Predator 3500 generator leaking gas


If some one could help me I'll be grateful. I bought a Predator 3500 2 year ago and was working perfect. But now it is leaking gas through one of the gas drains when it's ON. Did some one knows why is this happening and how to fix it?

Welcome to the forums.

Thread moved to the small engine forum. I changed your thread notification to instant so that you are notified of the new thread location. You can change it back to weekly if desired.

Usually when you have gas coming out of the unit when it's not running..... the float in the carburetor bowl is stuck and not shutting off the gas into the carb.

I agree, float inlet needle stuck open. Super common problem with generators because people don't drain the float bowl of gas before storing, so the gas turns to gum and varnish and makes the float stick and clogs the jet.
