Open Question

I have the Briggs & Stratton 5250 Generator Model 030204. It will not start. I think there is a fuel hose missing. Right next to carburator I have gas pouring out of hole. And the small round device that contains the float has a gold piece at the bottom that looks like a hose should run from it to where the fuel is pouring out of. Is this the problem with why it wont start? If so, what size fuel hose do I need. Or is something else wrong

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton Burnt Brushes

I did find out that the inner slip ring was worn down. Still unknown why and the repair tech we took it to twice just replaced the brushes and never looked at the slip rings.

My solution, which has worked for over two months now (knock on wood) is as follows:

The slip ring on this unit can only be replaced by replacing the whole rotor assembly. I looked at the width of the brushes and the width of slip rings. The slip rings are twice as big as a brush. The solution was to move the brushes outward by one brush length. In order to do that, I had to turn the brush assembly around because of the extra plastic on the unit and space it out one brush length. Note: Still hook the wires as if the brush assembly was not turned around.

I used an old brush assembly and cut the two areas where the screws go through to make my spacers and it works perfectly.

I recommend remove all fuel from the tank. Remove the hose from tank to carb. take the tube with you, when getting new hose.

SOURCE: Generator with Briggs & Stratton,no gas is getting in carburetor

The needle valve may be stuck which would not let gas into the carb. I don;t think rebuild kits are too expensive. Pull the carb and take it to a lawnmower repair shop and they should have the parts. Before that though pull the bowl and make sure it has gas in it. If no then remove the fuel line and make sure gas flows from it. If no then could be the fuel shutoff valve is not operating properly or junk in the gas tank is obstructing the line.

SOURCE: I have a craftsman lawn tractor with a

If this tractor/engine has a fuel solenoid at the bottom of the carburetor, with a small plastic plug in on the side of it, you will have to unscrew the solenoid to remove the bowl. It takes a very thin 1/2" wrench to reach the flat sides on the solenoid and not mess anything up. I use an old tappet wrench but I don't know if they even make those anymore. If you have to, get an old cheepie wrench and grind it down equally on both sides where it will fit. If it doesn't have the solenoid you should be able to just remove the bowl nut and gently tap the lower edge of the bowl to break it loose.
If the thing is badly varnished up, you should remove it completely and rebuild it or replace it. There will most likely be varnish in the main jet as well as just the bowl and sometimes replacing is the better alternative.
If you want to post the Sears Model number, I will look it up and tell you the difference in price of kit vs new.
