Make sure it's on level ground as there is a built in switch which inhibits operation. It doesn't take much tilt to throw it off, i.e. inclined driveways etc.. Make sure ALL switches are in proper position before pulling the cord and, oh yeah...make sure there's oil in it or it won't start!

Fuel will go stale if left for a long time. Drain and clean fuel tank and also drop float bowl on carburettor to remove any old fuel. If there is any sediment in the float bowl a carby clean could also be necessary.

Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run


Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Preventive maintenance craftsman 5600 generator


there should be a little bowl on the bottom of the carb if so take the bowl off and a gas can & funnel it should drain everything out the reason for draining all the gas out is if you don't most of the time it will start coroding the parts & when you go to use it again it wont run because the float is stuck or corosion in carb hope that helps e-mail me let me know thanks wade
