SOURCE: motor runs wide open but no power from generator

You will need to install new diodes,they are located in the plastic housing behind the receptacles...It looks like little spark plugs..They work to put dc voltage to the rotor,without the exciter voltage applied,you will not get ac power out..The part number is 3483.01....You can buy these online for about $6 each,they have 2 inside the generator,and you should change both.

SOURCE: Backfire Tecumseh Generator

To maybe convert your Flamethrower back to a generator, Make sure the fuel line is a good quality thick rubber material (like OEM )since it passes through the engine,HEAT is a issue, if it has been modified to steel, or it's thin rubber, it will overheat the fuel on its way to the carb and cause backfires after the engine warms up , ( vaporizing gas and pressure bypassing the jets flooding the engine) I use 1/4 inch Goodyear sold at Autozone , one of very few name brand quality parts you can get there. The other possible cause is carbon deposits built up on the leading edge of the valve not allowing the valve to close all the way, just clean the valve, it is caused by too lean or rich carb setting or clogged jets, if it is a newer style carb with a pink main jet then debris in this area will always cause backfire, check and make sure the old tiny O-ring on this jet is not still in the bottom of the shaft, people forget to pull them out all the time or give up trying to pull them out, I use a paper clip and bend the end 1/8 of a inch @ 90 degrees to fish hook it out of there, CLEAN THE SHAFT with carb cleaner and a Q-tip.... A Tecumseh engine will always backfire if the carb or airflow is not perfect and sealed tight !!!!!! it looks simple to rebuild the carb but you must take your time and look close, clean it very well, make sure the jet is SEATED properly and all tiny holes are clean, use guitar string not torch head cleaners as they will enlarge the holes and make your carb run rich.

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.

I have a 10 hp Tecumseh Gold Series Snow Bolwer with 6 forward speeds and 2 reverse and I'm trying to find a owners manual for it, thanks.


If you locate the model number of your motor you should be able to download an Operator's Manual for the motor form this site:

http://www.tecumsehpower.com/

Is this an actual Tecumseh brand snow blower or another brand with a Tecumseh motor installed?

Motor -10 h. p. back fires---have drained the gas line empty --checked the plug- tecumseh


If it's back firing there's really only two probable reasons, the timing is off or you have a problem with the valve train. If it's been sitting a while I'd check for a stuck valve. As far as timing goes I'm not familiar enough with your engine to tell you what to do.

Need to know what oil to use in 10 HP 5000 tecumsah engine - goes on our generator and I lost the manual


It depends on what temperature range the generator will be operating in. Below is a chart from Tecumseh that shows different oils for different temperature ranges. It says on their website to use a high quality brand name oil so you don't have to get actual Tecumseh oil.25b21be.jpg

Is there any way to quiet down my Tecumseh Craft. Gen?


longer exhaust pipe from motor and better muffler. Go with a larger pipe too to allow for better engine performance. You can get a tractor muffler from Tractor Supply that meets your needs.

Switch missing on 10 hp Tecumseh engine that is installed on a


First I have never owned a Tecumseh Tiller. How that got attached to me I don't know. I do have a 10 Hp Tecumseh Engine that I wish to check out if it is good or not before I buy a switch. It has a Brown wire that goes to the low oil shut down sender. It also has a green wire and a black wire. All I need to know is which wires do I need to put together so I can check if the engine is firing or not.
