The rectifier convers AC current to DC current by blocking the wrong polarity of charge from the altenator allowing the correct polarity charge to enter the battery and run the electrical stuff on your bike. If the rectifier or Diode Pack fails, you will not be able to charge your battery and if it is short circuit will flatten the battery very quickly. There should be some form of regulator after the rectifier that stops the battery from being over charged.
Hope this explains it for you.

The battery couldn't charge , how could i check electric chargine systm of the engine? have already replaced a new battery and also rectify . hope this could be wiring issue...

Why start changing things, if you don't know how it works? As a repair engineer, I first establish what is defect and that part I then replace wit a new one. On al motors and cars, is a voltage regulator to keep the max voltage in check. It decides if the battery must be charged or not. The regulator can be mechanical, but modern regulators are electronic and more complex. But there also can be a bad connection or a broken cable in your mother.

Suzuki boulevard rectifier problem

Suzuki recalled the regulator/rectifiers in 2011. Check with your dealer, however get a voltmeter installed at the same time as the replacement caused $3,000.00 damage to my electrical system by overcharging my battery and Suzuki won't stand behind it!!!!!!

Hi, J33pkk and the usual suspects are:
1. Voltage regulator/rectifier not grounded.
2. Engine ground wire loose or broken.
3. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier module.
4. Loose or broken wires in charging circuit.
5. Faulty stator and/or rotor.

It should be him. Check battery when not conected?!
But I realy think it's rectifier cousing problem!

2626 charging not support problem diagram

Recheck your phone with another charger which is amply available in the friends circle, once confirmed the charger can be replaced. There are cases in which the circuit functions improperly , sometimes the capacitor can be replaced to rectify the faulty.
other wise as these needs to be broken open the charger can be replaced.
If your charger test also give the same result, then the battery or the charging circuit in the phone is faulty.

I'VE got a coleman powermate 5500, i've got no output from the plugs. i've tried the circuit breakers. is there a fuse somewhere?

There is no fuse. Most common problems are loose connector from panel to gen set, worn brushes, faulty rectifier board or needs to be spiked (more serious reasons but lets not go there). Brushes and panel easy to check, remove cover to gen. and look at brushes for good contact to com. rings. Remove rectifier board from mount and look at capacitor for leaks or swelling. Replace as needed. Parts are available at jackssmallengine. com There are many ways to spike gen. as seen when you google the subject, however I just use a one amp 12v battery charger (or any small dc power supply 1/2 amp to 1 amp) and very quickly/split second contact brush connector while engine is running. Mind polarity, you must know which brush is positive. Usually on coleman the brush closest to bearing is positive. Spiking works immediately, if no joy, more serious problems exist. Dont worry, you cant break anything doing this, remember it is already broken. Post again if you have other question. Good luck

Surely you can find an NTE580 equivilant in the UK. This is just a 600v 3a silicon diode. I would think you could find a substitute for this at any electronic part supplier in the UK. The NTE numbering system is the same as the ECG system and everyone subs by these numbering systems. Good luck.
