This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.

Ok Motors and the like generally DO NOT really go all that well from a generator, what load does the Stove use?, You must add up the cumlitive "Wattages" of ALL things connected, see your generator is about 3000 Watts, 3KW, How much "headroom" is there between the two? Whats supplied versus whats being used? Purely inductive loads, like Motors etc, are less responsive than electronic loads. I suspect that your generator is NOT providing enough current to the Stove, especially when "Other" things are connected. also. Look, if the, any, generator is 3000 Watts really you should only load it up to a couple of KW's, 2.5KW being about maximum. To do what you are doing would require, IMHO, at least, 5KW, to get the "Headroom" of current drawn over current able to be delivered by the generator. Also inductive loads loose heaps of power and actually cause a higher draw. So that your answer, you must use it well, inside it's rating, not right up to the limit.

Hello. There are a couple of reasons why a battery goes dead, the most common one being that there is a drain on the battery which has to be located and fixed. You can upgrade the battery as long as you are sure that the voltage on the new battery is the same as what you have now. The new battery will have more amperage which simply means that is it indeed "bigger".

My goodness I just saw your post and I see it has been around since Dec 2010. Your post appeared after I answered a much newer post. (site operates in this manner)
Anyway if you have a 1986 generator and you have 12V DC to the starter with the key on the most likely problem is the brushes in the starter PN: 31215-ZE2-003 or 31215ZR2003
The only problem I have is that I do not know if this is a set or an individual brush. Use the toll free phone number on the link above to confirm quantity.
Once you have the starter removed use some 220 grit or above sand paper and clean up the copper contacts on the starter armature and lubricate the bearings.
If you do a continuity test of the armature using the copper contacts your meter leads must be exactly 180 deg from each other (opposing) to get a resistance reading.
Reading out the stator winding is a matter of reading the + lead terminal to the case.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
