Question about Honda 6370C - Parallel Power Kit For EU3000i
Honda EU3000i won't run my 15A electric log-splitter. It is rated to put out 15A but the power overload light comes on, and it won't send power to the log splitter. After browsing here, I'll next try turning OFF the eco-throttle setting. Any other suggestions? Will oil change, air filter clean-up, and such maintenance inprove performance?
If you attempt to use a 15 amp generator to power a 15 amp appliance you will have a big problem. Always plan to use no more than 80% of any power supply. You are currently trying to use the absolute maximum power this generator can supply, and it's probabally not rated for that load at continious use. Get a larger generator, or , a very sharp axe.
I hope this information was useful for you.

Hi, Well, at this point I would try a couple of things depending on the age of the genset. Definitely turn off the eco throttle. The 120v duplex plug is rated at 20amps but varies with run speed so lets assume it is close and the specs a little loose. Change the plug to the 125v locking plug which at full speed is rated at 30 amps and see if it holds. The rest would be dependent on age . This genset has a 2 year residential warranty and if it is under I would have it repaired under the warranty. I would at the very least test it or have it tested to see what the overload is tripping out on. My best guess from here is the overload circuit board if everything runs correctly. We use this genset out in the field for bull testing equipment and haven't had a problem like this even with an extension, (we use the locking plug). As far as your overhaul, if the genset is running up to speed and doesn't bog down it is probably OK. If you hear any difference in speed at all when you plug something in, change the oil, filter and spark plug and check your carb settings. Good Luck, let me know what you find out, hope this Fixsya!

The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.
The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.
