Question about Honda Electrical Supplies
3000- won't stay idled up
There's 2 possible causes . I believe there's a service bulletin from American Honda to replace the small electric motor on top of the carburetor , if still under warranty you good if not have your local dealer contact tech line for a good will warranty . 2nd cause is the inverter behind the front panel . The inverter controls spark , idle and all of the electronic and electric components on your generator . Hope this helps

If this generator has been stored for any length of time with fuel in the carb you probably have a plugged main jet in the carb. As joboo1 says there are a few other things that could cause this behavior, but most often I see dirty carbs, water in the fuel, and plugged/dirty air filters. Get a flashlight and look into the fuel tank thru the filler hole, if you see anything floating in there you've got water in the fuel. Look at the ari cleaner, oil and fuel on the element indicate a dirty carb. Of course check the oil level. Lastly, take the bowl off the bottom of the carb (shut off the fuel valve first), if you see debris in there the carb needs a good cleaning.

use premium non-ethanol fuel(shell,BPS etc).Many stations to the west & north (,Hustisford & many other town's PREMIUM are non-ethanol) and add some sea foam to it. that ethanol is junk. If not used in 30 days toss it. nothin' but trouble.
