Low voltage at recepticials


If the front DOES NOT say "chopper technology", then the fine control knob MUST be turned all the way up for full aux power. Low engine RPM can also cause this issue. If your meter can read frequency, it should read a little above 60 Hz at full speed with no load.

by any chance welder has set for a while, or maybe got water in feul , simply drain carb, drain located at bottom of feul bowl, notice if water comes out ,its normal to get a little water thru years of use , try to drtain in container if possible, replace feul filter , and try to clean feul bowl out best you can , give it a try

Generator has voltage drop, why?


Most of the small portable generators will depend on the engine speed to regulate the voltage. If the motor is at the correct speed you are getting 120 volts 60 hertz, if not it will read lower like 115 volts 55 hertz or so. This can be fixed by adjusting the governor, or idle speed needle.

I have a heart freedom20 inv. batt. chger that runs at 120 hertz .It does everything (charges switches etc.just fine bu the ac output is at 120 hertz instead of 60.


First check the voltage, if the voltage is good then check the hertz with a different meter because if the hertz went up to 120 everything onboard should have burnt out. The hertz works on the low voltage side of 120vac. before going to a repair shop first check the hertz meter. Good luck.

I don't know if you already solved the problem, but did you check what the maximum output power of your aircraft is? The nespresso machine needs about 1250 Watts, which is a lot of power. A vacuum cleaner or microwave use less power than that (maybe between 800 - 1000 Watts). Maybe that difference is the reason. Also, you mentioned that you converted from 220V 50Hz to 120V 60Hz. I think you only converted the voltage, a frequency converter would cost thousands of dollars.

Model pm0525312.18 serial 914080230 engine runs good but the voltage drops of from about 125volts to 90 volts when you put on about 1500 watts. does this model have a voltage regulator? what is a bridge...


According to the parts pdf, there is no voltage regulator. Voltage is adjusted by the rpm of the engine. If your have a meter that reads hertz (Hz), you can set the engine rpm by adjusting hertz to 60 cycles (Hz). At 60 cycles the engine is running at about 3600 rpm. Most engines develop their max horsepower at this rpm. If you are loosing power/voltage and the engine speed is not dropping below 3600, than most likely could be problem with capacitor, brushes or diode (bridge diode). The diode converts ac voltage from stator to direct current to power the magnet (rotor). Check for brush wear and test capacitor for value printed on part. It should test with 5% of stated value. Diode can also be easily tested with meter. Good holidays

Lincoln ranger 250 voltage problem


Hi,
Check the current control resistor with an ohm meter. The center terminal should have a smooth rise or fall of resistance when measured to one end or the other of the resistor. If the resistor and the wiring to it are OK, check the shunt in the output it'll be by the "electrode" terminal. If both are OK you probably have a bad control board.

Regards,
Carl
