No electrical output

Gen-pro by Gillette, GX270 Honda 9.0, 5000 watts.

Generator is built by "Gillette" out of Elkhart, Indiana. and is marked: Max VA 5000
watts 4500
amps 38/19
volts 120/240
hertz 60 hz
Class "H" insulated system
Under control cover is a large siver canister with 2 red wires going to generator and coming back up are 1 green, 1 red, 1 white and 2 black. I I measured 0 volts at plugs and breakers. I ran generator for 1/2 hour and did raise engine rpm just to see if it would come back on line, no change. Could you also send a rough electrical schematic if one is available.

Power loss


950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

Powerhorse 4000 generator only has 110v output


to get that voltage , it would have to be revving very high
volts on a gen set are set by engine rpms
start it again ad keep manual control of the governor lever and adjust the speed screw ( controls the spring tension to the gov lever) to the 240 v output
a straight ac gen set is a pure sine wave --it is the inverter sets that have a squared of sine wave

Fg2000tc tried a 1000 watt jack hammer but overload alarm came on what to do


Your gen. is a 2000 wt max 1000wt running out put. Means it will start your jackhammer but will not maintain the wattage to run it long. You are using the max it has to put out. So let me try to explain - 2000 watt max output works like this - We will use a fan as an example. A fan sitting still and not turning takes more amperage/watts to start. that is called lock rotor amps. So lets say the fan is a 1000w to run. 2000w start the fan turning then it takes 1000w to keep it turning. Your gen. can start the fan but not keep it running it is using all it has to put out, now if that fan only uses say 750 w running watts you have some head room to keep it running with out things getting hot. Hope this is clear as mud.

You MAY have blown the rotating diodes on the rotor.

This would require servicing.

The generator output hooks to the transfer switch. It senses the power from gen or land power and switches accordingly to allow power into the breaker panel.

Honda generator em 1800


Honda generators are very reliable and are easy to adjust. The best way to check for proper output is to use a meter that can check cycles and voltage. Set meter to htz or freq and adjust the engine governor to 60 cycles. When the engine is turning 3600 rpm it is at max power and the generator may be producing ac voltage ranging from 115 to 125 at 60 cycles. When you draw power from the generator the engine governor will try to overcome the stress and maintain 3600 rpm. The engine must be well maintained to produce full power. Service oil, filter, plug and valve adjustment. Some engines have a spark arrester installed in the muffler that may become blocked with carbon. If engine is producing full power and voltage/amps is low then check brushes, capacitors, and/ or voltage regulator. Most problems occur when too much power is requested from rated generator. Example, trying to connect an 1800 watt air compressor to generator. The compressor may draw double the stated wattage upon starting and cycling. For longest generator life, It is best to use only 75% of rated output. On an 1800 watt generator use max wattage 1350. If you actually need to use 1800 watts then the best generator would be a 2500 watt. enjoy
