Generators don't idle. They aim for maximum revs until the voltage regulator has enough voltage then it reduces the throttle.

Why does my miller bobcat welder generator not stay at an idle when swithed to low idle, insted it goes back and forth to high then to low idle?


The unit may need recalibrating the idle/run setting. Instructions found in manual at 8-6 (subaru engine) and 9-5 (kohler). Idle speed around 2200rpm. Simple screw adjustment. PDF manual here :- http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o4434l_mil.pdf

Why will my miller 250 will not idle down


There should be a selector switch where you start the machine. If you have this switch selected to idle and it still doesn't idle down after a few seconds of unloading the generator then you probably have a short in the switch tricking the generator into thinking it's under a load. Any spike in amperage or load will cause the generator to idle up.

Ranger8+ diesel will not weld or generate.


Check for proper placement of all springs & linkage on carb / throttle. One of those springs and/or linkage pieces is largely responsible for idling UP the engine so that it will be able to operate the welder & generator. If it won't idle up, it won't work right.

My coleman generator idle does not go to low idle when there is load on the generator it has idle control.


I could not understand, it doesn't go in low idle when load is connected or no?

It should go to low speed idle with load under 20 - 30 W.

Generator doesn't excite with small power tools.


Somewhere on the Generator is an Idle Control switch, turning this to the off position will stop the generator idling down in the first place. You'll need to do this to use tools that don't draw enough current to trip the idle control system into revving the engine.
It may say just how much current you have to draw in the manual (hint, hint).

Engine missing


Get a DMM that can measure frequency (Hz), then check that with no load and the idle control set to off the frequency is 61.5 Hz - If it isn't you have to troubleshoot why it isn't and correct it.
You should also check the idle control mechanism if there is one on the generator, with it on the generator should start up at regular speed, then slow to idle speed, then rev back up to regular speed when you draw current from the generator. To check it use the DMM to measure the speed at startup ( should be 61.5 Hz), when it idles down (about 37 Hz), when you're drawing power from any other outlet ( pretty close to 60 Hz). If the generator has idled down and you shut off the idle control it should rev back up immediately.

Please rank my solution,
