Consider a Honda if you are buying a small portable. I have been in the business for 12 years and own my own company. Honda makes a good unit that holds up better than any other, but you will pay a little more up front. If you are in the market for a home stand-by I would also recommend buy one that cost a little more up front. The cheaper one will cause you more expense and troubles in the long run, and in an emergency if it doesn't work or last it is good for absolutely nothing. I recomment Kohler or Onan.

Get a generator that is rated for the amount of power that you can determine you will need.Look at the labels on lighting, appliances, and equipment you plan to connect to the generator to determine the amount of power that will be needed to operate the equipment. Choose a generator that produces more power than will be drawn by the combination of lighting, appliances and equipment you plan to connect to the generator including the initial surge when it is turned on.

consider this
what is the wattage of the coffee pot and what is the wattage of the genset
if they are the same then the overload of the gen set has cut in
the gen set has to be at least twice any wattage of what is connected

5500 watt generator will not run my 2hp air compressor


5500 watt generator will meet the 1491.4 watt requirement of the 2 hp compressor motor
given that 5500 watts generator is rated continuously at around 4500 watts and will handle spikes to the 5500 watts when electrical components start there should be plenty left
consider the possibility or a motor below full capacity, carby problem ( jets blocked , water, blocked air filter not getting full throttle from the governor lever, worn rings, type of fuel in use --E mix)

Is there a brand.... on your current spark plug?

Most generators will do just fine with an NGK BPR5ES spark plug in most any environment.

Generator only runs on full choke


The carb is probably dirty. Remove the carb from the generator and then remove the bowl. If there are signs of corrosion then it will need to be dissassembled and cleaned. This is not a difficult job if you have the proper equipment and tools. If not, you might consider purchasing a replacement for about $65. The part number is 16100-ZL0-D64.

I have a Troy Bilt 7800 portable generator. It produces no power.


Make sure the generator/alternator is being driven by the engine. Couplers fail often enough to consider the possibility.

What do you consider high? If the voltage is between 115- 125 volts, it's fine.
