SOURCE: Honda EU3000i is rated to put out 15A but won't

If you attempt to use a 15 amp generator to power a 15 amp appliance you will have a big problem. Always plan to use no more than 80% of any power supply. You are currently trying to use the absolute maximum power this generator can supply, and it's probabally not rated for that load at continious use. Get a larger generator, or , a very sharp axe.

I hope this information was useful for you.

SOURCE: What to do if engine oil drain bolt lost its

Typically , the threads in the crankcase are what get stripped out. Find a dealer that has oversize drain bolts and have them tap the drain hole in the crankcase out to the next size bolt. That is the best fix for a stripped drain bolt hole. Always be careful, when changing your oil , to only tight the filter and the drain bolt (with soft aluminum sealing washer) enough to seal the oil in . Over tightening will only make the next oil change harder with the possibility of this happening again.

SOURCE: I have a King

Plug a known working lamp into the power socket to verify that power is there. This unit should be used on a 20 ampere circuit and use a heavy 12 gauge extension cord if required. When the motor runs, it also drives the pump. The pump could be in poor condition or the piston may be passing hydraulic fluid by it. Service of these units should be left to an experienced hydraulic mechanic who will have the necessary pressure gauges and other specific tools. If you just obtained this splitter, take it back for warranty service or replacement. Hydraulic service is not cheap! Hope this helps!

Just got a log splitter cantget started motor running it moved and blew fuse

Hi, not much info to go on here, but;

have you ensured that your outlet automatic fuse (if applicable) will handle the current of the electric motor? Check ratings. If motor rating is close to automatic fuse limits, you will need a "slow" type auto fuse or use a larger capasity outlet. This the first thing to check before looking further at the splitter itself, assuming that it is the fuse of your outlet that you blew?.

Splitter (2 years old) motor won't shut off.

First of all, I hate to, but have to ask, have you verified oil level is up to proper level? Have you checked power at directional solenoid when handle is moved to different directions, as well as released? Obviously when handle is in stop position, there shouldn't be power to motor in either direction. I can't see exact model, or design obviously,but that would be a good place to start.
