Hello. I live in Kosovo and I have an ACME generator, made in Italy.
It is fairly new and has been recently serviced, although it is
difficult to get it serviced.
My problem is that when I try to start it- with a full tank, the fuel
on, choke on and on button on and a good looking spark plug- it starts
for about 4 seconds and then dies, not to be started again until I've
regained my patience, which is usually the next day.
I need this machine for the work I do and was wondering if anyone can
give me any tips on what to look at.
First things first.
Have you checked the air filter?
If it is dirty, replace it if it the replaceable type,
otherwise was it in water (not gasoline) and let
it dry well before putting it back.
