You will have to remove the fuel bowl from bottom of carburetor and clean the varnish out of the carburetor.Take note that the screw on the bottom of the carburetor is a fuel metering jet,there are small passages in it that may need to be cleaned out with a small wire,be careful not to enlarge the holes in it,they are important for fuel metering correctly.You may have to soak it in carb cleaner. Be sure to use good carb cleaner. The brand name Berkebile 2+2 is the best followed by Gumout.

Yamaha 5200d it starts and runs 2/3 minutes and shuts down oil is full low oil lite does not light up carb is clean


This generator is equipped with an auto choke. What is likely occurring is as the engine warms up the choke is returning to the normal choke off run position leaning the mixture two lean to maintain operation of the motor.

This is occurring because the residual fuel that was left in the carburetor has evaporated and the gum residue is reducing the fuel flow through the carburetor. When the choke is applied the mixture is rich enough to support running and as the choke returns on its own to the run position the mixture leans out and the generator stalls..

Override the choke when the engine is starting to falter to confirm the problem. Continuing to attempt to run the engine possibly adding a carburetor cleaner additive to the gas will likely return the unit to normal operation.

If attempting to enrich the mixture by applying choke when the engine begins to falter does not work then a fuel flow problem to the carburetor may be the root cause. I would look for a plugged fuel filter or restricted fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor. What is happening is when the unit is at rest the carburetor is filling with gas and as it is running because of a restricted fuel flow the level lowers in the carburetor bowl resulting in a mixture to lean to run.

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

Generator will start and run with the choke on but stalls when you push the choke off.


Carburetor needs cleaning. You can try adding a gas preservative to the fuel and see if that helps, otherwise start by removing bowl on carburetor and cleaning.

ONAN GENERATOR STARTS THEN ONLY RUNS WITH CHOKE ON


Hi,
This sounds like a problem with fuel settings or dirt in the jet.
If you can find the carb adjustment screws, with it runing on full choke - screw it in fully untill it stalls, then back out to original position, then restart.
Take off choke and adjust setting untill it runs well when warm with choke fully out.
You can then try and make it run leaner without stalling.

It sounds like your carb might have some tarnish built up in it and the jets inside the carburetor are not letting enough fuel through. This is really common among generators and lawnmowers because they sit for so long unused. So what happens is, with the choke "on" you are reducing the amount of air allowed into the fuel/air mixture. As you move the choke to the "off" position, you are allowing more air into the fuel/air mixture but not enough fuel is not being allowed in the mixture so it runs too lean and stalls out. Also, don't use tools to clean the carb jets, they are usually made out of brass and a tool can scar the inside of them and create resistance for the fuel flow. Hope this helps!
