SOURCE: generator starts but gives no 220 volt electric

This is a frequency issue 50 hertz for Europe, 60 hertz in US. It's speed related. Faster RPM for 60 Hz

Preglow diesel


The glowplug is designed to heat the diesel fuel prior to cranking. Typically you energize the glow plug for 10-30 seconds then hit the starter. If the battery is weak or it is very cold, you may have to run the glow plug a little longer.

Generator wont start up unless i spray starter fluid into it


This sounds like a dirty carbureator. Just bad enough that it won't start cold.

Need adjustment procedure for a Generac Centurion generator, carb and regulator under full load


Before you adjust anything, suggest you verify gas line for proper pressure and importantly volume. Pressure for gas should be 5 to 7 inches and propane 11 to 14 inches W.C. Also make sure the line to the generator is sized properly and the gas meter is a high volume unit (if NG). 90% we find the problem with generator sunder load that otherwise are fine are fuel related. Good luck.

I HAVE A POWERMATE 5000 THAT SHUTS DOWN UNDER LARGE LOAD . I THINK I NEED AN IDLE CONTROL MODULE.THERE IS A 2 WIRE MODULE IN THE START CKT. #21009XA IS THIS IT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE .


Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck

I have a G-235 generator that has a computerized starting system. As soon as I start it, it revs up really high without any electrical draw on the generator instead of idling. Can you give me some...


Your generator should be running @ 1800 rpm if its diesel . I have a 40 kw diesel generator and it starts up and runs a full 1800 rpm with no load . Thats how there designed because they have a 4 pole alternator. Hope this helps.

Black max 7kw generator high voltage output


Those voltage readings MAY be normal.

The AC waveform may cause your meter to read inaccurately. You would need to use a TRUE RMS meter to accurately read the voltage.

The siple meters actually read the AVERAGE voltage and then are calibrated to mulltiply it by the "form factor" for a sine wave. OFTEN these generators don't produce a clean sine wave. A square-ish wave will read higher on the garden variety meters.

Compare the brightness of a lamp comparing to when run on your utility.

The frequency depends on engine speed ... yours is running a bit fast...check it under at least half load and if off, adjust the govenor slightly.

Yamaha 6500 watt diesel runs but usually shuts


First thing to monitor is the fuel solenoid power. See if it is the thing that goess away to cause shutdown.

Tracing this back there is only a few things that control this: The battery, the low oil shutdown switch, and the run switch, and associated wiring.

If I were to ventture a guess, I would put money on the low oil shutdown switch.

My "KDE19STA3" Kipor generator keeps showing fault "L&H Freq.What could be responsible and what can i do? It shuts down about 30seconds after dispalying the fault.


this is telling you that the power frequency is above or below the safe limit and so shuts down.
do not run a load but
press the function button and hold then switch on but dont start keep holding until ph2 or similar is displayed then start read the frequency and adjust the engine speed until it reads correct then try will full load and adjust accordingly 1 or 2 hz either way will be ok
