How reliable is patriot Power Generator?


Best to look for reviews on websites of companies that sell particular brands. Regardless of brand, make sure to drain fuel completely after use. Most small engine equipment, including generators, are not ethanol friendly, so use Pure Gas if available in your area. I recommend you look for a tri-fuel model that will run on gasoline, natural gas, or propane. Also, there are kits available to convert gas generator to tri-fuel or bi-fuel.

What steps do I take to get a Yamaha EF1000 gas powered electric generator going again after it has been sitting around for years with gas in the tank? How do I drain the gas from the tank and carburater?...


You can disconnect the fuel line from the carb and drain the gas. It would be even better to then remove the fuel tank. If this is the generator with the large plastic tank, quite often the rubber gromet in the bottom of the tank with shout off vavle in it will deteriorate into a black gooey mess, and leak. If so that will have to be replaced. Clean inside of tank with fresh gasoline. Remove bowl from carburator and clean throughly. If you know how to work on engines, remove the carburator and clean throughly, notice how all springs and linkage were connected before removeal. Be sure all passage ways in carb are clean. Always use sta-bill in your gas.

Can the ecu memory be flashed on a yamaha EF2800iportable generator? My 2800i will start and run for about 90 seconds and then shuts down. Carb is fine. Two issues: 1. It is not generating...


It sounds like its running on the gas in the carburetor and not the gas filling back up to run more, I bet you have a gas supply problem to the carburetor! Try Babbitts Yamaha Partshouse online...

Can I convert a Yamaha EC 5000DV generator to electric start? Where can I get those parts. rich


You can convert it BUT.... It will require spending almost as much on parts and shipping as this generator is worth.

You will need a new flywheel. Wiring harness for the start circuit, Key / switch assy, modified contgrol panel, Starter & solenoid, mounting bolts, a battery and battery holder. Additionally you will will need a voltage requlator.
Each of the parts will have to be special ordered from a Yamaha service center type shop. There is not a kit form for your unit. Depending on exactly which engine you have the 357 CC or the 410 CC you may not even be able to do it at all.

I just looked into doing the same thing for a Robin RGV 6100. "The dealers have you by the private parts!!!" The cost was about $200.00 less than buying a new generator of the equal size with an electric start system. The only thing I would not have had to buy for that conversion would be the regulator due to it being an inverter generator type unit.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Conversion of Yamaha gasoline electricazl generator engine to natural gas


My answer:

Hello Bill:

Here are the site links you'll need to check and/or get info, or buy your adapter kit for your Yami YG4600D Genset conversion kit.

Most likely it's running an 8 or 10HP engine on it now? In any case it's most likely less then 12HP. Not sure what size engine you have, as you didn't say only for the model #? On older Gensets it's harder to track down the HP rated engine is all.

For your Yami YG4600D Genset there you most likely will have your choice of at least 4 adapter kits depending on if you are going to keep gasoline as an option. If you're definitely NOT going to be ever running gasoline again then there are 1 or 2 adapter kits to choose from.

Use the site links below, and then browse whichever area you want as there are many options there. The last link listed takes you through all the different engines by make & model #'s.

I would also shop around locally where you are in LA, as you might be able to get that adapter kit for a lot less then the $227 to $267 they are asking for there at that site.

If you don't see your exact model # (or kit) there call them on their 800 toll free # listed at their site.

Also - if this site doesn't meet your expectations customer service wise at least you will have a starting off point with the wealth of information supplied there!
