I have a eu3000 overload safety shuts it down at about 1100 watts

I have a eu3000 it has an overload safety shut down on it, and is shutting down at about 1100 watts or 9 amps. It will start and run the a/c, on start up the a/c pulls about 3300 watts and 28 amps then runs at about 1100 watts and 9 amps, and runs for about 10 minutes and shuts down. Any ideas?

Can you verify the amp draw on the output? This gen should handle 25 amps continuous. I wonder if you actually have a bit more that 9 amps? It would be nice to check the frequency and volts too...A Fluke multi-meter can read these values.

    How were you able to obtain the 9 amp value that you mentioned?

    Great! That's valid. Your overload is an invalid shut down. At least it's not a 'current overload is what I mean. In order to diagnose it further, we will need to know from Honda, (or the manual), what does a 'safety overload' consist of. I do not have that information right now. You can call :1-770-497-6400

Onan 4000 Microquiet shuts down after running for 20-30 minutes. If I direct 2 high power (400+ CFM) fans to the underside of it -it will keep running indefinitely.


check the current draw from the machine
being a 4000 watt machine if you are drawing 4000 watts it is overloaded as that is the surge power available not constant power which is around 3500 watts
that would account for the requirement of fans to keep it cool
even if It is not 4000 watt what ever capacity it is it is running in an overload situation

My GE stainless steel 1100 watt microwave starts beeping out of the blue and the display panel shuts off and when I open the door it resets itself and then starts to beep when I close the door again.


Try removing the power cord for about a minute, push all the touch pad 'buttons' and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work it sounds like you may have a bad door interlock switch or a bad PCM .. Good luck !

My microwave came on by itself and will not shut off


Be sure to unplug it ASAP to shut it down. These things are expensive to fix, I'd buy a new one.

My Pc just shut down while i was playing a game. i unplugged my geforce 9600 gt's power and my pc worked again, but without graphics. what is wrong with my graphics card???


The problem that caused the PC to shut off is the GForce graphics card is drawing too much power and the switch mode power supply was overloaded and shut down.
Check the switch mode power supply's wattage, if it is around 300 to 400 watts, it maybe be too low. You most likely need to get a higher wattage switch mode power supply, especially if you added more RAM, disk drives, DVD drives etc. to your PC after the initial purchase of the PC.

Maytag electric dryer keeps shutting off.Dryer gets hot. Repairman replaced the motor but still having the same problem.Could it be a sensor?


Generally if the motor shuts off it is because of the overprotector on the motor opening up to save the motor.When the motor cools down the overload will close and the motor will work again.

If the unit is getting so warm the motor is shutting off check to make sure the rollers are working properly and moving freely.

Microwave shuts down when hot


Most microwaves have a temp sensor or moisture sensor. Maybe your one has gone faulty or the magnetron itself is causing it to shutdown. Get it checked up.

Malibu transformer shuts down early


Well, you're overloading the transformer by 30 watts. It's doing what it's supposed to do when overloaded...shut down. It's the _other_ (works fine) transformer that you should worry about possibly starting a fire, since it's not shutting down when overloaded.

Turns off when i turn it up


Does it power back up after it shuts down, if it does power back up it is unlikely it is an internal fuse, you would need to replace the fuse if that was the issue, could be an amplifier overload, check the demand your speakers require in watts, and be sure the right ohm speakers are being used, many receiver will display "overload protection"and shut down, and some just un-power to prevent a electical short from occuring.
