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: The generator starts up then dies?

Check the oil pressure switch. It will shout you down like that if it doesn't sense oil pressure.

SOURCE: Lombardini diesel generator starts and runs fine but no elecpower

remove the covering panel and expose the internals , check for loose/disscontected push on ( lucar ) connectors , if these are fine it is most likely the excitation capacitor is deffective , replace with exactly the same value/voltage rating/duty cycle . the capacitor is usual 1 or up to 3 cylindrical tubes with 2 wires comming from them , always take a note of exactly what wires you have taken off :) hope this helps

SOURCE: generator runs, but produces no power

If it's still under warranty take it back to the retailer and tell them it quit working - don't offer any other information.

If you must fix the E/G yourself - On the generator there's a cover on the back; take the cover off so that the back of the windings are exposed. You should see 4 to 6 diodes mounted to the rotor and stator...those diodes are most likely burned out because of temperature failure, due to overload. You have to take them out to isolate them...they should read .6 Ohms one way; reverse the leads and they slhould read about 1.2 Ohms. If there shorted you'll read 0 Ohms and open infinety.

Anyway, replace those diodes and you should re-establish your field winding voltage which develops you A/C output.

Good Luck,
Mike...

DEWALT DG6300B NO POWER OUTPUT


Hello avid.....

If there is no power to the receptacles:

1. Turn the circuit breaker switches off and disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.


2. Turn the circuit breakers on and test the GFCI's by following the procedures in this manual

on page 1 -

TO TEST A GFCI:

Start the generator. Turn the auto idle switch off. Push in the TEST button (A) on the receptacle.

The RESET button (B) will pop out. Power is now off at the receptacle.

If the RESET button does not pop out, the GFCI is not working. Do not run

generator until the problem can be corrected. To restore power to receptacle,

push the RESET button in. If the RESET button pops out during operation,
stop the generator and check the generator and equipment for defects.

3. Place the voltage selector to the 120 Volt only positions (unless you are using a tool that

requires 240 Volts).


4. Turn the idle control switch off.


5. Turn the circuit breaker(s) off and reconnect the electrical loads. Be sure that the plugs are

securely connected to the receptacles.


6. Turn the circuit breaker(s) on.


7. If there is still no power at the receptacles, take the generator to an authorized DEWALT
service center. To locate a DEWALT service center nearest to you, call 1-800-4-DEWALT

Hi my honda generator runs for a couple of min then turns off this seems to happen more when its cold but happens when warm just not as much anyone have a idea of what it is


First off, Jason, what is the model number of your generator? It helps to know what product you're having trouble with so the correct information can be provided to you to help you solve your problem.

It sounds like the choke is staying on after starting. If you have an automatic choke, check for free movement of the choke spring and lever assembly (behind the carb). If it's a manual choke, remember to push it in once the engine is running smoothly (after 20 seconds).

It could be a fouled sparkplug or clogged air filter element too, but, again, without the model number it is very difficult to solve your problem.

You need to go to the Honda website and download a copy of the owner's manual for your specific generator and follow the step-by-step instructions for operating and troubleshooting your generator.

Here's the link to get your free online owners manual:

Hope you find this info Very Helpful and best regards!


The following helpful basic steps are from Honda:
To start your generator:
  1. Review your owner's manual to ensure familiarity with your generator's controls and operation.
  2. Move the generator outside.
  3. Check the fuel level and add more fuel if necessary.
  4. Check the oil level and add oil if necessary.
  5. Check the air filter and clean if necessary.
  6. Turn the circuit breaker off.
  7. Turn the fuel valve on.
  8. Start the generator.
  9. Allow the generator the warm up for a few moments before turning the circuit breaker on.
  10. Connect the appliances or the transfer switch if applicable.

Hi Mike,
Your particular model generator uses the output of the generator to decide if the engine is running or not. You need to look at wires S15 and S16 at the control board to see if you're getting 120VAC while the generator is running. A quick simple test is to just see if there is output at the power wires that go to the transfer switch from the generator. The thing you don't say that ought to be happening is that the control board should crank the engine 3 times with a 15 sec or so pause in between crank attempts, then it should shut down and light up the "fault" lamp and quit.
Bottom line is that if you're getting 240 VAC across the output at the breaker, you've probably got a bad controller or wiring to it broken, otherwise you've got some kind of excitation problem keeping you from making electricity.

Regards,
Carl
