Question about Northstar Generator 9 Hp, 5500 Watt, Gasoline
Have a portacable generator. model BS1550 w Runs good but no power to plugs. circuit breakers are not poping out could they be bad.
Breakers could be bad, but no power to all the plugs, including the 240vac plug indicates something else going on. Either residual magnetism has been lost (has it been a while since it been ran?) and needs to be flashed, capacitor or diodes in regulator are bad, or there has been damage to the rotor or stator. There could also be a problem with the brushes on the rotor as well.
Also, if engine is turning too slow, the alternator may not kick in as well. Make sure that you are turning either 1800 or 3600 RPM, though it is a little hard to do this without electrical output. You might try playing with the governor while a lamp with a sacrificial incandescent bulb is in it. If the engine speeds up, and the bulb lights, then governor needs to be adjusted.
