I get a small electric shock each time i put my hand on the heart rate monitor on the left of the treadmill. Also happens when i h the inclune buttons on the left. Any suggestions?

Hi Pjd

Shocking problem!

Suspect that the treadmill is generating static electricity.

It is building up as you run... via the rubber mat.

Like the comb through the hair picking up tissue paper bits.

This is basically a Van De Graaff Generator.

Try attaching a wire from the machine chassis (metal) to a metal tap at your sink.

Do you still get a shock?

Not sure where you are and what your electric supply is.

I'm in Australia and our AC plugs have a third pin which is connected to our meter box which is then connected to an outside GROUND ROD.

Perhaps the AC power you are using has no ground or only a 2 pin connection. I which case I would add a three wire plug to the treadmill and the ground pin would connect to the treadmill's metal chassis by a screw or bolt.

Anti static spray may also help

I have a three wire cable and a plug to connect to

Can you perhaps copy the connections that are on the female jack on the generator? If not, there should be a diagram with picture on the container the plug came in. Or ... go to a Lowes, Home Depot etc and locate a sample of the plug you have and copy down the diagram. The red and black can be interchanged but the white and green MUST be correct!

Reset overloads if tripped. If this doesn't help, inspect and replace if needed the brushes in the generator. If that doesn't help. Inspect for
loose/broken wires. Last resort is a qualifies generator repair tech.

Where do you remove the Ground Neutral bond on a EU6500is generator? I need to do this to hook it up to a transfer switch as per Service Bulletin #20.

Page 39 of the current owners manual for the both EU6500 and the EM5000 generators indicate that there is not a neutral ground bond on these units.

Per the wiring diagram, the ground pin on the outlets is connected to the frame ground of the generators (on both generators). To have grounded electrical service, a bond wire would connect the generator frame to the ground terminal on the transfer switch. The ground system from the breaker / distribution box (usually to a ground rod) then serves as the electrical ground for the generator, as well as the balance of the rest of the system, satisfying NEC requirements.

See Page 39 in both manuals:
EU6500 EM5000

"The system ground is not connected to the AC neutral
wire. If the generator is tested with a receptacle tester, it will not show the same ground circuit condition as for a home receptacle."

Kohler magnum12 gas generator will not produce electric power

Plug an electric drill into your output power at the generator IF you have a plug at the generator. (Output power CB must be on.) IF not the closest point to the generator and then pull the drill switch and turn the drill in the reverse direction. That will flash the field. 1/2 inch drrill works best but with some effort a heavy duty 3/8 drill will work. Just rotate it quickly... when the generator starts working it will try to yank the drill from your grip so keep that in mind. (Trigger Sw on drill ON)
