Hi, sounds like derty fuel, you will need to check and clean air and fuel filters; also wash your carbretta out with lean fuel. Drain fuel tank and replace with fresh fuel.

Drain the remaining fuel from the tank Put in just a little fresh fuel mixed with carb cleaner. Run the engine (with choke). Repeat until it runs right. When you store the unit you should empty the tank. Using a stabilizer like Sea-Foam helps the shelf life of gas considerabley.

    My 6000 watt Champion Power Equipment generator has been sitting for well over 6 months. I replaced the carb, fuel filter w/petcock, put in new gas and it still lopes. Runs fine with choke on. Starving for gas, but why?

Cannot start the generator


when was the last time it ran?
If you didn't run it out of gas the last time you used it and it sat for a few months, the Carburetor is gummed up.
You can thank the wonderful idiots that think Ethanol Gas is a good idea

ONAN GENERATOR STARTS THEN ONLY RUNS WITH CHOKE ON


Hi,
This sounds like a problem with fuel settings or dirt in the jet.
If you can find the carb adjustment screws, with it runing on full choke - screw it in fully untill it stalls, then back out to original position, then restart.
Take off choke and adjust setting untill it runs well when warm with choke fully out.
You can then try and make it run leaner without stalling.

Check your tank for contaminants (water, trash, dirt, monsters, etc), as well as the balance of the fuel system. You may also need to remove the carburetor and clean it out, particularly if the generator has sat for more than a month with fuel in it (most do, including mine) and now has deposits. The only thing that the choke does is make the mixture rich by cutting off the air.

And just for grins, look at the spark arrestor screen on the muffler. This can be related and problematic as well.
