YOU ALMOST CERTAINLY HAVE A CARBURETOR PROBLEM : HERE IS WHAT TO DO
REMOVE THE CARBURETOR
DISASSEMBLE THE CARBURETOR
SOAK BODY AND PARTS OVERNIGHT IN NAPA COMMERCIAL CARB CLEANER
REASSEMBLE WITH A CARB KIT AND FLOAT FROM LOCAL DEALER
clean fuel filter
DRAIN FUEL TANK AND LOOK IN THE FUEL SUPPLY CAN FOR WATER
NOTE: SOMETIMES A CARBURETOR CANNOT BE SAVED AND HAS TO BE REPLACED
ALWAYS DIAGRAM THE LINKAGE AND PARTS SO IT GETS REASSEMBLED PROPERLY
ALWAYS USE STABIL IN THE FUEL
ALWAYS RUN ENGINE EVERY THREE WEEKS IN OFF SEASON TO CIRCULATE FUEL
The generator was purchased from Home Depot and they do not carry carb kits or floats any ideas on where to search for a dealer. What would I be looking for, i.e. what type of store or name of store or can this be purchased online.
