Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator


no
ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

I have a 4500 watt generac lp rv generator. When I run it, it sounds like it's flooding. I have to have the gas valve almost closed for it to run right. What's wrong with it?


Sounds like the valves in the Carburetor are stuck open, or the choke is stuck closed. either way the Carburetor will need to be removed and serviced.

Crafsman 2400 watt generator star ok but only run for 45 sec.& it won't star again the motor is a briggs & stratton 5.0hp


I have a Craftsman Snow Blower with a Briggs & Stratton Engine. I had the same problem. I searched online and read a little bit about this run and stop problem. One solution was to put something over a piece of metal that separates the hot engine part from the other part of the other side of the engine. I used a piece of heat resistant cloth from Lowes in the plumping area where the torches are. It fit and worked. Engine keeps running. I ran it for over an hour last spring prior to storing it.

My neighbor gave me a 10 year old 5000 watt Coleman with a 10hp Briggs that was not running. It would run on starter fluid so I focused on a fuel problem. New fuel, fuel filter and oil. Dissassembled the...


That's interesting that you bypassed the fuel pump after noticing that the carburetor was below the tank, not needing a fuel pump to start the engine.

Maybe they put a fuel pump in to ensure that the float bowl valve is not the only thing preventing gas from overflowing into the carburetor when stored for a long period of time.

I would put the pump in if that's the way they originally designed the fuel supply for the engine, just to be safe.

Good luck on this repair.

Just up graded from a homelite 4400 to a craftsman 5600 generator 5600 does not have enough output as did the 4400 why


Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't. Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.
Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.
By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total resistive output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.
For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.
You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

Clarke/Honda 700 watt generator ronning slow, cleaned carb,air & fuel filter, spark plug, noticed air coming from air filter, is it a sticking valve problem


Either the intake valve is not sealing like it should, or the rings are worn, and crankcase vent is dumping the pressure into the carburetor.
