Basicaly depends on the size of the unit but the minimum distance should be atleast 3feet clear from all sides But if your place has one side wind direction out doors then keep the air suction side of the engine towards it so that the cool air goes in easily It helps keeping the engine temprature under limits for long duration runnings On exoust side of the generator should be clear open bcause it takes out the burnt fuel smoke and throws the warm air of the engine and alternator

Make sure you have adequate safe space outdoors to run the generator. In order to provide proper ventilation, some generators require 3-5’ distance on all sides of the generator – check your generator manual for specifics.

Carburetor leaking gas


PROBABLY YOUR CARBURETOR FLOAT INSIDE THE CARBURETOR IS NOT WORKING DUE TO MALFUNCTION OR DUE TO SOME DUST SETTLED IN THE FLOAT PIN THAT BLOCKS THE FUEL ONCE THE CARB IS FULL. IF U ARE TECHNICAL THEN FIRST CLOSE THE FUEL TAP, PULL THE FUEL PIPE FROM THE FUEL TAP SIDE CAREFULLY AND TRY TO INJECT CARBURETTOR CLEANER IN THE FUEL PIPE AFTER FEW MINUTES TO HAVE SPACE INSIDE THE CARB FOR CLEANER TO TAKE ITS PLACE. THEN CONNECT THE PIPE OPEN THE FUEL TAP AND CHECK THE LEAKS. OF ALL OK TRY TO RUN THE ENGINE IT MAY STOP OR THE RPM COULD VARY DUE TO CLEANER. DONT WORRY IT WILL BE OK IN FEW NIMUTES.
SINCE IT IS HIGHLY RISKY AND FUEL COULD IGNITE . EVEN IF U ARE TECHNICAL YOU SHOULD TAKE PRECAUTIONS OF FIRE THAT COULD BE IGNITED BY SPARK PLUG WIRE.
YOUR GENERATOR SHOULD BE 10 TO 20 FEET AWAY FROM RESIDENTIAL AREA OR CAR ETC AND KEEP HANDY A FIRE ESTINGUISHER. OR SIMPLY TAKE TO TO YOUR CAR MECHANIC WHO SHOULD DO THE JOB WELL.
