You have to have a multimeter and know how to use the ohms scale. Some meters actually have a diode test setting. Do you have a meter? I'd be glad to work you through it...

You can test them with a VOC meter, just do a continuity test. if you read infinity, there no good.

DBSI325 will not put out voltage


Most of the problems like this are due to a failure of retention of the magnetic field to allow it to build up. Search Google for methods to "flash" the field. If you have had an accident of shorting or putting excessive load on the unit, rotating diodes of a brushless generator can be blown. Of the methods of flashing fields of the generators, I have had the most success with the method using TWO light bulbs in series between the utility mains and the generator. PLEASE be careful when doing this or handling electrical equipment where high voltage is present.

What type of oil do i take for a porter cable 5250 watt electric generator?


Your generators take ordinary 10W30 motor oil.
We use these things on the job.
Don't turn engine upside down or on its side to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor

No AC Output after sitting up for 2 years


If the field circuitry is good (winding, diodes, AVR, [rings and brushes if any], try to recharge the field for a few seconds when motor is running, with a 12 V battery "B+" to "F+", "B-" to "F-".

Idle control inop


Check the small relays first, lightly tapping on them wile on may tell you the one that is bad but not all ways , if thats not it,Pull the circuit board and test or have a old tv repairman test the Diode's/resistor's on the board, if you find a bad one and do not know how to read the rating, take a digital close up picture of it and email it to one of many people selling diodes or resistor's on Ebay, buy it , solder it in.
