Anyone have any Idea what is wrong or what I can do or expect? I was excerzing my generator after it sat for about 4 months, and all was going fine. All of a sudden it died. It will restart but when I put a load on it of just 800w, it just dies again. It is an older 1994 Onen 2800 model.
Might consider running a can of Sea Foam gas additive in your gas, it does a pretty good job of cleaning up a carb. Since the generator isn't hard down, this could possibly put it on track without a lot of needless teardown.
well I took the B out for a run and also ran the gennerator. I filled up with fresh gas and it seem to run fine. I ran it for almost 2 hours. The only thing is when I took a hard left turn it died. I wonder if oil sloshed around and the low oil cut off shut it down?
All your guesses as to the problem could be right, but may not be it at all. You haven't described just "how" it quits. Does it just stop firing? Slow down? Chug a bit but return to high rpm before it dies? There are a lot of symptoms that can be worked out in just how it sounds. Likely you have a fuel problem if it struggles some before it dies. If it just quits, it more likely would be an electrical problem in its ignition system. From what you say, it is best, it appears, to put it in the hands of a professional.
