Check relay to make sure it hasn't overheated. Check power to compressor to see if it is getting any power.

Husky 5000 watt generator quit producing power.


You could have a bad circuit breaker button. Replace that and see what happens.

Generator runs great but produces no power


On Thursday last week I had 220 amp outlet being used and a 110 amp outlet being and overloaded the generator. It turned out to be the reset breakers failed to trip and blew the capacitor. The reset breakers I would suggest replacement after 7 years very easy to do on a 5500 Valsi generator 2010 model still running and now producing electric. And of course use only regular gas non Ethanol.

7500 champion generator used breakers were tripped they wouldnt reset but ran great good voltage for about 3 weeks now it still runs great but the voltage meter bounces on 0 wont power nothing


If it has sat, it may have lost it's rotor residual magnetism.
Disconnect the rotor field wires at the AVR or on the exciter/brushes. Note they are polaroty sensitive. Connect a 12V battery to F+ and F- (note polarity) and momentarilly power from the battery for a few seconds. DO NOT forget to disconnect the rotor/exciter field wires first or the voltage regulator will be damaged.

If it hasn't sat check voltage regulator, rotor resistance, and stator resistance, and for shorts to ground.

I have a troybilt 7000 gas generator that trips the main output breaker when under a load after 5 minutes


1. Make sure that the generator limit is not being exceeded.
2. Try checking and raising the rpm. If the engine can not sustain the load from the generator, it can/will trip the breaker.
3. If the carb is dirty or the engine runs poorly it can trip the breaker. Tune up the engine, clean the carb, make carb adjustments to correct substandard running conditions.

DO YOU RCOMMEND A TIME LIMIT FOR THE GENERATOR TO RUN IN CASE OF POWER OUTAGE ??


If the generator is installed correctly and it is running within it's continuous rated capacity, it can run indefinitely. The main thing is operating temperature. Just like a car engine, once it comes up to normal operating temperature it's cooling system should be able to keep it from overheating. But unlike a car, where the manufacturer has complete control over the installation, a standby generator could possibly be installed in a way that inhibits proper cooling. However, this is very unlikely if the unit was professionally installed. And even if it did overheat, the unit should be able to trip it's own breakers or shut itself down anyway. The only other consideration is fuel consumption. A standby generator is not an economical way to get your electricity. If it runs for several days or weeks you are going to notice the fuel bill. I hope you found this helpful.

Honda ems 4000 generator starts and runs great, but no power


At the controller, you need to see if it is actually sending electricity out of the Generator/Alternator, have a look where the leads from the power making unit mates, (Think of it as a motor in reverse) onto the board. There should be an AC Voltage there, then, work back, or out from there, trace the Voltage until it stops, thats the problem... Check the Breaker isn't tripped or faulty too.

Generator will start and run easy, then just die.


Check for loose wiring connections, especially at the run or kill switch. Generators vibrate a lot so it could be as simple as something loose.

Gererator stops producing power


This sounds like a "flying open" in the rotor. Over time a small part of the wire that winds around the rotor has gotten cracked just enough to open up when it's warm and being pulled on by the force of the rotor spinning. To test this further, take the wires off the brushes and connect an ohm meter across them then run the generator, if you see the ohm meter indicate an open circuit you've found the problem. This can be repaired but it means removing the rotor and finding the weak spot in the winding. You could replace the rotor for a couple of hundred dollars or get a new generator.

Carl
