There should be a breaker reset button. It should be by the plugs on the generator.
What kind of generator is this?

Husky 5000 watt generator quit producing power.


You could have a bad circuit breaker button. Replace that and see what happens.

Sparking in power box when we use the generator and trips the braker


When you say "power box" do you mean the main breaker box in your house? Is the generator hooked up to the breaker that you say trips when the generator is on? There is a short somewhere. First check the generator. Is it running OK. In other words if you plug something into the generator receptacle directly, does it work? If the generator itself works properly, then check the wiring from the generator to the circuit breaker. DO NOT use the generator until the problem solved = safety first.

Porter Cable BSI550 W 5,500 Watt Generator With 10 Hp Engine No AC output


Sounds like the generator unit (sometimes called the generator head) has overheated and melted the insulation in the windings. This is the same as an electric motor "burning out", and if this is the case, then the generator is toast. If you happened to notice that the lights or fans were getting dim or slowing down before the breaker tripped (without the gas engine slowing down) then this is most likely the case and you generator is toast. But if the output just suddenly quit, then it is possible that some smaller electrical component has failed. In any case, it's not something external that you can easily reset or replace. Sorry for the bad news.

NO 20amp 120v power


you probably tripped a circuit breaker. Carefully push in all the circuit breakers, I bet that one of them will give slightly and power will be restored.

Sometimes the 20amp outlet is also a GFI outlet. You may need to reset the outlet itself if so equipped.

Breaker tripped, wouldn't reset. After about 20 minutes it reset.


YES YOU ARE IN DANGER. DO NOT turn this breaker on again. Please get a registered electrician. There is a risk of fire or even explosion. BE CAREFUL. Have you got a smoke alarm?

My electric went out for 24 hours. I hooked up my generator to the breaker box to power the house. The generator only powers one 110 leg so there would have been 110 going to oneside of the 220 breaker to...


You should start with checking all your breakers to be sure the breaker did not pop just half of your breaker. This is something you should do with all your breakers. When you do this you should shut down all your 220v breakers so you don't get bleed back through the system. Other than that you need to look for resets on the tub. The heater is a good place to start and don't forget the gfci's on the tub or in the bath or laundry room.

Coleman Powermate 5000 reset problem


Yes, there must be a protection device on the unit somewhere. It should be indicated in the owners manual. It may be on the box the outlets are in, or built into the cover of the generation unit.
