SOURCE: Generator won't start. Seems to

have you had the generator stored with fuel in the carburettor since its last use if so the fuel goes bad and blocks up the main jet, remove the float bowl and clean out all the residue you can clean out the main jet with a suitable piece of wire

There are a few more components to check in the system. From the information provided this is not a Kohler generator as Kohler makes all their own AC alternators under 350KW, seems you may have just a Kohler engine (probably a CH25). Cannot find any info on the voltage regulator which leads me to believe it may be integrated into the main controller. Curious to know who the manufacturer is. If the capacitors are good, try checking the diodes. A volt/ohm meter with a diode check will do. Voltage reading on one side and nothing on the other. If you have no access to a diode check feature, try reading it through a battery NOT SHORTED TO BATTERY hook a meter to a battery and put the diode between one of the leads to the positive, one way will read voltage the other will read open, no voltage, or OL. Look for any fuses or breakers blown / tripped. 6 VAC on the output is about residual voltage meaning voltage the alternator makes without any help from a voltage regulator or field voltage. This usually means the alternator / rotor windings are still good. This alternator is brushless so you could seperately excite this unit via a 12V battery through your field. Look for your exciter field winding, it should have some kind of label on it saying F+ and F-, apply 12V here momentarily on + & - respectively with the unit running and you should see your output voltage spike. This tests the alternator. If this tests ok, then check to make sure your wiring / fuses from the alternator to the controller or voltage regulator (voltage sensing leads) are ok. If all these check ok, it is likely you have a bad voltage regulator.

SOURCE: I have an overload alarm on my honda eu2000i

it may be a thermal coupler that cuts out when it gets to hot i would let it cool off for a bit then try it with a lighter load and go from there

It's either not getting enough fuel, or the govenor is not working. When the engine is running, watch the throttle linkage between the carburetor and engine, looks like a bent wire. When you throw a load on it, it should move to give the engine more power, if it dont, try moving it by hand.
If that appears to be working ok, check the fuel line from the tank to the carb for good gas flow.
You can also remove the float bowl on the bottom of the carb, it's a round bowl on the bottom of the carb with a bolt in the middle of it...clean it out and check the float. The float looks like a little catamaran, make sure it is moving freely up and down. That is about all you can do without removing and cleaning the jets in the carb.

Good luck, & i hope this helps.

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Brand new genpower 8kva generator wont start


Thankyou Keithdandy. It seems you know what you're talking about and even read the bit about it being a DIESEL (no plugs or carb). It's dark and we're tired now but we will certainly look at the valves first thing in the morning. (the mist bit gave it away!!) thanks again.

you need to take the carburator off and clean it as well as the fuel tank,to start,maybe even a spark plug as well.always use a gas stable additive when you store it,better yet try to get in the habbit of running it once a month
