Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

How to test portable generator stator for short in windings

You will need what the factory resistances valuea re supposed to be, cold. Then use a high quality ohm meter with 3 decimal places, disconenct all wires off the stator. Check each wire with a meter to the ground frame, if there is any value, stator is shorted. Then check between stator wires ie L1 L2 and compare resistance value with factory values.

How to remove and replace the stator from a champion generator

You don't state what model you have. I just replaced the rotor on a Champion Model 41302 but removing the stator is the same process.

You will need to remove the muffler and muffler outer protection. Remove the bolts that hold the muffler outer protection. Remove the two bolts that hold muffler to the engine exhaust.

Take a block of wood and place it under the engine to support the generator. The supports on the generator head end will be removed so the generator will tip down and make it difficult to remove the stator.

Remove the generator end cover by removing two bolts.

Remove the two bolts that hold the muffler to the end cover.0834b898-460f-41f6-b0a0-6704ae605277.jpg

Remove the bolt that holds the ground from the generator to the frame.


Remove the two bolts that hold the end cover supports to the rubber supports to the frame.



Disconnect the quick connect electrical connectors and remove the 120/240 volt wiring from the terminal block. See second picture below.



Remove the ground from generator to wiring cable assembly by removing the bolt that connects it to the end cover. Yellow and green wire in picture above.

Remove the bolt from DC brush assembly and pull out of generator. Picture below shows assembly removed.


The stator and cover now can be removed from the generator. Take a rubber mallet to tap on the back of the brackets on the end cover to loosen it. The rotor bearing is seated in the end cover making it hard to remove by pulling by hand. Once lose pull straight out.

The stator can now be removed from the generator end by taking the four bolts out.

The installation process is the reverse.

Where is the stator on the model 580 3256 generator

On a motor or generator, the stator is the non-moving frame or housing. The stator holds the stationary electrical windings.


The rotating windings are on the armature or rotor. The rotor is supported by and spins in ball or sleeve bearings that are on the end bells (or caps) of the motor assembly. Power is passed to them via brushes in the stator to slip rings or commutator on the rotor.

What is the stator

The stator is the outside part of the generator with the windings. The rotor is the part that turns inside the stator.

What does a stator and rotor look like on NorthStar 5500W generator

The stator is the series of copper windings inside the generator (does not move,). The stator will have several pairs of leads connected to the control panel. The rotor also has winding however is the center revolving shaft. The rotor creates a magnet that excites the stator. The rotor could be brush type having two or more rings where carbon brushes make contact or brushless having built-in diodes and voltage regulator (some not all). You can obtain resistance reading from your dealer to test the windings in the stator. You can easily test the brush type rotor by applying 12v (one or two amp) dc to the rings and test for good magnet at metal part of rotor ( use thin metal blade). Good luck

I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator. It runs but I am getting no juice out of it. Won't weld or put out power to run anything.

measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.

Powermate 5500 no Power on plugs, shorted stator symptoms?

Stator resistances should be around .5 ohms. This may look like a short to you. Unhook the regulator from the field brushes and put 12 volts on the field winding. you should get output to partially light a bulb..maybe 60 volts. Remember to use 12 volts dc on the fields and don't reverse the polarity.
If there is output then the avr(voltage regulator) is probably bad. If there is no voltage then check the resistance on the brush contacts. through the bushes and field. Maybe around 25 ohms. Your generator manual can give the exact ranges. No resistance then clean the brushes and slip rings and check again. No resistance...take reading on the slip rings. No field...bad rotor. Good luck....keep posting until problem is resolved.

My Guardian 16KW

I have never heard that generators need to be perfectly level to prevent generator damage. It doesn't compute -- auto generators/alternators run at all sorts of angles -- so do motors. And for the damage to occur in 2 hours running doesn't sound right either.

It does sound like the generator itself is not working/generating properly, but I doubt it was caused by the slab.
