    Default Konler generator gas problems

    I have a 2005 kohler 5E generator and twice last year I had to take the carburetor out and clean it and then it started right back up and now this year I have to do it again. Iím just wondering why I have to do this so many times or is this pretty normal. Thank you for any input in advance.

    Ayuh,..... My guess is,... There's probably crap in the fuel tank, 'n whatevers 'tween the tank, 'n carb,....

    Clean the fuel supply system, Throw that carb in the garbage can and buy a new one... They are cheap and set up correct right out of the box.
