I have not worked on this model, however other Wenco generators have a capacitor the retains a charge to aid in the beginning of the power cycle. Also diodes could be leaking. Simple check with meter but parts must be removed or isolated to properly test. Be sure to short leads of cap before testing. More information is available at

Will it hurt if I use a 50 amp breaker in place of a 20 amp breaker on my 4500 watt Winco? generator

It will only hurt the generator if a load in excess of 20 amps causes an overload.

I hooked up. it dont produce power. It has set for a long time. why

If the generator doesn't have a auto field field flasher it possibe it has lost its residual magnetism. If also it is a manual pull stater the same thing can happen.

Simply reflash the rotor field and it should again generate power. The procedure varies from manufacture to manufacture.

Generator's motor continues to run butb generator stops supplying power after 10 minutes.

this model has an electronic voltage regulator this might be your problem sometimes when gen sets are left outside the little critters and such get in there and build there homes on top of something and that makes it get hot when we finnaly use the gen set , this overheats the part and hence we need to replace the part , if left outside I take fine mesh screen and cover all the air gaps in my stuff cus this has got me in past more than once

9000kw winco generator

varying load causes varying operation...= normal
i.e: generator reacts via voltage regulator to compensate amp draw.

No ac output on a winco 9000 multi fuel home power genarator

How long has the unit sat?
After long periods the rotor loses it's residual magnetism and may have to be field flashed for a few seconds. Also check that the rotor slip rings are clean and shiney

Power loss

950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

Coleman Powermate 6250/500 PM0545005 has power to just one side of the 120/240 outlet. the 120 volt outlets have none. Ran just fine onr week ago

The capacitor has no bearing as you have output on one leg. Take or have an electrician check the power from L1 to N and L2 to N right as it comes off the generator stator, before any breakers and receptacles. If you have no power still on one leg, the stator is bad. The rotor is fine as you indicate you have power on one leg, you may have lost one set of windings in sthe stator. Good Luck

Winco WC12000HE won't start...fired up last night and I'm getting nothing today.

Sounds like a fuel problem, check your filter if there is one. Check fuel in tank, make sure there isn't a valve off. Check your choke if you have a manual choke.

Used generator after katrena worked fine but now wont generate any etric power

If its been sitting a long time you may have to flash the rotating fields. ( residual magnatism is to low or gone ),Try plugging a drill in the receptacle while generator is running and turn the chuck as fast as you can in the direction where you can feel resistance.If this doesn't work. put 12vdc( car battery works fine) to your collector rings for 1 second or so. be sure to observe polarity. you put positive to pos. and negative to neg.
