Question about Electrical Supplies

What would make a McCulloch FG6000MK 11 HP generator start and idle fine but not able to rev-up and generate power.

Hello, my dad's McCulloch FG6000MK 11 HP, 4 stroke, 5.7 KVA, 5700 Watt generator will start and idle smoothly without shutting off, but it will not rev-up to be able to generate any power. My dad has cleaned the lines and checked the tank in case a helicopter seed had fallen in, but there seems to be no obstruction as the fuel flows freely. It is kept out of the dirt and elements in a cement-floor building and has hardly been used. My dad is extremely mechanically-inclined but cannot determine the cause. Please help.

Have to an ultrasinic cleaning of the carburetor and see if that will clean up the problem,

Bad on parts though most are NLA. but a carburetor from a Honda 11hp horizonal might work on this Chinese Honda cloned engine.

How can I replace carburetor?


I believe the electric solenoid is a fuel shut off. solenoid needs energized, normally with switch 12 Volts. other then float bowls are the carbs. identical, if they are switch bowls, should work. If not you will have to add switched power to solenoid, the link below looked similar to yours.

Is there a brand.... on your current spark plug?

Most generators will do just fine with an NGK BPR5ES spark plug in most any environment.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Mcculloch 5700 watt Generator that needs carburetor rebuilt and can't seem to find parts. Any suggestions on where to get parts ?


Take the make and model #s to a lawnmower shop, they can get what you need, if they do not have it in stock. Also remember to check in tank strainer for restriction.

My 5700 watt 11 HP McCullough generator wont start. I'm getting good gas to the plug but no spark.


The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.

11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire


If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.
