SOURCE: 5500 generator stopped producing eletric after

First check with the dealer and see if it is still under warranty. If it is not, make sure nothing is blocking the air flow around where the control modules are located. This could cause the voltage regulator and other electronic parts to overheat. Next check the brushes and make sure they are free of any dust or build up preventing them from making contact.

If everything is OK the next thing I would do is change the voltage regulator.

I have the same unit and same problem.
I have lost my owners manual. Did you figure out what needs to be done to correct the no output issue.

SOURCE: i have a hg 6000 homelite generator, runs great

Hi and welcime to FixYa. I am Kelly

This is going to sound odd but.... this is how it it is recommended to field flash and inverter type generator. (Brushless) The steps are to (not kidding...) use a male mail interconnecting wire from your house wiring and plug in your generator and turn ON the main CB for 1 minute.

If this does not work.... See steps below amnual links.

Or try this direct link:

This is a brushless generator... Not sure what the smoke was but... the yellow wires are for the capacitor winding. If you probe the capacitor terminals with one of the wires disconnected with a meter on R x 10,000 you should see a brief jump in resistance and then the meter drifts to infinity.
reverse the test leads and test again looking for the same result.

Next read resistance Yellow wire to Yellow Wire (Stator capacitor loop check) It should read low resistance

Also read Brown wire to Brown wire. This is the DC stator loop check. Is should read resistance.

Main winding checks Red to Blue and White to Brown that goes to the main breaker. OR Turn the Main breaker on.. White to lower left pin of 30A 4 pin output recepticle. Bot red to blue and White to Brown MUST read low resistance

These are all the checks except the rectifier and the rotor. You will probably find something during the above tests. If not... respond here and I will pass on the rotor and diode tests.

SOURCE: why won't my homelite generator output current when running?

If the brushes are bad on the armature you will not get power

Homelite portable generator, LRIE4400...no out put fr unit..has been discontinued fr a few yrs..no parts available..known fr circuit board failure..my dad's , maby 50hr on unit..how can I bypass..or obtain...


If the engine is running but no output from the plugs....the VERY common problem is loss of magnetism in the generator after storage.
With the generator off.........
Look at the side of the generator part.....do you see a small + and - on any terminals?
You may have to take a cover off.
Take a 9 volt battery and momentarily put current from this small battery through these terminals.
Now.....start her up and check for power at the plugs.
This fixes 75% of "no output" after being "stored" generators.

Runs great but will not produce electricity


To flash the excitor circuit on a coleman ( the generator is built by generac) you need a 12 volt battery. You quickly apply 12 volts via your 120vac recepticals. NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO SECONDS! Then check you ac voltage. Most of the time the brushes are burnt up when voltage is low. Check the brushes first. You can access them by taking the end cap off of the generator via two to four screws. The brush holder is easy to spot, two wires leading to the front of the amature. Hope this solves your problem.

Generator stopped producing electricity


if the generator has been sitting for a while you might have to excite the magnets to start producing power. plug in a reversible drill and with the generator running turn the drill in the reverse direction by hand while holding the trigger in the forward position.
