Check engine speed by the sound...if normal then check AVR card...replace it...
if not normal rase it...

SOURCE: There is absolutely no voltage output. What

My generator has a switch to turn on the output, you must turn it "ON" to get power.

According to this charging system isn't working correctly ! This is a computer controlled charging system .
Principles of Operation
The powertrain control module (PCM) controlled charging system determines the optimal voltage setpoint for the charging system and communicates this information to the voltage regulator. This system is unique in that it has 2 unidirectional communication lines between the PCM and the generator/regulator. Both of these communication lines are pulse-width modulated (PWM). The generator communication (GEN COM) line communicates the desired setpoint from the PCM to the voltage regulator. The generator monitor (GEN MON) line communicates the generator load and error conditions to the PCM. The third pin on the voltage regulator, the A circuit pin, is a dedicated battery voltage sense line.
The charging system voltage is controlled by the PCM. The generator charges the battery and at the same time supplies power for all of the electrical loads that are required. The battery is more effectively charged with a higher voltage when the battery is cold and a lower voltage when the battery is warm. The PCM is able to adjust the charging voltage according to the battery temperature by using a signal from the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. This means the voltage setpoint is calculated by the PCM and communicated to the regulator by a communication link.
The PCM simultaneously controls and monitors the output of the generator. When the current consumption is high or the battery is discharged (the PCM recognizes this and increases the output of the generator to accommodate), the system is also able to increase the idle speed to increase the charge.
To minimize the engine drag when starting the engine, the PCM does not allow the generator to produce any output until the engine has started. The PCM then progressively increases the output of the generator.
The PCM turns the charging system warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminates it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The charging system warning indicator is also illuminated by the PCM whenever the key is ON with the engine OFF.
This is a System 4 charging system, which uses the GEN MON and GEN COM lines to control and monitor the charging system through the PCM. System 4 charging systems are virtually identical in design and therefore, share the same diagnostics. The circuit numbers and colors may be different, but the functions are the same.

Under voltage would be low output voltage from the generator power head. Verify that the motor is funning at full speed to check the output voltage.

Low battery is telling you that the starting battery has low voltage. This could be because the battery is bad or that the alternator is not charging the battery

Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 6200 Watt Portable Generator voltage adjust


Usually the cause of slightly low voltage like this is that the engine is not running at full operating RPM. Find the high speed adjusting screw on the govenor linkage and adjust the engine RPM until the output is 220V - 240V

Low voltage


You have overloaded the generator and have blown a capacitor, resistor or similar item that will only allow half the voltage output to the recepticals. I know I have done this too.

Is it possible to lower the output voltage? My unit is running closer to 127vac?


Hi,
The voltage runs that high when there is no load so that as you load it the voltage will not dip too low...usually the higher voltage will give less trouble then low voltage will.. you also will use less amps. to run anything at a higher voltage... this places less stress on the generator...

I would not mess with it...when it is fully loaded you will be down under 120v

I have a 5700 11 horse, (brushless). the windinds appear to be good,none burnt or open, but I have no output voltage. Any ideas?


Some generators have a wiring harness plug. Unplug harness and test for output there. If no output at harness, look for open circuit breakers and test any capacitors in system wiring. Some brushless systems use capacitors to excite armature. If diodes in armature are faulty there will be no output. Generators output two circuits of 115v each when combined will be about 220. If your generator has two 115v plugs each plug will be on a seperate circuit. To verify condition of stator windings, apply low ac voltage (8 - 12v ac less than one amp) to one of the 115v plugs and you should be able to read same voltage on second plug and double the voltage on the 220v plug. Good luck

Generac generator on auto runs weekly. light green previuosly green. now red. what causes this??


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Your red LED is telling you that it was 1. overloaded. 2. has low voltage 3. overheated or 4. short in the powered circuit.

OVERLOAD LED (red): Lights up if the generator experiences
a load greater than the rated output, low voltage, overheats or
the powered circuit experiences a short. The output is stopped
even though the engine keeps running.

I do not know which of the 4 conditions caused your red light. If you have the read light with no load I would suspect low voltage from the generator / inverter. If it overheated you will also get the Red LED with no load.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Briggs and stratton generator keeps throwing the circuit breaker


Power tools CAN draw heavy loads if the voltage or frequency is off. Both of those CAN be a fault of the generator.

Check the frequency by plugging in a clock with a moving second hand and time it for 10 minutes against a quartz clock. ALSO do a voltage check with another voltmeter.

The 5500 Watt generator should hold 40 amps. Power tools with induction motors like some table saws take a large starting load near this value AND would be sensitive to low voltage AND especially low frequency, both of which will cause much higher current draw.

One MIGHT have to resort to put an oscilloscope on the output to make sure the waveform of the AC output is normal..
