Bascially you need to completely remove the old, stale fuel to start with. (you can use the old fuel it in your lawnmower mixed 50:50 with fresh fuel to use it up).

Then once you've drained the fuel tank, you'll have to clean out the carb with a Fuel Injector and Carb cleaner. Really spray the carb till it's soaked, since you've got a schellaced fuel system.

Make sure you remove the air cleaner so you can get the spray into the carb. Also, with the spark plug removed, and the power switch turned "off", so the generator won't try to start during this process. You can also slowly crank the engine with the pull starter, to help work the cleaner through the system.

Then let the unit set for about 10-15 minutes, so the cleaner can evaporate, etc. and then you can reinstall the spark plug.

Now add about 1/2 gallon of fresh fuel and you can try starting the generator. You might have to use some starting fluid to get it started, by carefully spraying it into the carb in very small bursts to keep the motor running

Once it's running smooth, you should always use fresh gas and make sure to add a quality fuel stabilizer, such as Sta-bil, to the gas you use in the generator, as it will keep the fuel system protected for up to 2 years.

I also always turn off the fuel shut-off on my generator to use up the gas in the line before storing it. Also, you should get the generator out at least every 3 months and run it for 15-20 minutes to keep everything working and lubricated, so it will work when you need it.

Just be sure to always add more Sta-bil to your fuel and turn off the fuel shut off and let it run out, before storing.

I've done this with my generators and they're now over 14 years old and always start on the first pull and run like tops!

If you can't get the unit running smoothly, you may have to take it to a small engine service shop for them to do a "tune-up" for you.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Yamaha EF2800i generator will only run with the

Remove & Check Float bowl on carburettor for any foreign matter. If there is any, it could have got into jets causing engine to run lean (only run with choke) and not be able to carry load in this state. A cleanout of the carby would not hurt and check the fuel tank for any sediment as well.

Hello Karen,

What you are describing is not good at all.

There are 3 things that can cause what you said.
1) The engine seized due to lack of oil, though this generator should have a low oil shutdown, it may have failed, especially if the generator was being operated off level.
2) The engine has over heated, to the point that it seized.
3) A mechanical failure in the alternator, perhaps a bad bearing, has created a large amount of drag on the engine.

Would you check the oil, and post back where it sits at? Might have other options.

Pull start on a 5700 watt generator is locked up. Tech left the fuel shut off ON over night. It filled my oil up with gas. I drained all the old gas and oil out. Refilled it with 37 ounces of 5w30


Did you remove the spark plugs and drain the fuel from the cylinders? The gas in the oil was definitely a sign that the oil needed draining and replacement, but the pull start may be hydro-locked in the cylinders are full of fuel.

Need image of where the wires go on a powermate 5700 generator with yamaha motor. the wire colors are yellow,blue,black, and black with white stripe


are these wires on the engine only ? if so they could well be from the low oil sensor, maybe over heat sensor and to the kill switch if this is the case then its possible that they connect in a chain from kill switch to earth which will shut down the engine if a fault develops

Is there a brand.... on your current spark plug?

Most generators will do just fine with an NGK BPR5ES spark plug in most any environment.

Yamaha 5700 manual start gen. Pulls but will not start, fresh oil. And I"m at 5600 feet. And outside temp. Is about 38 degrees.


What have you tried so far? An engine needs fuel, air and spark to work properly.
Fuel - Has the generator been sitting for more than a couple of months? There could be bad gas in it, and/or varnish built up inside somewhere in the fuel tank/lines. The carburetor could be plugged somewhere blocking proper fuel delivery.
Air - The choke may not be working/applied properly, or the air filter clogged.
Spark - The spark plug could be fouled, have you tried seeing if there is spark or not? Is the spark plug wire on tight, is it the correct one, is it clean and gapped properly, etc?

My 5700 watt 11 HP McCullough generator wont start. I'm getting good gas to the plug but no spark.


The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.

Won't start.


Hi raw 28:

ther gas that was in the carb probably evaporated. you might tryt a little spray starter fluid in the spark plug hole or in the air intake of the carb, This might just get it running long enough to draw gas into the carb and get it self sustaining,

Good luck Loringh
