Question about Honda Electrical Supplies
New Honda gen (less than 50 hours) powers down after about 9 hours continuous running. After troubleshooting w/ manual, found spark plug wire was loose, reattached it, then started right up no problem. However, only ran for 15 minutes, then shut down again. Restarted a 3rd time and ran for another 15 minutes, then shut down again. Restarted 4th time after disconnecting BERG system gas tank and replacing original Honda gas cap, ha s been running good for 20 minutes now.

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

I have an HM100 on a 5500 watt gen with the same problem. This motor calls for a J17 spark plug, but I found using a J19 (hotter) plug solved the problem. I think the J17 doesn't get hot enough for a complete combustion burn so it act like fuel starvation thus resulting in the black sooty and wet plug.

the worst thing for generator and compressors are to sit up. when you do sit them up put stabil in the gas. run it and then run the gas out of the carburator. now, make sure the gas in the tank is good and has no water or trash. check the fuel line that it is in good conditon and not plugged. pull the carberator and clean varnish out and clean jets. soak it over nite in varsol or parts cleaner. check to see if you have a low oil shut off. oil level must be correct. check your exhaust to make sure it isn't plugged. some have a little screen that get coated with carbon and won't let it exhaust.( fuel in, spark, exhaust out)

I would test the coil by removing it from the circuit, and attaching a properly gapped spark plug to the secondary, then apply and un-apply 12 volts to the primary. If you get a good strong spark on the spark plug tip each time you apply or remove the 12V, then you know that the coil is OK. This doesn't give you a measurement, but you don't know what the voltage is supposed to be anyway.
You might also try measuring the resistance across the primary and across the secondary and compare these numbers to a known good coil (anything similar should be in the same ballpark). Make sure to do that with the coil removed from any other connections and short the terminals together to remove any residual charge before you try to measure the resistance.
I hope this helps, good luck Al K

Make sure all the linkages and springs are hooked up on the throttle system and where they pivit is clean. Try moving the linkage by hand gently to make sure there is no sticking and litely oil where the linkages connect. If everything is working properly your internal governor has to be replaced.
