sarahmorrill: After trying a lot of SeaFoam on my eu2000i with just a little improvement,
I tried removing the pilot jet (idle jet) as shown in this video. Yes, it
was clogged. I tried several different kinds of wire and a needle and
nothing would unclog it even after soaking it in carb cleaner. I suppose I
could have used a mallet on the needle but there's the fear of making the
hole larger than it's supposed to be. So, I was getting ready to order a
new one for $18. But then I spoke to a Honda technician and he suggested I
try twisting a tiny drill bit into the hole. I went to the hardware store
and bought the smallest bit they had. Usually, they'll display a 1/16th as
the smallest but that's too big. Luckily, I found a smaller bit made by
Vermont American. The size is listed as #60 and it t cost me just $2.50.
After a couple minutes of delicate twisting, it finally made its way
through. I reinstalled it and that solved the problem.
robin saunders: thankyou very much.this vid.sorted out the problem.with my ex7.running
brownskinmedallion: Worked perfectly on my Honda EU2000i, which is the larger model. Thank you
very much, I do appreciate it!
Pa Bar: Cleaning the main jet didn't do the trick? Still needs choke to run well?
Here's the next step… The guy at my Honda generator store told me that what
I needed was a NEW main jet. Told him I made sure it was clean as a
whistle. He said that over time the main jet, which is brass becomes
tarnished (inside the hole) so that the orifice is just a fraction smaller
than originally intended. Install a new one and Shazamm! no more choke
needed. He also was adamant about the ethanol content of modern fuels
raising hell with most fuel system components, said if you can get AVGAS
(which has no ethanol) you'll have fewer problems. The Honda part you
need is "Jet, Main (#62)" part number is 99101-ZG0-0620… cheap solution...
I paid $5.14 retail. Job done.
rollin3z: Did you make a video for that? Thanks
NZVideoGuy: Fantastic!!! Thanks heaps!! :-)
strake750: I have a kiper100 generator it's running real lumpy I'm surprised it
doesn't konk out do you think this remedy will work...thanks
jmsmsagrada: My eu2000i was badly clogged with aged fuel. Using "Mechanic-in-a-Bottle"
to clean out the fuel tank and carburetor was helpful, along with your
suggestion to remove the plastic jet for cleaning. Those treatments
restored the eu2000i to like new operation in both the full power mode and
the ECO mode. No more having to deal with hard starts, playing with choke
settings, and loping operation. My eu2000i now operates like it did when it
was brand new! Thanks again.
norman hayes: Thank you for helping me you called it right!!!!!!!! You fix my generator
sputzelein: absolutely great, thank you. I had the "loping in idle" problem with the
eu20i and this video was the solution. On the eu20i you even don´t need to
remove the carburetor. Now it runs smooth in idle like it should do.
darthbj: Thanks for the video! However, I'm unsure as to how to clean out the jet,
you seem to be probing it with a needle at the end of the video, is that
all there is to it? Cheers
John Long: thank you very much on behalf of all honda 10i generator owners for taking
the time to share this knowledge.
FioletPL: One more question to you. At 0:57 you remove the fule pipe and then take
out the carburetor. I made a mistake and I pulled the whole thing out
first. So the fuel pipe, which comes out from another, thicker pipe, was
pulled out from it by some 2-3 cm. Now I wonder if it's safe and how to
repair it. I don't know where the other end goes and how much it goes into
the thicker pipe. To avoid fuel spillage and fire during work.
FioletPL: You helped me a lot. Thanks.
FioletPL: I just wonder. I have a no-name snowblower and a Partner lawnmower, and
none of them gets clogged because of leaving fuel in them for longer
periods. I just add a fuel stabilizer into the tank. Do you think that in
case of this generator it should also be enough or do I always have to
drain it after use, period? I'm afraid that in this case it's not about low
octanes after a period of time. Such draining after and filling before each
use is quite troublesome. Is there no way to overcome this?
