If you don't wish to tear into it just yet, you might try removing the spark plug and soaking the cylinder with penetrating spray.
Be patient and treat it several times. DO NOT try to start it when it frees up. The penetrating oil will have the engine oil contaminated, so do an oil change after it is free and then try to start it.
Also, don't assume that the engine is the source of the problem. If the inverter is oxidized it can have the same effect. Same treatment might free it up on that end of the machine.
Hope this helps.

Why can't i run my a/c with honda 3000is generator


This generator will run an a/c unit up to 13500 btus and is good for 2800 watts. This is a small generator, the nameplate rating numbers need to jive before overloading the energy supply.

I have a Honda 3000IS generator that only produces ~50 volts from the 30A receptacle--the other receptacles work fine, as does everything else on the machine. How do I get full voltage out of this...


I would guess that this uses both of the 15 amp breakers to make the 30 amp circuit. Try carefully measuring the voltage at the back of the 30 amp outlet after pulling it out. You may have a bad socket. look at how it's wired behind the panel too and see if there are wires from the other sockets to this one. If so, check all connections between them. If you still can't figure it out, try to get a picture of the panel and the wiring behind it and send it to Shelomah@i-can-fix-that.com

I have a 3000is not starting. Has gas spark oil.


Use fresh gas! Dont just pour some on top of the old...Change it out.

Drain the carb bowl (Honda carbs have a drain screw slightly off-center of the bowl bottom).

The Honda EU3000is uses a vaccuum-operated fuel pump and old gas will ruin it also.

Take the fuel supply line off the carb inlet, direct it in a container and spin the engine over. It should pump a stream that is FULL LINE DIAMETER.

If still no start, take it to an AUTHORIZED Honda Power Equipment Dealership.
Find one here.

Hope this helps.

Battery in a honda 3000is


The battery is behind one of the end plastic casing pieces. You have to remove the center plastic panel, then remove the bolts holding the handle in place, and then remove the small, lower metal panel. I don't remember if it is on the side where the exhaust opening is or not, I believe it is on that same side.

My trace inverter SW2512 will only allow pass through power.


First problem is caused by the new generator producing too high a frequency... 65 Hertz is above the inverter limit. Adjust the governor down to 60 or 61 Hertz.
Breaker tripping may be due to excessive current draw from the Honda. Check the max AC input menu on the inverter. It might have been set lower to avoid overloading the original generator but if DC power was turned off at any time while you were changing generators, the inverter would have returned to it's default settings which may exceed the Honda's capacity.

Honda EU3000is generator will not start with electric starter.


I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.
