are you taking the spark module?
I had my unit tore down to be ready to pull the rotor, but put it back together after rechecking resistance. I found a new genuine Honda module with shipping and and tax for under $40. I am needing the my generator in two weeks so ordered the module since it is easy to change. Unfortunately by unit is no longer under warranty , even though it has under 20 hours of run time. I will let you know if the spark unit change works, if not I am back to taking it apart again.yea darn sealed magic box stuff..
kinda like the inverter unit...
I thought on the honda eu1000i I had a bad spark unit or inverter...
ended up the real issue was the rotor with missing magnets!!
I replaced the spark unit (130 bucks) before I did the tear down...
it was what the honda service manual said to do...
they still do not have in the manuals for the eu series to check and inspect the rotor magnets...
I had an eu3000i with a bad rotor 2 years back... I replaced it with new and it worked!
and sent the bad one in to honda!!
they sent a replacement for free.
they are pretty good about warranty issues.
Bought it new and bought the duel generator package and keep it in my trailer so it is pretty dry. I use the other unit more since it starts easier. Trying to get unit in tip top shape. Most of the time I run the units above 7000' elevation and obviously in remote areas where there is no hook-ups. FYI I bought a Trojan battery for my trailer, a little pricey but will pay for itself. To charge the battery, I will run a smart charger directly off the generator and the charger will start will high amps and work its way down to a float mode. Great set up for remote areas areas of the mountains. No KOA!For $40 its worth a shot with the ignition module.
Seriously...under 20 hours? There must be something a foot here. Have you owned it since new? Was it stored somewhere where it got wet?
