I have a Generac XG8000E that cranks fine after battery

Customer Question

Hello, I have a Generac XG8000E that cranks fine after battery replacement, but won't start. I replaced the spark plug with proper gap. I seem to be getting fuel to the carb. A shot of starter fluid makes it start for a second, then it stops. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, John

If a shot of starter fluid will make it start briefly the carb needs to be pulled and cleaned out as something is clogging a jet and not allowing it to pull its own fuel
