We have an engel eclipse. We had it hooked up to 12volt and the generator and now it won't work on 12 volt. Any ideas?

While the below is not an eclipse, it is suggestive.

The only requirement needed for running your "E" or "F" series Engel Fridge - Freezer (The later Models) on a 240 volt generator is to ensure the generator you are using is A.V.R. Automatic Voltage Regulated. Please refer to your generators user manual. If it is an older generator with A.V.R., it doesn't hurt to add an in line spike protector or surge arrestor.

I have a 6000 watt allpower generator that the 12 volt breaker poped out reset it still no power replaced the avr ran for about 5 seconds then poped the 12 volt breaker again what could it be


The 12v system does not go through the AVR. It most likely is the Battery Charging Rectifier has failed. This controls the voltage from the 12v feed from the alternator and charges the battery.

1) Follow the wiring from the 12v socket/connectors until you come to a Block rectifier. It will be held on by a bolt in the center and have 4 wires connected to it. If you look at the pins you will see one is seated at a different angle to the others. Test the feed to this pin, you should get a result of between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.
If you are not getting these results then the Block rectifier has blown and will need replacing.

2) If all is testing fine above, then you will need to test the Battery Charging Rectifier as you have an Electric Start and Battery on your unit. This is a metal block located on the back of the engine, next to the starter motor and it has fins running across it. ( to see an example of this part look up your generator on this page Again this should be giving you between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

3) Next,check the voltage going into the Battery Charging Rectifier from the alternator. You should get between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

For replacement parts please see our web page. You will need the full model number to do this.:

It may well be the AVR, how can I test this? Thank you so much.

Disconnect the avr and unplug the wires going to the brushes then put 12 volts to the brushes and see if the generator puts out 120 volts.

Wiring diagram for installing a tv on a boat

Depends on whether this is a 12 Volt TV or a 120Volt. If a 12 volt, then fused and direct to battery. This is done this way as you do not want any other circuit to feed through it. You may want to add a diode to insure that if this is a unit with its own batteries, there is no reverse draw.
If a 120Volt, you need a power inverter which is also isolated from other systems. For shore power 120Volt, there should be a circuit panel and it may have open taps.

I have a honda ex1000 generator. The owners manual gives specs of 120vac at 3600rpm. Also 12 volt dc to charge a battery. It starts and runs great but measures 240 vac at both receptacles. There is no...

if it is in fact made for the country's you stated then that's common do to they don't use 110 but unlikely do to there sales are international in reading the manual the rating is
120volt 60 Hz rated 900va max 1000va
the 12volt section 12volts 8.3 amp current
i am attaching 3 pix's of the wiring diag so you can trace the wires hope this helpsb34e74f.jpgb589d04.jpg1eb189d.jpg

My generator is only putting out 2.5 volts it is a powermate 5000 what is the most likely cause

Most likely the excitation DC circuit is broken or exciting rectifier (AVR if present) is damaged. If the field has been demagnetized it can be recharged by a 12 V battery, connected for a short time to +, - of the excitation winding, with engine running.

No 240V

check for a circuit breaker that is tripped, as well as a switch that enables 240volt (at the cost of 120 volt current being cut in half.). The switch puts the alternator windings in parallel (120volt full power) or series (240 volt @ half 120volt current).

My generator runs but will only put out 3.8 volts on the 120 volt receptacle. Changed AVR on the advice of Champion Technician. Problem persists. What else can I check?

I'm not sure what
AVR = (automatic voltage regulator?)
You could try to excite the generator pg.7
Check the brushes pg. 7
Check the capacitor
Other than that you could open the box where the outlet is sometimes the wire breaks off or comes loose even if its new. Good Luck

Valsi Generator 7500W no output voltage

Good Luck with that...but if engine runs and there is no output voltage, that generally means that the stator needs to serviced or replaced (likely as pricey as a new genny).

No electrical output

probably your AVR card is burnt...
an AVR card is located right outside the stator...looks just like an AK-47 clip (i don't know how else to describe it)...i put a pic below this.
replace it and check again
