How do I fix my generator when I get gas in my oil?


This comes from gas getting from the carb when the engine is stopped. The carb will need a good cleaning. Kawasaki has vent tubes just to avoid this when air venting gets plugged. Just saying. ..

Gentron pro2 6000p has no spark


With small engines, ignition is magneto. Four things can cause a lack of spark: (1) Faulty plug - try a new plug; (2) Bad, shorting, or disconnected spark plug wire - check for high voltage from ignition coil; (3) Bad ignition coil - check for low voltage at the coil input wires; (4) Magneto failure - the pickup coils next to the flywheel may be shorted, loose, or disconnected, OR the magnets on the flywheel may have lost their field or come out. I would troubleshoot this problem by checking and eliminating each of these possibilities in the above order. If all of the first three check out good; I'd have a mechanic check the magneto because this requires at least partial disassembly of the motor.

I have a husky 3750 generator about 2 yrs old. It is ony running on choke. As soon as you remove choke, it stops. I have changed oil and gas, clean the spark plug and check the air filter. Any ideas?


The fuel filter is probably partially clogged or the adjustment screw for the fuel mixture on the carb has backed off due to vibration. Try turning in the screw in 1/8 th of a turn at a time every time you start it.

Screws always loosen due to vibration so you only have to adjust in to fix it.

Am unable to start the mower despite new spark plug, new filter & fresh oil. Unfortunately I don't think I used all of last year's gas, although the mower acted like it was out of gas when I let run...


Do you have an in line fuel shut off that you turned off last year and forgot to turn on???
Try and remove the fuel line from the carb. If gas flows out you are getting fuel to the carb.If the above 2 items are ok the problem is in the carb..
I would try next to check for spark. Remove the spark plug and set it on the engine block or any metal. attempt to start , crank the engine . Is there spark?? If not and it is a lawn mower follow the spark plug wire back under the coverThe othe r end is connected to the coil/magneto Replace it . When replacing it ,you will have to gap the space between the coil and the flywheel. I use a business card.
If you have a tractor and no spark make sure the safety sw.s are working properly. Seat sw., brake/glutch sw?,deck sw. engage sw. be fore you change the coil/magneto.
On lawn mowers sometimes mice get in under the cover and nest. they will chew the spark plug/coil; wire.

11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire


If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.

Have a 5600 Gen. with 10 HP B/S engine OHV. Did great during Rita, replaced carb- changed gas-replaced plug- doesn't want to fire it seems. Where Can I find the magneto ? Are there points on the flywheel...


The magneto is by the flywheel. Depending on the age, there maybe points under the flywheel. If so you remove the flywheel and there the points are. Sometimes bugs build cacoons between points, make them inoperable. Newer engines have electronic ignition though. Follow the small wire from the magneto coil ( where the spark plug wire goes) it will either go under the flywheel through a plastic bushing, or to an electronic module. The magneto coils do fail you can test with an ohm meter. Before that test for spark. You can remove the spark plug, and let it rest on the engine to get ground, and turn the engine over. You always need 1-spark, 2 fuel . If you have spark, see if it will hit on starting fluid, if it does, then you have a carb or fuel filter issue. Those shut off valves on the bottom of those tanks, can be a problem

My riding lawn mower won't start. New battery (cables & connections are clean), new filter, plug, rebuilt carb. It's getting spark but won't start? I cleaned the magneto and flywheel. Any other ideas?


Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

WONT START


Not so many reasons she won't start. 4-Strokes are Simple!

Here they are:

Motor:
Fuel Tank-> Fuel Line-> Fuel Filter-> Carb-> Intake (Valve)-> Piston-> Exhaust (Valve)-> Muffler

Carb (Old Style):
Fuel Side:
Fuel Bowl-> Float-> Needle Seat-> Fuel Ports (Venturi)
Air Side:
Air Filter-> Carb Air Intake-> Butterflies (2)
(Clean 'em ALL!)

Hardware (Motor):
Rotor (Magnets)-> Magneto (Ignition Coil)-> Spark Plug Wire-> Spark Plug-> Cylinder Head (Spark Plug Ground)

Ignition:
Kill Switches (Seat, Clutch, etc.)-> Spark Plug/Ignition Coil-> Ground
Key Ignition-> Battery->Starter/Generator

If one of those fail.......= Non-Starting 4-Stroke!

Fixes-
Fuel:
You are either getting too much, or too little. Too much = Carb.
Too little = Carb. Therefore, tear down the Carb (COMPLETELY-Careful!) and clean it up.

Electrical:
Grounding out the System (Kill Switches)
Battery-> Ignition-> Starter.
Magneto->Plug Wire->Plug (Check 'em all!)
