Questions & Answers

I used starter fluid to crank my Storm Responder generator that has been sitting idle in my garage for several years. It started but only ran for a few seconds (repeatedly). I ran it until it ran out of gas before storage. Any suggestions? David
David for model number 030430 asked on 2019-06-24
Hello David, Thank you for the question. I would change the spark plug, probably would be a good idea to take apart the carburetor and rebuild it and give it a good cleaning out. If there is corrosion inside the carburetor it will need to be replaced. The carburetor will need to be set up again after this. Check the condition of the fuel lines especially inside, change the fuel filter. Basically, give it a major tune-up. This normally corrects any issues such as this. If the problem persist then dive into it deeper but the engine needs to be tuned up before moving any further to pinpoint problems. Hope this helps and good luck.

Question: Generator Does Not Output Voltag...

mike barnes

I have a Briggs & Stratton generator one year old . I connected it as usual and started the gen. I did not turn off two ac units in the house. When I switched the breaker it kicked the breaker out overloaded. Now it will not generate even with the break reset. Can you tell if I need a new breaker or did something happen to the gen set itself. The unit is a 5500 watt/ 8250 Briggs/stratton model 030430-01
I'm in the same predicament. Did you ever find a solution?
See my thread on Briggs&Stratton low voltage. Feel free to call or email if you never resolved.

Hi Mr. McDonald You MAY want to see when those 2 guys penned those posts! It is great to LET folks know how to diagnose generator problems. I have fooled with them a time or two myself. Your offer wont help those other two guys much, but maybe some new arrivals looking on NOW can turn to you for some help. Thanks for posting and helping others!
Question: Carb Kit

I need a carb kit for a nikki carb. I have a Briggs & Stratton engine, model #030430

Hello michael,

To get the correct part number for the Briggs and Stratton carburetor kit we will need the model number of the the engine itself. It will be stamped on the engine usually close to the valve cover. Post the model number and we will get part you need.

Question: Briggs & Stratton Generator

Jack

This is a Briggs & Stratton Mod. 030430. 5500 watt - 30 a
Portable Generator. The motor starts great but no current, nothing. Where should I start.
Hi Jack,

Double check the breaker. If you have a Voltmeter you could check and see if you are getting any power to the breaker and through the breaker. If you test and there is no power coming to the breaker then the problem will be within the generator itself. If this is the case you will need to take the generator to a repair shop. The problem could be with the stator, the rotor or any of the rectifiers or capacitors. Specialized equipment will be needed to diagnose which of these parts is bad.

I hope this helps with your repair!

I too have a Briggs & Stratton portable generator, model 030430-1, 5500 watt unit. My unit has never been used and was purchased new 6 years ago and it had been in garage storage since then. It was bought for emergency power outages such as the one we had last weekend. Unit starts fine, just not generating voltage needed. Continuity was checked on the breaker which measured 0.1 ohm when on, and open when off. I measured 3.145VAC at the harness connector which was disconnected from the back of the receptacle panel. I checked between neutral and hot (120V, DVM read 3.145VAC across the grey and red conductors. My instinct tells me the brush/rectifier assembly is faulty, but I do not know what the voltage level at the 2 terminals on the brush assembly should be. Do you know what this voltage reading should be at the 2 terminals (output) of the brush/rectifier diode assembly with unit running? Those two wires are going to the main stator harness. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I would like to suggest to any of you guys that are NOT getting any output or just a few Volts from your generators to"Flash The Field" on them as the rotor/stator coil has lost its magnetism. This occurs AFTER the unit has been sitting a long time without being ran. Flashing should restore power if the commutator brushes are not worn too bad.
Flashing the field is very easy. All you need are two drills, one HAS to be electric, the other one needs to just have a reverse on it.
That's what I was thinking also. Crank up the motor, plug in the electric drill. If it is reversible make sure it is set for forward (clockwise) the use a drill bit. Put one end in the chuck of the electric drill and then the other drill (can be cordless). Set it for forward which would make the electric drill turn reverse (counterclockwise). The electric drill would act like a little generator and excite the generator. But be careful because if the generator kicks in the electric drill will start up. Right Shotout?
Mr Roperdoug That is absolutely correct. This information should help a LOT of folks out there with "dead" generators.
