Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Have a Honda 1000 generator and it lopes even after it warms up. Moving the choke lever closer to choking stops the lopping but that does seem right. Sounds like it is isn't getting enough fuel but not sure? Could old fuel cause this problem?

By loping, assume you mean surging? I fixed that problem on my larger generator by making sure the fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel filter, carburetor, bowl, etc were all clean and free of contamination, old/varnish, jets clean, etc. I used spray carb cleaner very carefully and compressed air, and seemed to get most of it, although they do sell cleaner kits with those wire sets that work better.

Choke problems on my Honda GCv160e lawn mower engine


the choke action is to increase the vacuum through the carby and so pull more fuel into the manifold the choke is only used for starting and partially opened until the manifold warms up enough to vaporize the fuel in the mixture after that it has to be fully open
having it on all the time will draw too much fuel into the manifold and that will tend to come out into the filter or drip past the throttle shaft
if there is a hole in the choke lever, then put one end of a light spring in ti and find/make a section that bolts onto the carby base bolts or off the motor so that there is just a bit of tension on the spring to hold the choke open
the end fitting may be directly under the choke shaft so that the choke is either on or off with the spring holding it in either position ( over center action)
honda have a problem with the needle in carbies as it wears after around 200 hours and will not sit properly in the guide and so will not seal off properly

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

I just bought a 1999 Honda Aero and it did not come with an owner manual. Where is the choke on this bike. Is there any free down loads with "getting started" on the Honda Aero/shadow of this...


The choke is on your left hand handle bar, it is the black slide down lever. 1. Push the lever inward to choke the bike 2. give the throttle two turns and start the bike. ( do this so you don't drain your battery, even with a new battery you need give the bike the gas to start or you will have to recharge the battery) You will hear the engine change pitch when it warms up, push the choke upwards and the bike should idle on its own.

Honda mini tiller cuts off when start tilling. runs great when held above ground with no load. cut off seems to be associated with the movement and shacking when tilling ground.


Hi thermo259, sounds like the high speed adjustment is lean, find the high speed screw and turn it counter clockwise 1 half turn and see if that helps. Should cure it.

How to start a gas generator (should the choke be in or out, to the right or the left before starting


Most Generac generators have a lever for the choke that pulls out. So if the generator is being started for the first use or cold you should choke when starting . Let it run for 30-45 sec. then push it in . Once the engine has been run or warm you dont need to choke every time when starting .

My 2006 Honda VTX1300 starts fine with the choke lever pulled out part or all of the way, but after engine is plenty warmed up, if the choke lever is pushed back in, the bike immediately dies.


your carbs not getting enough fuel check the bowl and jets. I run a pice of wire down the jets even if they look open just to be sure. Speaker wire strands work well for the tiny holes

Eu2000i lopes while idling. If i slide the choke


This is NOT uncommon when no load is on the units.

The "gain" of the govenor is designed for maintaining speed under load and will "hunt" a bit without a load on the unit.

Hi my honda generator runs for a couple of min then turns off this seems to happen more when its cold but happens when warm just not as much anyone have a idea of what it is


First off, Jason, what is the model number of your generator? It helps to know what product you're having trouble with so the correct information can be provided to you to help you solve your problem.

It sounds like the choke is staying on after starting. If you have an automatic choke, check for free movement of the choke spring and lever assembly (behind the carb). If it's a manual choke, remember to push it in once the engine is running smoothly (after 20 seconds).

It could be a fouled sparkplug or clogged air filter element too, but, again, without the model number it is very difficult to solve your problem.

You need to go to the Honda website and download a copy of the owner's manual for your specific generator and follow the step-by-step instructions for operating and troubleshooting your generator.

Here's the link to get your free online owners manual:

Hope you find this info Very Helpful and best regards!


The following helpful basic steps are from Honda:
To start your generator:
  1. Review your owner's manual to ensure familiarity with your generator's controls and operation.
  2. Move the generator outside.
  3. Check the fuel level and add more fuel if necessary.
  4. Check the oil level and add oil if necessary.
  5. Check the air filter and clean if necessary.
  6. Turn the circuit breaker off.
  7. Turn the fuel valve on.
  8. Start the generator.
  9. Allow the generator the warm up for a few moments before turning the circuit breaker on.
  10. Connect the appliances or the transfer switch if applicable.
