Question about Yamaha 2500 Watt Industrial Inverter Generator YG2800i

2 Answers

I try to start the generator today (rope pull start) and a lot of gas came pouring out from the rubber tube that connects the OHV cover and the air filter. I also noticed that the oil pan (bottom of engine) was full of gas. I would like your view on possible problems with the generator. Thank You

! - Do not try to start it.. With all that gas, could literally blow up.

Sounds like the fuel system is not controlling the gas flow. If Carburator, float valve is stuck open. If it's fuel injected, then the diaphram in the flow control maybe rotted out or otherwise malfuctioning, in both cases, allowing the gas to drain down into the manifold, running into the cylinders, and seep into the oil sump past the pistion rings.

Drain and replace the oil, after looking carefully at the fuel supply system.

Hi, W/D here.

Go at it from the other end. Take the handle off of the rope. If you have a fine piece of wire, attach it securely to the handle end of the rope; you'll use the wire to feed the rope back through in a moment. Wind the spring and starter wheel. When it's getting about as tight as you want it, align the knot hole with the shroud grommet. Feed the pull rope and wire through the knot hole, and out the shroud grommet, and pull the line all the way through, down to the knot. Catch the free end and put a slip knot in it, so it can't whizz on back into the reel. Attach the pull handle, and release the slip knot.
Best regards, W/D

The coil rope broke I would like to know how i can repair it. Generator 5500 watt champion.


If I understand correctly, you have a pull-start generator.

The rope to the pull-start broke.

This happened to us out on the job one day.

Our equipment might be different than yours. Our pull-start assembly is held with 4 bolts. Simply remover those bolts and lift off the cover ... carefully. The rope is attached to something I will call a pulley. The rope wraps around the pulley several times.

Do not lift out the pulley that the rope attaches to >> or the spring that re-winds the rope will come un-sprung (at least it did on our machine). If the spring comes unwound, then you got another job, and have to put the spring back also. Your machine might be different.

Keep pulley in place. Remove rope. Get another rope with same diameter and length and put it in.

Check the carburetor see if all the bolts are tight.check the cylinder head gasket take off plug wire make sure it is away from plug so it wont start. Pull start rope can you hear air being pulled into the engine? if so the head gasket has ruptured or head bolts came lose. Ensure all parts are tight. Ensure fuel lines are not clogged. Check fuel level.

Haven't ran my generator since jan. 07'. Tried to start it and no go???


Can be several things. More than likely stale gas. Take the gas line off of the carb. or the tank. Let all of the gas pour out. Remove the spark plug. Pull the rope over and over until it stops blowing gas out of the plug hole. Replace the hose and fill up with new gas. Is the spark plug wet from gas? You can dry it out with a tourch or a blow dryer. Then plug it back to the wire and let it sit on the head of the motor, so it is getting ground. Pull the rope and see if it sparks. If it does the put plug back in and start it up?????

Where do i find the pcv valve on a 97 sunfire


The PCV (Positive Cranckase Ventilation valve) is going to be on the valve cover. Usually has a rubber hose about 5/8 coning off it and running to the intake.

This is for the 2.2L OHV engine 1997 and earlier... according to Haynes, the 1998 & later 2.2L OHV engines "have an oil/air seperator inside the valve rocker arm cover that requires no maintenance. 2.3L and 2.4L OHC engines are equipped with an oil/air seperator that is attached to the side of the block above the oil filter."

As you are standing in front of the car facing the engine, if you look down at the top of the engine it is in the back lefthand corner of the valve cover. You will see a weird looking 1-1 1/4 inch star shaped nut on a round thing that sort of slopes up out of and toward the back of the engine & has about a 4" tube sticking out of it connecting to the fuel injector? assembly. If it is on too tight to loosen with by hand use a channel locks pliers to loosen it. Then pull the tube out & the pcv valve will be inserted into the end of the tube. Simply replace & hand tighten the nut.

Hope helped (remember comment and rated this).

pour a little raw fuel into carb intake. try to start. if engine runs for a few seconds and quits the problem is more than likely a clogged carb. go to auto store and get a gallon can of carb clreaner and dissassemble carb and lower into bucket and let soak over nite. you'll want to get a carb kit to replace any gaskets that may get messed up during tear down. when you go back together make sure to wash any residue of cleaner out of carb and use a small nozzel air blower on air hose to blow out ALL passages any needle valves have to screw into. take a can of carb cleaner and with the small straw place over hole and squirt into hole. make sure cleaner come out some where in carb body. that way you know all the passages are open. reassemble and crank her up.also invest in a compression guage. remove pllug and screw gauge into plug hole. pull sharply at least 5 times and see what the reading on the guage is. should be at least 70 or better. if rings and valves in good condition don't be surprised at a reading of 120 or better.
