You should call the factory and complain. If you win against the factory you should recieve a whole generator end. Try to find a dealer near you to see if they will help.

There is just too much resistance in that cord. Get a 12 gage extension cord. And yes I think you burned out the generator due to severely overloading it.

Have a 4000 watt sportsman generator that will not produce electric i have replaced the avr what next

Could be lost exciter current. This is how to restore it - Connect 16 or 18 gauge wires to a 12 volt battery. With generator running, insert bare ends of wires into AC outlet - one to Hot, the other to Neutral. Insert and remove quickly. There should be a flash and power will be restored. If not, repeat until you get that flash and output current restored. Using light gauge wires is so that if you are too slow to remove them once AC is restored. they will burn out before the battery suffers from the AC incoming. Be quick and be careful.

Honda generator starts, runs, then stalls and backfires

Honda makes quite good gasoline motors. I doubt it is a valve timing issue but it might be a burned valve or a valve adjustment issue. What does after a while mean? A couple of minutes or 4 hours? Is it running for just a short while and then stops or it runs well for a long time and then stops?

You have to get a cord that has a plug on on it. On the other end of the cord strip the insulation off the ends of the wire about an inch. It would be easier if you put small clamps on the stripped ends of the wire. Connect the black wire to plus on a car battery and white to negative. Start the generator and plug the cord in to a outlet on the generator just for a second and take the plug out. The generator should now be producing electrical current. If not there is something burned out internally.

Your generator produces proper voltage and 60 cycles at 3600 rpm. Use meter to adjust voltage/engine rpm. If after adjusting rpm setting and gen. does not have proper power, remove cover to generator and examine brushes and commutator rings for wear and voltage regulator/rectifier for burned components swolen or leaking capacitor and replace parts as necessary. Parts are available Good luck

The generator runs fine but will not give us any powere

Hello, Has this generator been setting for awhile or was it in use when the power ever came back on? Have you tried to repolarize it? To do this , Shut off the generator and unplug any cords or wiring from unit. Take a electrical cord that has a plug on one end and seperate the wires on the other end of cord. Strip the ends of the wire back about half an inch on each seperated wire.Plug the Male end of the wire into one of the 110V recepticles. Connect one of the ends of the wire you stripped back to the positive side of a 12 volt battery. Now with the other end of the wire you stripped back touch it to the Negative side of the battery for 1 sec and remove it. Unplug the wire from the recepticle and battery. Fire up the Generator and check the voltage! This repolarizes the unit and fixes most non generating problems from Non use and back feeding! Hope that helped! Rick

Engine works but no power is produced

I have a COLEMAN 6250 Watt Powermate too, and it stopped producing 3 hrs into our blackout. I unbolted the four 7/16" bolts holding the end bell assembly, and looked at the circuit board (bridge rectifier assembly) and saw that 4 of the diodes had melted free from the circuit board. This is a $30 replacement part, and seems to be a common problem with these units.
Other common and cheap to fix problems may be the brushes are worn out. Unscrew the phillips screws under the plastic tab on the end bell of the generator, and pull out the metallic rectangular posts attached to the copper wires. If they are shorter than 1/4", broken, or uneven, they may need to be replaced. They are about $3 each.
I probably drew too much power from 1 outlet on the generator, and it caused the board to fail instead of tripping the circuit breaker. (BTW, the repair shop told me it would cost $550 to replace the entire rotor/stator circuit board assembly. I have a strong feeling they didn't even look at any of the above parts, because they didn't have a clue as to what they were doing!)

I liken this to taking your car in because it won't start, and the mechanic saying you need a new engine!

Good luck!

Powered up Coleman Generator. Generator made grinding noise

I don't know what unit you have, but I would say it was overloaded and shorted out the stator, burned up the voltage regulator, exploded the capacitor, or had a loose connection that caused some wires to burn up. Maybe remove the end plate off the generator end and take so pictures and will go from there.

Wow, you've got an ugly problem. It sounds like you already know that you have to pretty much disassemble these little buggers down to the frame to see anything inside, so I'll say what to look for:

1 - Burned wires in the part of the generator that doesn't move. This is the bit that carries the current shorted out by the mud.

2 - Burned wires in the part that does move. This is the bit that makes the magnetism that makes the electricity. There are also some diodes and MOVs tucked into the end of the plastic insulator

You're likley better off getting some other generator, sorry.
