Question about Honda 3000 Watt Portable Generator
Sounds like your carburator might be dirty there are a couple of pin sized holes that can easily become clogged in the carb if you work on them take apart the carb and get some carb cleaner . you will be suprized to see the crud that will collect in the bowl . I go to homedepoe or lowes to the welding section and get a torch tip cleaner its like 3 or 4 bucks it has some tiny wires with ridges on it that will clean out the holes on it .Your carb might have several types of plugs or methods of securing the bowl to the carb some have a bolt with a screw in the middle some just a bolt some have a spring clip . if it is a bolt with a screw in the middle you can remove it and catch the gas as it drains out once empty remove the bolt to release the bowl there i a gascket on the top rim of the bowl remove any debree from the bowl and spray carb cleaner there is prob a yellow residue from the gas that is the oxyidation gas oxyidizes after thirty days .if the nut you took out has two holes in it use th tip cleaner to clean out the hole then look at the float it hinges on a pin that pushes up a little triangular pin that pin has a rubber tip on it it controlles the flow of gas into the bowl if any of the parts are fowled up to bad or rusted go to a lawn repair shop and get a carb kit for your motor get all info off tag or cant get the right parts with all the emissions on the carbs each one is different.once cleaned out put back together if it still runs funny there is another part that comes off the side of the carb it should be a coveer with 4 screws holding it in place on the inside there is a gasket with a spring on it the spring has an aluminum cover to keep from tearing the gasket up replace it with a new one the little flap on the other end act like valves close all back up thenthe screw in the bottom of the carb should be screwed all the way in then un screw 2 1/2 turns and it should be set to about the right flow adjust in or out if it isnt right hopes this helps if you need more help on this leave feed back love to help
