First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

Putting new gas line on as I have had lots of trouble with gas leaks. anyway gasket fell off of carb. can you send a pic of how it goes on? the gasket that is


Mike,

Sorry to hear the carb is leaking. This happens when the Carb Float Needle gets stuck and is easy to rectify.
If you watch this video on YouTube it will show you how to free up the Float Needle. It is the same procedure on all Carbs:

I Have a Rural King Generator it starts Fine but only runs a few minutes and it shuts off


Make sure the gas is fresh. Also, take off the carb bowl and look for signs of gumming. If there is gooey stuff in the bowl, then the carb needs to be cleaned.

Need a sigma 6500e assembly diagram


I just purchased a Sigma 6500E generator, there was no instruction manual with it. Did get in stalled, but couldn't find out where to connect the battery cable, also there was nothing about the engine at all. Does the battery get charged when the generator is running ?
I would hope that information is available for this unit. thank you

Operation of a Devilbiss GT5000 generator


not to familiar with the generators however , I do know that the old style receptacle for 240 volts was three prong. Then OSHA got a hold of it and added a second ground to make it 4 prong, Thats why some houses use a 3 prong dryer cord and some use a 4 prong. hope this helps. and if it has 2 240v outputs BONUS they dont make em like they used to.

Trying to hook a 3 prong hook up with 4 prong cord how do i do it?


A 3 prong plug is for 240 volt (hot-hot-ground) the 4 prong plug is for 120/240 volt (hot-hot-neutral-ground). If your device requires a 4 prong plug, it is not a good idea to connect it to a 3 prong circuit (you will create a possible lethal electrical condition). If your device requires a 3 prong connection, a 4 prong cord can be used by not connecting the neutral (white wire). If you have any questions, let me know.
