Check the rotor rings for cleanliness, they should be shiny, check the brushes and the capacitor, located in the end of the alternator bell housing cover

    Generator starts up ok. Hooked electric cord to house outlet and other end to generator but not electricity came on.


    Check the position of on/off switches, and circuit breakers that may be interrupting the flow of current.

    Generator was running fine and then the electrical output quit while the engine was running.


    Sounds like you did overload the capacity of the generator. What has happened is that the generator was happily running away producing the electricity required for approximately an hour and then an appliance such as an air conditioner, furnace, refrigerator, water heater, or similar large amperage draw fixture decided it was time to kick on for its cycle, or perhaps two or three of them kicked on at the same time, thereby raising the amperage requirement beyond the capability of the generator. All heavy duty appliances run at a given amperage but when they kick on for a cycle they draw almost 50 percent or more amps. Generators rated at 6000 amps or less will not power an entire home or business. When using this size of generator, disable some of your electrical items in the home by unplugging or switching off, and only connect the most important items needed for emergency use. A 3500 watt generator will only run a few lights and a television, plus only one appliance. This means that you could plug in the refrigerator and run it until it has gotten cold enough, then unplug it & connect the furnace or air conditioner or water heater so that they can do there job. Eventually you will be able to rotate through each appliance in turn, and hope the power will return soon. Your generator will likely have blown a capacitor, resistor or some similar repairable item. Some good quality generators will have an overload breaker installed, that trips before doing any damage and all that is needed is to find it and reset it, in order to continue using the generator.

    How do you flash a Coleman Powermate 3500 generator? Runs fine; no electrical output


    See some of my responses to other peoples generator problems.
    If you have no or very little electrical output, then you have overloaded the generator by placing a demand for too many amps from too many appliances for the size of the generator. You will have blown a capacitor, resistor, or similar item. Someone with a good electrical background will need to diagnose the problem and find the blown part.

    The generator kicked the breaker of and was smoking and smelled like electrical


    What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.


    I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.



    Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator cold...in its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.



    Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

    Why shuld we save electricity


    The argument for 'saving electricity' is saving at 'peak' times so additional generators don't have to be started up to meet peak demand. The additional generators are smaller, they cost more to run per Kilowatt generated.

    A second argument for saving electricity is so we can continue expanding our economy by adding new homes and businesses, without needing to build another electric generation plant.

    A third argument for saving electricity is your bill is lower.

    The Kvar product you posted under is a scam. If you want to reduce electric bill, consume less electricity.

    Generator stopped producing electricity


    if the generator has been sitting for a while you might have to excite the magnets to start producing power. plug in a reversible drill and with the generator running turn the drill in the reverse direction by hand while holding the trigger in the forward position.

    I can't remember if you plug in the generator to the electric panel first (with power turned to the generator and off of the main line feed) and then start the generator, or start the generator and then...


    OK, by talking about a plug, I am assuming you have made a double male plug to hook the generator to the electric panel. This is not really advised, because it is so easy for it to be plugged into an outlet by someone not knowing what it is far, and getting electricuted. Now, away from preaching, and to helping.
    It is best to hook it to the generator and then crank it, so you are not dealing with a load when you plug the systems together. When your power is restored, it would be good to install a plug to your electrical box and have it go to a disconnect like is on your outside A/C unit. It moves you away from the hot wires.
    Hope your power is on soon!
