the generator is not big enough to run what you want
it needs to be 3500w minimum or 4.5w to be safe
although it is stated at 2500 watts , in fact that is the peak load on electric motor start up and its continuous rating will be around 1.8 watts
all of this is clearly stated on the specs plate on the generator

How many watts does it need to run the airconditioner.Is a honda 3000 good enough

You can check the AC unit, it will tell you how much electricity it needs. Likely 15 or 20 amps. That's about 1500 or 2000 watts. What does your generator supply?

Hi , I have a 2500 watts honda generator , it's starts & sounds alright but when you plug a power tool and once you press the trigger of tool it shuts off right away ... What could be the problem ?

Wow, you must have one mighty bit power tool there. The Honda genny should accept it easily. You don't mention the current draw of that power tool - it should be under approx. 2200W to allow for start-up load. The other possibility is an excessively long power cord or even a short-circuit in the tool ...... or a problem with the genny itself! Try plugging in your wife's hair dryer to check it. Failing that you should get an electrician to check it all out.
Good luck.

I have a 1996 lance camper with a 2500 onan generater lp cant get the spark plug out can you help

Spray the plug base with a good penetrant and give it time to seep into the threads and work.
Failing that you can sometimes carefully heat the head around the plug with a small hand torch and get the head to expand enough to enable you to break the spark plug loose.

I need to know what gauge wires black and red for battery to generator

This is what I assume is for the starter motor for the generator. I would use for this a #8 welding wire style cable. This will supply enough power for starting.

My honda gx160 generator keeps cutting out after 2 mins

Sounds like fuel flow is restricted.
Is the vent cap on the gas tank clear?
Pull the fuel hose off at the carb and let run into a container from the fuel flow good while filling a cup or two worth of fuel?
If not check filter at fuel switch or at hose connection at tank for restriction.
It takes about 2 minutes to use up fuel in the carb with engine running.
Sure sounds like a fuel problem.

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
