You have a problem with the carb float valve. It is no longer sealing causing fuel to continue to flow into the float bowl after it is full. It may be dirty, out of adjustment or just need to be replaced because old and worn out.

Generac 4000xl runs a few minutes then acts like it's seizing up


Eeeeeeek! Thats not good! Sorta like a grinding sound? If it's under warranty take it in! Might be the "winding" where the electric is created.

This sounds like the float is sticking in the carb causing it to flood . You need to take the carb off and clean it and put a kit in adjusting the float per the instructions

15000kw hard to start and when it does sounds flooded. turn it off and it starts fine, then turn it off again and acts flooded again. once it starts and runs it will only let you turn on a few


Because it is bad fuel has prevented the float from operating to shut down fuel and unit is running rich that's why it wont power up right don't put fuel cleaner in it now it will only get worse carburetor needs to be taken off and cleaned. get the manual for unit at dealer. you can do it yourself if you are careful ( fuel now days needs a stabilizer in it Amzoil makes the best. It's called PI improver .
when you lay up a machine for the season you need to have this in the fuel ) ethanol messed up shelf life of gasoline try 14 days sitting and you have a problem.

Briggs & Stratton 4 cycle Lawnmower engine no fuel from carberator. Fuel is being supplied to carberator but only runs when starting fluid is used. Gas is new. What's clogged?


the float may be gummed up. or the needle is plugged up.
you need to clean the carburetor, old gas left in the carburetor turns
into shellac and gums up in side. you need to take it apart and clean it.

What should I do with my husqvarna 130BT because I put in too much oil with the gas and it won't start?


First, you need to dump all of the fuel out of the gas tank, Preferrably into a gas container. If you know how much oil you dumped in, you can calculate how much more gas to add. You could also just dump the gas, re-mix some new gas and oil, whichever you prefer.

If you are comfortable doing this, remove the fuel lines going to the carberator and let them drain into a pan. Pump the fuel primer to purge the gas out of the carburator, and then re-install the fuel lines. This might help you get it started a little faster, but its not necessary. You can burn the old gas in the engine at it will be fine.

Next, remove and replace the spark plug. Its probably fowled out with too much oil. Keep a can of carb cleaner and a small wire brush handy, you may need to clean the spark plug a couple times. If it gets too dirty, you can replace the spark plug with a new one. Do not burn Carb Cleaner in your engine for long periods of time, it will damage the engine.

After you have installed the spark plug and put some correctly mixed gas in the tank, Try to start the engine again. There will be some residual fuel in the fuel lines going to the carberator, so you will need to burn off that gas.

If you can't get it to start, try these steps:
Choke off, throttle wide open, crank several times. (or let it sit in the sun for a couple hours) (this corrects flooding)
Prime carberatur, Choke full on, throddle idle position, crank until it fires once but does not start.
Choke half, crank until it fires again or starts.
If it starts skip this step: (Choke off, crank until it starts).
Keep the choke on half for about 10 seconds and let it idle.
Put the choke off and let the engine warm up for a couple minutes.
After warmup, test the throttle to see if it will run at full throttle (it may take some fluttering until the engine is fully warmed up)

Let the engine run at full throttle for a few minutes. The exhaust may be a little more blue-smokey than normal...this is the excess oil burning...totally normal and harmless.

My car is not starting anymore the plugs keep getting soak with gasoline does anybody know why?


The fuel soaked plugs are what's called "flooding". You need to troubleshoot the ignition system, my guess is that you're not getting spark to fire the cylinders. Was this a gradual thing or did it just fail one day?

I have a Generac 15000 watt portable generator. It cranks great, but will not start. The plugs are wet, doesn't seem to be getting any spark. Have replaced plugs, any suggestion.


I have solved the flooding problem . unfortanetly you must remove the carb to fix it. once you remove the carb you need to remove the fuel bowl. In the bottem of the fuel bowl there is a electronic seloniod that controols the amount of fule going to combustion. this aria had varnish and gunk built up around the plunger of the selonoid, long story short clean this out with carb and chook cleaner and put it back together. start her up and she will run like a champ.
