My Ryobi 3500 generator starts but will not run

I've found this vid helpful:

* check and clean out air filter.
* drain out old fuel from lines around on/off fuel valve.
* You may need to drain and force flush out fuel filter (I used the carborator cleaner to force out water in filter.)
* re-assemble fuel lines and clamp.
* pull out choke lever to full choke.
* Pull start cord (or start switch) several times to prime fuel line.
* Turn on switches to ready generator for start up.
* Try several times to start.
* If it won't start then spray in carborator cleaner or Generator start spay into the air intake (with air filter sponge removed. Just a short burst is needed.
* Try starting again.
* Pull at least 3 times before spraying any additional cleaner to prevent flooding.
* If generator does not even turn over then there is a spark or ignition problem. Pull the spark plug to clean and check gap. (see your specs for recommended gap.)
* try spray starting method again.
* if your still having problems (with not turning over at all) then you will have to take it to a small engine shop or contact the vendor for service. Check your warranty.
* Once the generator has started. Keep it running till smooth operation. Adjusting the choke to normal open position may take a few minutes till the engine has time to warm up. Install air filter and close up all covers. Allow for a 5 min run and check by connecting a load to the electrical out put. (plug in a saw or other heavy duty power tool) The generator should adjust to the additional load.

Is it a carb problem if I have to spray ether in carb for car to fire. Doesn't always stay running if I do. Carb or fuel line?

Probably fuel pressure issue. Check for leaks, dirty filter, low fuel pressure could indicate bad fuel pump. Normally, a float would cause flooding, but a clogged jet could cause a lean / no start issue. Try some gumout fuel cleaner and a gumout spray clean of the carb and linkages before you get to far into a part issue.

Clean carborator

You've proved the problem is fuel not getting through carb. Most likely clogged fuel filter (replace but first flush out the tank and line to filter). Next, broken fuel line (brittle with age); take piece to hardware store for sizing and replace with "fuel line" - nothing else(!). Still no? Soak carb in cleaner, otherwise replace it.
That should do it, please let me know.

Have a 93 vulcan kawasaki and am trying to find a diagram of how hoses are wired to carborator. Also, I am trying to find out what the screw settings are on the throttle cable and the other cable that...

Hi, Candyl_white (you still have a carb or intake issue) if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will not idle unless the choke is full on and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and cracks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
9. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

Engine stalls out on occasion like the key was shut off have change air flow sencer mapp sencer new vaccum lines

Check your plugs, wires, distributor cap/rotor, fuel filter, and air filter.

If I had to take a guess, I would try replacing the Distributor Cap & Rotor, as well as the Fuel Filter. Also, try running some Gumout Fuel Injector Cleaner and a tank of good gas through it.

I hope this helps! Best of luck to you :-)

The generator will not start. When I spray Gumout into the carborator, the engine runs for about 2 to 3 seconds then shuts off no matter what position the choke is in. Please advise.

hi, carefully remove the bowl from the carb and clean out any water/rust/dirt etc allow fuel to pass through the carb till it drips out , reattach bowl and leave it for 10 mins then try starting it .
hope this helps

My 1992 dodge dakota wont run. i will start it but i will have to feather the gas to keep it alive. it has over a half a tank of gas in it can you help me?

when was this vehicle as serviced?
this could one of several issues.

1 the idle jet on the carborator maybe dirty so the engine is not getting enough fuel at tickover to keep running.
2 the fuel filter is blocking up and may need replacment.
3. the carborator may need an overhaul as the float chamber is not activating correctly.
4. fuel cap may be blocked give a run with the fuel cap off see if that helps. if you get aload hiss each time you fill up that indiates a blocked fuel cap which will need clearing or replacing.
5. dirt in the fuel line if filled from jerry cans contaminents can get in th tank and block the line. when you put pressure on the gas this causes higher vacum from the pump and hides the problem.
6 airfilter may be blocking and needs replacement so there is not enough air at ldle.
7 check plugs if they are sooty or covered in white then the mix is wrong and needs resetting. or indicats reduced fuel or air to engine.
8. plugs may need replacement.
