Hello, you might try this really simple solution called flashing the field. If it sat that long, the residual magnetism that is in the field coil might have completely dissipated therefore producing no electricity. Here is the link on how to do it.http://www.perr.com/tip16.html
If this solution has helped you, would you please give my solution a positive rating. Thank you, Michael Burke

You will need to install new diodes,they are located in the plastic housing behind the receptacles...It looks like little spark plugs..They work to put dc voltage to the rotor,without the exciter voltage applied,you will not get ac power out..The part number is 3483.01....You can buy these online for about $6 each,they have 2 inside the generator,and you should change both.

What size generator do I need to run a 10 hp motor


on the plate attached to the motor you will find several important items
one is the wattage of the motor
this is the maximum wattage that the motor uses when under load
the gen set will need to be at least 30% bigger than that figure
next there will the number of phases that the motor is
it will read as 1 ph or 3ph
If it is 1ph that is a single phase motor and will ru from a single phase gen set
however if it is 3ph you will need a 3ph gen set to run the motor
As most single phase motors are limited to around 5hp I would be very sure that the motor is not 3ph
specialist advice from an accredited electrician or electrical motor shop is recommended before buying a gen set. as if you need 3ph the gen sets become expensive.

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

I have a 10 hs tecumseh motor on a riding mower i need an explode view of carb and linkage when start-up engine it goes wide open


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I understand you have a 10 HP Tecumseh engine. There are service manuals available on line for your engine but without your engine model number it is difficult to pass you the correct one: Here is the link for the service manuals:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals

Somewhere in the list is your manual.
This is my best guess without your engine model number:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals/TECUMSEH_SERVICE%20_REPAIR_MANUAL_OHH50-65_OHHSK50-130_OHV11-OHV17_OVM120_OVRM40-675_OVRM120_OVXLC120_OVXL120_OVXL125_695244A.pdf

^-Make sure you read about Adjustments in section 1 also.

Running wide open causes:
1. Broken throttle control plate spring
2. Governor spring problem
3. Internal Governor flyweight has departed the governor gear.
4. Throttle plate (butterfly) attached to the throttle shaft in the carb throat has come off the throttle shaft.
5. Broken / missing linkage
6. Someone loosened the governor shaft bolt at the base of the governor arm and allowed the governor to get out of adjstment.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My gen starts and runs for 1 min or so then dies restarts then dies again and again. if i start it under load ( turn on air con) it will run for 10 min then die allen


Is there a fault?? All UL listed generators including Kohler are required to lockout on a fault on shut down. This really sounds like a problem with your 2-wire auto start connection between your automatic transfer switch and genset. RDT model automatic transfer switch it is the 2 middle wires on the green connector and terminals 3&4 in the generator. close to run and open to shut down. Any open at any time will cause the unit to shut down. The 12 will shut down instantly upon an open because your 5 minute cool down is built into the transfer switch.

Parts lists for Coleman generators are here: http://www.jackssmallengines.com/coleman_parts_lookup.cfm

More detailed information about the engine can be found by using the engine model number. Look around the fan shroud or engine block. Coleman used different engnes, however your gen may have incorporated a Tecumseh 10 hp engine. Good luck

Is there any way to quiet down my Tecumseh Craft. Gen?


longer exhaust pipe from motor and better muffler. Go with a larger pipe too to allow for better engine performance. You can get a tractor muffler from Tractor Supply that meets your needs.

Coleman Powermate 10 HP Generator shuts down after a few minutes.


I have an HM100 on a 5500 watt gen with the same problem. This motor calls for a J17 spark plug, but I found using a J19 (hotter) plug solved the problem. I think the J17 doesn't get hot enough for a complete combustion burn so it act like fuel starvation thus resulting in the black sooty and wet plug.
