PLace the throttle at full position while watching the governor arm. Loosen the clamp bolt on the governor arm and turn the governor crank in the same direction as previously noted until it stops. Now retighten the clamp bolt.

If you can access throttle linkage to the carburetor, slow the engine speed to idle before turning off. As mentioned in the previous answer ... turning off the fuel valve and letting it run dry is good if you are not planning to use it real soon.

Make sure the fuel valve is on, if that does not fix it you will need to drain the bowl on the bottom of the carb. What model is it

It may be just as simple as flashing the fields. Remove the end cap of the generator. Look for the brush holder on the top center of the housing The brushes may be worn out or the fields may have lost the residual magnetism. The brush holder has two wires going to it, a red (positive) and a ?white (negative). Hook a couple of wires to a 12 volts battery. Plug a lamp into the generator that will light up when it begins to charge. BE VERY CAREFUL!!!!! Start the generator and momentarily connect the two wires to the brush holder connections. Make sure you observe the polarity Two or three seconds is plenty. If this doesn't work remove the brush holder and check brushes.

Any engine that burns oil should be given a compression check and then have the compression rings replaced if they leak.

Remove it and soak it in "Sea Foam" carbureator cleaner. Should just be 2 screws holding it on. Get the service manual from Honda. Honda com Official Site of American Honda Motor Co Inc

Either through your local Honda power equipment dealer, or online at a Honda power equipment distributor like boats.net or dealercostparts.com. I have had great service from all of these options.

Most likely, the carbureator needs ot be rebuilt.

Honda Electrical... | Answered on Sep 03, 2014

either you have a crankcase with low oil or overfilled and contaminated with fuel.fill oil to first thread of filler and try again,if overfilled by fuel then you need to clean the carburetor float it may be obstructed.if oil okay and continues to shut off you may have a faulty low level sensor.
