, contaminating the fuel with water. Drain the tank completely and fill with new gasoline.

How did you "clean the carb?" If it was not completely disassembled, soaked in carb cleaner, and all jets and ports blown out with air, you could have blockages from the "bad gas."

Low power

Hi ,
firstly i would do a full service on it , all filter and fluids , oil/coolant water,fuel filter(s) and air filters
pay attention to any water seperators , check all fuel line connectors and unions are tight and in good order ( drawing a small amount of air into the fuel system if often the cause of ''a lack of power '')
check your diesel as it absorbs moisture and can severley effect the running of an engine .
if this has no effect
get a rag /goggles and the right size open ended spanner and slacken each fuel injector nut whilst the engine is running , listen for the engine noise going down , if it dosent this means the injector is deffective ( might need replacing or cleaning ) do this to each injector in turn , be very careful as you do this , the diesel is at 200bar pressure and can injected you ( hence the rag )
a final one is the fuel lift pump may be deffective , they often partially work and starve the engine at maximum revs , depending on your engine this will be an electric one or driven directly from the engine block , just follow the fuel lines from your diesel tank ,.
hope this helps
