Is that all the load on the generator? If so, it's probably just not regulating. Try loading it up with about 250W worth of lightbulbs (like one of those construction floodlights), it'll probably settle right down. The inverter charger is doing you a favor and protecting itself.

Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 6200 Watt Portable Generator voltage adjust


Usually the cause of slightly low voltage like this is that the engine is not running at full operating RPM. Find the high speed adjusting screw on the govenor linkage and adjust the engine RPM until the output is 220V - 240V

Put new battery on 14 hp v-twin Briggs, started and ran for a while. Shut motor off then came back and tried to start, acts like the battery is dead. Where is the generator/altenator located on these?


The generator is under the flywheel with or part of the ignition coil.

Check all the battery wiring and grounds. A bad or weak connection will act the same way.

It sounds like the mains sense wire is disconected from the control panel or the run wire is not being cut by the aux contact on the transfer switch.

Does it appear to be running as fast as it always did, as in RPM's are same as usual? If there is a fuel problem and rpm's decrease due to that, voltage will drop as well. Other causes may be internal problems with generator circuits etc, and will need technician to troubleshoot it properly.
You can try increasing the throttle manually and see if voltage comes up.

the power coming from your generator is probably "dirty", full of spikes and surges from the generator. If it accepts shore power and not gen power, then the generator is the most likely cause. If the generator in unregulated, you are stuck, but it could have a failing voltage regulator board, or Yamaha may have a solution.

please check the voltage your generator is supplying to the to the inverter because a high voltage and frequency can make the relays in the inverter to make clicking sounds,and also do not allow your inverter batteries to run completely low before you charge it

No charging voltage to battery


You can test the charger right at the battery. With the system just sitting in regular stand-by mode. If you lift the battery leads, they should have about 13.5 volts coming in from the trickle charger. If there is no voltage there, it can't charge. It would be a bad trickle charger.
