Question and Answers

Q:

Won't start (Manual pull cord) 01919 Troybilt Portable generator

A:

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.

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.
