I had the same problem. My problem was the oil sensor. Unplug the oil sensor wite and see if it starts. If it does the order a new one, they are about 12 bucks

SOURCE: My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: no electricity from generator

If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

get a can of carbeurator cleaning spray. get a helper and as one of you runs the thing, the other will give it short bursts of carb cleaning spray right into the air intake, leave the filter off while you do this.

SOURCE: My Troy-bilt generator will not generate watts

I have a Troy bilt 7800 13500 generator. It has maybe 40 hrs on it. And It stopped working. I took it into a shop to have it fixed. Repair cost would be $1000.00 I paid 1200 for it. Shop said the 3 main parts of the generator were fried. The Generator was bought in 2005 and only like 40 hrs on it and it is dead. Troy bilt will not help out with the repair because it is to old, yet it has no real run time on it. Now the generator is just a paper weigh

5500 watt generator will not run my 2hp air compressor


5500 watt generator will meet the 1491.4 watt requirement of the 2 hp compressor motor
given that 5500 watts generator is rated continuously at around 4500 watts and will handle spikes to the 5500 watts when electrical components start there should be plenty left
consider the possibility or a motor below full capacity, carby problem ( jets blocked , water, blocked air filter not getting full throttle from the governor lever, worn rings, type of fuel in use --E mix)

Troubleshoot troy bilt generator


Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers Verify that the engine is running at full RPM If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

Wont keep running after start button is released


If the fuel filter is good and lines are good then it sounds like the fuel is making its way to the carb built trash is stopping the fuel from getting into the engine in order to run. Clean out the carb bowl and clean out the valve stem. I know on the Honda unit the valve stem is removed with the carb bowl then then with a striaght screw driver you can remove the Body once you drop the bowl down with the stem so to clean out the cyclinderical body. Good luck

VALSI 5,500 WATT GENERATOR WILL NOT START


All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
