SOURCE: I have a 115/240 volt generator newage brand I

Hi Cyril and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What you want to do is not that hard. AU power is 50 Hz which means that your generator will run at 3000 RPM vs 3600 RPM. If this is a diesel it will run at 1500 RPM vs 1800 RPM. Smaller single engine diesels run at 3000 to 3600 RPM. Slowing the run speed is a matter of adjusting the governor speed plate off to the side of the governor arm. Then the voltage regulator will have to be re-adjusted up to 230 / 240 VAC.

Frequency is controlled by engine speed. Voltage is controlled by the voltage regulator. It is nearly impossible for me to guess the model number your genset / alternator as each manufacturer will use their own part numbers. Here is another problem... if the Alternator end is an inverter type power head the voltage can only be adjusted by changing the 2 large condensor / capacitors.

I may be able to help you but I really nead a complete model number for the generator set. If you know the engine model number I can probably find the manual for you that would show you the components of the governor speed plate. Most times it is a matter of losening a locking nut on a screw and turning the screw CCW to slow engine speed then securing the locking nut on the speed set screw. There can be a nut on the face of the speed plate that you barely have to loosen to make the speed adjustment. Just make sure to tighten the nut again once you set the speed.

Without a model number I am hung out to dry trying to help you. With the Engine and Gen/power head model numbers I can do a much better job of trying to help you.

SOURCE: Hi I have 6.5 kva

Hi, I have been tying for quite some time to narrow down the complete unit model number. The wiring diagram is in the manual that if you know your model number canbe downloaded here:

I have tried the AS3660, 0950-BG2 and AS3740 numbers without success.

If you can not find the unit model number ask them using this link:

It really has been frustrating simply because the model number just does not seem to be availble via searches. Three different attempts in the last 6.5 hours without success. I only want to help you. I could care less about the money.

Have a newage stamford alternator c20a kva 15.625 bolted to a deutz model f2l912 engine and have tried to pull the 2 components apart but can only get the 2 parts about 1 inch apart anybody got the an

from what you are describing the generator is a 15 kva unit bolted to the back of a deutz engine
check the end of the alternator armature for a bolt head. it is possible that there is a long bolt going through the centre of the armature shaft and holding the armature to the crankshaft on a taper
some older units used 4 rubber blocks in the drive from the crank shaft and there is a plate to retain them in place ( They were a safety device to protect the unit from damage if the mains power come back on while the generator was running. The out of phasing would stop the armature and rip the rubber blocks up)

Old Stamford Alternator C20 A is only giving 150v each phase to Neutral and 265 phase to phase...Anyone no how to change for 240/415v

At first you should have nominal (rated) speed (1500 rpm or the written in your specification).
If you have it you should find your AVR (may be inside the alternator terminal box, or somewhere inside the alternator box), the voltage control trimmer and adjust to what you want the voltage to be. If not possible the AVR may be damaged.
The adjustment depends on your type of control system for the set as a whole.
If it is digital (computerized) the adjustment may also be digital.
If your system is too old it may have no AVR, but only transformed rectifier field supply. In this case you should check the transformer, choke (if any), rectifier and the condensers.

There should be a diagram inside on the wall of the unit where the jumper bars are, where you change voltage connections.

Need a diagram for this overcomplicated machine

Will probably bin it. Long experience shows that the ONLY alternators worth having are the British made Newage-Markon which IMHO are superior to both Sawafuji and Mecc-Alte. Voltage Dependent Resistors (VDRs) also known as Transorbs are essential if long term reliability is desired from small gensets. Haverhill Generators get around the voltage spike problem another way - 8 microfarads across the output but one Haverhill generator that I repaired had vibrated apart its control box wiring and fan. These little machines all leave a lot to be desired unfortunately and seem to give endless trouble.
