it seems to be the standard that the rating or model ??1000 or ??1500 or ??2500 or ??5000 or??5500 or ??6500 is the kv rating of the gen-set regardless of straight or inverter
so if yours is EF1000 it will be 1000 watts or 1 kv
remember that most electric drills are 1000 watt units so a unit this small is mostly good for lights, charging batteries, small compressors for tyres
My guess would be that some failsafe is in action here. It is possible that either a fuse OR the breaker is bad, or is not resetting in the case of the breaker button. Yamaha likes to idiot proof these things. Some of them disable the sparkplug if the oil gets low. Forget about just a warning light.
Hi, I have the same generator and I pull the load and it is fine. The engine RPM is controlled by the
governor. The voltage will not come up until the RPM is at full. First see what the RPM problem is and then check the voltage. Open the cover and look to see if the carb linkage is hooked up , if it is you mite have carb problem and address that first. Hope that helps.
Not sure exactly what you mean but here is what I know:
1 - You shouldn't have to use any choke at all once the engine has started and warmed up, if you have to apply some choke to get the engine to run correctly then you have a carb problem. Clean and service the carb and see if that makes it all better.
2 - The idle speed is set by a small screw on the body of the carb itself, if it's set too low the engine can shut off rather than idle. Make small adjustments until you get it right.
3 - Dirty air cleaners can cause problems with idle
4 - fouled and/or misgapped spark plugs can cause idle problems
