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.

SOURCE: I have a Generac portable generator 5000 watts, won't start!

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

SOURCE: Coleman Powermate 5000 starts with starter fluid, but leaks

Sounds like you need to clean the carb ports, lines, jets, etc... purchase a carb spray cleaner with a tube to place on the spray head (Berryman's Chemtool B-12 is awesome). Take the carb loose from the generator, and remove the bowl, needle valve and spray carb cleaner thru all the holes, lines in the carb. Reinstall complete with air cleaner and retry... also if the gas is old, drain and replace with new...

SOURCE: Generator with Briggs & Stratton,no gas is getting in carburetor

The needle valve may be stuck which would not let gas into the carb. I don;t think rebuild kits are too expensive. Pull the carb and take it to a lawnmower repair shop and they should have the parts. Before that though pull the bowl and make sure it has gas in it. If no then remove the fuel line and make sure gas flows from it. If no then could be the fuel shutoff valve is not operating properly or junk in the gas tank is obstructing the line.

SOURCE: Coleman 5000 watt generator Tecumseh 10 hp engine.

it's running lean.....try resetting the choke partially when it begins to surge.....not completely closed, but enough to richen the fuel mixture (that's all a choke does btw..)
if that helps or clears the problem, your carb is outta whack.....cheaper to buy a new carb than keep taking back into the shop.

Hi men2cu...
Try this method, being you have spark and gas getting to the carburetor...

Get a can of starting fluid, and spray a small amount of it into the carburetor and then try to crank it again...if it cranks and runs then problem fixed...if it cranks and shuts off right away, then you have some trash in your inlet valve in your carburetor.
You can try tapping the carburetor lightly with a hammer and sometimes that will dislodge the float needle if it doesn't dislodge the needle valve then the carburetor will have to be disassemble and cleaned.
Once this is complete your generator should run fine.

My Coleman 5000 generator in storage. Gas tank was drained. New gas put in. Won't start. Gas poured down spark plug hole. l Engine will start but stops and won't start again. Is it a carburetor...


It sounds like your carb needs to be taken apart and cleaned out. The gasoline in the carb sounds like it has varnished and blocked the passages in the carb. I would try some carb cleaner, if you are comfortable in taking apart the carb, you can use the spray cleaner to open the passages. You might have to soak the carb a bit as well.

You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?

We have a Coleman Powermate 5000 generator that won't start


It is really common for generators and things that are not used really often to have the fuel turn to varnish in the gas tank, and carburetor. If it smells like really old fuel, you may be in for a tough time, but before you give up, pour out all the old fuel, and replace it with clean fuel. Then try to choke the engine as you normally would. If it does NOT start and run normally, take the spark plug out, and dip it into the gas tank and quickly put it into the engine, and re-attach the wire and give it a pull. It should hit a few times if you have good electrical fire to the plug. If it starts, kill the engine, and tighten the plug. If it does not start after trying this a couple of times, the carburetor will meed cleaning of the old varnish and jells.
