Wont stay running


You should only use choke until you get a turn over. After that, turn off choke and it should start right up.

Wont run unless you run it on half choke,also very hard to start.


Thats is definately a lean condition. Can be caused by one or more of the following problems: clogged fuel filter, rotten fuel lines, stiff diaghrams, and clogged carb screen.
Todays fuel is a large cause of the problem so I advise that you go ahead and service the entire fuel system... replace the fuel lines and filter and rebuild the carb. Also if the primer bulb is discolored ( brown, they are clear when new) it should be replaced too.
This is not a difficult task as long as you are patient and take your time. Carb kits run from 7-12 bucks, a filter is about 3 bucks and fuel line is about 2 bucks a foot and a primer buld is just a few bucks.
I reccomend getting extra fuel line. It needs to be very snug in the tank to prevent leaking so cut an angle on the end of the fuel line to get it started then reach in and grab it with hemostats and pull it though the fill opening; then cut it off even and insert the fuel filter; then pull the line back into the tank to desired position making sure that filter lays loosely on the bottom of the tank, then cut to length to attatch to carb

Poulan ppd350 starts fine but I have to put choke on half way to run


Fuel starvation, start with simple stuff first, reolace the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hoses up to the carb for splits, cracks or signs of leaking, if no better there is dirt in the carb itself.

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

if you are running the engine at full CHOKE, then it is flooding the engine, but if you meant off full choke, then the carb is still stopped up. Try soaking in carb cleaner overnight after removing jet & all rubber goods. HOPE THIS HELPS.

It sounds like the carburetor needs to ether be cleaned or rebuilt. Try running a little bit of carburetor cleaner through it and see if that helps. If not then take it in for a tune up. Have them rebuild the carburetor while they have it and this will get you back in business. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Coleman 6250 generator runs rough


Fresh fuel? Does carburetor have adjustable jets? Turn the high speed jet (at bottom of float bowl) about 1/4 to1/2 CCW (looking at bottom of bowl). If no improvement, carburetor should be torn apart and cleaned. This also applies if there are no adjustable jets. Is there a fuel filter anywhere?
