Question about Yamaha Inverter Ef2000is 2000 Watt Generator

Ad

no

ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts

the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )

to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit

they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load

it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage

for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts

many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set

fully loaded uses more fuel /hr

wears out faster

has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles

will not cover extras like lights ,

a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress

talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

You can't. Total mismatch of power and impedance.

You need a mono amp that can push the RMS watts of the sub @ 2 ohm (sub wired parallel).

Check to see if there is a breaker that has popped as a first diagnostic step

It is ok to use 87 octane regular unleaded gasoline in a Honda EU2000 generator. I have been running it in mine for 4 years with no problems. Using the higher octane blends is just a waste of cash.

One consideration is how many circuits and how much total wattage is being used when the generator is in service.

"Gas Powered Generator GG2300 2300 Watts Surge 2000 Watts Continuous Output 10 Hours of Run Time at Full ."

This is a relatively small generator with 2000 watts output, so the problem may be that the generator can not handle the wattage demand. You can get a pretty good estimate of the wattage demand by adding up the wattage of everything , all lights, appliances, etc that's being powered by the generator. If the total wattage is greater than the output of the generator (2000 watts) then the generator is too small.

Make sure it isn't trying to start the HVAC with a locked compressor (IE it just turned off and is now trying to cycle on again) If it is shutting down due to low freq there is too much load for the HP the engine can deliver. That will cause too much current to flow and trip the breaker. Also be aware it takes 6 times current to start HVAC than to run it. How old is the generator? it may have normal engine wear and can no longer generate HP, Also when was it tunes up

Hello, I have the same exact generator, 2400 Yamaha. It works fine for my Ac, and then some. After it first kicks on, is the biggest surge. Then I have even after ac is running, I have had tv on and even used microwave. But as far as running you ac on your rv , not problem. I do it all the time. Mine is ulta quite, and 8 to ten hours run time on about a gallon of fuel. Mike

the generators are not built to be used in this application

NO. the capacitor resonates with a winding it is in parallel with as part of the voltage regulation.

Recharging a brushless generator can be tricky. I have had success using two 150 watt lamps in series between the running generator and the electric utility power. Search google for this method.

starving for fuel. the generator will always rev up when it is under a load or about to run out of gas. there will be a few adjustment screws on the carb... one for air and one for fuel. try increasing the fuel a quarter turn and see how that does
