It probably has lost all residual magnetic field from the rotor.

You may need to "flash" the field to restore operation.

Search Google for instructions. Sometimes others have found that plugging in an electric drill that does NOT have a throtling trigger and spinning it while connected to the generator will get the generation started again. There are other methods as well.

Miller trailblazer 275 stalls after about two hours of welding.....


there is a voltage regulator directly above the electric fuel pump on this welder, make sure the three connectors are making good contact, there are three wires attached to it, the center conductor is either violet or blue, if the spade terminals are not making proper contact your machine will shut down as you state
you may also have a "sticking" or faulty fuel stop solenoid
if after you remove and check the connectors at the voltage regulator, the problem persists, locate the local Kohler dealer, your engine has a 3 year warranty for parts and labor

I have a Lincoln Pro Core 100 wire feed welding machine; it is (5) years old. I use the machine often. A year ago I built a 5' X 20" barbeque pit out of pipe and attached a 2' X 2' X 4' smoker to it...


Hi:

There is nothing wrong with your machine. The Pro-core100 is a 20% duty cycle machine; meaning: that will work for 2 straight minutes of welding and then needs 8 minutes to cool down.

Just allow the machine to cool down, turn it off and start again after the 8 minute cooling process.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks.

My Yamaha Ef2400iS inverter shuts off when I use my 3/8th electric drill. This problem started last fall. I could use the drill and portable saw, not at the same time, since the inverter was new three...


yes, the problem is that electronic/electrical components age with use. especially voltage regulators and switching transistors. as they age they can no longer sustain the current you are demandiing from the unit. the units are designed to run in the middle zone, not at full maximum load all the time, if you do that you will weat it out quicker. Always buy a power supply that is double your intended wattage and it will last many years. Hope this answers your question

Miller welders are great. I've been around them a long time as an electrician in the mines years ago. They make a 3 phase model and a motor gen type too. They are both good welders in my opinion.

Long storeage of troybuilt gen


i have had my generator for 6 years. i use fuel stabilizer and do as you did in shutting it down. I do not drain my fuel but it doesnt hurt. I would question putting anything in the engine that could in time cause problems. I use synthetic oil, this should coat all internal parts well enough to not need extra oil. I do start the engine a few times a year and let it run 5 mins. or so. I live in SW La so having a generator that doesnt work during hurricane season is not a good idea. The steps you are taking should keep your engine fine. It is a good idea to run it and use the power every now and then. This keeps the magnets in the generator in good shape.

Its the watts you plug in too like ither 30 watts vs 50 watts. 30 watts will cause your wires to get hot in the unit. just pull down your breaker box and look at those white ground wires.
