Troubleshooting generators

If this unit dies under load conditions, decrease your load and try it again.
If this happens under no-load conditions, check your fuel supply. Start with the filters, then check pressure and flow.

Wolf 5000kva generator

Locate where the choke lever is for your generator (under the petrol tank), you ought to notice a star headed shaped screw connected to the governor shaft (if you bend and look closely further beyond the choke lever; still under the petrol tank) which is linked to the carburettor housing/assembly. You need to increase/turn clockwise (using a star screwdriver) on this screw.

Your generator engine sound will change/high a bit because the engine speed will increase.

Reconnect your 1800w chop saw (load) and see if your generator can "effortlessly" accommodate it without shutting down otherwise, increae the turns on this adjustment screw attached to the governor shaft till your generator operates/stabilizes with the load (1800w) connected

My generator doesn't idle, it serges continuasly. How do I adjust the govener and idel stop screw?

Don't fiddle with it. Put a load on it and see what happens. If it still surges, put a bigger load on it. If it still surges, seek professional repair for this product. You can do more damage to both the generator and what ever you poser if you do fiddle with it.

I have a 5.5 Vertical Briggs and Stratton about 6 years old that is mounted on a woodsplitter. This year it started dieing under load. It's driving a brand new 2 stage 11 gallon pump because I thought that...

If the generator was used during these 6 years continuously on full or near full load, it may have loosed compression (and derated load).

If you can measure the pump current and compare with the rated of the generator it should be less than the half of the rated to run properly in continuous mode. If it is greater than 75% it may be more than the possible for this generator.

Nevertheless the new fine oil, the overheating or lowering of the oil level during operation may be the reason for stopping.

I have a Generac XL4000. It rill start but not run right.

If the area you live in has alcohol added to their unleaded gas, then you will probably need to rekit the carbuerator. Also check the spark arrestor for plugging up. Try to find a non alcohol, off road unleaded gas for your generator.

Hello. I'm sure that you've checked your air filter, so check the pinhole vent on the fuel filler cap. Next time it dies, immediately crack the cap and listen for the sucking sound of air rushing into the tank. If you hear this, clean the cap!

Coleman generator OHV3000

The carburetor is probably clogged up. Mix a bottle of carburetor cleaner with the gas to see if that would help. Also check/replace the fuel filter.
