My LCDTV/DVDCOMBO , MODEL NO /3255HD ,Had a power surge from a 5.5 Kva generator , is there any internal surge protection if so were , if not which curcit board would be damaged .?


most likely the power circuits as there is no internal surge protection
have the set properly diagnosed and go from there
always use a power board with surge protection for all electronic equipment
as the voltage from a genset is reasonably well controlled , even at over rpms the voltage would not go high enough to cause damage for example a 240 volts running at correct rpms will only get to 255 volts uncontrolled rpms as the governor lever is fully open
however a lower voltage (200 volts ) increases amp flow and that is probably what did the damage

I have a gen4000Lp generator i have no power to the plugs i reset the surges on it and still no power


Suggestion.

If there is no circuit protection breaker ( resettable fuse) be used to find, a voltage regulator modul can be damaged by overload or by faultering bad slide contacts on the statorgroup.
regularly there to detect poor quality cable shoes on the foreign brands

7500 champion generator used breakers were tripped they wouldnt reset but ran great good voltage for about 3 weeks now it still runs great but the voltage meter bounces on 0 wont power nothing


If it has sat, it may have lost it's rotor residual magnetism.
Disconnect the rotor field wires at the AVR or on the exciter/brushes. Note they are polaroty sensitive. Connect a 12V battery to F+ and F- (note polarity) and momentarilly power from the battery for a few seconds. DO NOT forget to disconnect the rotor/exciter field wires first or the voltage regulator will be damaged.

If it hasn't sat check voltage regulator, rotor resistance, and stator resistance, and for shorts to ground.

Electronic components are very sensitive to voltage surges, spikes or sags.

Voltage is not delivered at a constant 120 volts. With alternating current, the voltage rises and falls in a predetermined rhythm. The voltage oscillates from 0 to a peak voltage of 169 volts. Most appliances and electronics used in the United States are designed to be powered by this form of generated electricity.
During a power surge, the voltage exceeds the peak voltage of 169 volts.

A spike in voltage can be harmful to appliances and electrical devices in your home. An increase in voltage above an appliance's normal operating voltage can cause an arc of electrical current within the appliance. The heat generated in the arc causes damage to the electronic circuit boards and other electrical components.

(Smaller, repeated power surges may slowly damage your electronic equipment, over time too.)

Voltage sags, a.k.a voltage dips or brownouts, is another form of electrical disturbance that can damage appliances as well.

The bottom line, power surges, spikes, and sags can vary in duration and magnitude; and can damage electrical equipment ranging from stereos to computers to any household appliance that uses chip board circuitry sensitive enough to "blow" due to over or under-energizing it.

Dometic model 610015


the boards will be available as spares from the makers spare pare parts section. you will need model and possible serial numbers. It is impossible to get too much power from the generator but it is possible to get the wrong voltage for your units. IT is also possible to get power surges from the generator as different loads are applied and the best way to avoid this is to use an ups of sufficient current draw for each unit or a invertor generator.

I have an 8.5 onan diesel generator that idles fine but surges badly when the air conditioner is started - the motor races out of control - what could be wrong?


Is it only when a load is on the unit? I am assuming the voltage output os correct and the HVAC is working properly on shore power and does not have a locked compressor. If it does there is too much demand on the generator and it cannot govern, if the HVAC and ouplut voltages are all good, make sure you have the right weight oil and level in. It sounds like a governor issue, or the engine is mechanically not provifing enough HP. More than likely a governor issue

Honda eu3000is generator surges


Inverter Generator Benefits
  • The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.

EU3000i Handi Specifications
  • The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.

The generator kicked the breaker of and was smoking and smelled like electrical


What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.


I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.



Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator cold...in its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.



Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

Computer will not turn on. Possible power surge.


If the power supply is good then your motherboard must have gone bad during a surge.
