Are you certain you weren't starting my Honda generator the dealer won't warranty.:biggrin2::biggrin2::biggrin2:Another Goodman Natural Gas, 80%-er sputters and pops a little upon startup, but disappears shortly after. Did not have an opportunity to watch it during, yet. Partner will be coming to look at this one. This a gas pressure problem possibly?
Tap lightly all around the edge of the brass cap screw? Penetrating oil? (nope, might get into the adjustment screw part) Larger screwdriver? TNT?That's the cap I tried to take out. Had a pretty large screwdriver, but apparently not large enough. You can see the damage I did to the slot. I probably should've lied and said somebody else did it, but probably only grasshoppas do that sort of thing, and you would know I lied! It's very tight.
Someone also really cranked on OUT Pressure TAP plug also, or they had put a little thread seal around the top edge. Or maybe that's normal? Almost gave up on that one, and I'm no weakling. No damage to plug, or my Allen bit. Just had to hold the pressure on it and watch closely until it started to move. Was really a bear, honest *****.
Now I think about it, long handle allen wrench would have been better (leverage).
I agree, and there is a tech coming back again today (my partner). I was just trying to prepare it for him. I'm not dangerous like I sound, just got a little slaphappy last night when posting. Thx for jumping in...Call a tech to sort this out; very dangerous having posts telling how to check gas pressure.
This is not something i would ever attempt.
I would imagine it would be, although it didn't feel damp today. However, there was no apparent corrosion on the surfaces of those particular items, but I reckon the threads could still be susceptible, maybe?Damp basement?
Sounds like all those fittings are corroded in.
