A.C. probably draws to many Amps.

I have a Husky 1850 watt generator with a Subaru motor. The motor runs great but will not produce AC. It was working fine then suddenly the lights went out in my garage. I replaced the diode but did not...


A couple of things would be worth checking into. Of course, I'd pretend that you checked the output fuse or circuit breaker? If you can check for voltage directly from the stator or armature and check the results. Nothing? If it has them, could be brushes. Also, if it's a fuse, don't just do a visual...check it with a test light or multi-tester of some sort.

check for spark when it cuts off also check the oil level some have a low oil shut off also dry and run it with the gas cap loose to see if the vent is plugged

Porter Cable BSI550 W 5,500 Watt Generator With 10 Hp Engine No AC output


Sounds like the generator unit (sometimes called the generator head) has overheated and melted the insulation in the windings. This is the same as an electric motor "burning out", and if this is the case, then the generator is toast. If you happened to notice that the lights or fans were getting dim or slowing down before the breaker tripped (without the gas engine slowing down) then this is most likely the case and you generator is toast. But if the output just suddenly quit, then it is possible that some smaller electrical component has failed. In any case, it's not something external that you can easily reset or replace. Sorry for the bad news.

Starts with ether then dies. I've cleaned the carburator and changed the gas.


Make sure that fuel flows freely from the tank to the carburetor. There should be a petcock (shut off valve) that has a screen on it (inside the tank), which also can become plugged with sediment. Work backwards from the carb, checking also the fuel supply line, back to the tank.

Engine starts and runs fine for about a minute


try to clean out the carb first with auto parts carb cleaner, then you may need to buy a totally new carb for the unit, as this company will NOT sell parts for these carbs due to the carb setting is sealed & has to stay at a set level for voltage output and setting

Gen starts and runs with rocker start button pushed in..stops....


Cleaning the brushes is used to address an AC output problem. If the generator would run for a few seconds after letting go of the button, then this might apply.

But, since yours is dying as soon as you let go of the button, that tells me that you are probably looking at a low oil condition, or a sensor / sending unit failure for oil level.

Without spec number, hard to remember if the sending unit is for low oil pressure, or low oil level. Either way, the ignition is being grounded. First, double check your oil level, make sure generator is reasonably level. If still not resolved, then locate the sending unit, and remove the wire that is on the end of it. There should be a connector either a few inches from the sending unit, or a few inches from the control board (coming from big white plug). Disconnect at either place. Try starting again. If it starts this time, double check oil levels. If those are fine, then sending unit has failed, or oil pump (if pressure unit) has failed. In either case, don't run for very long until sending unit is replaced, just in case.

I have no ac power output, but motor runs fine!


if you dont have the field excitation then you'll never get any AC no matter how your motor runs..field excitation comes in two types..one is by pole magnets and two is by field coils connected to a battery..

The battery doesn't stay charged in Guardian 10K


I think that is the problem as well. Temporarily, you could just buy a tricke charger from the parts house and hook that up until your other one is changed. Rick

ONAN 4000 RUNS FOR ONE HOUR AND DIES--ANY IDEAS WHY?


does it have original oil in it? if so they use a lighter weight oil than recommended for engine break in. change your oil and filter and see if that doesnt solve it.could be thinning out loosing pressure when hot. i have seen this beofore.. :)

Powermate 6250 model pm0545007.01 engine runs no a.c. output


You will need to install new diodes,they are located in the plastic housing behind the receptacles...It looks like little spark plugs..They work to put dc voltage to the rotor,without the exciter voltage applied,you will not get ac power out..The part number is 3483.01....You can buy these online for about $6 each,they have 2 inside the generator,and you should change both.
