First and foremost, it is always recommended to get help from professional because trying to start a generator using alternative methods can backfire. Be extra careful if the generator runs on fuel or gas. Most generators nowadays are built in a way that they can be operated using emergency recoil option for the broken pull cord. Try removing the bolts that hold the recoil assembly. Take a piece of robe, tie a knot and place it in the notch on the rim outside. Wind the robe on that silver cup 3-4 times. Most companies provide a manual that states the procedure of fixing the broken cord this way.

Simplest solution is to repair or replace the pull cord. Small generators are designed to be simple. The pull cord assembly and spring are usually a single combined part. They are usually fairly easy to swap yourself.

You have to tighten the spring inside where the cord goes. The pull cord pulls on leverage by using a clock like spring like a lawn mower. You have to take it all the way apart. The cord part. To get to the spring.

It is strange answering this in a computer section. I answer computer questions and this is certainly not a computer question. Unless you have a wind up computer. Now I have heard of these. Where are you located, if this is a wind up computer.

Yes. Most any hardware store can sell you a new cord. If you want to replace both the cord and the pull mechanism you may have to contact a dealer.

SOURCE: I broke the pull cord on my generator; how do I

you should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit

I have a devilbiss generator mdel #gb5005 runs great but no power output any ideas


If the unit has been setting for a long time you would need to start with re-exciting the field.
If this does not resolve the problem the first check the winding for short to grounds, also check the resistance readings.
If these are all ok and within specs... then you will need to check the diode.

You can find a service manual at www.msservice.net

Need a replacement on-off switch for a DeVilbiss GB5000-2 generator


My switch broke as well. Instead of trying to find one, I removed it, and mounted a heavy duty toggle switch on the front of the shroud, just below the original location. Connect the original wire to one side of the switch, and a wire connected to a good ground to the other side. Btw, the off position on the toggle switch is run, and the on is now off. This repair has served me for years.

Operation of a Devilbiss GT5000 generator


not to familiar with the generators however , I do know that the old style receptacle for 240 volts was three prong. Then OSHA got a hold of it and added a second ground to make it 4 prong, Thats why some houses use a 3 prong dryer cord and some use a 4 prong. hope this helps. and if it has 2 240v outputs BONUS they dont make em like they used to.

Broken pull cord install instructions


Hi there .
The only way to get to the starter on a EU3000IS is from the front of the machine .
You have to remove the plastic around the control panel , remove the control panel and the inverter and you be able to see the starter on the right side . To remove it is only 3 10mm bolts holding it in place . Make sure when you put it back is on the right place and pull the cord gently so the starter can sit .
Hope this help

Generator hard to start. Kick back


This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.
