My diesel kipor 5kva generator wont shut by key ,


Caution
the manufacture is recommending a cool down period of about 3 minutes to prevent overheating of the combustion chamber. the following is from the manufacture on shut down procedure.

3.2.8Check Stopping of Generating Set
(1)Disconnect the load from the generating set.
(2)Turn off the air switch of the generating set.
(3)Set the speed lever at RUN position, run the generating set without load for about 3 minutes. Do not stop the engine suddenly, otherwise the temperature will increase abnormally, the nozzle will blocked and the generating set will be damaged.
Press down the stop lever. Concerning the electric starter, turn the key to OFF. Turn the fuel **** lever to S position.
Pull out the recoil starter handle until you feel resistance (at this position, both intake/exhaust valve are closed.) and leave the handle in this position. This prevents the engine from rust.
If the engine keep on running even after the speed lever is placed at the STOP position, either turn the fuel **** to the CLOSE position or loosen the nut of high pressure fuel pipe on the pump side to stop the engine.
Do not stop the engine with the decompression lever.
Do not stop the generating set with load. Stop it after the load removed.

I have a Briggs and Stratton home stand by generator 7000 it starts in manual but wont start in auto engine just cranks but wont start


make sure gas valve is open, and run switch is ON. I'm not a fan of B&S engines. I have a Generac generator with NO problems.Pull start the unit and let run for 5 mins. Turn off. Now try the electric start.If it does not start, you have an elctical problem when using starter. Make sure battery is fully charged before starting. Hope it helps.

Why wont it produce electricity?


It lost it's magnetic field. Try putting 12 volts across the brushes just for a second or two. Do not use a car storage battery. Sometimes it may work using a 9 volt battery.

Good luck,

Engine runs flat out wont idle


Is it a petrol generator? If it is, then you have nothing to worry about. I have one too and the moment I start it, the engine runs, yes, flat out. There is no idle settings on this type of engine that I know of. These generators are meant to have a fixed revolutions to keep up with the power load of electricity being generated. I am sure they're factory set to run that way. If they idle then you wont get much of electricity at that low revolutions. I think it is normal. If not, you can always try to speak with the store person where you purchased the unit, or you can just ask them a question or two. I am sure they will tell you that the over-revving is normal for these portable generators.

Generator was running fine and then the electrical output quit while the engine was running.


Sounds like you did overload the capacity of the generator. What has happened is that the generator was happily running away producing the electricity required for approximately an hour and then an appliance such as an air conditioner, furnace, refrigerator, water heater, or similar large amperage draw fixture decided it was time to kick on for its cycle, or perhaps two or three of them kicked on at the same time, thereby raising the amperage requirement beyond the capability of the generator. All heavy duty appliances run at a given amperage but when they kick on for a cycle they draw almost 50 percent or more amps. Generators rated at 6000 amps or less will not power an entire home or business. When using this size of generator, disable some of your electrical items in the home by unplugging or switching off, and only connect the most important items needed for emergency use. A 3500 watt generator will only run a few lights and a television, plus only one appliance. This means that you could plug in the refrigerator and run it until it has gotten cold enough, then unplug it & connect the furnace or air conditioner or water heater so that they can do there job. Eventually you will be able to rotate through each appliance in turn, and hope the power will return soon. Your generator will likely have blown a capacitor, resistor or some similar repairable item. Some good quality generators will have an overload breaker installed, that trips before doing any damage and all that is needed is to find it and reset it, in order to continue using the generator.

My onan generator voltage is around 127 to 129 volts but wont run a space heater what is the problem i changed the fuel filters


First thing you need to do is turn down the engine speed and get the voltage dow to max 120v, Then chk the heater. Excessive voltage will ruin appliances. .

Wont start has spark , new fuel, new oil.


Is the spark plug black?
It won't run well with a carbonized plug.

Is the main jet in the carb plugged?
If the plug is dry after trying to start it.....your fuel is not getting into the engine and most likely a plugged carb jet..
Also.....Is the fuel switch working...is it in run position?

If the generator has sat for a while with fuel left in the carb/fuel tank.......the most common problem is a plugged varnished dirty carburetor in need of a good cleaning.
Always shut the fuel off and let the carb run dry (run until the engine stops)before storing.
Add fuel stabilizer to any remaining fuel or drain the tank before storing.

Engine runs but won't generate any electricity


Sometimes the generator loses the magnetic field that allows it to produce power. Do a Google search on "flashing a generator field". There are many ways to do it, but I would recommend doing some reading before trying it. Your "dead" generator could produce hazardous voltage once it comes back to life.

Also, before trying any of this, make sure the circuit breakers on the generator (if equipped) are not tripped.

Good luck and be careful!
