try a spray lubricant into the motor mechanism and grease any visable wire cables that run from/to motor ,not the electrical cables the bare wire winder cables,also grease/ lubricate any accessable pivot/hinge points , gently pull the cord and gently push the roof back and forth occasionally trying motor with a bit of patience this should get the roof moving , also look for anything that may be snagging the roof/mechanism as there is a pressure protection system to stop the roof being fully closed on say someones hand so preventing injury
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
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.
I have one.. great little unit.. very reliable.. I am a wannabee diy guy.. so good luck 1 assuming sparkplug is good / in / /newish?? Fuel needs to be filled.. I suggest premium only (less residue if it sits for long.) fill oil.. top up.. d/c electric plugs then togle ignition switch to on turn fuel cap to on turn fuel switch (sw) to on move choke to start if engine is cold start. pull starter cord .. good luck ps.. I have learned to run engine dry of fuel after use. turn off fuel (sw).. this empties carb.. You may have to pull starter cord a few times with next start to bring the fuel down..
those catches are what rotate the crank when you pull the cord, the spring's are to bring them back to their original position. while you have it apart gently tug on the pullcord to see if they try to move, if so then your problem lies deeper in the engine.
This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.
