The recommended spark plug is an NGK B6ES plug, you can buy it for just $4.18 with free shipping and not tax from the link I will provide at the bottom of my answer here. This is definitely the best plug for this generator, and is recommended by the manufacturer as well...

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

Generator starts with 1 pull and runs 5 seconds then shuts off. Carb is clean inside.


Must be something wrong with the governor or the links near the carb. Check the springs and linkages. These are usually at fault. If thereafter you still don't find something, must be the jets on the carb. One of it maybe a little dirty.

Hi, I recently purchased a used makita 6100r generator and when checking it out I discovered on my 30 amp 220 receptacles arent getting full power. I took out the receptacle and checked the wires in back...


You may be asking too much of the unit; the 5800 watts a which it is spec'd, may be a 'peak' power rating which may be 15-20% higher than its continuous rating. 30 Amps at 220 volts implies 6600 watts which is higher than even the peak power rating. I would expect the unit to produce ~4800 watts continuous or around 22 Amps.
Decided to check my statements and found this, which I quote:
Generator Volts AC (60Hz) 120/240 Max. Output Current 5800W-48.3A/24.2A Rated Output Current 4800W-40A/20A Volts DC (AMPS) 12 (8.3)

Low output about 60 vac.


On the bottom right side of the engine there's a throttle with a set screw. This set screw is a fine adjustment for voltage control. The lever should be pushed until the set screw makes contact with the stop plate. Using a voltage meter, adjust the set screw until you hit 110 volt and then lock the set screw. I just bought the same generator, it was putting out 85 volts. Witha phillips screwdriver a wrench and a multi meter, I had 110 volts in less than 2 minutes. It now operates flawlessly.

hi there
pauly46 here

sounds like you will need to remove carby and give a good clean and soak for a while
to remove to green gum / varnish causes blockage of passageways and fuel needle valves to stick and remain open / or closed as well as making it run funny if it runs and flood as you mention

note do not soak any longer than 20 to 30 mins in a carb type cleaner solution as these can attack
non metallic parts and runin them , use compressed air to clean passageways and jets

blow some brake cleaner through them to , if the unit still floods after this , replace the fuel needle valve and seat

here is web site for parts list and parts ordering on line

hope this helps

Auto idle does not work propertly on makita g 6101 generator


The battery charging is also a load. If the battery is not well charged or old it may need about 60 - 120 W to charge, which is not "Idle".

Will not start


Do you have spark to the plug, do you have the fuel valve shut off? have you cleaned the air filter? is the govenor free? is the spark plug clean? if so make another post and I will give you some more points.

Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run


Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Makita Generator no power


Hi Laurence,
Hope you had as good a holiday as I did :-)
Yes the squareish thing in there is a kind of voltage regulator. More correctly, your brushless generator is using this capacitor to regulate output voltage by means of a resonant circuit between a winding on the stator and this part. The short answer is that you more than likely need a new one and because of its particular shape the only realistic source of the new one is Makita.

I disagree with the service tech about the testability of the thing, my Fluke 112 DMM has a capacitance function that would let me tell if your capacitor was shorted ( 0 mfd reading), open (infinate mfd reading), or some value that could be compared to whatever "known" one was applicable. In this case I'd take a loose guess that the reading of a good one is something like 20 - 100 mfd, but that's just a guess.

let me know if the new capacitor doesn't get it,
Carl
