Yamaha 2400IS Generator goes to overload when ie: 240 volt plugged in, or 700 watt angle grinder plugged in.


No idea but somebody else will probably come along with a better idea then mine, seems a lot of these generators have this thing installed on them (Has $25 hard start kit). Not sure what it does or how it works. Strangely enough you said you use it for 240 volt. Looked at the picture and didn't see a 240 volt connection.
If you are using the what look like the 120 volt circuits you can't over load the unit. Maximum current draw will cause it to go into protection mode and shut down the power load. The following is an exert from the owners manual which I got from Yamaha's site. Link at the end of this post.

Hope this helps

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light
1
comes on when an over-
load of a connected electrical device is detected, the
inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage
rises. The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping
power generation in order to protect the generator and
any connected electric devices. The AC pilot light
(green) will go off and the overload indicator light (red)
will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are found,
remove.
4. After checking, restart the engine.

No electric output, how do I diagnose, capacitor, proper winding check etc.


Have you tried flashing your generator? Sometimes the magnets in the generator loose their polarity. Google and YouTube "flashing a generator"
HFLASHING the GEN

Sometimes the magnets lose their polarity. This worked on my brothers $1200 gen. Its worth a try. Good luck!
Check all wires/connections first, Then try this-
(Remove spark plug wire first!)
To flash the field on a small home use generator, get an ext. cord & cut off the female end of it & strip the wires & connect the wires to a 12 volt car or lawn tractor battery, & plug the male end of the cord, into the 120 A.C. side of the generator.

Make SURE that the black wire which is POS/HOT on an A.C. cord, gets connected to the RED/POS. side of the auto battery, & the white wire on A.C. cord gets connected to the BLK./NEG. side of the battery. If the ext. cord wires are not black & white, then the smaller prong of the plug is the POS./HOT

Plug the other end of the ext. cord into the generators 120 volt side (**remove spark plug wire**) & pull the starter cord 4-5 times, then remove the ext. cord, reconnect the spark plug wire, start the unit & plug something of 120 A.C. volts in to see if it works. Then let it run for about a half hour with 2 - 150 watt lights to help re-generate the unit.

When the car is running, I turn on defroster, the car dies. What causes the car to suddenly dies?


Is this the read window defroster or the windshield defroster? By die do you mean the engine stops running? I suspect a bad electrical ground with the ignition system I so.

Olympian generator g15u35 wont stay running. Shows fail to start fault.


Check the oil level, and oil level sensor. These are common issues with generators such as this.

Keeps stopping


which type of generator had an Olympian GP18 which would start and stop immediately, we were suspecting that the emergency switch had been pressed and left on but it so happened that the starter relay was the one loose.

Most of those chargers have a fuse in line between the battery and the charger which you should check. They are two stage chargers meaning when there is a large voltage drop, they go to a high rate charge until battery voltage reads about 14.3 - 14.6 VDC then drops to a float volatge and normal float voltage should be about 13.33 VDC. When they go to a high rate the light turns red, when they go to float the light turns green. When the fuse blows the light stays green because it doesn't see any voltage but the charger isn't doing any work.

I have a f350 crew cab 1997 5.8 and while drivin and after take off the truck loses power and shakes then stops seems like only when accelerating this happens.


Hello! There are two sensors that will cause this problem both can be tested...If you have a volt meter...If not, let me know...
#1 is the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS)...A black round device that is bolted to the throttle body with a three wire connector...Wire colors are...Gray/White...Brown/White...And Gray/Red...Using two safety pins plug them into the rear of the in place connector on the Gray/White...And Brown/White...Place + probe of meter set to read 5 volts on the Gray/White...And - probe on Brown/White...Start engine...At idle must read less than 1 volt (.85)...As you slowly increase throttle meter must rise smoothly to 4 volts at open throttle...If voltage jumps or acts erratic the sensor is defective...

#2 is the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor...Also mounted to throttle body...Three wire connector with the following wire colors...Light Green/Blue...Gray/Red...And Brown/White...Using the same technique...Pin the rear of the connector on the Light Green/Blue...And the Brown/White...Place + probe on Light Green/Blue and - probe on Brown/White...Turn key to on (don't start)...Record reading...Move Light Green/Blue probe with safety pin and push it into the Gray/Red wire...Record reading....Also check the vacuum line which is connected to the Map Send results...

Cost...TPS=$55............MAP=$95

to check if the charging system is charging you also need an amp meter hook that inbetween the battery lead on the pos + side of the battery and with the engine running turn on all lights if the amp meter reads - charge its not charging the batery up,,change the reg first,, thats the chepest part,,,the charge will only just be above what you need with all lights on eg 1.5 - 2 amps

I can't find the charging manual and I am intuiting from the drawings that if it has a steady flashing red it means it's charging, but I would like to read the instructions.


Operator's manual for DW926K-2 is here. It doesn't specifically address solid red light, but that's what mine does when I first put it on, so solid red indicates that it is charging.

If it is flashing the red light with two fast blinks followed by a
pause. This means the power source has out of spec for the charger (such as a generator not producing electricity at 60Hz).

If the red light flashes long, then short, you're in Hot/Cold Pack Delay mode which means it won't charge the battery until its temperature has stabilized.

I hope this helps! If so, please vote. Thanks.
