Question about Honda 6370C - Parallel Power Kit For EU3000i
My 2 year Honda EU3000is generator is sputtering and surging especially under a load. I have replaced the spark plug and the air filter. I have emptied the gas tank and replaced with new fuel and a few ounces of carb cleaner. Initially I tried just draining the carb. bowl in the hopes of removing any bad gas or water. After all this made no difference to the performance, I removed the carb. and cleaned all parts with cleaner and compressed air even though there was no sign of any dirt or varnish. The generator still sputters and surges under a load. It runs a little better in the ECO throttle setting but on full throttle it sputters and can't even handle the microwave in our camper. Slightly pulling out on the choke makes no change to the problem, it gets worse ruling out starving for fuel. Any suggestions?
Can anyone help me with the eco-trottle switch when I switch it on it seems to run the same idle whether I have it off or on, what could be causing it not to work, is it a bad switch or I am running 89 octane could that be the problem.

Hi there .
If you still have the owner's manual check how to clean the spark arrester . The spark arrester (metal screen) is located on the muffler and get blocked with the time . To get to it you have to remove all rear end of the machine to get to the muffler. After you get to the muffler you will see that the muffler will separate in two pieces . Just remove the 3 screws holding the muffler on place and the spark arrester is inside the muffler . Simply clean it with a wire brush .
Hope this help.

The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.
The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.
