Same as mine then.Selkirkslim, thanks for your info.
Spec code is Spec:K
Fuel filter, air filter ( on the off chance it needs one) , pull the plug and take a gander at it while you're at it.It has always ran everything just fine, I've had this set up since 2006. Just recently it has started doing this. I'm going to change the fuel filter even though I think it's fairly new. Fuel line running to the gas tank is also new. Going to start with the cheapest fixes first.
Hello new to this site and I just searched “Microlite” and found this thread.
So my Microlite 2800 is about 15 years old but I run it all the time, tons of hours on it but I maintenance the heck out of it and that’s probably why it has lasted so long but recentry when I’m driving with it running and the ac is on or off even, it shuts off. It won’t start back up by the remote but it does when I hold the governor arm all the way wide open(I think open) and press start button at the generator.
This is a new issue I’ve been having the last 2 or 3 drives. Oil is clean and perfect at the full mark.
I was wondering about that video posted by dontom about the oil needing to be just above the fill line. Does that do the trick?
Anyone care to chime in?
Depending on how recently you installed that sound proofing, that's more than likely your leading problem.Selkirkslim
You actually brought up a good point about the air flow. I put sound proof around the generator. I think that may be the problem with it blocking air flow. Going to remove it. Good point and thank you
The possible points to ponder are endless.You should probably repost this as a new question so as not to confound the original question and also to highlight your specific problem.
My generator was exhibiting similar issues - I call it hot shut down. As the engine heats up it needs a "leaner" mixture. All I had to do was to lean out the idle and run needles within spec.
An indicator of rich running will be a gassy smell when trying to start and probably a sooty exhaust.
