Pelton Dean: I have one of these that wont idle up......? Any suggestions?
Dave B: Jeremey - love the videos. Thinking about getting honda eu2000i, but its got OHC and rubber belt. Do you think the Yamaha ef2000 is better genset because its pushrod? Thanks very much
Marc Paisey: hi i got the eu26i and it won't start. it has no spark, changed plug & still no spark. disconnected oil switch, no spark. is it going to be the coil? looks a pain to get to
John S: I had talked with a guy at a Murdochs Ranch and home store. He said that if they run on eco mode low idle a lot that that's bad for them as they have carbon buildup. I wasn't aware of that when I bought it but I use it to keep the batteries on my 5th wheel camper charged up and it runs idle for probably 8 hours a night. Could that possibly be my issue and how do I clean the spark arrester? Or do I need to buy a new spark arrestor?
JEREMY FOUNTAIN: SOUNDS LIKE THE SPARK ARRESTER IS CLOGGED UP OR YOU HAVE A CARBURETROR ISSUES......THERE ARE SO MANY VARIABLES THAT COULD MAKE THE ENGINE RUN BAD......FIRST AND FORMOST THING I WOULD DO IS A LEAK DOWN TEST ON THE ENGINE TO TEST ITS MECHANICAL INTEGRITY THEN GO FROM THERE
John S: I got it to fire up. But it runs really rough on high idle. Its a little smoother on eco mode. I had the air filter cover off and when I put it back on it started running even rougher.
JEREMY FOUNTAIN: CHECK FOR SPARK
John S: I have been using my Honda eu3000 all summer off and on. Last night it died and I just assumed it ran outta gas. I got home from work and its full of gas/oil. Oil is clean does not smell like gas. It turns over just fine but it just wont fire. Any thoughts?
JEREMY FOUNTAIN: ONLY WAY TO DIAGNOSE IS TO RUN THE MACHINE WITH AN AMP METER INSTALLED AND SEE HOW MUCH JUICE YOUR PUMPING THROUGH HER........3000WATTS WILL RUN 2 HAIR DRYERS AND THATS ABOUT MAX IF THAT GIVES YOU AN IDEA
JEREMY FOUNTAIN: THE CONNECTOR THAT ATTACHES THE MAIN HARNESS IS CORRODED.....REMOVE AND CLEAN ALL THE TERMINAL PINS.
aw172: a regular generator produces an AC current directly which can cause voltages to spike or sink based on engine rpm's, while an inverter generator produces DC current, which is then inverted to AC giving you the perfect voltage and power needed, so if you are using sensitive equipment ie laptop, you should use an inverter.
Mary Scott: My EU3000 honda gen. won't keep the battery charged.I put a new battery in it & it started up with the key.The next day I tried to run it & it sounded like the battery was almost dead,so I started it up with the pull cord & it runs fine.Is there an alternator inside that could be bad? And if there is,where is it.
TDHReviews: whats the diffrence in one of these inverter generators and a regular ones?
mkmason2002: How do you prevent the gas from clogging? Great video man.
TDHReviews: ive worked on a few of these as well theere great machines
