Depending on the model/specs, it could be anything:

  • ignition - CDI, dirty sparkplugs, timing, high tension wire;
  • fuel - clogged jets in carburetor; dirt carb(s), filter, petcock, restricted fuel flow;
  • electrical - engine off, side stand switch, neutral switch, ignition switch.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back the model, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Honda generator wont start it was running fine.

If you filled the fuel tank with gasoline enhanced with ethanol the fuel may be bad and caused the carburetor to gum up. Also Honda engines have a low oil sensor and from your description of the oil, can cause problems with the sensor and the engine won't start. Try changing the oil first and then adding a small engine gasoline additive that helps with stale gasoline starting problems.

Want crank dont have no display their is power on the switch and to the starter but have nothing when i push run or auto

What brand of engine is this? Does the engine turn over at all? Have you cleaned all the electrical connection with contact or tuner cleaner? Is the starter connected? Have any wires come off or broken? Many times the starter has a problem with the pinion gear not not kicking out. It wont engauge the engine an generally rust is the issue. If you can remove the starter you can start ther an see what you have. Is the cable lose onthe starter? So many things to check. Try these an write back.

Honda gx340

Valves need to adjusted with a feeler gauge (6 and 8). Allows no kickback during start. Check air filter if still running rich. Hold filter away from housing, if it pulls it in most likely clogged. Hope it helps

My 1983 Nighthawk does not have spark while pressing the start button, but has spark after releasing and engine turns nother round. what could be the problem here?

This is a motorcycle question. Repost in motorcycles.

If it is like older electronic ignitions, it has a start and a run section. The start section can fail and the run section will still be good. Will it push start or does it have a kick start? Been a while since I had a bike.

Honda EG 2200 Generator wont Start

First make sure that you have a spark; remove the spark plug and position it so that the threads are touching the engine frame. Pull the cord and check the plug for spark. If you have spark, put the plug back in.

Get some starting fluid and spray it into the air intake of the carbuerator. Try to start the engine. If it starts and then stops, that indicates that you have a fuel delivery problem. Clean the fuel filter.
