    my honda generator 5000 is brand new bought in September 2011 with a remote start installed. To clearly explain the problem I hit my remote button it started and after about 15 minutes it started puttering off and on so I turned it off and put oil iin the generator since it was near empty than the engine kept puttering. What could i do to remedy this problem without paying more money. I paid $5200 for it which included the remote starter. We live off grid and this is our source of power and it runs about 8 hours a day...i would appreciate any help you can give me we saved up our money to get it and probably couldnt afford to have it serviced.

Those generators are set up with a low oil saftey but your gonna want to check compression anyways just to verify it is where it needs to be. Im gonna guess its to be between 120-160 psi, check your manual for the service limits. after that check your air filter, valve lash, fuel filter etc etc.

Hi there,

If I remember correctly this model does not use a fuel/oil mix. Please confirm this.

If what you are saying is that in filling the device with gas and checking the oil level, both overflowed, then we are good.

As you have done, drain both to their proper levels.

Now pull the spark plugs, they are most likely fouled with oil.

Turn the generator over a few times to clear the cylinder of excess oil.

Give the plugs a good cleaning. You may need to replace them. I just have a thing about tossing something with life still left in it.

Put the plugs back in and fire it up.

Best regards
Mike

It starts with the switch fine but when i let go of the key it cuts off


Check for faulty low oil sending unit or oil level low or dirty oil (some generators have a fuel cut-out solenoid at the carb ). Key switch will override the low oil safety. Easy test, remove wire from oil sending unit. If unit runs, and oil has not been changed in a while, service engine and retest.

Could low oil stop it from starting


Honda power products (generators specifically) are designed to shut down when low on oil. Adding as little as a tablespoon of oil will allow them to run again. It is possible that they could put this system in a motorcycle. But it is normally only used in stationary engines. Try new plugs. If the plugs are wet you may have just wet fouled them.

How can I shut my Honda eu1000i off from inside the cabin?


You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.

How to fix a genset 6500 generators that stops when you turn starter switch loose?


Check the oil level or any other alarm that can stop it.
The switch may have lost its middle stable position and drop directly to stop.
Try after you have the switch up for starting, let it easy back in middle position. If there it stops again. Try to move the switch down to "Stop". You should hear a click. If not replace the switch with the same type.

Do check the oil after it has tried to start. Low oil cutoff would certainly cause the problem. Look for the "lost" fuel shutoff valve... there usually is one.
