Johnny,

If generators are not used regularly, they need the their magnetic field to be charged (or flashed). This can be done by plugging an electric motor into the socket while the generator is running and spin the motor by hand. The hand-spun motor will push some electric current back into the generator and magnetize it enough to start it.

Look in the manual. There is likely something about field flashing the magnetic fieldgenerator starts with and runs great, but theres - 2.gif. The easiest way to do this is to.
1) start the generator
2) plug an electric drill into the generator (without drill bit)
3) make sure drill is set to forward direction (if a reversable drill.
4) pull the trigger on the drill.
5) If the drill does not start, spin the drill's chuck clockwise (When looking down at the chuck from the drill bit end). Spin counter-clockwise if holding it like a pistol and pointing away from yourself.
6) Do this several times (hard) until the the generator will kick in and suddenly make the drill spin at full speed.
Be careful not to drop the drill or poke someone with it as you celebrate success.

I have a toy hauler with a generac generator propane that wont start getting gas and spark but wont start model 04164-0


Check the comprssion, if you are sure you have a spark and gas. Is the fuel been delivered to the cylinders? Check the fuel solenoid for power, if power is present the demand gas regulator maybe gummed up. LP companies put a waxy lubricant in the gas and over time this can build up and harden in regulators. Also during crank observe the throttle is it going open as it should? if not suspect a control issue

Hello all, I just bought a Little tiles haul and ride (612442). While assembling, the part F was latched on to part B (by mistake) before I could put in the parts D and E. So I now basically have part B...


What I know of Little Tikes is that they are snapped on to complete the a toy. They don't make any permanent attachments to easily assemble and disassemble them. If you're having a hart time removing that part, I suggest you bring it back to the toy store where you bought it and maybe they have a personnel there who can help you.

Honda ems 4000 generator starts and runs great, but no power


The plunger is stuck where the governor rod which is spring attached to the frame is. If you locate the governor metal rod on the lower level of the unit. zrock it to a higher rpm as you would a car carburator from under the hood.
This will free the plunger and the green light will go on and your current meter will register 120 volts.

When you lay up the generator for quite some time it often sticks closed. With monthly start up you will no have this problem reoccurr.

Go to the auto parts store and buy a "Battery Tender" solar powered, or get an electric trickle charger. Or install a battery disconnect for the period the unit is not in use; you can disconnect the battery.

Heat is killing your transmission. Change the transmission oil and filter and slow down. Pulling something that heavy is best with a manual transmission.
