wow, that is high, i would think voltage regulator is faulty also

SOURCE: 30 volts coming out of generator

sounds to me like a grounding issue. I would check all my ground paths and look for poor connection or corroded contacts, broken or almost broken wires etc. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: ENGINE RUNS BUT NO POWER TO OUTLETS

When you flash the field, are you going + 12 volts to the top or right side brush? Negative to the other brush? Try three times for 2 seconds?

SOURCE: I disassembled my EM650 Generator and to clean out

Most generators (except the latest inverter generators)
produce power directly dependent on RPM's.
The governor adjustment is critical.
This usually is in the form of an adjuster that through a spring, applies a preload to the governor arm.
The governor arm is attached to a shaft that disappears into the motor. Inside there is usually a set of weights that when spun faster will attempt to slow the motor and when spinning too slowly will attempt to increase revs. The adjustment you need to make is to the preload spring.
They are very sensitive to the motor being in good tune so do the air cleaner, spark plug etc before trying to get it right. Under voltage can do more damage than over voltage so take your time and get it to a good steady correct voltage with your usual expected load on it. A safety trip out box gives you a way to test voltage with a load on & some protection.
Work safe

SOURCE: My generator runs fine but won't put out any

inside the gen head in the back their will be a 1x1x3/8" black
with 4 wire conn thing it is a rectifier theirs a hole in the center for mounting as well replace that and should be ok a big surge and age will take them out try this i willing to bet that's it unless it is smoked the part is common and avail by ebay as well as radio shack numbers will cross ref on the item good luck hope this helps

How to increase the output voltage


Measure the Generator after 10 minutes the first measure but not only to one power outlet with doing a measure with a multimeter its not done so because the generator is fully unloaded then you will see 105 vac
Measure on one outlet and use a paint stipper a 2000 watt type and measure at the same time on the second power outlet with a multimeter on AC you should get more volts out to measure instead of 105 volts then you hear that its generate power and blow more smoke you will be seen a 115 or 120 volts if you increase this generator its possible you get if you are increase the idle power to 120 volt can create an over loading of 200 volt or more over the outlets that can give damage if it the stator electric field generate power outside its level it can blow up your expensive tools and in a short time you think there is not enough power on my tools anymore then your armatures are become bad and the tools are hot in a short time warmt dissipation has blow up armature and nothing smels hot but the tools are blowing up. and you see nothing inside because the tools will not are getting black burned and hot but the to high magnetic pulse burns the weak points inside the armature in a fraction of time.
Beware of that the adjusting is normally doing with a tacho meter and a suggestion of about 3000rpm and not more of the stator what its max depend on model . but adjust by the load power of a working paint stripper it can have enough if you adjust 120 volt by load.

My temperature gauge doesnt work


Easy test ground the sensor wire to ground(intake manifold) the guage should max out if not check for power on the back of the instrument panel at the guage if you have power on one side ground the other side if it works .If grounding it at the guage makes it work bad connection at the sensor or broken wire

I have a 2001 flhtcui what are the ac reading coming from stator at 2.5k rpm 3k rpm and 3600 rpm. At 2000 rpm I get about 12 volts dash guage reading but at 3000 I get 13.5 to 14 at lower rpm 2000 or so I...


The AC output of the stator should be 32-40 volts at 2000 RPM (16-20 per 1000 RPM). With the battery fully charged, your regulator should supply between 13.5 and 15.0 DC volts to the battery. This should be the reading you get on your voltmeter. It will vary depending on what lights and other equipment you have turned on. Sounds like everything is working fine to me. The gauge is reading the DC voltage at the battery while the engine is running. At 2000 RPM, 12 volts is a little low but, considering the accuracy of the gauge, as long as it doesn't fall below 12 volts, it's about right. You don't ride for extended periods at engine RPMs that low. Then at 3000 RPM, 14 volts is about right. If your bike never ran anymore than 12 volts, your battery would slowly go down. If it goes any higher than 15.0 volts, it will boil the battery. Usually, about 14.3 or so with no load on the system is about right.

Good Luck

Why would my new 1500 watt inverter readout show overload 13.8 volts entering


It would show overload if you're drawing more power than it can supply. 1500 Watts is a very high output for an inverter but that is the maximum it's capable of. As with any electrical supply you should not draw the maximum power it's capable of as this can cause it to burn out. Around 1200 would be the max you should draw continuously. You need to check the power requirements of whatever you're running on it. Also you need to check that it's capable of taking 13.8 volts. If 12 volts is the recommended input, putting in 13.8 will increase the voltage output which could damage appliances being run on it.

I Am installing a Generac 20Kw air cooled unit with a 200 amp service disconect ATS What size conductors do i use from the generators 100 amp breaker to the transfer switch


It is always good to install a large enough wire where the maximum load can be drawn plus a little extra for safety. 7 gauge wire will do, if it was mine I would use 6 gauge wire. If the length is over 20 feet but not longer than 80 feet go to the next larger size wire.

2005 express fuel gauge shows emrty all the time? how do i know if its the sending unit or just a bad gauge


you have to back track the wire from the sending unit to the guage. If there is no power when you put your volt meter to the wire and the body you should get movement. There could be a break in the wire, or it could be a bad guage or a sending unit. obviously the sending unit is the hardest to fix. So start with the wire, then the guage then the sending unit. If you do replace the sending unit. I personaly would replace the wire no matter what. One solid wire with a good heat and weather proof coating.
