Maybe you took too much out. Lots of new generators have an sensing device that shuts down the motor when there is not enough oil present.

    If still not running check for spark - if ok then you might have to resort to cleaning out the carb - spray some starting fluid in it to see if it attempts to run - if so that confirms that you may have a fuel delivery issue with carb.

    My Oman generator overheats and shuts down if I plug my battery charger in and have my air conditioning on and or coffee maker


    to start with with an air conditioner running (2000 +watts ) plus a coffee machine (1500 watts ) you are looking at 3500 + watts of power used from the generator
    the genset has to be of a minimum of 4500 watts to run full time with out over heating
    never mind what the rating says on the side, that rating is surge rated and the duty cycle is around 500 watts less than that figure
    So if your gen set is 3500 watts the power is at surge power and that will overheat the genset
    Of course you haven't mentioned the rating of the set , but overloading is the main reason for over heating

    Pull start on a 5700 watt generator is locked up. Tech left the fuel shut off ON over night. It filled my oil up with gas. I drained all the old gas and oil out. Refilled it with 37 ounces of 5w30


    Did you remove the spark plugs and drain the fuel from the cylinders? The gas in the oil was definitely a sign that the oil needed draining and replacement, but the pull start may be hydro-locked in the cylinders are full of fuel.

    Champion 3500 generator how to fix stuck float


    It could be a carburetor problem or it may be the low oil cut off switch. Check to make sure oil level is up. If it is check the needle valve attached to the float and the seat. The old carbs used to have a brass seat. Some of the new carbs have a rubber seat and it may need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

    Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!


    You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

    What type of oil do i take for a porter cable 5250 watt electric generator?


    Your generators take ordinary 10W30 motor oil.
    We use these things on the job.
    Don't turn engine upside down or on its side to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor
