HI Jim, When you're buying you portable generator tell the store person you're buying the generator for your mig and give that person your specifics..... P.S. Listen and ask.... AND take a day or two if you're not sure..... CHECK OUT EBAY as well as you can barter price mate, I hope this helped..............CHEERS..
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.
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.
