Question and Answers

Q:

Which Briggs & Stratton engine is on this generator? 01919-1 Troybilt Generator

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. We, at Sears, value your service.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is questions about the generator.
 
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Troybilt Generator model number 01919-1.

I am sorry but the generator model will not give me the model number.   The number you had with the 204412 is actually the first part of the model number.   What you need though to make sure you get the correct parts is the type number.   There are 5 different Briggs and Stratton model after the 204412 and that is 0130-e1, 0147-e1, 0163-e1, 0163-01, and 0168-e1.  Please look back where you saw the start of the model and get the rest of the numbers so you can find the correct filters and spark plug, etc.
 
Please "RESUBMIT ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Solution for mine might be the same. Are you a professional generator mechanic providing guidance or a novice owner? Thanks for your reply and research of the problem. Tom

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the generator. If the unit was sitting for some time I suspect the problem is fuel related. I recommend pouring a teaspoon of fuel into the throat of the carburetor. Then pull the starter rope. If the engine acts as if it wants to start or does and dies the problem is fuel related. The problem is likely a dirty carburetor. If the engine does not attempt to start, I recommend checking the engine for spark. To do that the spark plug has to be removed. Then reconnect the spark plug to the spark plug wire. Once it is connected use a pair of insulated pliers to hold the base of the plug against a metal part of the engine. While you hold the spark plug in this position, pull the starter rope and observe the end of the spark plug. If you have spark I recommend checking the compression of the engine. If the compression is low, there is an internal problem with the engine.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know what you find with the checks.      Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Mark, Thanks for the reply. The previous owner of ther machine had - in fact - left it it unused for a long time. I concur with your assessment of the problem being fuel starvation. After doing all of the things noted in my initial e-mail, I had suspected some additional issue preventing gasoline from getting to the cylinder and plug. Each time after doing those things, the engine would start to run on each attempt by burning the starter fluid injected into the carb throat. By deduction, I could tell the coil and plug were maiking fire. However, for good measure I replaced the spark plug today. Still same problem. So I went back to the carb fuel bowl and flapper/float . I was initially reluctant to mess with this device very much as apprehension advised me not to tinker around too much and break something really important. I decided today to go for it and open up the item noted above. This is the main fuel entry point from the bowl body and spring then passes up through the central metal tube feeding the carb throat. After opening and cleaning the opening, guess what?? It runs!! So - now after the engine runs for a few minutes, the exhaust progressively puts out a lot of smoke and oil drips down the two bottom muffler assembly bolts as the engine heats up. I disassembled ON/OFF switch panel, engine shroud, pullcord shroud, and coil wire shroud to look for possible engine block etc leaks or damage. None apparent at this time. Appears to be passing from engine cylinder, exhaust pipe, and into the muffler. Stuck valve? Ideas? Thanks, Tom

Tom, I am glad to hear you got the unit up and running. If oil is burning out of the muffler, you want to check the oil level. If the oil level is fine, I recommend starting the engine and let is run for a while after about Five minutes the unit should stops smoking. If it does, I suspect the problem was just oil that seeped past the rings when it was sitting. If the engine smokes like this overtime you start it I suspect the problem is worn rings, and/or valve guides. As long as you keep the oil filled, the engine should not fail. Just smoke on start up. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Mark.

Thanks for your reply. As indicated earlier this was definitely an oil passage problem . When plug on opposite side of the engine was checked a lot of oil flowed out until the level decreased enough to have only a slight amount came out. Started engine and ran for several minutes. Unlike earlier reported problem, oil did not accumulate in nor leak from bottom of the muffler. As engine heated, the previously accumulated oil in the muffler heated and dissipated out with resulting smoke. Owners beware! Too much is not always better! Fill oill in the engine to the level specified in the owner's manual. Previous owner of this generator went overboard and created a problem!! Regards Tom
