I am having trouble getting my 10,000 Tri fuel generator to run on propane.

I am having trouble getting my 10,000 Tri fuel generator to run on propane.
Asked by: Joe
TRY MOVING LEVER ON FUEL REGULATOR IN SMALL INCREMENTS TOWARDS NATURAL GAS TO SEE IF IT WILL RUN BETTER. PROPANE RUNS WITH HIGHER PRESSURES THAN NATURAL GAS AND THE REGULATOR IS SUPOSE TO ADJUST FOR EACH BUT IT MAYBE OFF JUST A BIT.

does this generator come with a battery for electric start?

The use guide states to use the pull cord to start. Is there a difference when using natural gas?
Asked by: Mark07719
Some do. You need to check with the dealer or manufacturer.

10,000-Watt 1 Tri-Fuel Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I owned my Powerland 10,000-Watt generator a couple of years now. Feature wise it's a great unit.... I owned my Powerland 10,000-Watt generator a couple of years now. Feature wise it's a great unit. The electric start is nice and I really liked the unit. I bought it as a whole house backup generator. I added a quick discount fittings to my house main gas line and to the generator. I added transfer switch and tested the unit on gas. As stated by other reviewers you need as big as gas line 3/4" as you can get to feed the unit. It didn't run as good as it does on gasoline. I had to mess with selection lever to find the best position to run it. I run the unit every now and then to keep it running ready for when I need it. I change the oil as recommended but yesterday while out camping it seized up. I checked the oil and it was still clean and full. No burnt smell or signs of problems. The unit will not move with pull starter or electric start. I keep the unit in my garage with the cover on it and take really good care of the unit. I wanted it to last for a long time. it looks brand new. I am not happy about this at all. It is now a $1200 boat anchor. I hope they stand behind their product because I really liked the unit. Karl

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerland Generator Purchased unit and it arrived via truck. Delivery was scheduled for afternoon, but driver arrived in morning. Just happened to be at home. Driver used pallet lift to bring to garage door of home. Assembly was easy. Added oil and gasoline and unit started immediately. Placed unit under low load and ran for 2 hours. Following day made connection to natural gas supply and unit started after 2-3 attempts and ran smoothly. Did not place under load. Pleased with purchase at this point. Will exercise unit under full load when connection to home electrical system is completed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice generator if your powering less than 30amps I purchased this generator for work to run tools and a welder when needed in the field and the fact that it runs on different types of fuel, particularly LP. Hook up was easy and it started right up on the LP. We tried to run our Lincoln 225 arc welder off of the 240v 50amp outlet and it trips the breaker welding on 70amps. I called the company and they told me anything over 30 amps will trip the breaker. I asked why they had a 50amp outlet and was told that is the way it was designed. Doesn't really make sense to me but other than that it is a descent generator for home use or to get you through power outages and such. It is quiet and has a variety of outlets to use. It also has a small display with the voltage it is putting out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use I received this generator and while the manual was just so so it was easy to set up and started on the first try using gasoline. It easily changed to propane and one again easily started. I have not yet tried it on natural gas, still need to get a connection installed but do not expect any issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerland tri fuel generator I found this generator ran great on gas and propane, not so great at first on NG.Was using a 3/8 gas hose at first and the motor seem to starve for fuel. Change to 1/2 hose and it ran much better. Don't try to start on NG, you will kill the battery and want to pull you hair out. The best way is to start on gas, once the motor warms up turn the gas valve off, as the motor starts to starve slowly turn the NG valve on. Remember to have the choke completely open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tri Fuel The first deficiency to overcome was adding the wheel kit which came without instructions. The next wrinkle was that there was no propane gas hose with the generator, so it could only run on gasoline as delivered. A propane hose for this unit was not available at HD or hardware stores. I found someone to make one for me. When I started this unit up it seemed fuel starved and ran rough on propane, but it ran fine on gasoline. The propane /natural gas valve was in the right position for propane but wouldn't idle up until I moved the valve toward the natural gas setting. When I reached the natural gas setting it starved again. I moved it back toward the propane setting and half way there it idled up. I was prepared to leave it half way in between but moved it fully to propane when something must have cleared from the valve. Now it's fine. Also check any hose clamps on the propane supplies as I found some loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has NG restrictions otherwise nice unit If Hooking up to natural gas, there are restrictions. Manufacturer says you need 12-14" of Water column or 1/2 to 1 psi. Will need to verify before purchasing. Otherwise Has all the features except: Remote Start and hr meter. Well built machine. Hope this helps you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 10,000 peak watt tri fuel generator I ordered the unit on HomeDepot online and it arrived for in store for pick up. This is convenient because I my not be home for a home delivery and I can pick up at my convenience. I took it home and assembled the unit. It was straight forward wheels and handles. The one thing you have to make sure to hook up correctly is the ground wire from the battery. I've read older posts where guys couldn't get the battery start to work for them and I think its because they didn't secure the ground cable to the bolt above the pull start on generator housing. They put a convenient red arrow sticker next to it so its easy to find. I added oil and set the proper switches for 120v output. Hit the starter button and it fired right up. I let it warm up a bit and started plugging in appliances for testing. All worked well. I then used the fuel saver feature where it kicks up or down the engine speed based on power demand.No demand and the idle drops to a low rpm almost to the point where it sounds like its going to cut out. I would suggest making sure the unit is warmed up before using this feature. My goal with this unit is to run it off my natural gas main to the house if the power goes out. This will give me an endless supply of fuel for extended outages. I'm having a cert. plumber install a 3/4 quick disconnect fitting on the main feed into the house. I having an electrican add a quick disconnect 50 amp inlet box and tranfer switch to the house. If power goes out I flip transfer switch, plug in gas and electric let the unit warm up and the plug in the generator for whole house power. Total investment of around $2200 which is a lot cheaper that a whole house generator installed and that only gets use when the power goes out. I now have a 10,000 generator for power outages and for camping with my RV. I'll get my money back in camping use alone! Its also a good selling point for my house having it wired for back up power. The generator has lots of features for multiple uses 120V/240V etc. It claims to be computer safe < 5% distortion. I haven't tested that yet and am a little worried about that claim. To be safe my expensive stuff I will run through surge/backpower units until I can check out the output distortion. The unit is not excessively loud and gets even quieter in fuel saver mode. I have more testing to do with the unit but so far I'm happy with it and all the features. According to the manufacture you can only run 12 hours straight and then have to cool down 2 hours. So keep that in mind for extended outages.
