Use a cordless drill and a 3/8 drive Socket conversion that fits the center Bolt on the fly wheel and spin it the correct direction and it will fire up really easy.. just for anyone else that incounters the same issue in the job of at home..

My Champion 4000 watt generator will not start in cold weather


If you want it to start with a start motor, driven from a battery, my guess is the battery is in bad condition. Normally a battery will perform less when temperature is going down, but an old or worn out battery can't perform at all when it is cold. I would check that first. Just take a good battery to start one of them and see what happens. Then see if you want to replace them.

Guardian propane generator hard starting. At 20 F backfires and won`t start. Goes to overcrank.


It needs a cold weather option, one that heats the oil and also the carb so the LP gas does not freeze the carb. A common problem

I bought a champion generator 2 yrs ago.It ran when I bought it. Have not occasion to use it until now. It will not fire. It had some rust on the flywheel. Removed the rust. I replaced the spark plug.


Probably only one of these issues to cause that. gas not turned on or flooded- ck spark plug to see if it is wet, check to see if the spark plug is getting power by taking it out leaving the wire on it and holding it about a 1/8 of a inch away from some exposed metal part of the frame and have someone try to start it. if you get a spark then ck your gap and put it back. Ck your choke too to see if it is on. also if it was flooded then leave the choke off and keep trying to start it. if it was stored outside, it may have water in the gas.

The coil rope broke I would like to know how i can repair it. Generator 5500 watt champion.


If I understand correctly, you have a pull-start generator.

The rope to the pull-start broke.

This happened to us out on the job one day.

Our equipment might be different than yours. Our pull-start assembly is held with 4 bolts. Simply remover those bolts and lift off the cover ... carefully. The rope is attached to something I will call a pulley. The rope wraps around the pulley several times.

Do not lift out the pulley that the rope attaches to >> or the spring that re-winds the rope will come un-sprung (at least it did on our machine). If the spring comes unwound, then you got another job, and have to put the spring back also. Your machine might be different.

Keep pulley in place. Remove rope. Get another rope with same diameter and length and put it in.
