My petrol generator is spitting flames.

I have a petrol generator and it has just been serviced. however, when ever it is running for longer than 2 mins it really over heats and spits flames. i have tried adjusting the fuel amount to the engine. any other ideas to stop this? thanks.

I would check the floats in the carb. Be careful when pulling the bowl and float, you dont want to loose the pin and needle. If the float has gas in it, it wont be able to work properly so you will have to replace.

Hello my cpi Aragon GP 125. Model 2012 when been on a run sometimes the carb spits petrol back through the air filter.l have to disconnect the air filter to empty it, then it will start again.??


Hi, Bryan spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is set to lean.

Honda gx160 petrol generator,gets very hot on the muffler,then starts to backfire and flames come out of the exhaust on the muffler


You need to get the exhaust away from the generator (heat shield) because it is getting to hot and this will cause it to backfire

Generator back firing from inlet manafold


Your symptoms are from running lean. Foam air filters put debris in carb jets. Check all the carb passageways and jets. Always start with a new plug.

GAS FIREPLACE SOMETIMES TURNS ON AND SOMETIMES NOT. ALSO, IT CAN BE ON AND THEN THE FLAME GOES OUT BUT A FEW MINUTES LATER COMES ON. SUGGESTIONS?


This is a typical situation for a warn Powerpile generator. Your fireplace works by this generator generating heat from your pilot flame and converting it to less than 3/4 of a volt or 750mv. Your gas valve will eat up half of this electricity when running. So when you Powerpile gets warn it might only generate 400mv and when the gas valve turns on will bring it down below 200mv. This will start to drop once the main burner turns on and once below 150mv is no longer able to power the gas valve resulting in the main flame to go out. Minutes later the generator will build its power up again and repeat the cycle. The generator looks a little thicker than a crayon and has a red and white wire coming off it. They are easy to change but the tight spaces on a fireplace can make it very difficult.

I have a californian imported yamaha virago 700 leaking petrol down throgh the exhaust and spitting out when running can you tell me what could be happening thanx


It sounds like you have a dead cylinder. Without that cylinder firing, the petrol just builds up and spits out of the cylinder and into the exhaust.

Reddy heater r60


with the top off see if there is an obstruction between the fan and the back of the heater chamber.  also mounted on the backside of the combustion chamber is a hi limit with two wires coming out of it.  this connects to the flame detector which is in the flame path.  it is a copper cappillary with two spade connectors on it.  once a flame is detected, it generates a millivolt signal that opens and maintains the main gas valve. 01e527f.jpg
