Question about Electrical Supplies

Open Question

I bought a Homelight Husky 2250 Watt Generator brand new. We put oil and gas in it and it runs very well. I am however not getting any power output. It has a push button AC circuit breaker and the red light on the GFCI outlet does not come on when you reset it. Am I not doing something right?

    Update: I took the genererator back to Home Depot and exchanged it for another one. Same like before. It runs beatiful but there is no power. I must not be doing something right. It has a GFCI outlet. The red light on the outlet does not come on when you test and reset it. It has a push button circut breaker that has no tension when you push it. No click or spring lock like feel. Just loose. These are brand new machines.

SOURCE: no output voltage at all

The generator needs to be 'flashed' to bring back the excitation for output. Is this something you can do? Let me know and I can help you...

SOURCE: mitsubishi mgb 4000 wiring diagram

Here is a manual for a newer mge model. I don't think your going to find a manual on the older mgb around and they tend to be very similar from one model to another so it should help. Though you should be able to get parts.

As for the gfci brand, I have not had any problems with any of the brands out there. So the cheapest is the best. The 30amp socket could be 110 or 220vac. If there is a selector switch on your machine. If not, there should be a NEMA number on the face of the socket (ie 15-5R). The R stands for receptical while a P stands for plug.

Here is a plug configuratio diagram that will help identify your plug and the voltage it puts out. These are standard so you can be sure that if it the same plug it will put out the same power. Be carefull to ensure which side is larger or has a tab is correct.

While replacing the plug just swap wire for wire in the same place as your new plug. Gold connector to gold and silver to silver.

The inside of a small generator is very similar and if this don't help I can walk you through any connections you have questions on. Pictures would help if it comes to this.

SOURCE: 10,000 watt generator 220 plug doesn't work

Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.

SOURCE: engine runs but no power aat outlet????

Start with brushes and rings. Make sure your rings are clean and the your brushes have a good length. Flash the fields with 12V battery. Apply positive to the brush nearest the bearing and negative to the back brush, while genset is running. Use rubber gloves when doing this and keep hands away from rotating parts. You should see the voltage climb when you flash the fields. This would mean that you need a voltage regulator. If voltage does not climb, then you will need a new genset.

3650 generator won't start!!


I assume that the spark plug are good and the gas line is clear. Try to adjust the gas line supply and default engine startup revolution settings try it full half and minimum back and forth it works. Other gen sets requires a mix of oil with its gas, please do it when it is required with exact proportion. Hope this helps. Goodluck.
