Question about Makita Electrical Supplies

Open Question

Gillette 9000 watt generator. Brushless design. I set engine RPM to get a 62hz output from the 120v outlet (per the manual). The problem is i'm only getting 102 volts at the 120v outlet and 204 volts on the 240 outlet. Everything else works fine, and it does power loads, but I'm confused as to why i'm not getting the 120/125 volts out of the 120 outlet. By the way, if I crank up the engine speed I can raise the voltage to 110, but then I'm running at like 69 hz. Help.

SOURCE: No electrical output

probably your AVR card is burnt...
an AVR card is located right outside the stator...looks just like an AK-47 clip (i don't know how else to describe it)...i put a pic below this.
replace it and check again

Output voltage adjustment


Output voltage is based on 3600 rpm @ 60Hz. Sounds like your generator is over speeding slightly. Put a Frequency meter on the output of the generator and tune it to 61.5 Hz, that will get your generator in the 3600 RPM range.

How to adjust a fuel governor for a 3750 watt coleman generator


With parts list in hand, look at reference #21 governor arm and reference 89/90 adjustment screw. This adjustment will increase decrease engine speed. I would use a meter with hz setting to set engine speed to achieve 60 cycles. Sixty cycles on the meter would indicate that the engine is turning 3600 rpm which is max. If all working correctly, voltage should be around 120v at 3600 rpm and 60 cycles. Good luck

I purchased a Coleman Powermate 5000 6 years ago: Ser: 94411583. Never really used it for any length of time. Kept for emergency. An electrician checked it for voltage output a short time ago. 240V...


Voltage is adjusted by raising or lowering the engine speed (governor adjustment), however one must also pay attention to the rpm because your generator was designed to produce 120 volts at 60 cycles while turning 3600 rpm. Your electrician should have tested for htz while testing for voltage. I would recommend re-testing under load and adjust governor to turn 60 cycles to see resulting voltage.

Generac model pp5000t 5KW generator, new, runs perfect but no output. tried flashing the field but still no output.


There is a technique for energizing the field, as just flashing a brushless will not work.

It involves two series 150 watt lamps between the utility power and the running generator. You can find it with Google.

I'm reading 130VAC on the output. Can this be


It should read 115v-120v with full load. Yes, you can slow the engine down just a little, depending on the engine, there will be a high rpm adjustment. 130v with full speed, no load, is really not too bad.

No electricity from generator


If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

I have a dewalt generator that will crank and run fine for about 5 mins before it cuts off.


I am going to guess that this is an air cooled engine. When a genset shutsdown after 5 minutes it could be that the the oil pressure switch is not operating properly, or that output voltage is dropping out. Also, check the speed of the genset using a frequency meter at the outlets. It shouldn't be no more than 62Hz.

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
