It's possible yu have a carb problem. The engine speed control should maintain constant rpm. If you add load and the engine can't get enough fuel, it will stall. If you generator sits quite some time idle add sta-bil to the fuel. Clean fuel bowl, needle valve, metering valve to be sure it receives enough fuel. Since it is runing you migh try some carb cleaner, but usually this doesn't work.

What size capacitor do I need for my 5250 power back brushless generator r


Why do you assume you need a new capacitor? Sometimes you may have to re-excite the windings on the generator which is simple and I'd try it first. Take a power drill, plug it into the panel on your generator and turn the chuck on the drill by hand or use another cordless drill to spin the plugged in drill for about 5-10 seconds. Unplug the drill and start your generator. Chances are you'll produce the power you are looking for.

Generator works good but getting little power from outlet


these generators will not run drills or saws or most power tools. It will run a coffee machine, or heat gun,microwave and will charge batterys hope this helps.

Charger died.


It is usually a current limiting resistor anyway... so I would think that about 100 Ohms should be all good, you generally need about 250 - 300mA to charge ya batteries. It is simple Ohms law calculation.

Generator starts with and runs great, but theres no current on my toy hauler


Johnny,

If generators are not used regularly, they need the their magnetic field to be charged (or flashed). This can be done by plugging an electric motor into the socket while the generator is running and spin the motor by hand. The hand-spun motor will push some electric current back into the generator and magnetize it enough to start it.

Look in the manual. There is likely something about field flashing the magnetic field2.gif. The easiest way to do this is to.
1) start the generator
2) plug an electric drill into the generator (without drill bit)
3) make sure drill is set to forward direction (if a reversable drill.
4) pull the trigger on the drill.
5) If the drill does not start, spin the drill's chuck clockwise (When looking down at the chuck from the drill bit end). Spin counter-clockwise if holding it like a pistol and pointing away from yourself.
6) Do this several times (hard) until the the generator will kick in and suddenly make the drill spin at full speed.
Be careful not to drop the drill or poke someone with it as you celebrate success.

No voltage output

3) make sure drill is set to forward direction (if a reversable drill.

Generator runs but can't reset circuit breaker


It probably isn't the circuit breaker. The magnetic field has likely weakened (especially if the generator has not been used in a while). The magnet can be "flashed" by running a current through the generator briefly. The easiest way to do this is to plug in a motor and spin it backwards (by hand) while the generator is running (e.g. an electric drill). The drill acts as a weak generator when you put the energy into it by spinning it.

Too much voltage


i guess,it has something to do with the capacitors / the rectifier or both

I plug a 1/2hp drill and use it I notice if I use anything else it is low of power. I put a meter on one plug and drill on other, and it reads upper 80-95 volts with drill running


Please check the owners manual.and see if the 6250W is surge power or steady state...it is not unusual..for this to occur...possibly the generator needs to be adjusted ( sped up slightly )..do not let the 120 volts output exceed 126 volts...

Broken oil filter bolt


What you need to do depends on where the bolt broke. Is there enough of a stem left to get a pair fo vise grips on it? If so, then go to "Plan A". If not then do "Plan B" etc...
  • "Plan A"...Put some WD40 on the stem and keep the stem damp for an hour or so. Intermittently tap the stem lightly with a plastic screwdriver handle to set up vibrations. Now wipe the stem and break out your Weller soldering gun. Heat the stem with the gun for about 5 minutes. Now put the vise grips on the stem (at a right angle if possible) clamp down tight and see if the stem will screw out. A bit stronger tapping while trying to turn would be good.
  • "Plan B"... Cut off what is left of the stem and grind to a flat surface parallel to the case mounting flange. Center punch the bolt then drill out the center of the bolt. Use a drill bit smaller than the bolt and DRILL CAREFULLY. Drilling at a bad angle can mean drilling into the case. That's a no - no. Use a screw extractor to remove the remnants of the bolt.
  • "Plan C"... Okay, the drill went in at an angle and some of the threads were destroyed or the case got pretty well drilled. Use a tap and die set for re-tapping the old threads back to the original thread. Put in a new bolt and see if the cover plate will seal up when mounted. If so, you are done.
  • "Plan D"... Remove the bolt but leave the cover in place. Now determine if it would work to drill the cover plate and case at the same time then thread the larger case hole for a larger bolt.
  • "Plan E"... So plan "D" is not viable. Would Liquid steel fill the hole such that it could be drilled and tapped?
  • "Plan F"... Take the bike to a machine shop and let them do the bolt removal. I endorse this plan if you lack tools and really don't want to risk doing it yourself.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Broken recoil on 10 briggs the recoil rivets came out of housing


I have had the same problem and use a pop rivet gun with steel rivets when reassembling the housings. Frequently these rivets get loose, & need drilled out & changed. I am assuming that the rivet holes in the housing are not elongated or you might have to drill to the next larger size rivet to install them. Hope this helps you, Rick
