I have had luck stopping the surging on a Honda generator. Remove the air filter, manually increase the throttle if possible. Then place the palm of your hand over the carburetor and remove quickly before it dies. Repeat this until hopefully the surging stops.
Above poster mentioned a complete rebuild of the carburetor but from what I was told when the dealer replaced my carburetor when my unit was new. Is that they are throw away carburetors and not rebuild-able. I don't know if that is true however with the information coming from an RV dealer.
Arlan, You very well my be right about it being a throw away carb in this case, so it would defininately be worth investing a few dollars in some of the cleaners. That's the way of the world these days, just throw it away and buy a new one, it's getting to the point that it costs more to rebuild vs replace.
An example just replaced a perfectly good dishwasher, the racks where rusting, $400 for new racks, $399 for a new dishwasher.
