Martin Keeley: Hi Jeremy, this are very helpful. We're trying to replace the starter pull chord and having trouble accessing it. Can you please advise a "blow-by-blow" way to do this?
E Ellis: Hey mowermedic1, I have a Honda Eu3000is. I wont throttle up. It can run small items, palm sander, airless paint sprayer etc. I have cleaned the carb, air filter, checked the spark plug, replaced the oil. any ideas.
Jeffrey Holmes: Hi Jeremy, I've got a 3000is, love it, Live off the grid, set up solar hydra and wind, but still need a generator for certain power uses. My 3000is recently stopped running. Did comp. test... 000, ordered a head and all of the component parts that it will take to do the job, except I am unable to find valves, rods, and valve seats through any of the distributors on line. Any suggestions? Thanks , Jeffrey
aidytheace: Hi, I am wanting to convert a 120v unit to 230v. Would it be just a matter of swapping out the inverter unit and socket fitting? Cheers.
Nazz Boner: Hey Jeremy, I just put in a new battery. The starter makes noise but it won't start the generator. Pull starts just fine. Any help?
janet auckland: i have a eu3000 inverter the pull rope is not chaffed but it pulls the rope out a little bit then stops then relax a little pull again comes a little each time it stops relax the rope and i cannot pull it all the way to start any idea.
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 (THEMOWERMEDIC1): 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 (THEMOWERMEDIC1): 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 (THEMOWERMEDIC1): 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 (THEMOWERMEDIC1): 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?
