Will not start.
Running it only one time Is the problem.

RECOMENDATION:
-Remove soak and clean high-speed jet in Carburetor and clean float valve in Carburetor.

-Do not use fuel with ethanol.

-Use a fuel inhibitor with your fuel. this will keep the fuel from braking down.

-When your done running the Gen-Set for the season fill tank and treat it with a fuel stabiliser and turn off fuel valve and let the gen set run out of fuel. This will ensure that fuel is not going to evaporate in the carburetor.

Hope this tip helps.

I have a 16kW Generac Guardian Generator with a 200 amp house service RTS panel (installed 2007). Last night the power went out and the generator started but the unit did not switch to use generator


The problem with the repair service is another matter. Emergency generator and it's switch gear are there for emergency purposes. It has to be exercised periodically. The switch gear should have a toggle switch to simulate a power outage. the switch cuts power to the sensor sensing power from the utility company. This tells the switch gear that power was lost, start the engine and switch over to generator power. Run for a period where engine reached running temperature and switch back to stand by to shut down. Do this periodically, and be grateful the event was not a disaster. Think of your back up electrical system as the spare tire of your car and similar equipment and enjoy your investment. Good people brings you happiness, bad people brings you experience !.

I have a 2003 dodge durango, it has 119,000 miles and I noticed that when I stop at a signal light or just stop vehicle, sometimes it just cuts off. I purchased vehicle used.


Greetings:

What engine does your Durango have? Your tune up interval for spark plugs is every 30K. When was the last time that was done?

The 2003 was the last year of the Generation 1 Durango, and is considered the best of the 98-03 years.

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

That sux! Thats NOT acceptable in any way... Take it back and demand it gets repaired.. With devices such as this it is not the simple passing of time that ages it, but the actual POWER ON time... & Yes if Overloaded it should simply have "Tripped" a breaker or the like.

I purchased an acer aspire one with qvc last year in dec the


Hello, Adonis.

Depending on its use, a battery lasting 2.5 hours after one year is not terrible. Over time, the battery loses power.

If the battery were totally dead in less that one year, I'd suggest contacting Acer, since it's still under warranty.

Hope this helps.

Coleman 6200 won't work


Hi Judy,
Generators DO last a good long time for the money, but they have to be both used and maintained in order to keep working properly. What has most likely happened is that you didn't use the generator at all for a year, after it sat on your dealers shelf for a few months not being used, and so the tiny bit of magnetism it uses to "kickstart" the process of making electricity has worn down. The good news is that this is easy for a generator shop to repair, no parts involved and the minimum labor that they charge. They need to do something called flashing the field of the generator. What they can't do is get Coleman to pay for it since they aren't around anymore, go ahead try the 800 number (waits patiently).

Be nice to the poor generator techs at the shop.
