Barry,

The 12v system does not go through the AVR. It most likely is the Battery Charging Rectifier has failed. This controls the voltage from the 12v feed from the alternator and charges the battery.

1) Follow the wiring from the 12v socket/connectors until you come to a Block rectifier. It will be held on by a bolt in the center and have 4 wires connected to it. If you look at the pins you will see one is seated at a different angle to the others. Test the feed to this pin, you should get a result of between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.
If you are not getting these results then the Block rectifier has blown and will need replacing. http://www.generatorguru.com/rectifier-98406168/

2) If all is testing fine above, then you will need to test the Battery Charging Rectifier as you have an Electric Start and Battery on your unit. This is a metal block located on the back of the engine, next to the starter motor and it has fins running across it. ( to see an example of this part look up your generator on this page http://www.generatorguru.com/all-power/) Again this should be giving you between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

3) Next,check the voltage going into the Battery Charging Rectifier from the alternator. You should get between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

For replacement parts please see our web page. You will need the full model number to do this.:

    Hi thanks for the info. but it does not have a starter or a bridge rectifier it as 3 plugs coming from the stator one to the avr the 2 in to the panel i disconnected the 2 gray wire plug and the 120 volt works but not the 12 volt could it be the 12 volt breaker gone bad

What 12volt load do you have connected to the 12volt connector? You may be overloading the circuit.

    Ahh, OK. The diode rectifier is most likely shorted internally.

    you were right the rectifier was in the eletrical panel and not on the generator head

    How many volts is 1200 watts


    Watts to volts doesn't translate as they are different units to measure things. Watts is a power measurement while volts is what is trickling through the cable. You could have 12 volts at 6000 watts or 240 volts and 5 watts, depends on usage. If it's for a car audio amp, it will be generally 12 volts to power it which at 1200 watts means it will run at around 100 amps current according to ohmslawcalculator.com

    How many 5 watt outside lights can you power with a 20 amp breaker?


    Volts x amps= watts.
    20 amp breaker x 125 volts = 2500 watts.
    However, electrician use the 80% rule, so multiply 2500 x 80% = 2000 watts.
    So if you have 20 amp breaker, and 12 gauge wire, and 20 amp switch, and distance is less than 150 feet, then watt load is 2000 watts or 400 5-watt bulbs.
    Keep in mind that most switches are 15 amp, and not 20 amp.
    Recalculate for 15 amp switch = 1875 watts x 80% = 1500 watts or 300 5-watt bulbs.

    I have a briggs and stratton 8500/5500 generator which I am using to power an air conditioner on a camper trailer. I just recently started having a problem where the one circuit breaker keeps tripping when...


    Hello, First figure out what the load per leg is on your generator. Are you using the 240 Volts because this is two 120 AC volts legs and they are 120 degrees out of phase with each other.

    You will need to figure what the power factor is for each phase on this generator. To figure the power/wattage by using ohm's law. Voltage times Current will give you Watts. Example: If the generator is generator 240 volts the maximum current available is about 23 amps. The maximum current for 120 volts will 46 amps. Therefore, the maximum current per 120 volt circuit is 23 amps for one circuit and 23 amps for the second 120 circuit..

    I would try replacing the circuit breaker with the same amperage breaker. Also, watch what the generator load is per circuit. You can install current meter for each circuit. This will give a good indication of which circuit is pulling more load than the other circuit. GB...stewbison

    My generator turns on but, supply's no power?


    You must check:
    1. Are your breakers ON?
    2. Measure the voltage on generator terminals.
    3. If the voltage is less than 20 V AC, you should check the excitation field, rings and brushes, AVR - rectifier, cables and fuses.
    4. If every thing is OK you may need to recharge the DC field with a short connection of "+" and "-" of a 12 V battery to respective field terminals when the engine is running.
    5. If the AC voltage raises for a second and drops when you disconnect the battery - the excitation circuit is bad.

    it has been through an overload (hence the protection light) and needs its breaker to be reset (look for a poped out button and push it back in) or it needs a new fuse (replace ONLY WITH THE EXACT SAME MODEL OF FUSE or it will either blow too early or too late (or not at all) when there is a surge.
