Is it a 3000 watt generator? Is it a generator running a 3000 watt appliance? Be more specific. What generator? What is it running?

First, make sure you fuel is fresh. Clean the carburetor thoroughly, that means take it off the generator, take it apart and clean all the little orifices, channels and jets of all the gunk a carb gets in it from sitting, bad gas and just because it is there. Reassemble and test it on the generator with fresh fuel.

Yamaha 3000ise. 23.3 breaker cutting out on RV AC. After 4 tries it seems to get weaker. Is their a curcuit breaker on the 23.3 amp side that could be getting weak and what do i have to replace?


Make sure the power draw on the AC doesn't exceed 3000 watts. 2300 running, 3000 surge watts. You may have an AC problem developing. The circuit breaker on the generator seems weaker when you reset it because of internal heat. Let the breaker cool a while before resetting.

Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator


no
ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

My Oman generator overheats and shuts down if I plug my battery charger in and have my air conditioning on and or coffee maker


to start with with an air conditioner running (2000 +watts ) plus a coffee machine (1500 watts ) you are looking at 3500 + watts of power used from the generator
the genset has to be of a minimum of 4500 watts to run full time with out over heating
never mind what the rating says on the side, that rating is surge rated and the duty cycle is around 500 watts less than that figure
So if your gen set is 3500 watts the power is at surge power and that will overheat the genset
Of course you haven't mentioned the rating of the set , but overloading is the main reason for over heating

Power Mate 1,850 watt. What is the run time?


what is meant by the run time
an 1850 watt unit will run indefinitely if the out put is around 1750 watts but probably 5 minutes at 1850 watts as that is the max wattage for surge start ups ( electric motors switching on as in fridge compressors, drills, compressors)
if you are running it at around 900 watts constant then a tank(20 ltrs) of fuel will probably last 8 hours

AC surge current?


you are missing the voltage supply here to get an definitive answer
for 240 volts drawing 4.8 amps the required wattage is 1152
for 120 volts the wattage is 576 watts
for 120 volts with a current of 900 watts , it equates to 7.5 amps
with 240 volts with a current of 1150 watts , it equates to 4.79 amps
so you can see the problem by not stating the supply voltage
get access to an cable clamp amp meter / watt meter from an electrician and read the current on starting the ac unit
if it exceeds 900 watts for 120 volts or 1150 for 240 volts , consider a bigger generator

Coleman generator OHV3000


The carburetor is probably clogged up. Mix a bottle of carburetor cleaner with the gas to see if that would help. Also check/replace the fuel filter.
