    True, The frequency was easy to change. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful at finding any schematics or drawings on the voltage regulator and didn't want to just start digging around. I am assuming that it is a very simple circuit.

The speed will change the 'frequency' too. You need to make sure you still have 60 Hz. You may have need a voltage regulator adjustment, not a speed adjustment.

    Yes, I hear you. Just wanted to let you know that it's very important to run @ 60 Hz. As well as 120 volts.

I changed everything on a 2007 Chevy uplander the camshaft position sensor And the purged sensor And the throttle body and still the check engine light and the reduce engine power came back on


Reduced Engine Power Mode When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
?€¢
Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.


?€¢
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.


?€¢
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.


?€¢
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:


-
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF


-
Ignore the accelerator pedal input


?€¢
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
Did you have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble code's related to the reduced engine power ?
All so has APP sensor gas pedal !
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The accelerator pedal contains 2 individual accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors within the assembly. The APP sensors 1 and 2 are potentiometer type sensors each with 3 circuits:
?€¢
A 5-volt reference circuit


?€¢
A low reference circuit


?€¢
A signal circuit

The APP sensors are used to determine the pedal angle. The engine control module (ECM) provides each APP sensor a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors provide the ECM with signal voltage proportional to the pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage at rest position is less than 1 volt and increases to more than 4 volts as the pedal is actuated. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage at rest position is less than 0.6 volt and increases to more than 2 volts as the pedal is actuated.
Your best bet is take your vehicle to the dealer !

Reduce 67 volts to 48 volts dc


Just google for voltage regulator 48 V and you have lots of solutions. Be aware of the current going through a regulator. To reduce almost 20 volts each ampere will generate 20 Watts of heat, unless you use a switching regulator.

Blower speeds 1, 2 & 3 don't work on my 2002 grand am GT. Cruise control kicks our now and then for no given reason. Any thoughts?


Usually if you loose all the blower speeds except for high then the blower motor speed resistor is to blame. This device reduces the voltage that is supplied to the blower motor so you get the slower speed of 1,2, and 3 but is bypassed for the full voltage direct powered high speed which is why the high speed will continue to work.

2006 B4 Subaru Legacy A?C blower motor runs at high speed all the time when switched on


blower motors are regulated by group of resistors that cause the voltage to reduce at different amounts resulting in high to low speeds on the fan. When this fails the motors goes to high speed all the time. These are not expensive or hard to replace. Usually a plug connector and a couple of screws and around $25 will do it. These are located under the dash in the main body of the heater as they rely on air blowing over them to reduce the heat created by the resistance. the side opposite the connector will look like sifferent sizes of wire wound much like a spring to create resistance and slow the blower motor down. Once you have this out you can go to a parts store and ask for a replacement one. good luck

2006 harley dyna charging at low speed, not at high rpms


This used to be a common problem back in the days of generators but I've not heard of this since Harley went to the alternator systems in 1970. It is unusual to say the least.

The first thing I'd do is have my battery tested. This is simply good procedure anytime you are experiencing a charging system problem.

Next, check the output of your alternator. To do this, you'll need a DVOM, digital volt ohm meter. Unplug the voltage regular at the front of your engine case close to the oil filter. Now, put your DVOM into "Voltage", "AC", Range 50 volts or better. Now, with the engine running, put one lead from the meter to one of the pins in the plug in the engine case. Put the other lead in the other pin. Rev the engine up to about 2000-2500 RPM. You should read at least 30 Volts AC. You must have the meter in the AC positon because an alternator puts out alternating current. Your regulator converts it to Direct Current voltage for the charging the battery and reduces the voltage. If you are reading thirty volts or better, I would suspect the Voltage Regulator is your problem.

I have a 39 ford 6 volt battery operated car. I


you need a voltage doubler circuit which feeds from your 6V DC system and converts it to AC and steps it up and converts it to 12V DC. This device might be difficult to find. OR use a 6Vdc power inverter and just use a 120volt AC fan if much easier to source out in your area.
You might want to try a 12VDC high speed fan and see if the 50% reduced speed is already sufficient for you.

A/c inside fan motor


You have a single speed motor and attempting to reduce the speed by lowering the voltage will shorten its life considerably. The best way would be to locate a multispeed motor and get a switch to select the speeds. Not a economical means of accomplishing your desired result. Cooling the air beyond the condensation point would produce ice and lower the capacity to dehumidify.

240v electric motor


Reducing the voltage is what you want to do -- this will effectively reduce the speed, without creating an annoying hum.

That said -- 110v is too low. Start higher. Half the voltage doesn't equal half the speed.
