Are you using a 4 conductor cable from your generator to your transfer switch? Or is it a 3 conductor cable? If it is a 3 conductor cable then try jumping the neutral to ground in the plug of the cord.

Good luck,

When you say "can't get to charge" are you talking about the low ac voltage coming out or receptacles or what?

Honda Electrical... | Answered on May 25, 2014 | 199 views

There's 2 possible causes . I believe there's a service bulletin from American Honda to replace the small electric motor on top of the carburetor , if still under warranty you good if not have your local dealer contact tech line for a good will warranty . 2nd cause is the inverter behind the front panel . The inverter controls spark , idle and all of the electronic and electric components on your generator . Hope this helps

Sounds like the Float is either broken so it doesn't float and shut off the Needle Valve. More likely the carburetor is gummed up from a few month old ethanol gas and the Needle valve is stuck.
Write your Congressman and tell him to get rid of the Ethanol Gas law that is up for vote again. Ethanol is killing carburetors
