    You should check for spark next as that's easy to do. It sounds a little like you've lost a valve lifter or gotten something amiss in the valve train. This is an OHV engine right?

Hi























































































Hi See if the gas tank cap vent is clogged,remove the cap and check the gasket in it.Check the flyweel key(not to be sheared) and the condenser( not to be defective).The ignition points(not to be burned).Check the oil in the crankcase(pay attention to the low-oil-level shutoff sistem (if there is one).Check the fuel lines and filter.Check the muffler(not to be clogged).Check the plug wires and make sure is securely attached at the sparkplug.Check the cable and linkage.
best regards savumihai71

Can it run for 7 days without stopping?


Joe,

If you ran your generator for 7 days, it would be running for 168 hours. You MUST stop the engine every 50 hours and replace the oil. Otherwise, you will trash the engine.

Vertex 7500 not generate energy


Have you let it set for a long period? I have heard that if you do not use a generator that it will simply stop working(generator portion itself). Make sure no breakers are tripped and the wiring looks OK.

Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run


Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Makita Generator no power


Hi Laurence,
Hope you had as good a holiday as I did :-)
Yes the squareish thing in there is a kind of voltage regulator. More correctly, your brushless generator is using this capacitor to regulate output voltage by means of a resonant circuit between a winding on the stator and this part. The short answer is that you more than likely need a new one and because of its particular shape the only realistic source of the new one is Makita.

I disagree with the service tech about the testability of the thing, my Fluke 112 DMM has a capacitance function that would let me tell if your capacitor was shorted ( 0 mfd reading), open (infinate mfd reading), or some value that could be compared to whatever "known" one was applicable. In this case I'd take a loose guess that the reading of a good one is something like 20 - 100 mfd, but that's just a guess.

let me know if the new capacitor doesn't get it,
Carl
