Question about Portable Generator

Will a portable generator with the following specs be able to power a surge protector with 700W running on it? I'd assume it would, but I've seen some reviews about the amps being low.

  • 2,000W peak / 1,500W continuous output
  • 4-stroke / 80cc EPA approved engine
  • Synchronized single phase brushless motor
  • Durable tubular steel frame with sock absorbing feet to absorb vibration
  • Up to 9 Hrs Run Time on 1 Tank of Gas at 50% Load
  • DC Output: 12V at 10Amp - Perfect for charging your Car, RV, Jetski or Boat battery

    Why won't my stanley 8000 generator put out power?


    You have to be missing a switch to turn on the power outlets once it is running. That or a breaker needs to be turned on.

    What faults can a change over switch caurse between the generator and the load


    One consideration is how many circuits and how much total wattage is being used when the generator is in service.
    "Gas Powered Generator GG2300 2300 Watts Surge 2000 Watts Continuous Output 10 Hours of Run Time at Full ."
    This is a relatively small generator with 2000 watts output, so the problem may be that the generator can not handle the wattage demand. You can get a pretty good estimate of the wattage demand by adding up the wattage of everything , all lights, appliances, etc that's being powered by the generator. If the total wattage is greater than the output of the generator (2000 watts) then the generator is too small.

    Have an fg5700ak runs ok but no power output what


    Typical diodes are 10 amp for these. The stator and rotor both have VERY low resistance readings. The reading typically will be below that which will register MEANINGFULLY on the digital meters.

    My generator had 10 amp diodes with surge protectors across them. One of the protectors shorted and generator output was zero. Mine is a 6KW diesel silent unit.

    Replaced the diodes with 70 amp ones with surge protectors that have 20 times the energy absorbtion as the originals. Unfortunately this required some lathe work to make holders for the diodes and the surge protectors to ride on the rotor.

    Used the light bulb trick to remagnitize it once diodes were replaced.

    The carburetor is probably clogged up. Mix a bottle of carburetor cleaner with the gas to see if that would help. Also check/replace the fuel filter.
