Customer Question
My Honda eu7000is generator...

My Honda eu7000is generator runs for a few minutes, jerks and turns itself off I've also noticed that the engine sound is a tad higher than normal when it starts up It remains a bit high until I put load on it

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

And the sound keeps slightly fluctuating during use though it doesnt affect the performance

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

There is no shut off valve to the best of my knowledge on the honda eu7000is It's an inverter generator

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Yes
