    Ok at the risk of kicking off the usual and highly boring debate on the merits of Red generators against Yellow generators or even Blue one......

    Where, preferably in South Wales can I get my Kipor IP2000 generator serviced?

    Thanks all.

    may be a daft question Peter, but apart from an oil change and clean/wash the air filter what else is there.....?

    none adjustable electronic ignition, spark plug will be good for many hundreds of hours use and modern plugs dont like being cleaned, basic carb wont need adjusting and the electric output is none adjustable.

    Its difficult to start and when it does sometimes won't go into full speed? Sounds like a sewing machine on steroids. Oh cuts out when you swich from start to run.

    good enough reason for a service then Peter...i thought you meant a routine service :Doh:

    sounds like a partly blocked main jet and not the easiest of carburettors to remove :Sad:

    Although I worked in the motor manufacturing industry for some 38 years, the workings of the internal combustion engine are and I hope always will be a complete mystery to me !

    Cheers
