How can I shut my Honda eu1000i off from inside the cabin?

I could shut my old Honda recoil start generator off from inside my cabin...we cut a wire on the old generator and were able to run wire to a switch inside the house...so when you went to bed you didn't have to go outside to shut if off, you could just flick the switch. I want to do the same to my Honda eu1000i - how? This is a pretty hi-tech generator...probably has a computer type of inside...I don't want to cut the wrong wire or something.

You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.

My honda 2000 whisperer generator runs then shuts off after about 3 minutes. What could possibly be wrong?


Always use ONLY fresh fuel... (page 32 of owners manual) it is very easy to forget about because HONDA is such an awesome machine... but EVEN MORE LIKELY...

HONDA has a very sensitive self protection device

Your oil pressure cut off switch could be responding to the WRONG OIL...
DIRTY OIL...
LOW OIL or WORSE... OVERFILLED Oil.

Check it out in your owners manual. ((below) http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31Z07610.pdf

RYOBI 1000w Digital inverter generator. ...will not start... we have followed the instructions provided and we cannot get the genny to fire up..... oil level is fine, switches on the correct position,,...


have had the same problem with a Ryobi 1000w invertor generator. The problem that you are experiencing is the low level oil switch. To confirm if this is the problem disconnet the low level oil switch (Yellow or Orange wire). Try and start the generator now, it should start with the first little tug on the recoiler. Once it is running, reconect the low level oil switch and see what happens then. Either it will cut out, then you know it is the oil level switch or it will continue running and the problem will go away. Please ensure you manually check the oil level first before starting.

It starts with the switch fine but when i let go of the key it cuts off


Check for faulty low oil sending unit or oil level low or dirty oil (some generators have a fuel cut-out solenoid at the carb ). Key switch will override the low oil safety. Easy test, remove wire from oil sending unit. If unit runs, and oil has not been changed in a while, service engine and retest.

If you have a voltmeter check what is the voltage in the plugs, or on generator outlets.
If the voltage is at least 5 - 10 V AC Check the fuses, AVR, brushes, rings etc. If OK try to recharge the field with a battery (+, - to be suited) with motor running.
Recoiling is the last to be done if nothing of above mentioned is bad.

I have a Onan 7000 genset in my rv It starts and


Either you have a kill wire ( if I remember it is the brown wire) that is disconnected on one end or the other Or your in coach switch is bad.
Check the switch this way

Remove the switch from the dash/ mounting surface unplug the brown wire - start the genset - ground the brown wire - it should kill the motor
If it kills the motor your switch is bad

My honda gx160 generator keeps cutting out after 2 mins


Sounds like fuel flow is restricted.
Is the vent cap on the gas tank clear?
Pull the fuel hose off at the carb and let run into a container from the tank......is fuel flow good while filling a cup or two worth of fuel?
If not check filter at fuel switch or at hose connection at tank for restriction.
It takes about 2 minutes to use up fuel in the carb with engine running.
Sure sounds like a fuel problem.

I have a 6750W yamaha engine. I drained all of the gas out and replaced it. I am not getting any spark. What can I do? Dan


First how are you checking spark. Spark tester or spark plug against metal? With a spark tester your only testing spark to the spark plug. With the spark plug against metal you do not know is spark is getting to the plug. So it's best to do both and save you time and effort. A spark plug cost less then $3 so I usually replace them when I have a starting problem automatically.

The engine may have a low oil shutdown switch. Check the oil level. If this does not do it, there should be a single black wire coming form either underneith the fuel tank or out of the casing by the recoil that leads to other wires. This should be your grounding wire for the magnito. Disconnect this wire and try to start the unit. If it starts then one of your shutdowns or switches is bad. Reconnect it while it's running to shut it down or push it's connector against the engine block to ground it out. Now if it ran you need to disconnect all wires that connect to this wire and hook them up one by one until you find one that shuts down the engine. When you find it follow it to it's source and that is you problem. If you don't get anything the next step is to remove engine shroud by the recoil (some engines require you to remove the recoil to do this). Now you should be looking a the flywheel and magnito (coil). Did connect the small wire on the magnito and tuck it out of the way so it does not get caught in the flywheel when running. Reinstall everything and try starting again. If still nothing you need to change your magnito. To set the gap on your new magnito a piece of a cigerette box or equivalant between the flywheel's magnetic portion and the magnito should give you the proper gap.


Note: all wires on a small engine are to ground out the spark except a few others on generator which provide power to generator field.
