Hi,
Most problems like this are a fouled inlet in the carb. Try adjusting the carb settings fully in - then back out tooriginal position. This often crushes any debris causing the problem.

Failing that, clean out the carb.

A couple of reasons, the first may be the float is not set properly not allowing fuel to sit at proper height in the bowl, or you may have a leak at the intake.
Please check it out and let me know.

What RPMis the max torque


the chart shows figures of 10.7 hp-8.0kw with a torque of 19.5 ft/lbs- 26.4nm at 2500rpms ( max net torque)
the chart shows gx390 is 11.7hp (8.7kw) but the torque is the same as the gx340
you can get these figures from world. honda com or by going google and typing in--torque range of honda gx 340 motor at max rpms
10 hp engines running at 2500 rpms will be good for gensets of 5kw continuous out put as most makes run that size engine

The running on choke is caused by a fuel restriction. Check the fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor.Change the fuel filter if it has one. If its good, then the restriction is in the carburetor. The generator is shutting down due to the low rpm coming from the engine. A carburetor rebuild may need to be done.

Where can I find an owners manual for a Black Max 8125/ Honda GX390 OHV generator? I searched Honda's site but not there, no black max site. My lawn guy pulled a wire off and I need to see where it is...


low oil sensor will not cause the motor not starting.
most likely is th ground wire.
you can try to attach that wire to any surface and try to start it. of it start, then you have to dis-assemble the head and find out where the wire should be attached.
if not, the wire is attached to a hot side. either way you have to dis-assemble the head.

here is the site for the manual.
