Your gen. is a 2000 wt max 1000wt running out put. Means it will start your jackhammer but will not maintain the wattage to run it long. You are using the max it has to put out. So let me try to explain - 2000 watt max output works like this - We will use a fan as an example. A fan sitting still and not turning takes more amperage/watts to start. that is called lock rotor amps. So lets say the fan is a 1000w to run. 2000w start the fan turning then it takes 1000w to keep it turning. Your gen. can start the fan but not keep it running it is using all it has to put out, now if that fan only uses say 750 w running watts you have some head room to keep it running with out things getting hot. Hope this is clear as mud.

My schwinn stealth 1000 shows I have power but when I twist my throttle nothing happens?


Melted means overload, blown means a short, possible causes-bad connection on battery leads, motor brushes worn, shorted wiring in motor or bad bearing, brake dragging on wheel, motor controller going bad. Check it with wheels off the ground , try to isolate what is binding , causing overload on the motor.

How do you stop generator from stalling under load


As you have not provided me with the information I requested I'm going to have to take a few guesses here Bob. You could be overloading the generator. You can't run a 10,000 BTU air conditioner off of a 1000 watt generator. You need to look at your load, (what you are trying to power), and determine how much power it needs. Almost everything has a tag somewhere on the device. Most don't give watt requirements. But they do tell you, how many amps the device pulls, as well as the voltage the device needs. So you need to do some math here. Volts X Amps = Watts. So if we have a 120 volt device, that pulls 15 amps, we need 1800 watts to power it. But it gets a little more tricky than that. Motors are often rated at what they pull while they are running! But it can take two or three times more power to get them started. Example... A motor rated at 10 amps, using 120 volts will be 120 X 10 = 1200 watts. But it could take 2400-3600 watts to get it running. So in theory a 3000 watt generator may die before it can start that load. Heating elements are also power hungry! Let's say you have a small 800 watt generator, and your just trying to run a simple coffee pot! Well the heating element in a typical coffee pot pulls 1000-1500 watts. A hair dryer or microwave oven rated at 1000 watts, is the power they produce, not the power they consume! So a 1000 watt microwave may pull 1600 watts of power to run. Most non US generators are highly over rated as well. I certainly would not trust a Harbor Freight 3000 watt generator to actually put out 3000 watts of power. Not that they are bad units, I would expect their numbers to be under PERFECT conditions. Temperature, humidity and altitude also play a part! Your 3000 watt generator is going to put out more power at 50 degrees, at sea level, than it is at 7000 ft in the mountains at 100 degrees. So my "guess" Bob, is that your just asking more from the generator than it can produce. Picking out a generator is not as easy as it looks. "Hey that one is $1000 and this one is $300! They both make power! What's the difference". The difference is what do you need to run! "Heck I'll just get that 50,000 watt unit"! Yeah you can do that too, but you will never use that much power, and you will burn way more fuel than you need to. My other "guess" is that you have a governor issue on the engine. As load increases the gov will throw more throttle to the motor. My generator has an option to run full speed or on the gov. So it will idle and burn less fuel while I am hammering in a nail, then go to full power when I trigger a saw connected to it. Lot's of factors involved here Bob.

M/n cpi 1575 I've had my inverter installed in my


it indicates an overload situation
not enough information provided as to voltage supplied to the inverter and the voltage of the grinder
examples are for 110 volts ac with a current draw of 4.2 amps the wattage is 462 watts or for 240 v ac with 4.2 amps the wattage is 1008 watts assuming that it is 240 volts and the inverter has a maximum ate of 1000 watts then it is overloaded and circuit protection is cutting in
check the wattage of the inverter and the wattage of the ac units you use and if there is not a 25% difference in favour of the inverter then it is an overload situation

Hi, When my GE jvm1650bb microwave starts, it begins to work and then blows the fuse in the house. Does this every time, the circut is not overloaded. Is their a part that went bad that I can replace?


Try your oven on another circuit in your house. It is curious that your oven doesn't blow its own fuse before the house one. If it doesn't blow the fuse in the "new" circuit, check to see what is really on the kitchen circuit. It might, in fact, be overloaded. Good luck.
