I hope I can Help!
Is this the manual that you are looking for? If so, you should be able to download it in chrome or firefox quite easily. Just let the pdf load (it will take a minute). Then, hover your mouse near the bottom middle of the page. You should see a little toolbar come up. You can print or save it from there. I would send you the file directly, but cannot do so here. Let me know if that helps!

The problem when that happens is usually a loss of residual flashing the generator you can recharge the permanent magnets, and then the generator will work again.

I have a homelite 720 generator but cant fingd the instruction manual and i need to know if the charger leads only charge a battery or can be used as jump leads i know this might sound stupid but i wo

I can't find any reference to a Homelite model 720 generator but most battery charging systems do not supply enough amps to run a car starter. Battery chargers usually work in the two (trickle) to ten amp range. Car starters need way more amps to have enough power to turn an engine over, depending on the size and number of cylinders in the motor. Some chargers have a switch with a 60 amp 'start' position to help the battery turn the motor over, but without that there is little chance the charger side of your generator will supply enough amps to help your battery.

Please list your model number when posting and I might have found part number for you.

Go to service and support, find parts, parts locator, model # if you cannot find model number go to product line, homelite, then select generator, without model number you will have dozens of generators to look at.

Homelite 2500 pwer generator won't keep running when cord put into it

The load may be too much for the generator. Remember that some loads, especially those with motors driving a machine (like air compressors) require much higher startup power than what is listed on the nameplate. General rule of thumb is to allow 2-3 times nameplate rating for generator rating. For example. If your air conditioner is rated as 800 watts, then you would want a genreator AT LEAST 2400 watts to start and run the compressor.
