I have a predator 4000/3200 generator that worked great for a few months but now the lights flicker and go out and shuts off the power. What could be wrong?

I have checked wiring only.

SOURCE: Generator dose not produce power,just stop working.

Check the rectifier board installed under gen cover that powers the brushes. This board has a capacitor about 1 inch long and 3/4 inch dia. If the capacitor looks swollen or burned replace board or carefully remove cap and replace with similar. You can use a larger capacitor with same rating, just tie cap to rear cover. Also check the condition of the brushes. Parts are not too expensive. Check with jacksmallengines on the web for parts. enjoy

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

From where can I get an Portable power generator?

There are several available options where you can get a portable generator to avoid the inconvenience during a power cut. I was also suffering a lot as my most of the devices got expired due to the above reason. I want to get rid of all these inconveniences completely, therefore, had a predator 8750 generator review and thus selected a best one for myself. Their services are great and the inverters are light-weight and portable at the same time.

I need a battery for a predator portable generator

Go to WalMart and look at their EverStart line of batteries for motorcycles and ATV's. I have the 8750/7000 watt predator and the EverStart ES9BS works great and fits well on the holder. It comes with the acid and you will need to add the acid and fully charge the battery before use.;

Predator 500cc.i was out trail riding and it started to bog down alittle, shut it off and when i went to start it wouldnt turn over. my lights were flickering

First thing to check would be the battery connections. Make sure the positive and negative cables are tight. I've chased problems on several atvs, especially Predators, to find out the battery cables were loose. They will make the atv cut out or bog down while riding and make lights flicker. Let me know if you need anything else, Daniel.

03 predator 500 electrical problem

Let the entire electrical system dry out. A warm garage would help. You might use an air compressor to help blow out any water near electric connectors etc. Then try running it again.
