SOURCE: Generac portable generator doesn't produce power

Remove front cover on the genset and you will see the brushes and rings. Clean the rings if black with emory cloth and inspect brushes. Flash the fields by apply a 12V battery to the brushes. the brush closest to you or the bearing is connected to the positive side of battery and the back brush is negative. You have to do this with genset running. You should notice your voltage climb up to over 50Vac maybe even over 100Vac. Make sure to use rubber gloves when flashing fields and keep hands away from rotating parts. if voltage does increase when flashing the the voltage regulator is shot. If voltage does not climb then you will need a new genset or generator end.

SOURCE: Homelite portable generator, LRIE4400...no out put

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.

SOURCE: just up graded from a homelite 4400 to a craftsman

Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't. Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.
Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.
By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total resistive output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.
For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.
You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

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

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

    Onan 7000 generator runs but does not produce electric to rv


    First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

    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.

    Owners manual link: (Click on get manual)
    http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/homelite/hg6000_1.html

    Or try this direct link:
    http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/support/homelite/portable-generator/request-manual-299128

    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.

    Need to know color code for 220VAC receptacle, so can wire up an output cord. Had no cord with the generator. Have LRE 5500 portable generator. Have new 4 prong plug.


    Hello Arthur,

    For 220vac, you will have 2 blacks or Red and Black (line). The white is neutral, green / bare is your ground.

    If you look closely at the plug, the contacts for the line will have either black screws, or be labeled as L1 and L2. Neutral will have a white or silver screw, may be labeled as N, and the ground will be green or silver, labeled as Ground, Gnd, E, or Earth.
