If it is a diesel, bleed the fuel lines at the injectors. Also verify the fuel valve is opening. If it doesn't, the bleeding operation will show that as well.

The tiniest bit of air in the fuel lines prevents the injectors from getting fuel.

If the unit is gas engine driven, check all the usual things, spark, fuel, etc.

2004 waverunner fx cruiser, ran great last time out. Now hard to start and wont run on high speed. Nothing over 6 mph.


How old is the fuel? Ethanol causes major problems if left too long. You may need to empty the fuel and clean out the fuel system. Try changing the fuel filter and adding some seafoam to the fuel and running seafoam thru the fuel system. Hopoe this helps.

If it has been sitting to 6 years then the gasoline is no longer any good. Drain the fuel tank first thing. Remove the float bowl from the carburetor and drain the fuel and clean it out. Put in fresh fuel and try to start it. If it still will not start try using starter fluid to see if you can get it going. You may in the end have to disassemble the carb and clean it out.

I have an EB6500 that was sitting for a while. When I started it it ran fine then after 3 minutes the generator head smokes and you get that electronic smell,even without turning on the main breaker.


Is that all you ran it was the one time? Sounds like a mouse. Or bugs got in there and built a nest, something just burning off. Get the air gun on that thing and blow it out, then try it again, hopefully it is just dust and dirt piled up in there.
