    My Oman generator overheats and shuts down if I plug my battery charger in and have my air conditioning on and or coffee maker

    to start with with an air conditioner running (2000 +watts ) plus a coffee machine (1500 watts ) you are looking at 3500 + watts of power used from the generator
    the genset has to be of a minimum of 4500 watts to run full time with out over heating
    never mind what the rating says on the side, that rating is surge rated and the duty cycle is around 500 watts less than that figure
    So if your gen set is 3500 watts the power is at surge power and that will overheat the genset
    Of course you haven't mentioned the rating of the set , but overloading is the main reason for over heating

    Dr comes up wont start

    dr is door error
    this generation of dryer has alot of control board failures(the relay for the heat burns the terminals for the wires)
    you can inspect these relay connection visably by removing the front control panel

    you might want to try setting the machine to the fluff/air dry setting and try starting the dryer, if it starts in air fluff you need to check the connections on that relay
    this is not a factory taught test.
    its just something a customer pointed out one time and i have tried on many after the fact, and for whatever reason these machines will still run in fluff mode when the board is gone.

    1998 Hyundia Tiburon would stop after engine got hot and after cool down would start and run fine. Now after it has been sitting for awhile(7 months) it will not start! (it crankes over good) no gas or no...

    It's a sensor. I had one that was cracked. When the car warmed up the heat caused the crack to expand and the sensor wouldn't work. After the car cooled it was fine until it got hot again. The sensor is probably gone for good now. You would need diagnostics or troubleshooting to determine which one. You can get a hand held diagnostic computer for cars. Some auto parts stores check for free. You could see if any does a loan-a-tool.

    Hot chain saw wont start

    When it won't start, remove the spark plug, lay the base on engine metal with the wire on, and pull through. The spark should be blue and snappy. If nothing, try a fresh plug. If still nothing, the ignition module may be failing with heat. Try blowing out sawdust from the engine and case with compressed air to improve cooling. Does the engine 4-stroke when not cutting, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting? Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Hope some of this helps!

    Generator will start and run easy, then just die.

    Check for loose wiring connections, especially at the run or kill switch. Generators vibrate a lot so it could be as simple as something loose.

    My car stops on motion

    several things it could be
    alternator replacement
    relay is bad
    computer going bad
    over heat saftey feature thats killing the power so you dont crack your block
    make sure your fan is running and hook power to fan direct to an power fuse this is when you turn the key to on the fan starts running you can also add a toggle switch to cooling fan so when in accessory it wont run down battery
    your vehicle is equipeted with an electric cooling fan if this shuts off your vehicle over heats and shuts off
    this ensures vehicle is always running cool
