SOURCE: High voltage low cycles

I worked at a tool rental center while going to college and learned how to service generators. Most appliances/tools require 50 to 60 cycles at 110 to 120 v. Your engine was designed to give maximum horsepower at 3600 rpm. Adjust the engine speed to produce 60 cycles and the engine should be at 3600 rpm and producing around 120v max. (Some special generators were designed to produce 230v 180 cycles, check manual) If your generator incorporates capacitors check them for at least 95% of printed uf value. They should be removed from circuit for testing. If there are two caps and one is weak make sure the new cap reads close to value of remaining cap. Finally there is usually a voltage regulator that varies the power to the armature magnet trying to maintain steady voltage depending on amp draw and engine condition. This regulator has no adjustment and is pass or fail type of item. Good luck, enjoy

I have this errors code to this car.p1637,p1638,p1699 and p1260.i change the batery and check all conectors .any ideea please?


What make , model an year vehicle ?
Generator L Terminal P1637? / Possible alternator problem The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the generator turn on signal circuit to control the load of the generator on the engine. A high side driver in the PCM applies a voltage to the voltage regulator. This signals the voltage regulator to turn the field circuit ON and OFF. When the PCM turns ON the high side driver, the voltage regulator turns ON the field circuit. When the PCM turns OFF the high side driver, the voltage regulator turns OFF the field circuit. Strongly suggest you take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

Automobile headlamp bulb often burned


Filaments often burn out, the reasons are: voltage regulator has fault, the voltage is too high; bad contact battery wire, causing the generator no-load voltage is too high; the generator armature and field coil short circuit. If you open the light switch, the bulb burned out immediately, you should check the charging circuit has no circuit. If often burned out light bulbs, check voltage generator voltage regulator is adjusted too high. we also support wholesale bump at online store

High voltage rpm power generator output


Not sure what you mean "high voltage rpm power generator out", however many people have asked how to adjust the engine for proper voltage output. On generators with~out a voltage regulator, I adjust the engine RPM by using a digital voltage meter that has a Hz setting. Adjust the governor untill the meter displays 60 Hz. With the geneator producing 60 cycles, I know that the engine is turning 3600 rpm (the engine produces max hp when it is turning 3600 rpm). At this point, read the voltage output to verify that the range is between 115 ~ 120. On generators with a voltage regulator, verify/adjust that generator is producing 60 cycles then adjust voltage by turning screw at the regulator (some regulators are sealed with potting compound and can not be adjusted). If your power demands are not that great and you appliance can operate at 50 cycles, adjust governor as needed. Lowering to 50 cycles will also reduce output voltage. Good luck

Code P0621


P0621 Generator Lamp/L Terminal Circuit Malfunction,,The Engine Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) uses the generator turn on signal circuit to control the load of the generator on the engine. A high side driver in the ECM/PCM applies a voltage to the voltage regulator. This signals the voltage regulator to turn the field circuit ON and OFF. The ECM/PCM monitors the state of the generator turn on signal circuit. The ECM/PCM should detect low voltage on generator turn on signal circuit when the ignition is ON and the engine is OFF, or when the charging system malfunctions. With the engine running, the ECM/PCM should detect high voltage on the generator turn on signal circuit. The ECM/PCM performs Ignition ON and RUN tests to determine the status of the generator turn on signal circuit.

THE VOLTAGE COMING FROM THE GENERATOR IS NOT RIGHT. iT WILL BLOW A LIGHT BULB INSTANTLY


Connect a voltage meter to the 115v plug and measure voltage. If too high, adjust governor spring tension to compensate. Your engine developes max horsepower at about 3600 rpm. At this speed the generator should be producting 115v at 60 cycles. Good holidays

My 10 years colman generator running ... I feed 240V to the main of the house, it used to work OK. But this time, most of my light bulb went bursted after 3-5 min. However, some are not... what has...


it sounds alot like it is producing alot more power than 120 volts per leg you should really only have plus or minus 10 percent of that voltage anymore will blow lights check voltage output with meter, if voltage is high may have problem with voltage regulator and it may need be replaced. I assume that not all of the lights in the house are on the same circuit therfore not on the same leg of the generator so is probably only one leg of generated power to high there for only blowing some of the lights

Voltage is high around 150 volts. I reduced the


The speed will change the 'frequency' too. You need to make sure you still have 60 Hz. You may have need a voltage regulator adjustment, not a speed adjustment.

Three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High


Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.
