Onan 7000 generator runs but does not produce electric to rv


First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

Coleman powermate generator runs with no power


If we assume for the moment, that the internals of the generator are all ok. This problem is usually caused by not running the unit on load for a long time, a year for instance. During this time the residual magnetism in the field coils will slowly decay. When the unit is running the field coils control the power generated by the main windings. The higher the excitation voltage in the field coils, the higher the voltage generated by the main windings. The field coils are controlled by their magnets which, once a voltage has been generated, they will then self excite themselves.
However, if all of the magnetism has decayed then the field coils cannot generated because they have no excitation to start them off.
What you need to do is to find the field coil windings and while the unit is running with a load plugged in to it, you need to flash a voltage across the field coils.this will excite the field coils, part of that is used to do whats called self-excitation, honest...it is.
If you do this then a 12 volt car battery is a sensible thing to use for a power supply. But, as soon as the field coils start to self-excite then that voltage will increase far beyond 12 vo9lts. That is why you need a good size load connected, As the unit starts to generate then that load will alert you to remove the temporary supply, if you leave it connected the battery acid would rapidly boil and it can split the battery cases. That is why it's called 'flashing' it up. Once generating it wants leaving for a good hour,
If that does not produce results then the fault is deeper and requires testing by a qualified engineer.

I need a carb for model pm52-2000 carb is broken by one of bolts thats screws it to generator head


I also have a PM52-2000. Since I keep the generator outside, I have ruined more than one carburetor over the years by letting water get into it. I have found perfectly good replacement carburetors for it on eBay by simply searching for Tecumseh 5 HP Carburetor. Today, I searched on eBay and found 142 of them, all new, some costing as little as $18.00. I just finished installing a carb I bought off eBay last year. It fit perfectly, adjusted easily, and runs perfectly.

UST GAS GENENTOR TG3000 WE DO NOT GET ELEC FROM THIS WE REPLACED FUSE AND STILL NOTHING SEEMS LIKE IT RUNNING GOOD WHAT CAN BE THE PROB


If it has been sitting for a while the electrical field may need to be flashed. Check falshing a generator and follow the directions. This should excite the generator and start generating again.

I am interested in a generator that can light a 3-bedroom hse and a chauff cutter


Your cutter machine may use more power than your whole house depending on the size of motor. A one horsepower motor 115v will use about 3000 watts to start and about 1000watts to run. To estimate how much power you need, add up all the watts that you will use at home and add to that estimated wattage of the cutter motor (motor will use 3x rated wattage to start plus loss of power thru the extension cord). Buy a generator that will give you needed power and still have a 25 percent reserve. If you need 2000 watts on a continued basis, the 2800 watt may be good, however I would be more comfortable with a 3500 watt if the price was right because of the cutter machine. I would consider converting the cutter to gas power and buy a smaller generator to save on gas since you will be most likely running the generator far longer to power the house. Good luck

How much gas to oil ratio to run generator or straight gas


Hi,
Check for a crankcase with oil in it on the motor...if you have oil in the motor already then you do not need to mix it in the gas...
I am very sure that you will find this motor does not need the gas mixed...
Run straight gas... usually it is good to run Prem in small motors..
