Question about Honda 6370C - Parallel Power Kit For EU3000i
Reddy 10000 watt generator with 20 hp Honda motor. With auto idle off it will run at genarator full rpm. Turn on auto idle and it starts to reve up and down. Have not been able to fine any service manuals or info on a readdy generator. It is a 2000 year modle
This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

Off load, if you leave it on auto idle for 20 mins to let it warm up, does it still do it then?
