You probably will need to replace the switch if it flashed over. I would disconnect it and document the exact connections before as there are usually a bunch of wires to the switch. Test the switch with an ohmmeter.

The flashover MAY have discharged the magnetic field of the rotor and you may have to "flash the field" to restore it. Google "flashing field" as there are a lot of methods.

Worst case is if the unit is a brushless generator and the flash over in the switch shorted the rotating diodes on the rotor. That will require servicing of the generator part of the unit to replace the diode modules.

Power Mate 1,850 watt. What is the run time?


what is meant by the run time
an 1850 watt unit will run indefinitely if the out put is around 1750 watts but probably 5 minutes at 1850 watts as that is the max wattage for surge start ups ( electric motors switching on as in fridge compressors, drills, compressors)
if you are running it at around 900 watts constant then a tank(20 ltrs) of fuel will probably last 8 hours

Wolf 5000kva generator


Locate where the choke lever is for your generator (under the petrol tank), you ought to notice a star headed shaped screw connected to the governor shaft (if you bend and look closely further beyond the choke lever; still under the petrol tank) which is linked to the carburettor housing/assembly. You need to increase/turn clockwise (using a star screwdriver) on this screw.

Your generator engine sound will change/high a bit because the engine speed will increase.

Reconnect your 1800w chop saw (load) and see if your generator can "effortlessly" accommodate it without shutting down otherwise, increae the turns on this adjustment screw attached to the governor shaft till your generator operates/stabilizes with the load (1800w) connected

How can I shut my Honda eu1000i off from inside the cabin?


You should not have to cut any wires to install a remote kill switch. Most honda engines have an oil alert what will cut ignition if oil level is low. The switch actually shorts the itnition to ground just like the on / kill switch. Just unplug oil alert wire from harness and add a homemade connector with second lead and connect another wire to ground/frame of generator engine. When you short these two wires together it should kill engine. Solder these two wires to a female connector (Radio Shack) and just leave inside generator when you want remote switch. Attach switch to leads of desired length of male connector to mate with female connector at generator. Good Luck.

Ihave a g900 clarke generator that runs perfect,smells of petrol


Hi i have the same unit, i believe that this is just after fumes that actually smell very much like petrol. As this happens to mine as well and the cap is a very tight seal. Its very much like the smell of an old petrol lawn mower.

Do you know which way round the 240v plugs go.... for instance, which pin is positive (live) and which pin is ment to be negitive (neutral).

As you can put the plug in either way it just seems wrong??
