In this video, I walk through the process of cleaning the carburetor on a Generac 4000 XL generator. This generator ran fine when the choke was applied, but the engine surged as it hunted for fuel when the choke was opened all the way. Cleaning the carburetor resolved this issue and the generator now runs fine. After the video, I did order a replacement float bowl gasket and replaced it.

  1. I ran my generator for a few minutes yesterday and after I turned it off, fuel was leaking badly out of the air filter. I guess my needle valve pin is bad. I’m hoping I can make it through this hurricane without losing power. Thanks for the video.

  2. What is the rubber stopper for next to the center tube in the float bowl? You didn't comment on that in the video. Should that be removed to clean inside the stopped tube? Is there a jet in there?

  3. Had I found this video first I could have saved over $100. Heading for the workbench right now to clean the old carb.
    Really great video. Thanks

  4. These carbs get clogged so easily. Even by running all the gas out the carb after each use it still becomes clogged over a short period of time. Adding a fuel filter is a must.
