Question about Garden

1 Answer

Just bought used yamakoyo SH 7000 DXE power generator. IT was used very little but sat up for a year. I filled it with gas and found leak in carburetor. I removed carb. cleaned lines taped on float bowl it stopped leak. It started up and seamed to run fine .i plugged a fan into it to make sure it was putting out power. I was working out side next to it so i left it running . It made a sound like something tiny hit a fan. at this time it was still running but stopped putting out power. like a dummy I shut it down with the choke.instead of the key. now the starter will not turn it over it just clicks. when you pull the cord it back lashes on you . it did started a time or two by pulling the cord about half way out slowly then pulling but only ran for a second or two. i also need operator manual

Okay, this is a dumb question but I have to ask; did you change the oil in the motor before you started it? If you did not, there is a 99% chance the piston, rings, and connecting rod are shot, which explains the lash of the cord and the electric start would also act as you describe about the cord pulling out halfway slowly then yanking it.

If the engine was running but stopped putting out power after you heard that noise like you said, that would indicate an internal breaker popped in the generator assembly. I do not have an operator's manual but I am going to provide you some links to help put you in the right direction.

The links that have kbnusa will take you directly to Yamakoyo, their 800 number is listed so you can call for service. The parts and schematic diagrams will also help you troubleshoot.

Please let me know here whether or not this was helpful...please also realize that since I cannot see the generator physically I am limited in what I can do for you.

If you require me to go further in depth, just let me know here by posting a comment, ok? Hope this helps, Good Luck!

My troy built 7000 generator is leaking gas. I replaced a gasket but it is still leaking. HELP!!!

With generators sitting long term not use carburetors tend to get gummed and need a good cleaning and depending how bad this gumming and corrosion is either a carburetor repair kit or carburetor will be needed.

It best to use a good fuel stabilizer in the fuel for short term storage and for long term to shut the fuel flow off and run the generator until it uses up the fuel in the carburetor.

How is the carbeurator bowl on an ONAN Marquis 7000 genset removed? I think it sat too long without Stabil and became clogged. It appears to be, maybe< pressed on as there are no visible holdong

They are generally sealed, as it affects the mixture. You can take the carb off, put on the bench and remove the shut off solenoid at the bottom of the bowl, remove black cap on main jet, remove screw, and unscrew the bowl. To set back up you will need to ideally check on a load bank, for ability to pick up full step load,

Won't start.

Hi raw 28:

ther gas that was in the carb probably evaporated. you might tryt a little spray starter fluid in the spark plug hole or in the air intake of the carb, This might just get it running long enough to draw gas into the carb and get it self sustaining,

Good luck Loringh
