Makita Generator Starter problem

We have a Makita 12000R generator. When connected to a battery, the starter starts spinning. The key is off. Our local mechanic says that he believes it is not the switch nor the starter that is causing the problem. Any ideas??

SOURCE: Generator will not start

Is the oil sump full? Has it been run with out oil? You can do an amp draw test on the starter. Should be 60 amps or so. Can you roll the engine by hand? If engine turns free pull the starter out and bench test it with jumper cables. Positive cable to cable lug and negative cable on the starter case. Hang on to it, lots of torque. If the stater turns slow or gets hot it is probably bad.

check the oil pressure switch, if it does not register it will also give a code and will not start.

Sounds like the electritian wired something wrong. Control wiring for that generator should be:
N1 and N2 = 240 vac utility input
Wire 0 = ground
Wire 194 (15B) = + battery
wire 23 = transfer signal

Your charging regulator has failed. The reverse voltage caused one or more diodes to fail shorted, and this short is blowing the fuse.

How can i convert the rope pulled generator into automatic start generator...


Yes you can install an electric starter on your generator if the following conditions are present. Starter/fan cover has cutout for starter, the flywheel has ring gear and block has taped holes to mount starter. Examine the engine where the starter would normally be installed (look at a generator like yours with the same motor that has the starter installed ) and check that the mounting holes are there and threaded to receive the bolts. If threaded holes to mount are there and access thru starter cover to flywheel is there, check that the flywheel has a ring gear where starter motor engages. If all present starter can be installed however you will not have the charging coil which is normally under the flywheel to charge battery; but you can still use the generator to charge the battery. To locate parts, use model number of the engine not the generator. Good Luck

Need help finding fuseible link that goes to starter


CHARGING SYSTEM
The charging system is an integral part of the battery and starter systems. Since all of these systems work together, any diagnosis and testing should be done in conjunction.

The charging system is protected by a 12 gauge fusible link located in the A11 circuit. This fusible link is between the generator and the starter.

The generator ground is provided through a case ground in the generator to its attaching bracket. This generator uses a voltage regulator internal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

When the vehicle is running, battery voltage is applied to the generator field terminal through the A142 circuit. This circuit is the output from the contact side of the Automatic Shut Down (ASD) relay. The ground, or voltage regulated side, of the generator field is controlled by the K20 circuit which connects to cavity 4 of the PCM connector.

When there is current present in the field, and the rotor is turning, the stator in the generator produces a B+ voltage that is supplied to the battery through the A11 and A0 circuits. The A11 circuit is connected to the output terminal of the generator and connects to the engine starter motor battery feed terminal. The A0 circuit is a direct feed line from the battery and connects to the engine starter motor.

Grounding for the system is accomplished at the battery negative terminal. These grounds connect to the engine and body.

HELPFUL INFORMATION
Inspect for a blown fusible link in the A11 circuit between the generator and the starter motor.

other Fusible link goes from the starter to the alternator. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I am trying to connect battery terminals to my EQT generator.


Connect the black lead (negative) to the frame of the generator.

Connect the red lead (positive) to the big post on the starter solenoid. There are 2 big post terminals on the solenoid. Connect the battery positive lead to the one that DOES NOT go to the starter motor.

I cannot crank my coleman powermate generator.


If the engine will not crank-if it has an electric start, first check the battery and connections to the starter and ground. If the battery is good and the connections are clean and tight, then I would check the ignition switch. If it clicks once when the key is turned to the start position, check for a seized crankshaft (see below) If it does not click, then it could be the starter, solenoid, or the ignition switch. If it has a manual pull start, and it will not pull, check to make sure the crankshaft can turn freely and if not, disconnect the pull starter and check it again-if it turns freely the rope start mechanism is hung up-it must be freed up before you can pull start it. If the crankshaft will not turn at all you probably have a serious problem that will require a major teardown.

Generator won't start & now starter will not shut off when it has power


I have seen this happen in cars- the problem is most likel the ignition unit -they do not spend a lot of money on them in production. So here is what is happening . When you are putting key in and out metal filings are being deposited inside unit- this is now causing a short and draining batteries. Start here.This happened with cars a few years ago and they were catching fire in driveways.Call dealer and get replacement ignition- should be cheap fix. Good luck.
