My Woolf 900 generator starts fine initially. When put on load (600w) it is reluctant to get up to speed (45secs) but eventually gets there. When load is taken off it doesn't go back to idle and event

Does it have and automatic idle? If so cut it off and see if engine can run at 3600rpm no load. If still stalls, your jets(brass tube) have something blocking holes and carb needs either a real good clean in a dip, rebuilding, or replacing.

SOURCE: auto idle on a reddy rgh11000 ie will not idle down

This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

SOURCE: coleman 1850 sport, no/ low generator output

Hi,
The engine should run at 3750 rpm at no load. If that's OK then you may need to troubleshoot the capacitor inside the end of the generator opposite the rope. Since the thing has been stored for some time you may just need to flash the field of the generator to restore the residual magnetism in the rotor. The easiest way to do this is thru the 110 outlet but it's a little dangerous. Plug an old lamp cord into the outlet, start the generator, and momentarily connect a 9 volt dry cell to the wires, then shut the generator down and see if there is 110 when you restart it.
Regards,
Carl

Check your air filter to make sure it is clean, especially if the gen. has been run in dirty, dusty conditions. Make sure the gas tank vent is not clogged.

Also, pour some combustion cleaner into the carb. through the air intake to clean the carb. It sounds like it is starving for gas.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Husky 5000w Generator with a Subaru engin.

Fuel system needs cleaned. Dirt or build up get's in the passages and it can not properly regulate the fuel/air mixture. Being it runs well in choke position I would suspect it is plugged on the idle passage. Sometimes you can add a very small amount of "Seafoam" to the fuel and let it run while slowly moving the lever to the run position and this will clean it out. It is also possible that the fuel tank has a small amount of water in it. Good luck and have a great day.

My coleman powermate pro 6750 generator only puts out like half power, after 30 minutes it loads up and runs fine. what causes this?


It would be surprising to me if the engine was running at proper speed while it is not putting out full power. I am not familiar with your particular model so my answers are coming from knowledge of generators in general. If it is running at proper speed then it would have to be a regulator problem. This is assuming that it isn't trying to run in an overload condition and that you are letting it run a little before you put a load on it.

When i start the generac 15000 it starts fine but once a load is put on it it will die aS SOON AS THE LOAD STARTS IT JUST QUITS


Check the governor and throttle for easy movement. When the load increases, the governor should advance the throttle to keep the speed up.

Generator had been running for 3 hours with a/c and refrigerator and lights (on concession trailer)when we experienced a loss


the unit has gone into over load
The total power requirement has exceed the output of the generator
for example if the generator is a 2.500 kw or kva then it will generate well at 1.8 kva or kw but it will not run forever at 2.5 kva -kw
When a ac is running the power requirement will be constant on the generator and with the fridge as well then the load will be at the maximum out put of the unit.
when the fridge starts again the extra load will exceed the max out put of the generator and it will slow down ( lights dimming ) and eventually go into overload mode
have an accredited electrician calculate your maximum load requirement for an external power supply and then get a unit that is at least 15.. kva kw better that required
generally fridges use 1000watts , ac conditions will draw over 3000watts and any thing else adds up . I am guessing that your generator is only 2500 unit

Champion 71000i generator overloads


Can you provide more detail on this? Such as under what conditions it overloads, and how much power you're drawing off of it? Keep in mind that generators have two ratings: Sustained Load and Peak Load. Mine, for example, can handle a sustained load of 1,750 watts, and can handle short-term peak loads of 2,000 watts. Note also that if you're running a microwave, they take a lot. So does anything with a motor in it (refrigerator, etc) on initial start up. Once you've added up all your loads, adjust to where you're within your generator's sustained load and you should be fine.

Onan Propane Generator Problems


Is the generator coming up to proper speed? A cycles (hertz) (should be 60 in USA) meter will tell.
If it is up to speed, see if a UPS unit is made powerful enough to power the microwave. That will handle the initial starting load from the microwave.
UPS units are handy to power stuff while you are getting the gen going.

My 20Kva Generac generator run for about 30 minutes and automaticly shut off. The alarm indicated that the generator has over speed. I don't know where to adjust or set the right hz.


The speed should be such that 60 Hz is generated when under load.

The govenor MAY be out of adjustment.

The speed for 60 Hz should be one of the following:

3600, 1800, 900 RPM

Coleman 1850 no/low generator output


Both the Hz and the voltage will be wrong if the engine speed is low. You need to use either a DMM with a HZ function to set the engine speed so that you get 61.5 Hz at no load, or use a tachometer to set the no load speed to 3750 rpm.
