Question about Honda EU3000iSAN EU 3000 Watt Generator w/ Electric Start 50 State Legal

Open Question

Honda 3000 generator; I accidentally ran it for about 40 minutes with the choke on with a moderate load and the generator stopped running and won't start.

The generator only has about 30 hours on it and was starting and running very well before this incident. It was a hot day, about 94 degrees so the generator was hot. It cranks normally but doesn't run.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a few possibilities you may want to check/explore:

  • stale gasoline;
  • clogged fuel filter (inside the tank above the fuel shutoff valve;
  • clogged, bocked, varnished, gummed carbs, jets, air pin holes;
  • stuffed air filter/box;
  • vacuum leak (rubber coupling, manifold side);
  • air leak (airbox base assembly seated/fitted on the carbs.
Basically, a general cleanup of the fuel lines, tank and the carbs. Sitting for some time tends to leave varnish like coating on most parts.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: Honda EU3000is generator will not start with electric starter.

I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

Only runs on choke


it's sound like it need ajustement on carburator because choke only make the mixture air/gas more rich.
Or if it's very cold outside sometimes you have to wait long before out it in normal position. That do to the density of air ... if the adjusment have been made in 25C in summer and now is -15c outside the air is more dense so the motor need a mix more rich.

Gas in oil


First of all check to see you have a good spark, If it is running fine under load ignition should not be an issue. If un burnt fuel or over fueling causes the oil / gas to wash down the cylinder walls. I would also perform a leakdown test not a compression test, remove the dipstick and listen for air coming out the crankcase, that will give you an idea if you ahve a ring problem. Also remove the air filter and see if you have any blow back from the carb blowing out where the choke butterfly is. If it has less than 150 hours on it, the rings may also not be seated in, try the above then run it hard on load and check it again

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Honda EU30001 generator causes erratic pellet stove operation.


Ok Motors and the like generally DO NOT really go all that well from a generator, what load does the Stove use?, You must add up the cumlitive "Wattages" of ALL things connected, see your generator is about 3000 Watts, 3KW, How much "headroom" is there between the two? Whats supplied versus whats being used? Purely inductive loads, like Motors etc, are less responsive than electronic loads. I suspect that your generator is NOT providing enough current to the Stove, especially when "Other" things are connected. also. Look, if the, any, generator is 3000 Watts really you should only load it up to a couple of KW's, 2.5KW being about maximum. To do what you are doing would require, IMHO, at least, 5KW, to get the "Headroom" of current drawn over current able to be delivered by the generator. Also inductive loads loose heaps of power and actually cause a higher draw. So that your answer, you must use it well, inside it's rating, not right up to the limit.

I have a Honda EU 2000i generator. With eco switch on or off the generator revs up every few seconds. If I turn the choke to half it seems to almost get rid of the problem. What can be causing this?


starving for fuel. the generator will always rev up when it is under a load or about to run out of gas. there will be a few adjustment screws on the carb... one for air and one for fuel. try increasing the fuel a quarter turn and see how that does

Won't run with out choking


dirty carb. choking adjusts the air flow to enrich the mixture to make up for lack of fuel.

Honda em2500 starts, runs 1 minute, quits and will not restart


If the oil level is low it will do this, but I also know this to happen when the oil is very cold (thick) an won't fow back own o the crankcase where the oil sensor is. The slow return results in a low oil level. My solution is to start it, when it dies wait a couple of minutes and retry... after a few starts, the oil will warm up, thus flowing back down faster and it then will run. Another option is to use a thinner oil ie;5-30w.
