What parts do you need?

Try checking the float 1st. Much like it is done in this video (different generator but same princible.):

from your description and what you do , the problem is in the auto control unit
it will be in the system to reduce the rpm to idle when there is no load ( auto mains on off controller switching between genset and mains supply)
by turning the auto operation off you are committing the gen set to full rpms regardless of the power requirement
you have the option of having it fixed at an gen set repair shop or leaving it off and starting the genset only when you have a mains power outage
check with an electrician to ensure that it is possible to run it that way as if the mains power unit is not correct , when you start it and you still have mains power , it will destroy the gen set

most likely a governor problem
check for broken governor control spring on the arm/lever

Honda Electrical... | Answered on Dec 13, 2016

on the governor control back to the carby , there is a screw that adjusts the spring tension for the governor arm
that screw is the adjustment for engine operating rpm not the idle screw

Depends on the wattage of the individual bulbs. Add up total bulb wattage of bulbs and make sure that it does not exceed the capacity of your generator.

Dear Sir/Madam,

To dismantle the Alternator:

End Plate and Windings:

1. Remove the End cover and note (or better take a picture) of the wiring layout.
2. Undo the engine mounts from the frame and raise the alternator with a block of wood so the mounting studs are free.
3. Undo all wiring and remove the brushes.
4. Undo the 4 outer bolts holding the alternator together.
5. Using a second piece of wood and a hammer, hit the inside of the outer casing where the 4 bolts were attached. Hit opposites (a bit like on a car fitting a car tyre) until the end casing comes free. DO NOT SPRAY OIL DURING THIS PROCESS AS MAY HARM THE ALTERNATOR WHEN NEXT FIRED UP. The windings should also drop off during this process, slide off and place carefully in a safe place.

To Remove the Rotor:

Only do this if you require the Rotor off the Generator! Due to the design the rotor gets tightened onto the crankshaft with the turning of the engine, so they can get stuck pretty solid! There are a few ways to remove the Rotor (Armature). Below we have found a video that will assist you:

If that doesn't work, try this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsNJLd7j0Yk

It sounds like your fuel mixture is too lean, closing choke is richening the mixture, by closing off air

Drain out the overfilled crankcase do not run this engine like this, you can lock up the engine.

Voltage regulator, carbon buildup in the cylinders, the carburetor may need overhauling, engine governor may have a stretched spring, Spark plug may need replacing, Timing may be off, air filter may need changing, and lastly, your load may exceed the ability of the generator.Checking this list will uncover the loss of power

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.

The minimum wattage needed to start a air-conditioning unit is usually 3000 watts but there can't be anything else at all using power at the time. If this is on an RV there are components such as the refrigerator, water heater, power inverter and house battery charger that will automatically start when the RV is connected to the generator. These may need to be manually shut off sometimes at the main power box.

http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31ZT7601.pdf There isn't a rotor or distributor on this engine. The ignition module can go bad. The flywheel of the engine has a magnet embedded in it to trigger a spark from the midule.

it appears to be insufficient fuel flow to the carby
check for blockages in the tap , lines , tank filter, needle and seat area

I know it's not a honda, but my generac governor went out, had to take it to a repair shop (still under warranty) they showed me the problem was the pin had snapped, u may have to "bite the bullet" and have a small engine repair tech do it. Its not easy to get to.
