Question about Garden
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 problem...it 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!
