If there was old fuel in there before, you will need to clean the carb the jets are clogged. Or worst case you could have water in the fuel tank but try to clean carb first. Good Luck...

Runs but will not carry a heavy load eng boggs down with load and voltage drops


The engine isn't getting enough fuel. Your carburetor needs cleaning. Generators are notorious for gummed carburetors because of the ethanol alcohol in today's gasoline and the generator sitting idle for weeks, months & even years without use wicks moisture into the fuel. Drain your carburetor of gasoline, & remove the carburetor. Clean your carburetor with Carburetor Cleaner spray & make sure the float needle valve & seat are clear of gum & varnish. To help prevent this from happening again, shut off the fuel petcock at the fuel tank and run the generator carburetor out of fuel before you put it away. It'll help keep the carburetor free of gunk. Also, replace the old fuel in the tank with fresh fuel every 3-6 months.

I have a Yamaha ef1000is generator for less than a year. WhenI push in the choke after starting it shuts down


If you have not properly shut down the unit after use you will have likely had fuel remaining in the carburetor. The fuel will have evaporated while the unit was not in use leaving a film behind. This residue will plug and interfere with the fuel passages and metering orifices of the carburetor. If the unit runs with the choke on it is likely the carburetor is dirty. Be running the engine the carburetor will possibly clean itself. Make sure you remove any old fuel from the machine and replace with fresh. Allow the unit to run for an extended length of time attempting to return the choke to the run position. If you are able to return the choke to the run position you are on the way of solving this problem. You may need to run it additional time to completely purge the residue.

Additives are available to clean the carburetor and as a last resort if running with fresh fuel doesn't' return the motor to normal you may try it. For best results after mixing and running with the additives leave the unit overnight which may help to remove the remaining residue.

The shelf life of gas containing ethanol is about 30 days. In the future it is best to run the unit dry leaving ot fuel in the carburetor.

All else fails you will need to have the unit serviced by a small engine service center.

My repair man is testing the "PC board on my EF2400 generator. It's just been running rough for a while. Figured it's the carburetor, not the guts of it.


I would try rebuilding/cleaning the carb first. If that doesn't resolve the problem, then look at other things like the control board.

Yamaha 5200d it starts and runs 2/3 minutes and shuts down oil is full low oil lite does not light up carb is clean


This generator is equipped with an auto choke. What is likely occurring is as the engine warms up the choke is returning to the normal choke off run position leaning the mixture two lean to maintain operation of the motor.

This is occurring because the residual fuel that was left in the carburetor has evaporated and the gum residue is reducing the fuel flow through the carburetor. When the choke is applied the mixture is rich enough to support running and as the choke returns on its own to the run position the mixture leans out and the generator stalls..

Override the choke when the engine is starting to falter to confirm the problem. Continuing to attempt to run the engine possibly adding a carburetor cleaner additive to the gas will likely return the unit to normal operation.

If attempting to enrich the mixture by applying choke when the engine begins to falter does not work then a fuel flow problem to the carburetor may be the root cause. I would look for a plugged fuel filter or restricted fuel flow from the tank to the carburetor. What is happening is when the unit is at rest the carburetor is filling with gas and as it is running because of a restricted fuel flow the level lowers in the carburetor bowl resulting in a mixture to lean to run.

Briggs and straton 205412-0187e1 runs on full choke only rebuilt carburetor due to surging now it only runs on full choke


This engine came with 2 different carbs. Walbro and Nikki. The Nikki carb has a very fussy float plate! I fight them often! Usually there is a problem with the odd gasket that lifts the flat plastic plate and causes a very low fuel float level in the carb so the only way it stay running is to have the choke on. The main fuel jet on both carbs is up inside the threaded area of the bowl nut. When the main fuel jet clogs...and it only takes a speck of something you also get the symptom of having to use the choke to keep it running.

Main fuel jet is item 117 Nikki or Screwed into item 142 Walbro of the of the above link depending on which carb you have.
The plate I am talking about on the Nikki carb is item 135. The fussy gasket is 137A.

THE threaded area is where all the main fuel supply is drawn from the float bowl. All that must be free of obstructions. Until this is clear and orifices / jets are not obstructed; your going to be running on choke....

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

It's best to run all electronics through a UPS and surge protector. Small generators like the RG-950 are really for small power tools and lighting. The Ryobi RG-950 is only rated 650 watts which really means about 450 watts (70%) for continuous use. In general, a basic desktop or a laptop should be OK. A TV up to 25 inches and a 100w lamp, should be OK. If you try doing both at the same time, expect smoke followed by lights out. A UPS and Surge Protector are a must on small generators due to their poor voltage and frequency regulation. The UPS should be a good quality one that deals with Brownout, Overvoltage, and frequency deviation. ALWAYS USE A SURGE PROTECTOR!

I have a coleman 6250 generator, only runs when i spray fuel into the carb, it about a year old. With a B&S engine


Old gas has probably gummed up the works. You have to store these with an empty tank to avoid this in the future. Using a fuel stabilizer helps too. To fix it, remove all of the old gas. Make sure the fuel cutoff valve is open (it only turns 1/4 turn). If it has a fuel filter replace it. Put in just a little fresh gas in the tank with a bit of carb cleaner. If it still won't run, remove the carburetor bowl and you will see a donut shaped float that operates a valve. Using carb cleaner, clean that valve, and clean the needle valve in the middle of the bowl. Good luck.
