You are probably trying to run to many things at the same time. Electric water heater, refrigerator, furnace blower, cook range, to many lights.

Why wouldn't my em5000sx honda generator not run my rheem gas heater.


  • The Auto Throttle System switch needs to be in the off position.
  • If the generator has not been used for awhile than the fuel is stale and the generator may be slow in responding to the load change. Replace fuel with fresh fuel.
  • Attach a second load such as a 100 watt light bulb standard bulb with a tungsten filament. Observe the light as the heater cycles. If the light goes very dim than the generator is slow responding to a load change. Generator carburetor needs to be cleaned, tune-up. Run fresh fuel under load to see if carburetor will clean itself.
  • Try adding choke to see if richer mixture reduces voltage dip. Check manual for mixture adjustments.

Generator had been running for 3 hours with a/c and refrigerator and lights (on concession trailer)when we experienced a loss


the unit has gone into over load
The total power requirement has exceed the output of the generator
for example if the generator is a 2.500 kw or kva then it will generate well at 1.8 kva or kw but it will not run forever at 2.5 kva -kw
When a ac is running the power requirement will be constant on the generator and with the fridge as well then the load will be at the maximum out put of the unit.
when the fridge starts again the extra load will exceed the max out put of the generator and it will slow down ( lights dimming ) and eventually go into overload mode
have an accredited electrician calculate your maximum load requirement for an external power supply and then get a unit that is at least 15.. kva kw better that required
generally fridges use 1000watts , ac conditions will draw over 3000watts and any thing else adds up . I am guessing that your generator is only 2500 unit

My kohler generator was running with out a flaw.


Double check your grounds at both the frame and the battery. Otherwise, your starter probably has a shorted field.

Powermate Maxa 5000 er will not run stably


Check the fuel filter. My company designed hybrid generators that are far more efficient. They use batteries to power your equipment, and the generator runs intermittantly to recharge the batteries when needed.

If you would like to convert to hybrid, contact me at buffalonymann@yahoo.com

Battery light is on


the Alternator (this keeps the battery charged) is not charging the battery, the lights dim due to the battery voltage dropping low, go to any Kragen or Autozone and have the battery and the Alternator/generator tested, it is free.

Lights and appliences dim


If this is an XL4000 I first check on the condition of the brushes and slip rings, then look at the voltage regulator.
