Portable generators are noisy. If you have neighbors nearby or the noise is unbearable in your house here are some ideas.

Choose an operating location as far away as possible. Note that a larger gauge wire is needed to reduce voltage drop as line length increases. Reducing line loss is required to minimize power loss and to ensure maximum power is available to the house. Lights will flicker less when heavy loads are attached.

Change the exhaust system. Noise from the portable generator systems comes primarily from two sources, the engine block and the exhaust system. With an air cooled engine there is little you can do about block noise. Some engines can have a larger muffler attached or make other changes to the exhaust system. Merely mounting exhaust pipe vertically will noticeably reduce noise.

Build a noise shielding enclosure. This could be as simple as a piece of plywood to reflect sound away from the house to a separate shed to hold the generator. Design your enclosure with safety in mind. Provide adequate air circulation and ventilation to prevent heat buildup and to remove carbon monoxide.

If the noise bothers your neighbors, invite them over for coffee or offer to run line to their home to power the freezer or a few lights. Talk to them before starting the engine, ask they let you know if the noise is bothersome before they phone the police or harbor any resentment. A little diplomacy can go a long way.

Last resort, shut off the engine or buy a quiet generator.

I want to change the oil on my Yard Machines snow thrower with a 10hp Tecumseh engine and can't find the engine manual. What kind and how much oil should I use? Thanks - Zelmo


Zelmo use 10w30 weight oil and just put in enough to reach the full mark. In an air cooled engine I highly recommend you use Full Synthetic oil. It performs much better than conventional oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil once a year.

Tecumseh model 100 engine 10hp on a coleman powermate generator it starts ok however after about 3 minutes the engine sputters like it is running out of gas and quits.


check the fuel mixture settings i believe main screw is 1 3/4 turns from closed and the idle screw is set at 1 1/4 turns from closed. These settings are for non OHV models. also check that if you have a fuel filter installed that it is not plugged up.
