SOURCE: auto idle on a reddy rgh11000 ie will not idle down

This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

SOURCE: 11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire

If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.

SOURCE: How do I remove the

Here is a copy of the owners manual and it has an exploded diagram that you can follow to remove the generator part. When you take off the back mount and then you will see inside a coil that rotates, this is the rotor, and a coil that is stationary around the rotor, this is the stator. Make sure that you take good photos and mark all wires that you disconnect, this helps in re-assembly later. To remove the back support called the brush head, you need to remove 4 long bolts and one in the center that holds the rotor to the engine. Gently tap the brush head away from the stator with a small hammer. You might need a small blade screwdriver to pry, remember GENTLE is the word here. Now, you might have to block up the stator so that it is supported since the brush head is removed. The stator might need some gentle prying to remove it from the engine. When pulling the stator off, be careful that you do not drag it on the rotor, this might damage the rotor. With the long bolt that held the rotor to the engine, screw it in and leave about 1/8" of it out so that the head does not make contact with the rotor shaft. Now with a small hammer, strike the head of the bolt while at the same time pulling on the rotor towards the head of the bolt. The rotor should come loose and you remove the bolt and pull the rotor off gently. To install, you never need to use the hammer to mount the parts.

Just up graded from a homelite 4400 to a craftsman 5600 generator 5600 does not have enough output as did the 4400 why


Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't. Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.
Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.
By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total resistive output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.
For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.
You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

Genarator runs short period of time & shut down


What type of motorhome & generator is it. Some generators will shut down (basically run out of gas) at 1/4-1/2 tank in motorhome as a feature, to allow you enough gas to get to a station, in case you forget. The fitting for fuel from tank, for generator is placed that way in tank. Is that not the case? Make sure you have at least 1/2 or more fuel in tank of motorhome just to be sure, as we found many that were supposed to be set about 1/4 tank, but were closer to half tank on motorhome.

look where you plug items in for power there should be a little circuit breaker there (a little black button) puss it in you should be ready to go.
