Need to change: 1-Spark plug or 2-The coil.

Posted on Nov 09, 2010

  •  Generator Guru Parts

    To test the coil remove the sparplug and put it back in the cap. Hold the end of the sparkplug on the engine and turn over the generator. If there is a spark then check your fuel system, if not try another sparkplug. If still no spark try these guys for a new ignition coil. www.generatorguru.com

    The other common fault on these is the on/off switch.

The generator wont start. it is a steele 3500 watt generator


Serenity,

First I think you should start by looking at the ignition system.
To find the fault please follow these steps:
  1. Removed the spark plug from the engine and re-attach to the Ignition HT Lead. Hold the end of the spark plug tip to a metal section of the engine, and turn over the engine (you might need a friend to help if your generator does not have electric start). If all is working correctly, you should see a strong spark, and the engine should run smoothly.
  2. If you do not get a spark, you next need to check oil level is at correctly level (to the very top as if about to flow out) and repeat step 1.
  3. If you still have no spark or it stops running within a few minutes of starting, disconnect the oil sensor wire (you will find it on the front coming from your engine just to the top left of the oil filler cap) and try step 1 again.
  4. Still not getting a spark? Then you need to replace your ignition coil. You can order one from us from our website on this page: http://www.generatorguru.com/sp-gg350/?sort=featured
If you are getting a spark, but still having trouble starting the Generator, there is most likely a fuel problem too. We can assist you with the next set of fault-finding tests if you need some help. Let us know how it goes. :)

Homelite hgn 0960a generator wont start no spark


Change Spark Plug. Check The starting Switch with a Multitester if it have continuity.Start it again and check Spark with the spak plug unplugged and with the crankcase check the spark.
Check the oil level. almost all the new and modern generators have included an oil alert gadget that cut off for saving the engine.check oil level and refill if it need.start it again.

Cant start my ust 2300w generator


If there is a spark at the plugs ignition is fine, spraying starter in the intake should allow it to at least fire?? even if you had a carb / fuel issue. I would recommend a compression test and better still a leakdown test to determine if you have weak compression

if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
if it wont turn over then it could be siezed or dropped a valve.

Have a problem with a BS600-W-1 generator


With your model number I could see if it has a low oil safety switch I have seen them go bad (check your oil level )
With all wires un plugged from the coil you should have spark
if not coil is bad .
Use another spark plug to test for spark, ground the side of the plug by holding it against some-ting metal on the engine , spark
plug wire hooked to the plug. leave a spark plug in the cylinder
head so gas wont fly out and hit the test spark plug catching fire (seen it done).
Good luck
