SOURCE: I have a Coleman Vantage 3500 motor runs no generator output

This sound like a loss of residual magnetism in the generator. The field will need to be "flashed".This is also known as re-exciting the field of the generator.
The Coleman manual gives these steps:
1Use a 6 Volt lantern batters (dry cell) or a 12 Volt automotive battery.
2.Disconnect all loads from generator.
3. Remove the brush cover (that's the rectangular plastic cover on the end of the generator.)
4. Plug a lamp or light into the generator before starting the engine. The light will illuminlate when ?Voltage has returned.
5. Start the engine with no load connected to the generator.
6. Attach the "-" lead of the battery to the negative brush. Very briefly touch the "+" lead of the battery to the positive brush. Remove as soon as Voltage builds up.

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.

SOURCE: Engine over heats on Lister Petter AD1 generator

If it's over revving then more than likely the problem is in the governor. The governor is under the fuel pump and thats what regulates the engine speed.

Lpw 46 lister petter generater. runs at 1500rpm but under load drops to 1350rpm


Sounds like its overloaded, really need to know how many KW's kilowatts is the gen set, and also what you are powering, but sounds like a short in wire or just plain overloaded.

Coleman Powermate 5000W has HIGH RPMs until a 3KW load


This generator is less than ideal to use as a home unit. see www.advanced-power-technologies.com and look at residential videos. Basically the voltage is governed by a capacitor on your unit, and ouput is directly propertional to speed. Also the engine is mechanically governered versus an electronic system. This is a common mistake using portables to power home equipment. You will damage your home digital equipment, do not use recommended

Porter Cable BSI550 W 5,500 Watt Generator With 10 Hp Engine No AC output


Sounds like the generator unit (sometimes called the generator head) has overheated and melted the insulation in the windings. This is the same as an electric motor "burning out", and if this is the case, then the generator is toast. If you happened to notice that the lights or fans were getting dim or slowing down before the breaker tripped (without the gas engine slowing down) then this is most likely the case and you generator is toast. But if the output just suddenly quit, then it is possible that some smaller electrical component has failed. In any case, it's not something external that you can easily reset or replace. Sorry for the bad news.

Torque settingsfor head on lister petter mini6 engine


I have just rebuilt one for our Westerly 21. This is from my Petter 'A' range workshop manual:-
The water cooled engines (AC1W etc.) are:cylinder head nuts: 30NM (22 lbft) except 32.5NM (24 lbft) for the one that also holds the rocker.
Valve clearances are 0.1mm (0.004") COLDReset valve clearance after one hours running since torquing the head.
Retorque head and set valve clearance after initial 20 hours running
I believe Mini-6 refers to the water cooled engines but just in case, the air cooled engines are 27N (20 lbft)

1980 sportster not charging. battery is new and connections all seem good.. tested generator output at battery and it shows no increase at all while running.wondering if the problem is the regulator or the...


To find out which is bad, you have to check the maximum output of the generator. To do this, you'll need a good voltmeter and a jumper wire. First, remove both "A" and "F" terminal wires. One of the wires is a hot wire so don't let it short to the frame. Then set your meter's function switch to DC VOLTS with a range of 50 volts or greater. Connect the positive meter lead to the "A" terminal and the negative meter lead to an engine ground. Start the engine and run it at about 2000 RPM. MOMENTARILY connect a jumper lead from the engine ground to the "F" terminal. Your volt meter should read 25 to 30 volts. If not, polarize the generator but MOMENTARILY shorting the battery positive post with the "A" terminal and recheck the maximum output test. If you do not have at least 25 volts out of the generator, you need to service the generator. If you do have 25 or more volts from the generator, your regulator is probably bad.

good luck
Steve

Mitsubishi MGE 6700 generator. Starts and runs fine, but no longer putting out power. What would it cost to repair this issue?


These generators have a GFI outlet on them, and they do fail. I would suggest you check all output circuits and see if you have any output. If so, pull the GFI and see if it is getting power to the outlet. If so, replace the outlet.
