If you run 12volts to the carb, will it run? I assume since it has no power at carb as you stated, that it has a fuel shut off at carb and will need voltage to activate magnet.

this sounds like a capasitor/resistor that is getting hot under load once it is switched off and cools down it works until it gets hot again similar to that of a cars ignition coil which will get hot and cut the vehicle out but once it cools it will start again.

The error code is for incorrect air/fuel ratio. The first thing to try and most common cause is a bad fuel filter. Try replacing the fuel filter. It is possible that the 2 cycle mix, since it contains oil, had gummed up the filter. I would also run some carburetor cleaner through it.

For your question, i have replied many people, why generator set can start but not generate electricity?
Here is some reasons for reference:
1.After the diesel generator is stopped, the residual magnetism is often lost, because the material used for the magnetic pole of the exciter is close to the soft steel, and the residual magnetism is small. After the shutdown, when there is no current in the excitation winding, the magnetic field will disappear.
2.The magnetic pole of the diesel generator loses its magnetic properties.
3.Damage of excitation circuit components or circuit breakage, short circuit or grounding phenomena.
4.The exciter brush is not in good contact with the commutator and pressure of brush holder is insufficient.
5.Excitation winding wiring error, opposite polarity.
6.Stator winding and rotor winding of generator set open circuit.
7.Poor contact between diesel generator brush and slip ring, or insufficient brush pressure.
8.Diesel generator lead wire wiring is loose or switch contact is poor.
9.The fuse box is fused.
10.The "auto-manual-de-excitation" switch on the control panel is in the de-excitation position (automatic generator set has "auto-manual-de-excitation" switch).
11.The voltmeter is damaged.
12.Rotary rectifier module is damaged.

Most of the time it is either the Capacitor or AVR that has blown (depending on what is fitted on your generator.). Check out our videos on how to test them.
We hold a full range of Generator AVRs and Capacitors. https://www.generatorguru.com

We have a whole Help Center and Engineers dedicated to helping people fix their Portable Generators. In addition to this we have a "Parts Search Service" if the part is not listed on our site. Check us out on our site. https://www.generatorguru.com/

To have success using starter fluid as a diagnostic you will need to remove the air filter cover and element. Then with choke open make a short (1 second) burst of starter fluid directly into the carburetor throat. (There is no need to saturate the intake with starter fluid... it is bad practice.) Promptly pull starter cord no more than 3 times. If you have compression and proper spark, it will fire and run for 1-3 seconds and stop as it will have expended the available fuel (starter fluid).

If it doesn't fire, repeat procedure. If still doesn't fire, likely no spark or plug is fouled. Promptly remove spark plug and check that plug is dry. Then check it has proper gap and you have spark. A wet plug will imply it is flooded and a flooded engine will not fire even with starter fluid.

If it does fire, then the likely problem is no fuel or water in fuel. Drain fuel bowl and some fuel (1/2 pint) from tank (just open fuel shutoff valve with carb bowl drain open) into a clear glass jar, let set for a minute and check for visible water line. If water visible, drain tank and refill with fresh fuel (use a clean EMPTY fuel container go to filling station and get 2 gal. fresh). If no water, then likely carburetor is fouled and will need service.

If it's on a Ryobi Generator then it should be a real Honda Engine. It's possible that it's a knock off or was replaced with one. If you bought it new from a reputable source then it's real, if it's used or came from an offshore source for a really low price then it's a good possibility that it's a kkoxk off. In all honesty, from my experience they do a great job with the knock off engines & they're usually reliable and last a normal life span similar to a real name brand.

Either way, that mechanical Issue Remains, I'm assuming you're refering to the valve being stuck and basically keeping the engine locked up and not allowing it to the over when attempting to start it. Sounds likely. Did you take the spark plug out and turn it over to see if it'll turn over at all to ensure it's not just totally locked up? My suggestion would be to Remove the valve cover and spark plug so that you can see the valvetrain in action when(if so) it is turning over and observe it to see if your valve theory is correct!

Thanks and good luck my friend, see the infinity below please, have a great day!

The Honda 5.0 gc160 owners manual calls for an NGK BPR6ES for proper heat range. Should be available at any Lawnmower shop or online at ebay

use your car battery and jump it. you cannot get too big a battery. big is better.

I would suspect that the inverter is fine and would look towards carburetion. The inverter, in addition to supplying the correct voltage and current, monitors the current being drawn by your connected load. It controls that stepper motor on the top of the carburetor and increases the throttle to increase the engine power to support the load. (Mechanical power in = electrical power out.)
Start the generator and then add a small load to the outlet, 100 watt light bulb or something. I use a space heater that I can turn on just the fan. See if it still stays running. Then increase the load (with my heater I go from fan only to the first level heat 1000w) and watch the top of the carburetor to see if the inverter increases the throttle to compensate for the increased load. By the sounds of what you are describing, it will go to full throttle and the engine will die because of a restriction on the available fuel. If that is the case, take the carb off and clean it. Or if you are not the carburetor rebuilding type, buy a new one.. they are only about $80. Not a bad fix for a $2000 generator :)

Verify that the double gang circuit breaker is good on both sides. Check for loose wire on breaker or receptacle.
