Eu6500is generator trips to red unload when ac is on


Air conditioner compressors require a greater amount of electricity (measured in both volts and amps, but the amps are what is causing the overload). You will need a larger generator to run your AC. You might be able to run a smaller AC unit, but always check the Amps required and compare that to the Amps the circuit breaker on the generator is rated for.

My generator is an onan 4000... It was starting and running fine and then it wouldn't start anymore. It would try and try. Then I realized the ground wire going from the generator to the power converter...


It will not start because the generator is overloaded before it is even started. I suspect there is a short circuit in the power converter. Disconnect the converter and see if the engine will start then. If there is serious overload when you reconnect, you will know where the problem is. It will probably trip a breaker or blow a fuse then. If you narrow the problem to the converter, write back and I can help you with this too.

I have a Honda eu2000i generator to run a Husky TAW-1524p air compressor. Initial start/run is fine but subsequent compressor restarts as demand for air is required, put the generator into overload....


If your mechanical enough to figure out how to lower the air pressure switch on the compressor it would help with start up loads. For instances if your pressure switch is set for 75 psi. Lower this to 60 psi. or as low as you can and still operate equipment. Otherwise depending what horsepower and voltage {guessing 110 vac) the motor is, I would try an Hard start capacitor for refrigerators or air conditioners. They are rated by horsepower and have a built in relay that kicks it off automatically after starting . You can find these at any appliance or a/c & heating supply house.

Generator will not stay running


The toggle switch automatically resets all faults when it is turned to the off position. I would turn the toggle switch off, turn off the breaker on the generator and then turn off all the loads in the house except a few lights. Turn the generator breaker back on, then turn the toggle switch back to automatic. If it starts and stays running, you were overloading the generator. Turn on other loads slowly and keep track of what is on so you don't overload it again. If it still does not stay on, you may have a problem with the panel. Let me know what happens.

Generator was running just fine. it's a bsv5500-w overloaded the unit by mistake. tested with meter and found 86 volts. shut unit down and now only puts out 5 volts on each leg


are you sure the breaker didnt trip when overloaded,as this is what the breaker is for and would explain the ghost voltage of only 5 volts at the outlet

No 240V


check for a circuit breaker that is tripped, as well as a switch that enables 240volt (at the cost of 120 volt current being cut in half.). The switch puts the alternator windings in parallel (120volt full power) or series (240 volt @ half 120volt current).

Generator won't start


Some of the generator has a control or tripping device like over speed, over voltage, overload or overcurrent or other trip device, try to find & reset it.
