It is most likely needing a deep cleaning of the carburetor. With the fuels we are now having to use the carburetor passages tends to clogged more easily when they sit unused.

SOURCE: Colman Powermate Generator will not stay running

This overflow can be caused by:

1. The float sticking

2. Gas inside of the float air chambers

3. The needle and seat have debris in them or a r damaged.

It is not a difficult fix but it does mandate removal of the carburetor float bowl.

You could probably do this yourself. It is much easier if you place the generator on a high work area so you can see the float and needle once you have the float bowl removed. Just make sure you do not drop the float assy so far that the needle comes out of the seat unless you have to remove the hinge pin SCREW for the float to clear the debris near the needles' pointed rubber head.

Thanks for using FixYa

My Ryobi 3500 generator starts but will not run

* check and clean out air filter.
* drain out old fuel from lines around on/off fuel valve.
* You may need to drain and force flush out fuel filter (I used the carborator cleaner to force out water in filter.)
* re-assemble fuel lines and clamp.
* pull out choke lever to full choke.
* Pull start cord (or start switch) several times to prime fuel line.
* Turn on switches to ready generator for start up.
* Try several times to start.
* If it won't start then spray in carborator cleaner or Generator start spay into the air intake (with air filter sponge removed. Just a short burst is needed.
* Try starting again.
* Pull at least 3 times before spraying any additional cleaner to prevent flooding.
* If generator does not even turn over then there is a spark or ignition problem. Pull the spark plug to clean and check gap. (see your specs for recommended gap.)
* try spray starting method again.
* if your still having problems (with not turning over at all) then you will have to take it to a small engine shop or contact the vendor for service. Check your warranty.
* Once the generator has started. Keep it running till smooth operation. Adjusting the choke to normal open position may take a few minutes till the engine has time to warm up. Install air filter and close up all covers. Allow for a 5 min run and check by connecting a load to the electrical out put. (plug in a saw or other heavy duty power tool) The generator should adjust to the additional load.

Why does my miller bobcat welder generator not stay at an idle when swithed to low idle, insted it goes back and forth to high then to low idle?


The unit may need recalibrating the idle/run setting. Instructions found in manual at 8-6 (subaru engine) and 9-5 (kohler). Idle speed around 2200rpm. Simple screw adjustment. PDF manual here :- http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o4434l_mil.pdf

I have a UST GG7500 Generator and it will not stay running.


Make sure there is enough oil, some generators wont start when oil level is low to protect from damage. Also have you cleaned the fuel injector, they get dirty and clogged just like a car.

FLOODING CAN TURN FUEL VALVE NEARLY OFF AND WILL RUN ROUGH BUT NOT REALLY GOOD ENOUGH TO DO ANY WELDING


sounds like the float in the carburetor is stuck open. remove the float bowl and use a parts cleaner or carb cleaner and spray down the float and seat area, make sure that the float moves freely and the seat moves and seals properly.

GENERATOR WON'T START. IT HAS NOT BEEN STARTED IN ABOUT THREE YEARS.IT DID START AFTER I REPLACED SPARK PLUG,BUT ONLY FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS..ALSO SPRAYED STARTING FUID IN CARBERATOR. NO GO.


FIND THE FUEL SHUT OFF VALVE.IF IT WAS CLOSED WHEN YOU HAD IT RUNNING,THE FIX IS AS SIMPLE AS DRAIN OLD FUEL,REPLACE WITH FRESH GASOLINE,OPEN THE VALVE TRY TO CRANK IT AGAIN.
IF IT WAS OPEN WHEN IT WAS RUNNING,SOUR GASOLINE AND VARNISH HAS LIKLEY GOT TO THE CARBORATOR.
REMOVE THE AIR FILTER,LOCATE THE BOLT IN THE CENTER,ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CARBORATOR BOWL AND REMOVE IT. CAREFULLY EASE THE BOWL STRAIT DOWN,AS NOT TO BEND THE TAB THAT CONTROLS THE FLOAT LEVEL,OR LOSE THE FUEL INLET JET. EXAMIN THE BOWL FOR CORROSION OR GUNK.
THIS IS AN INDICATION THE CARBORATOR MAY BE PLUGED WITH GUNK,WHICH COMES FROM GASOLINE SOURING AND TURNING TO VARNISH AS IT EVAPORATES OVER TIME.
ON THE CARBORATOR,WHERE THE BOWL WAS TAKEN OFF,IN THE CENTER ON THE BOTTOM NOTICE THE FUEL PICK UP TUBE,TAKE A PIPE CLEANER AND CLEAN IT BY PUSHING STRAIT UP AND DOWN A FEW TIMES,THEN FLUSH IT WITH CARB CLEANER.
REPEAT THIS UNTIL IT IS CLEAR.
LOOK CLOSELY AT THE SIDE OF THE PICK UP TUBE FOR A VERY SMALL HOLE,WITH A SMALL WIRE,CLEAR THE HOLE AND FLUSH WITH CARB CLEANER.
CAREFULLY REPLACE THE BOWL AS NOT TO BEND THE TAB ON THE FLOAT,MAKE SURE THE NEEDLE JET IS IN THE NEEDLE SEAT AS YOU PUSH THE BOWL INTO PLACE.
PUT THE BOWL BOLT BACK IN,CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN IT.
WITH FRESH GASOLINE IN THE TANK,AND THE FUEL VALVE OPEN,YOU ARE READY TO TRY CRANKING IT.
IT MAY TAKE A FEW TRYS.
IF YOU FEEL CLEANING THE FUEL SYSTEM IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU,PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.TAKE THE MACHINE TO A SMALL ENGINE MECHANIC.
YOU MAY CAUSE COSTLY DAMAGE TO DELICATE PARTS OR UNINTENTIONALLY CHANGE THE FLOAT LEVEL CAUSING FLOODING OR STARVING OF FUEL TO THE ENGINE.
BEST OF LUCK...

Only stays cranked on full choke.


your carb. is gummed up. Get some carbeurator cleaner spray and spray it into the air intake as it is running until it clears up. if it wont clear up, you will have to have the carb rebuilt.

Generac Generator won't stay running


fuel problem, the float in the carborator is stuck, if you tap on the carborator bowl it will probably get freed up.if not take the bowl off and spray the insides with carb. cleaner.
