GENERATOR output: while the DG4300 generator is running there is

The indicator lights are on at the outlets but the outlets are not live.

    Although the 110 V outlets were dead, the 220 V outlet was live; so I knew that the generator itself wasn't fried. I took apart the control panel. The circuit breakers were not the problem: they had not tripped and tested OK on continuity. Since I put the panel back together I find that one set of 110 V duplex outlets is now functioning! The other remains dead. They are protected by separate GFI devices. Either I failed to check both GFI's before I opened the panel or some how one GFI got new life after I opened the panel and fiddled with stuff. Anyhow, I'm going to replace that bad GFI ( maybe both of them) when I get the chance. Thanks Carl for your effort. Joe D

What is causing the battery to drain?


Running the car will drain the battery it if it's not charging ! An if your charging light is on it isn't charging ! Did you check power an grounds on the alternator ? There is a single heavier wire on the back of the alternator, this should have battery voltage ! You may want to take this to a ASE certified repair shop !
Functionality
With the ignition switch in the RUN position, voltage is applied through the warning indicator I circuit 904 (LG/RD) to the voltage regulator. This turns the regulator on, allowing current to flow from battery sense A circuit 35 (OG/LB) to the generator field coil. When the engine is started, the generator begins to generate alternating current (AC) which is internally converted to direct current (DC). This current is then supplied to the vehicle's electrical system through the output (B+) terminal of the generator.
Once the generator begins generating current, a voltage signal is taken from the generator stator and fed back to the regulator S circuit 4 (WH/BK). This voltage feedback signal (typically half the battery voltage) is used to turn off the warning indicator.
With the system functioning normally, the generator output current is determined by the voltage of the A circuit 35 (OG/LB). The A circuit 35 (OG/LB) voltage is compared to a set voltage internal to the regulator, and the regulator controls the generator field current to maintain the correct generator output.
The set voltage will vary with temperature and is typically higher in cold temperatures and lower in warm temperatures. This allows for better battery recharge in the winter and reduces the chance of overcharging in the summer.
Battery Positive Output (B+) Circuit 38 (BK/OG)
The generator output is supplied through the battery positive output (B+) terminal on the back of the generator to the battery and electrical system.
I Circuit 904 (LG/RD)
The I (ignition) circuit 904 (LG/RD) is used to turn on the voltage regulator. This circuit is powered up with the ignition switch in the RUN position. This circuit is also used to turn the charging system warning indicator on if there is a fault in the charging system operation.
A Circuit 35 (OG/LB)
The A (battery sense) circuit 35 (OG/LB) is used to sense battery voltage. This voltage is used by the regulator to determine generator output. This circuit is used to supply current to the generator field (rotor). The amount of current supplied to the rotor will determine generator output.
S Circuit 4 (WH/BK)
The S (stator) circuit 4 (WH/BK) is used to feed back a voltage signal from the generator to the regulator. This voltage is used by the regulator to turn off the charging system warning indicator. The S circuit is fed back externally on external mounted regulator generators.

  1. Check the operation of the charging system warning indicator lamp (instrument cluster). Normal operation is as follows:
    • With the ignition switch OFF, the charging system warning indicator should be OFF.
    • With the ignition switch in RUN and the engine off, the charging system warning indicator light should be on.
    • With the engine running, the charging system warning indicator light should be off.
  1. Verify the battery condition. Refer to Section 414-01 .

How to wire in an on-off switch for ceiling light from power source going to living room.


Pretty easy if you can get the wires from the existing wall outlet. Just run a wire from existing outlet to the where you want the new light. Install inside an approved ceiling electrical outlet box and then run another wire to where you want the switch or switches. If you go to home depot or the library you can look at the books with diagrams on how to wire it. You can skip the wall switch if you use a light with a pull chain.

Gentron gg3502d outlets have no power


First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

Tv will not power up



Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

No indicator lights Whirlpool wdt710paym dishwasher


If it doesn't run and you have no indicator lights, check the circuit breaker for that outlet. If it is ok, test the output voltage at the plug-in for the machine (115Vac). If it is "live" then check inside the control panel (turn off the breaker first) for a fuse that appears blown. If no fuse problem, CAREFULLY (with breaker back on) see if the main switch is getting power. If it is getting power, the control board is shot...replace it!

I have a AO Smith GPS 75 200. The power is on, however the temp control does not light up and nothing is working. Is the White Roger thermostat gas valve shot, is there some test I could do to make sure...


You have AO Smith tank-type power vent water heater with FVIR flame arrestor.
1) I believe this system has White Rodgers intellivent gas valve, with led indicator lights.
To test if valve is operational:
-NORMAL operating mode displays no lights on gas valve.
-Unplug unit from electrical outlet and plug back in. All lights on gas control should display for 1-5 seconds.
-Press BOTH Hotter and Colder temperature buttons for one second to 'wake up' the control, and release buttons and LED will display temperature.
-Press Hotter or Colder and see if any indicator light shows on gas valve.
This will give baseline if gas valve is functioning.
-Intellivent gas valve requires outlet that is wired 100% correctly. Test outlet with circuit analyzer.
-Water heater must be properly grounded for intellivent to operate.

2) Open following link to identify gas valve and download possible service manual with error codes and testing procedure. Service manual is a large file and will probably not load on dial-up.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-water-heater-temperature.html#intelli

3) Open following link for AO Smith manuals and service handbooks.
Shows same intellivent service manual, and shows manuals for power vent, but does not specifically list the GPS75 series
http://www.hotwater.com/resources/product-literature/service-handbooks/

4) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have a 2004 Suziki GSXR 1000 and I am having trouble getting the taillight with intergrated turn signals to work. It will turn on but when I hit the brake it will turn off and the turn signals don't...


Make sure the wireing is all connected properly, i do know that some of these units only use 1 earth wire for the whole light, where as you would have 5 wires for the earths originaly, 2 x indicators, 1 x stop and tail light, 1x number plate light, it may be that you have wired an earth into a live circuit on the new lamp, the coloure code does not always mach that of your bike, so you will have 2lives for the rear indicators, identify these by putting the wires directly to your battery one at a time, connect the indicators using the indicator live wires only to the new unit, the stop light using the live wire only, and the rear light using the original earth and rear light live
