Question about Buffalo Tools 4,000 Watt 6.5 Hp Portable Generator #GEN4065

Open Question

I have a Buffalo Gen 7013 generator. It won't start without using starting fluid in the air cleaner and then only runs as long as the spray lasts. There is fuel leaking from the bottom overflow port on the engine side of the carburetor. What's up? Float Sticking?

Idle speed jet or passage and/or high speed jet/passage is clogged. Remove the carb and inspect and clean thoroughly, then re-install. Set idle and high spped screws approx 1 turn and tune to run smooth from there.

Won't start without starting fluid


You might want to try using a carburetor cleaner additive, or a spray cleaner to clean the carb internally. Make sure your air filter is clean. You may also want to make sure fuel lines are not restricted.

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

Make sure there is enough oil, some generators wont start when oil level is low to protect from damage. Also have you cleaned the fuel injector, they get dirty and clogged just like a car.

Generator Won't start


Gap the plug at .030 What is most likely the main problem is whatever gas sat in the carb. Even with fresh gas there will be some old gas still in the float bowl. You may be able to drain the bowl and be OK but I have a feeling that the carb will need to come off and be disassembled and cleaned properly. You can try spraying carb cleaner (I dislike starting fluid as it is too volatile and carb cleaner does just as well in this instance) into the carb/intake. Remove the air filter, open the choke, and spray the carb cleaner in through that way if possible. You can actually keep an engine running by spraying with short bursts. Even by just spraying once you should be able to get the engine to start. If it does start but then will not stay running without spraying more into the engine then it is a carb problem.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Always troubleshoot with new sparkplug. Remove the oil sending unit connection from the coil. The coil should work without any wires connected. Usually the only connections are oil sending unit that will short to ground when low oil condition and other wire must be kill wire to on/off switch. Use carb cleaner spray directly into the carb with air filter removed and choke off as fuel supply. Just a short spray and another short spray after a couple of pulls. If engine wants to start you will need to keep spraying cleaner for engine to continue to run. If engine wants to run, replace fuel with couple gallons of premium fuel to get it going. Hotter fuel will help if the compression is low. Good luck

I spray some gas in the carboraitor.It runs for about 5 sec. and stops.There is gas in the tank.


Your Coleman power generator's carburettor is clogged. Your can tell that this is so, since
when you circumvented the carburettor (by spraying fuel), the engine worked.

Last time I fixed a clogged carb, I put it into a coffee can, hosed it down with carb cleaner spray (and some WD-40, which I had alot of at the time), and let it sit in cleaner fluid for 3 days.
It worked perfectly after that.
Failing the "soak it in cleaner" solution, the next step to getting your carb to work is to rebuild it, by purchasing a carburettor rebuild kit for your specific carburettor.

Next time, instead of spraying gas (this provides gasoline like a primer bulb would), you could also try spray "Starting Fluid" available at any car parts store - but gasoline works too. Anytime I debug a small engine, there's a can of spray starting fluid nearby.

Sounds like you need to clean the carb ports, lines, jets, etc... purchase a carb spray cleaner with a tube to place on the spray head (Berryman's Chemtool B-12 is awesome).
