SOURCE: onan generator dies after 2-3 hours of running ,

This sounds like overheating. These small generators don't have overheating protection, but if a low oil pressure or low oil level is present it may be the reason for stopping.

Check the oil level in the starting conditions and again when it stops. It may become under the "stop" level and after some time the precipitated oil has reached the "start" level. The same may be with oil viscosity and oil pressure.

Try to add some oil or change the oil with bigger viscosity.

190 honda engine only runs on choke?


pour a large amount of carburator cleaner into the gas tank
run the engine for five minutes then shut it off and let it sit for a couple of days.
then start it and see if it runs any better
the longer you let it sit with the carb cleaner in it, the better it should run

Starts OK but after about 15 or 20 minutes starts losing power and after moving throttle up and down for five minutes or so to keep going dies After cooling for twenty or thirty minutes will start and go...


When your ignition coil get to engine temp. it will begin to lose its power, therefore your engine will eventually shut down, when it cools it will start up again,
Good luck

Engine keeps shutting down


Most Honda engines have an oil pressure switch that prevents engine damage due to low/no oil pressure. Make sure there is sufficient oil in the engine and that the wire is connected to the pressure switch.

Dryer gets hot and shuts off after five minutes,


Check your vent tube to make sure it is clear. It is probably getting to hot because there is no ventilation to the outside. When you have the front off, check all the way from the lint filter to the outsid of the house.

I have a miller blue star 6000. I started it up but its not putting out any power.


By any chance has this generator been sitting for a while, or been dropped? That's a common symptom. The generator has lost its' residual magnatism. The exiter field needs to be flashed. Either follow the instructions in you user manual or see this link:
http://www.dieselduck.net/machine/03%20electricity/flashing_generator.htm

Avoid this problem in the future by running the generator with a load on it for 10 minutes or so every once in a while.
