The control board that senses load (current) is not working.It should drop to low with no output current. (nothing running)

SOURCE: Dayton SU936C generator starts but no power

Check brushes. Must be at least 1/2 " long. Check all connections. To flash field: use 12 volt battery neg. - goes to machine ground. Pos + goes to the pos+ brush, the one that's not grounded. Give it a couple seconds on the 12 volts.

Ranger8+ diesel will not weld or generate.


Check for proper placement of all springs & linkage on carb / throttle. One of those springs and/or linkage pieces is largely responsible for idling UP the engine so that it will be able to operate the welder & generator. If it won't idle up, it won't work right.

Could be it's in the exercise mode. And when the exercise period ends it's shutting down.
Generac might have made this unit for Dayton.

Miller Trailblazer 302 Gas, will start but, but won't weld or generate. Does not show any readout on the digital meters, will not idle up, only idles at low RPM's. Any idea what may have...


Check the circuit breakers, one may have tripped or failed, such as CB4 which would also impact generator voltage output and since it controls power to the 24 control system- the first one to check or service. If you can access the rear terminals, check the voltage in operation at both lugs- if you do not get the same voltage reading at each lug of CB4 measuring them one at a time to chassis ground, the breaker is tripped or faulty .

CB1 is inline with the 240 VAC outlet and is ahead of CB2 and CB3

CB2 and CB3 are inline with the 120VAC outlets

In each case, switch them off then back on.

If you have the GFCI option, it may have been tripped by unsafe conditions.

When we purchased our home in '04, it had a Dayton generator in the basement, model no. 3W056A, serial no. 55658 F83. It runs on natural gas, or so I've been told: It has never run since...


Let me make sure I read your post corerectly ... You have a Natural Gas operated generator hooked up in your basement? That's a train wreck waiting to happen! How is the exhaust vented out and how air tight is your basement? What keeps the carbon monoxide from reaching the rest of the house, when it's in operation?

Generators are a great back up. I have a 15 kw, that carries most of the house, plus 3 pumps during a power outage (Due to severe electrical storms, recently) we have had 2 power outages in 5 days. However, the National Building Code says "NO" to any type of generator being operated inside a residence or building of any type.

Without trying to sound critical, you need to rethink your plans of getting your generator running again. At least in your basement. Have it moved outside first and check with your local officials regarding clearances to any openings in the house. Or as you said "Just scrap it."

I sincerely hope this helps you make the right decision. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dayton 30' pedestal fan will run for an hour or so, seems to run hot.. there is slight burning smell. then fan makes little noise and shuts down.


Whats happening is that your fan is overheating (usually due to a loss of lubrication in the bearings), and the motor's thermal cutoff is kicking in (due to overtemperature), and shutting down the motor.
This thermal cutoff circuit is installed in consumer motors to prevent fires.

You have two solutions:
(1) disassemble your nice 30" pedestal fan (I've done this a few times - any handy guy/gal can do it),
and lubricate (with automotive bearing grease ($3 at any auto parts store), or 3-in-1 oil for those spots that won't take bearing grease) the bearings, and
reassemble. Re-lubricate on a regular schedule to prevent recurrence.
(2) buy a new one. Give your old fan to the kid on the block who thinks he/she can fix anything &
tell him/her it just needs to be lubricated.
