Generator Not Producing Power - Engine Speed & Governor Control


There are 4 requirements that have to be met before a generator is able to produce power. Due to number of questions that have been asked, a Coleman PowerMate 1500-1850 with a Briggs and Stratton Engine will be used here.

1) The Engine has to be turning at correct speed
2) Field Winding (Rotor) on the alternator must be energized
3) AC Winding (Stator) must create a voltage in presence of magnetic field
4) Output passes through Safety Devices before it reaches an outlet.

This Tip will cover Engine Speed and Governor Control.

Sounds simple, but it actually goes beyond just turning. Most consumer generators are designed for an engine that turns 3600RPM for 60Hz operation. For every 600 RPM, the frequency changes by 1 Hz. Normal frequency range on a generator is about 63 (at no load) to 57 (Full Load). At half load, you should be pretty close to 60 Hz. Some generators will turn at 1800 RPM, and usually have two or more cylinders. Each 1Hz deviation is a 300 RPM change in engine speed

If you find that your engine is not turning as fast as it should, or is turning too fast, you can adjust its speed using the governor. Be careful in this area though! If you are adjusting faster, and you make too much an adjustment, the engine may over speed (red line) and be damaged. Always be ready to shut down the engine in case something goes wrong.

General Instructions on How to Adjust Speed:

It will almost be required that you have a digital multimeter that is capable of measuring frequency. You can use a AC powered clock, and compare the minute intervals with another clock, but the adjustment process will take a few hours.

Start your generator, let it run for a few minutes to warm up. Place your meter leads into the outlets, and record the frequency. This will be your No Load Frequency prior to any adjustments. Also record the voltage.

Note that depending on your meter, your voltage will likely read about 132 volts AC. If your meter is of the dollar store variety, the voltage may be reading higher (170) due to noise being present in the waveform. Don't worry about this - yet.

Now that the engine is warmed up, and your meter is indicating that the frequency is less than or higher than 63Hz, it is time to adjust the governor. Each engine will have its own method, you may have to find a owner's manual or service manual.

Start by removing any access panels that you need in order to reach the governor assembly. This will be the arm that is attached to the throttle on the carburetor via springs and rods. Look carefully near the base of the governor arm, and you will see a spring that is attached to it, and the other end is attached to a tab. The purpose of this spring is to put tension onto the governor, as well as to allow adjustment. Inverter based generators will usually have an electronic governor. The throttle is actuated by a small servo motor which is driven by the inverter / controller. These types of governors are typically not adjustable beyond replacing mechanical linkage that is worn.

Using a pair of needle nose pliers, bend the tab slightly one direction or the other (toward governor, or away from governor). Note the change in frequency. The target here, without a load, is going to be 63Hz. Once you hit this target (frequency average is 63), take a look at the voltage. It should be near 132 volts AC. If it is much higher, then lower the voltage by bending the tab slightly. Be aware that this will also lower the frequency as well.

Now that the unloaded frequency is set, connect a load that is approximate half of the generator continuous rating. For an 1800 watt generator, the continuous load is 1500 watts. Half would be 750 watts. A couple of Halogen lights will work, as well a space heater that is set on Low. Your frequency should be very close to 60Hz now. Voltage will likely be around 125 volts. Adjust the governor very slightly to reach these numbers. Your half load frequency is now set.

If you are using a space heater for a load, turn it on (1500 watts), and note the frequency reading. Also note the voltage rating as well. Frequency will likely have dropped down to about 57 or 58. This is normal. Voltage should be down around 110 to 115. Don't make any adjustments as most generators are due not carry full loads for extended amounts of time.

Turn the heater back to low or fan only, and let it cool for a few minutes before turning it off. Unplug the heater, and check the frequency and voltage without a load being on the generator. Again, frequency with no load should be about 63Hz, voltage about 132. A little bit of difference is acceptable here. And now you are done.

If you are not able to obtain the numbers mentioned, then there are other issues going on. Especially if voltage is out of range. See other Tips.

If you intend to use the generator primarily with a certain load (heater, well pump, charger, etc) you can optimize performance of that load by setting the generator frequency with that load, and only that load connected. Just keep in mind that when you add additional loads, your settings may not be adequate.

How to adjust governor on a Tecumseh hmsk80?


Static Governor Adjust.

With the engine stopped, loosen the screw holding the
governor clamp on the governor lever. Rotate the clamp in
a direction that will force the throttle shaft open and allow
the governor follower arm to rest on the governor spool.
Push the governor lever connected to the throttle to the
wide open throttle position. Hold the lever and clamp in
this position while tightening the screw.

My 1811 cub cadet only idles at one speed, mid range


The correct way to adjust the governor, if this is the problem, is to loosen the set screw at the bottom, then adjust to an idle by rotating the linkage arm , it should try to self center. There may be a problem internal with either a broken arm or Governor thrust pinion.

Kohler V-Twin (624 cc) RPM on the engine does not stay stable , It will raise and lower the RPM in any Throttle Range. Could the Governor be going bad???


Try a static governor adjustment first as it simply be out adjustment.

Static Adjustment Procedure
Make this adjustment whenever governor arm is
loosened or removed from cross shaft. Adjust as follows:
1. Make sure throttle linkage is connected to governor
arm and throttle lever on carburetor.
2. Loosen nut holding governor lever to cross shaft.
3. Move governor lever toward carburetor as far as it
will go (wide open throttle) and hold in this position.
4. Insert a long thin rod or tool into hole on cross shaft
and rotate shaft clockwise (viewed from end) as far
as it will turn, then torque nut to 6.8 N·m (60 in. lb.).

Engine speed surges up and down


Keith:

First check for the obvious... fresh fuel? clean air filter? carburetor mounting bolts/nuts tight? cylinder head bolts tight? crank case bolts/nuts tight?

Now to adjust the governor:
Find where the governor shaft comes out of the engine... loosen the nut and bolt on the governor arm clamp (where the governor arm clamps to the governor shaft). Gently pull the governor arm back until it stops, Gently turn the governor shaft the same way (some have a slot for a screwdriver or a hex-head for a nut driver to hold the shaft at it's closed position) as you pull the governor arm. Both the arm and the shaft must be at their full stop of travel while you tighten the governor arm clamp. It may take another person to lend a hand to keep the governor arm at the closed position while you tighten the clamp.

Adjust governor not working properly


Before the governor is touched for adjustment make sure the unit is tuned up, and carb correctly adjusted. Messing with the governor without will compound your problem

Hello, my Briggs & Stratton generator, PP5000, Intec, 8 hp, Model 202412, type 0167E1, has lower power output, 180 Volts in stead of 220-230 Volts. Any idea where I should look ? Engine is 8 years...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Usually when you have a lower voltage output that is yet above 150 VAC the problem is as simple as the engine is no longer running at full speed. This could be caused by binding carb or governor linkages but more often than not the Governor adjustment screw has backed off over time causing the engine to gradually slow so the output voltage drops. The user does not notice it so much until the output drops more than 15% and you notice dim lights... slower running equipment etc.

Look for a circular plate / governor speed plate near the base of the governor lever but off to one side that has a spring that attaches to the governor lower end of the governor. There should be a screw with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise to increase engine speed. (You may have to barely loosen the pivot nut on the governor speed control adjustment plate to make the speed adjustment.... tighten when done with speed adjusment) Watch your output voltage and adjust the voltage to 225 VAC with NO LOAD. The voltage will drop as loads are added. Make sure to tighten the lock nut on the adjusting screw or in a matter of an hour you will have low voltage again from engine speed dropping. What ever you do.... DO NOT adjust the governor arm base attach point where it attaches to the engine.

Just so you know a weakened governor spring can cause the speed drop also. If the speed keeps dropping with extended use, you may have to change the spring that goes from the lower end of the governor arm to the governor speed adjustment plate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Low voltage


Most generators use a flyball type governor within the engine to control rpm; also there is a voltage regulator that tries to maintain voltage at about 115v. The voltage regulator varies the voltage to the armature increasing /adjusting magnetic force. Use a meter with htz or freq setting to adjust engine governor to 60 cycles. When the generator is producing 60 cycles, the engine should be turning 3600 rpm, max power range. At 3600 rpm the voltage should be 115 to 120 volts. Loading the generator will cause governor to try to maintain 3600 rpm. Check engine manual for proper adjustment of gonvernor and linkage. The governor mech should last the life of the engine, however governor system does wear out. Expensive repair. enjoy
