I'm not sure what you mean by "wire my 5hp compressor to a 11hp 5500 watts generator?" The compressor should have a three prong plug-in cord from the pressure regulator and the generator should have a three prong outlet to plug it into. Do not try to wire the compressor directly to the power generator (dynamo), the current must go through the circuit board then to the outlet to make sure your compressor motor is getting the proper current.

    The cord you have is for 220 volt applications. If your compressor is 110V you'd be better off getting a 12 or 14 guage 110V pigtail or cord and wiring that in; black to hot, white to common, green to ground. If your compressor is 220V, contact an electrician to make sure you connect the wires properly.

Go to the website for the motor manufacturer- it will show how these capacitors are to be wired. You'll need the motor model number.

5500 watt generator will not run my 2hp air compressor


5500 watt generator will meet the 1491.4 watt requirement of the 2 hp compressor motor
given that 5500 watts generator is rated continuously at around 4500 watts and will handle spikes to the 5500 watts when electrical components start there should be plenty left
consider the possibility or a motor below full capacity, carby problem ( jets blocked , water, blocked air filter not getting full throttle from the governor lever, worn rings, type of fuel in use --E mix)

We have a Valsi 5500 watt generator that isn't putting enough voltage out to run everything in out small travel trailer. It runs the lights but doesnt push out enough voltage to carry the A/C, microwave,...


How long have you had this generator?
Has the generator worked on all of these loads before?
Model 5500 is a 5500 Watt generator which could easily be 5500 watts (Peak) and not continuous.

Your AC is an inductive load.
Your lights are resistive loads

An inductive load can cause issues when starting due to an increased current demand at start up that some generators cringe under. Do the lights flicker or are they stable? I'd say your diodes on your stator are working if you have light stability but you haven't provided nearly enough information for a detailed solution.

I'm sure you have enough voltage but you aren't getting enough current to run specific loads. How many watts is your AC? How many watts for your microwave? Both of these units demand a great deal of energy to run and when you place too much demand on your generator, it will choke it out and eventually, will cause damage to the generator. You may consider getting a beefier generator with a greater amount of wattage output.


Seeing these specs online and noting what you are trying to run, you have an undersized generator and need to get one that can produce a greater amount of running wattage (as well as peak wattage).

Onan 4 ky generator quits when a/c is turned on? Has no other load on it.


Is your generator 4 kW or 4000 Model 5500.
If 5500 as on the picture over your question the reason may be short in the receptacles or low voltage/ rpm.
If 4 kW MicroQuiet, there the reasons may be too much, that you will nead a troubleshooting manual.

How many watts would you get from a generator rated at 11hp and 5.8 kva. thanks


kva = kilo-volt-amps

watts = volts x amps = va

Therefore, 5.8kva = 5800 watts
