Get a DMM that can measure frequency (Hz), then check that with no load and the idle control set to off the frequency is 61.5 Hz - If it isn't you have to troubleshoot why it isn't and correct it.
You should also check the idle control mechanism if there is one on the generator, with it on the generator should start up at regular speed, then slow to idle speed, then rev back up to regular speed when you draw current from the generator. To check it use the DMM to measure the speed at startup ( should be 61.5 Hz), when it idles down (about 37 Hz), when you're drawing power from any other outlet ( pretty close to 60 Hz). If the generator has idled down and you shut off the idle control it should rev back up immediately.

I have a 98 Mazda millenia it will start but then dies


The alternator might be shot. It is what charges the battery and keeps the engine running while the car is on. There are many other things it could be, though. How does it sound? Does it slowly die, or suddenly cut out? Does it always start easily, or is it getting harder to turn over each time you start it?

How many turns of low idle screw for 1986 johnson 30 hp, ELCDM


Start with one. Bring the speed down slowly. If the motor "sneezes" and dies ,open more, maybe one-half turn and restart. If engine now runs as you idle down, slowly turn in the idle screw until the motor starts to speed up without moving the throttle. A little more and it should sneeze again. From the point where it started to speed up, back the adjustment about one eighth to one quarter turn open. See how it runs. If you have to open the idle screw way out or it keeps sneezing you probably need to clean the carb.

Vanguard V Twin 18 hp. monted in Cushman Motor scooter, runs great at W.O.T and at on quarter throttle, misses at range inbetween


Sounds like your carb needs the fuel/air mix adjusted..uses all the gas at high speed but has excess at low speeds...find your adjusting screw and at med throttle slowly screw it clockwise until the engine starts to sputter then back it out until it starts to sputter again then continue to do this until you reach ideal mix where it runs the best it can..then go slowly through the throttle up and down..when set..unjust your idle speed screw to your ideal idle speed..if this dies not fix ..carb will bed cleaned or rebuilt. Good luck.. Note always push or pull your throttle handle slowly to position avoids gas load up causing sputter and backfire.

My Freelander engine is missing out, and I am experiencing loss of power. Could it be plugs?


definitely...check wires as well....disconnect wires, one at a time with engine running (don't shock yourself) if the cylinder is firing properly the engine will run worse or die when you disconnect it...plug it back in and move on to the others until you find the cylinder that doesn't change how the engine runs, when disconnected...this is the problem cylinder...you can check the plug simply by swapping it to a known good cylinder...same with wire...there are other ways to check them, but i am assuming you have hand tools only to keep this simple....a plug wire can also arc through the wire insulation to ground and cause a miss...this can usually be easily spotted by running engine in the dark and watching for a blue spark around where the plug wires run...it will show up brightly in the dark...hope i have not lost or confused you and i hope this helps

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.
