    find out where the carburator is,,,,you may have to take off a cover or two,,,but in most cases you should be able to see the carb,,,,on the arm where the linkage rods hook to the CARBURATOR ,,,there should be a phillips screw head,,,with machine running take a screw driver and rotate screw counter clockwise until high idle comes down to desired speed,,be careful not to go to far or generator will not produce enough power at a low SPEED setting and will burn out your brushes inside the generator itself .

2013 Honda Activa will not idle when warm


Hi, P and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

Hello, my Briggs & Stratton generator, PP5000, Intec, 8 hp, Model 202412, type 0167E1, has lower power output, 180 Volts in stead of 220-230 Volts. Any idea where I should look ? Engine is 8 years...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Usually when you have a lower voltage output that is yet above 150 VAC the problem is as simple as the engine is no longer running at full speed. This could be caused by binding carb or governor linkages but more often than not the Governor adjustment screw has backed off over time causing the engine to gradually slow so the output voltage drops. The user does not notice it so much until the output drops more than 15% and you notice dim lights... slower running equipment etc.

Look for a circular plate / governor speed plate near the base of the governor lever but off to one side that has a spring that attaches to the governor lower end of the governor. There should be a screw with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise to increase engine speed. (You may have to barely loosen the pivot nut on the governor speed control adjustment plate to make the speed adjustment.... tighten when done with speed adjusment) Watch your output voltage and adjust the voltage to 225 VAC with NO LOAD. The voltage will drop as loads are added. Make sure to tighten the lock nut on the adjusting screw or in a matter of an hour you will have low voltage again from engine speed dropping. What ever you do.... DO NOT adjust the governor arm base attach point where it attaches to the engine.

Just so you know a weakened governor spring can cause the speed drop also. If the speed keeps dropping with extended use, you may have to change the spring that goes from the lower end of the governor arm to the governor speed adjustment plate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a john deere 70 1974 with a 7 horse power tecumseh how many times to i turn the either jets on the carb


The bottom screw on the carburetor is the main fuel mixture screw, turn this "in" slowly until is "seats" and then back it out two turns. The idle mixture screw is located on the side (do not confuse with the idle speed screw), turn this in slowly until it seats and then back it out one turn. This will get you in the ballpark but it will have to be fine tuned from their. The proper adjustment is between a "lean" running condition (engine will try to cut off) and a "rich" running condition (engine will load up). The main fuel mixture is adjusted at full throttle position and the idle mixture screw is adjusted at idle speed. Once this is done, you can adjust the idle speed screw in the low throttle position. Hope this helps.

My 13 hp ohv 5 speed 38" cut tractor dies after mowing for 10 or 15 minutes and will not restart until it cools off. i have changed fuel filter and cleaned the air filter and have also made sure my gas cap...


Just maybe, since this is an OHV engine, the valve lash needs adjusting. Your are possibly seeing the results of poor clearance when the machine heats up and the metal valve train expands, Then after cooling, the train is within tolerance again, allowing the engine to start and run. Check into adjusting those valves.

I have a 452 echo. lost the manual in a move. the boys 8-9 decided to tune up the saw and now I can't get it running...can you help me with the begining setings..Thanks John


Likely, they have adjusted the H and L jet needles and maybe the idle speed screw. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should let the engine start and run. Start the engine and let warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H jet needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet needle CW for better idle, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but allows the engine to continue to run. Hope this helps!

Adjustment for carbuerator on Poulan Pro Chain Saw/ Model 221/ 40


Are the jet screws fitted with slot heads or 'D' heads? 'D' heads require a special tool to adjust and are not available to the general public, so you are stuck with taking the saw to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Slot head screws can be turned with a small flat-blade driver by anyone. In case you have owner-adjustable heads, try the following: Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out 1-1/2 turns CCW. The engine should run with this basic setting. Warm up the saw, then pull the throttle full on. Turn H needle CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow-the-throttle'. Adjust idle speed so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

I have a older model # 30 jiffy ice auger and i can not seem to keep it running consistanly. I was wandering what the carburator adjustments are. The low idle screw and the high idle screw where do I start...


Hello Randy. I can talk you through making adjustments to your Jiffy ice auger engine.
1. Read through the whole list before you start adjusting.
2. Close both jets GENTLY
3. Open the Low speed 1/4 turn
4. Open high speed jet 1 1/4 turn
5. Start engine.
6. Adjust low speed until idling smoothly.
7. Open her up wide open.
8. Adjust High speed until engine transitions smoothly from idle to high speed without bogging.
9. Shut engine off. Let it cool.
10. Once engine is cold. Fire it up and let it idle for 30 secs. Open it up wide open again. Adjust if necassary.

NOTE 1: The trick with the Jiffy's is to tune them during cold (ice fishing) weather.
NOTE 2: Low speed screw,the one on the left.
NOTE 3: High speed on the right.

Good luck ice fishing! Regards, Joe

Furnace runs on utility power but not on back up generator power


I had the same problem with a GH8 Goodman. In the instructions for the furnace are the sentences, "1.Measure resistance between the neutral (white) connection and one of the burners. 2. Resistance should measure 10 ohms or less." Mine was .2 ohms with grid power. It was in the Meg/ohms when on the generator. I made a special extension cord to open the ground at the female end of the cord. Then I connected the neutral (white) wire in side the furnace directly to the ground connection inside the furnace and it worked. Needless to say I was very happy. I do not recommend doing this yourself. This is just my way to stay warm this winter when the power goes out. JohnS
