Makita Generator no power

Hi Carl,

I have a Makita G1300R that stopped producing AC. I've checked it at the output (behind the receptacle panel) and no power there. The Makita tech (on the phone) said it was probably the condenser. Is that the same as the voltage regulator? He also said that there was no easy way to test it as he didn't know the values. I'm just looking for another opinion before ordering one.

Thank you,

Laurence DuBois

Hi Laurence,
Hope you had as good a holiday as I did :-)
Yes the squareish thing in there is a kind of voltage regulator. More correctly, your brushless generator is using this capacitor to regulate output voltage by means of a resonant circuit between a winding on the stator and this part. The short answer is that you more than likely need a new one and because of its particular shape the only realistic source of the new one is Makita.

I disagree with the service tech about the testability of the thing, my Fluke 112 DMM has a capacitance function that would let me tell if your capacitor was shorted ( 0 mfd reading), open (infinate mfd reading), or some value that could be compared to whatever "known" one was applicable. In this case I'd take a loose guess that the reading of a good one is something like 20 - 100 mfd, but that's just a guess.

let me know if the new capacitor doesn't get it,
Carl

Hi Carl,

I also have a Makita G6100R generator and my problem is slightly different. The generator only puts out 115VAC unloaded (as opposed to the 120VAC nominal rating). When I put it under 1/2 load the voltage sinks to about 103VAC. Is this also a capacitor problem or is this possibly a stator weakening magnetically? Thanks for any insight you can pass along.

Pac makes continous sound


What is the sound? Is the device working normally? Are there any lights or indicators? Do they indicate a fault or error?

A UPS runs on standard 110-120 VAC power. It converts the input power to DC and charges internal batteries, then back to AC. Connected devices actually run on the conditioned 115-120 VAC output. The batteries serve as a short term backup power source.

The electronics in the UPS can produce hum or high pitched tones. The sound should not be annoying. If it is louder than connected equipment (computers) it may indicate a problem. Hum is usually 60 Hz harmonics and difficult to eliminate. This harmonic may be transferred to audio equipment such as speakers or radios. A high pitched tone can be related to the rectifiers for the convertor/invertor. If the tone is loud, it means the rectifiers are drawing a lot of current. This is usually related to bad batteries.

Measure the voltage on the output receptacles. It should be 115-120 VAC. Disconnect everything on the output receptacles. Unplug the UPS from it's power source. If the output power dies within 1 minute, the batteries need to be replaced.

Honda eu3000is generator surges


Inverter Generator Benefits
  • The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.

EU3000i Handi Specifications
  • The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.

Hi, I recently purchased a used makita 6100r generator and when checking it out I discovered on my 30 amp 220 receptacles arent getting full power. I took out the receptacle and checked the wires in back...


You may be asking too much of the unit; the 5800 watts a which it is spec'd, may be a 'peak' power rating which may be 15-20% higher than its continuous rating. 30 Amps at 220 volts implies 6600 watts which is higher than even the peak power rating. I would expect the unit to produce ~4800 watts continuous or around 22 Amps.
Decided to check my statements and found this, which I quote:
Generator Volts AC (60Hz) 120/240 Max. Output Current 5800W-48.3A/24.2A Rated Output Current 4800W-40A/20A Volts DC (AMPS) 12 (8.3)

Hi power supply whent pop. PC worked on battery for 20 mins. got new power supply but will not charge. Is there any voltage protection inside and how do I get inside My Eeee900


Hello,
It is very important to check the power output produced by the ac adapter. Make sure that the output voltage and ampere of the new power supply is the same with the original power supply provided with the laptop. The new power supply you purchased may be producing lower or higher ampere than the required power to turn on the unit and charge the battery.

I suggest to purchase ASUS Eee recommended power supply or ac adapter for your laptop before it gets damage by incorrect power voltage or ampere used.

Good luck!

I purchased a Coleman Powermate 5000 6 years ago: Ser: 94411583. Never really used it for any length of time. Kept for emergency. An electrician checked it for voltage output a short time ago. 240V...


Voltage is adjusted by raising or lowering the engine speed (governor adjustment), however one must also pay attention to the rpm because your generator was designed to produce 120 volts at 60 cycles while turning 3600 rpm. Your electrician should have tested for htz while testing for voltage. I would recommend re-testing under load and adjust governor to turn 60 cycles to see resulting voltage.

Battery loosing charge.


check your alternator/stator plate is putting current to the battery my guess is its goosed / multimeter across batery terminals should read 14.2 volts when engine is running if not its stator plate /check all terminals 1st with wd40 then chack again if it still persist then its ur stator burnt a coil

McCulloch Generator model FG6000mk 11hp run good until I turn on generator then stop running do you think the generator bad and can it be rebuild ?


I did not understand how you turn on generator, as it is always turned on.
If you use the ON/OFF switch it is stopping the prime mover.
If you reset the AC breaker without load, and it stops - it means that you have short circuit after the breaker. Check the output receptacles.

Xantrex Inverter/Charger has no AC output


HI

Checking AC Output
1. After the battery voltage and connections have been checked, disconnect the inverter.s AC output wires from
the power distribution system and connect a light to the AC output of the inverter/charger.
2. Disconnect the remote panel to eliminate it as a possible problem.
3. Turn the inverter ON using the power switch on the front panel of the inverter. The 100-watt light should
illuminate. Measure the voltage at the AC output wires using the multimeter. The reading should be 114.126
VAC or approximately 230 VAC if the unit is an international model. If the light does not illuminate, there is
a problem with the inverter. Contact Xantrex technical support.

I have a Honda 3000IS generator that only produces ~50 volts from the 30A receptacle--the other receptacles work fine, as does everything else on the machine. How do I get full voltage out of this...


I would guess that this uses both of the 15 amp breakers to make the 30 amp circuit. Try carefully measuring the voltage at the back of the 30 amp outlet after pulling it out. You may have a bad socket. look at how it's wired behind the panel too and see if there are wires from the other sockets to this one. If so, check all connections between them. If you still can't figure it out, try to get a picture of the panel and the wiring behind it and send it to Shelomah@i-can-fix-that.com
