Question about Coleman Powermate Proforce 6,000 Watt 12 Hp Portable Generator #PM0106000

1 Answer

My Generator is putting out voltage on both the neutral side and positive side of 110 Volt recepticles. When hooking a meter to both sides (Neutral & Positive) it is showing 184 volts! It burnt up a 110V house fan! This generator does not have a 220V recepticle. It is a 110 Volt with a 12 Volt battery charger. It is a 4000 watt generator that has no brushes! Whats Wrong? HELP!!!

Check the voltage with a meter in all the recepticles with your meter leads in the left and right slots on the plugs. Is that 184 volts AC there? If so, your gen has big problems with the voltage regulator. Let me know what you read. You can check the right slot of each plug to the round ground hole on the plug too, should be 120 volts there.

80 gallon tank what is the voltage and how do i hook electric wires to it


Most Larger water heaters are 220 volt ac single phase. This means you need 3 wires, two hot wires one neutral or ground. You will need to come from the breaker box off of a dual breaker of 30 amps or better. See the manual with the new heater. In your breaker box you have two sides or in coming service. The right side and the left each side is hot 110volts ac. you need to pull one leg (hot) from each side into the dual breaker out to the heater connections. The ground or neutral wire is un-insulated copper. Run these wires out to the heater. One black hot at 110 vac, one white hot at 110 vac and one plain copper ground.

Just need to no witch one wire goes where Putin it back to gather it's a 6500 watt with two two tweenty plugs on one side of the round end and two one tens on other side


take the wires, and read them with a multi meter. checking the voltage of each line. the ones with no voltage will be your neutral wires and the ones that read 110 will go in each side of your 220 plugs, or two will go in one plug only with a jumper to the others and the bottom hole will be your neutral. you can jump one leg off the 220 plug for your 110 side and the other 2 wires from your 110 can go to ground.

Ok
you must have a problem with you neutral leg .
Check to mak sure all 3 wires from power cord are securely connected to machine. Next make sure recepticle at the wall
has a good neutral. Use volt meter to check your recepticle.
You should get 110 volts between any top and the bottom slot.
No 110 volts means check house wiring or recepticle
Yes 110 volts means problem with neutral wiring in machine.(Not likely)
good luck

Low output about 60 vac.


On the bottom right side of the engine there's a throttle with a set screw. This set screw is a fine adjustment for voltage control. The lever should be pushed until the set screw makes contact with the stop plate. Using a voltage meter, adjust the set screw until you hit 110 volt and then lock the set screw. I just bought the same generator, it was putting out 85 volts. Witha phillips screwdriver a wrench and a multi meter, I had 110 volts in less than 2 minutes. It now operates flawlessly.

Bosch universal mixer 800W. How do I change a 110 volt to a 220 volt? Is it possible?


Bosch is not very good about putting manuals or other documentation online for older products, so I'll have to give you generic advice.

Some electric motors have optional voltage connections. If your motor has this feature, there will be a box or removable plate on the motor with 110 Volt and 220 Volt connections inside. You would need to replace the line cord with a 220 Volt cord having the correct plug for the location you plan to use the mixer, and connect the motor "hot" wire to the 220 V connection in the motor junction box instead of the 110 V connection (the neutral wire goes to the same neutral).

If there is no such option available on the motor, you would also have to replace the motor with a 220 Volt version. Check the labeling on the speed control (inside the mixer) to be sure it is rated for 240 VAC, and check the power label by the power cord. If the label gives a single range of input voltages spanning both 110 VAC and 220 VAC (e.g., "Input 97 V- 265 V") then you only need to change the plug. Unless the electrical parts are all rated for 240 VAC or higher, conversion is not safe.

Some products (especially desktop computers) have a recessed switch on the back that lets you select either 115 VAC or 230 VAC input power. If you have this on the mixer, all you have to do is use a small tool to push it to the other position.

An alternative is to get a 230 VAC - 115 VAC transformer or inverter rated for at least 800 Volt-Amps and wire it with a 230 Volt plug on the primary side and a 115 Volt socket on the secondary side; then you can just plug in your unmodified mixer to this. If you cannot find a box like this, you can buy a "control transformer" from an industrial equipment supplier and put it in a suitable metal box. I recommend including a power switch and a 4 Amp dual-element fuse or breaker on the primary side circuit; you don't want somebody burning up the transformer with a 1200 Watt microwave oven or griddle.

I have a Briggs and Stratton 5500 watt Generator 30241, I live overseas and I use 220 volts 50hz. How can I adjust the generator to run on this voltage.


Hello, I would not advise you to adjust the speed without a frequency meter. for 220 volt operation, you will have to use the twist - lock receptacles and not use the neutral in the receptacle. This means one of the generator's hot leads is going to be the neutral in your system. The frame of the generator may be connected to the neutral of the generator, so be careful so that you do not receive an electrical shock. The voltage is adjusted within the receptacle box. There might be a small hole on the right side of the receptacle box that you can insert a small blade screwdriver into to make the voltage adjustment. You do not need to change this much to change the voltage. Now, the frequency is adjusted by a self-locking nut located under the air cleaner right side, when facing the engine. There is a spring on this nut / bolt assembly. I think it is a 5/16 nutdriver or socket that you need for this. Turn counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn. This will slow down the generator to about 50 - 55 hz. This is okay if you are running at around 52 hz. As the generator loads, the rpm will drop down. A frequency meter would be great to use here, as a too low rpm could burn out electrical motors and other equipment that you are using.

Neutral lite not working


Check the wire going to the transmission neutral safety switch, should be located on top of trans with a two wire connector, make sure both wires are secured to the switch. It is possible that the switch itself is faulty or that the indicator bulb is faulty. To test the switch you will need a volt/ohm meter. Set the meter to volts on a scale that will register 12 volts. Connect the positive probe to one side of the switch, the negative probe to ground. With transmission in neutral and ignition on, the meter should register voltage on either side of the switch. If it does, the indicator bulb may be the culprit. If it does not register voltage, the switch itself is probably the issue.

My ex1000 does not put out any voltage. the winding seems good and i think the condenser seems good. what can i check next? i'm not sure how to test the regulator.


A real common problem is that the neutral has come loose. If this is the case you can test 110 volt between hot abd the generator case, but it will read nothing between hot and neutral.

Wired 3 prong power cord as directed in the owners manual and the dryer shocks me. if i try to put the flex tube exhaust on it sparks


You have one of the hot legs hooked to ground. Each leg should be 110. Get a meter and check your recepticle maybe someone wired it wrong. L1=110 L2=110 & a ground (green wire)
(spade) (spade) (round or D shape)
