Duromax xp4850eh dual fuel generator runs great on gas not on LP

When I switch to propane the generator runs poorly it misfires and backfires until the engine dies. Duromax sent me a new LP regulator. I installed it yesterday with the help of the head mechanic at my local Propane supplier because they service LP generators and other LP equipment. Their delivery trucks also run on propane. The new regulator installed and the same result.

SOURCE: B & S 12kw home generator - propane gas type

A natural gas generator generally comes with a set up for natural gas only, and can require an inexpensive adapter kit to accommodate the use of propane. You should go for a professional generator check up or call the technician who installed the generator and ask for Generator repairs NJ .

Fuel mixing with oil and filling oil tank and cylinder.


the ethanol gas has a way of ruining the rubber tip on the needle valve (in carburetor). When the rubber tip on that valve or the rubber on the Seat go bad, gas can constantly want to fill the carburetor bowl. so much so that it runs into the engine cylinder and past the Rings to the crankcase.
You can replace the needle valve and seat in the carb which is best OR you can put an in-line shutoff on the fuel line and turn it off when you are not using the generator.
Ethanol gas.. very very bad for carburetors.

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 have a toy hauler with a generac generator propane that wont start getting gas and spark but wont start model 04164-0


Check the comprssion, if you are sure you have a spark and gas. Is the fuel been delivered to the cylinders? Check the fuel solenoid for power, if power is present the demand gas regulator maybe gummed up. LP companies put a waxy lubricant in the gas and over time this can build up and harden in regulators. Also during crank observe the throttle is it going open as it should? if not suspect a control issue

It back fires


If it backfires, check for manifold leaks, fuel mixture is too lean, timing is off, make sure it isn't spitting liquid into the cylinders and the LP is the right pressure, and the vapour coil is working

Can i switch a model RN30 from natural gas to propane?


Only the portable heaters that are manufactured to be used on dual fuel (nat gas/propane) can switch from one to another. If they are made for 1 type of gas only, they are not field serviceable and cannot be converted. Douglas

Top burners are propane. we are used to propane heating really fast. this stove seems really slow. 5minutes to boil litre of water. burners are having hard time lighting.


If it is new fromt the factory, you many have the natural gas (methane) jets in the burners. You will need to check your bag of parts to find the propane parts (LP parts). LP jets allow a different fuel/air mixture to burn at the right heat. Check the owner's manual for details how to make the change.

Please rate me - Good luck.
