My 7000 watt stand by gen. did not start when the elec. went out. It can be started both manually and on auto but only runs for about a minute then shuts off. It has propane and the oil is okay. What next?

Check the Filter. If clogged it will not start. Also drain the fuel and inspect it. If the mix is off or if there is oil in it when there shouldn't be then that could be the problem.

Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator

ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

Bought anew all power 1000 watt gen. mixed oil and gas runs a few minutes and locks up but will start back

Hi James:
Most stationary engines are 4 cycle which means you don't mix oil with the gas.
I'd suggest that you CHECK YOUR OWNER"S MANUAL .
I might be wrong, but I'd sure want to know.

I have a Briggs and Stratton home stand by generator 7000 it starts in manual but wont start in auto engine just cranks but wont start

make sure gas valve is open, and run switch is ON. I'm not a fan of B&S engines. I have a Generac generator with NO problems.Pull start the unit and let run for 5 mins. Turn off. Now try the electric start.If it does not start, you have an elctical problem when using starter. Make sure battery is fully charged before starting. Hope it helps.

Really silly questions now!

If it is an auto box! have you got in any gear other than Park??
Have you checked the immobiliser????
Crank angle sensor is ok?????

I've experienced problems with Jag's in the past! this sounds crazy but check that the coolant temp sender is not worn out and shorting on the bonnet liner! sounds crazy but this has hapened before! shorted out the entire ignition system!

I have a eu3000 overload safety shuts it down at about 1100 watts

Can you verify the amp draw on the output? This gen should handle 25 amps continuous. I wonder if you actually have a bit more that 9 amps? It would be nice to check the frequency and volts too...A Fluke multi-meter can read these values.

Generac Generator won't stay running

fuel problem, the float in the carborator is stuck, if you tap on the carborator bowl it will probably get freed up.if not take the bowl off and spray the insides with carb. cleaner.

All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
