I have a UST Model GG 1200 portable generator that I manage to get AC side working and need figure out if wiring for the bridge rectifier is right to get the DC side working. I have not been able to find wiring diagram to match colorcoded wiring with right connection on rectifier.

Check your circuit breakers to see if they are tripped or damaged. Then take a look in the end of alternator / generator at the field windings. Check for damage to the brushes, as well as the diode for continuity in 1 direction only. Look for damaged capacitor regulator. Replace as needed.

5 Ohms at the rotor.
Disconnect all the stator wires and measure each one to ground, it should read opened.
Before disconnecting wires, mark which are hot and which are neutral. Measure between the hot neutral wires and some should read at least 0.5 ohms. You should have T1 and T2 reading 0.5 and T3 and T4 reading 0.5. T1 and T3 should read opened, T1 to T4 should read opened. Also, T2 to T3 should be opened and T2 to T4 opened.

SOURCE: Same Problem, diodes fell out of bridge rectifier assembly

pulling to many amps,diodes could not handle amps so they failed.unit should have kicked its breaker before the diodes burned out.most units have their own breaker to protect the system.I would replace the control board first see how unit reacts,probly fine,if not the you go to next step.

Wiring rectifier correctly?

You are discussing a bridge rectifier, the + connector is directly opposite the negative connector, the remaining two connection points are the AC side of the rectifier + AC

Replace a rectifier on an old honda CB?

Thanks for the video!I would expect you to have gotten a detailed instruction sheet, unless maybe this is not a correct replacement part.

The distributor should be able to help you I would think. You may consider returning it if they won't or if you find out it's not the right part for you.

I did a non-OEM replacement & upgrade on a 1972 Honda CB350K3, and I used a full-wave bridge rectifier that I bought at my local Radio Shack.

You can get one like the NTE53016 (200V 40A) for under $5 via Radio Shack here.

You would ideally need to refer to the wiring diagram in your bike's service manual to be sure you get it connected correctly.
GENERALLY, but not always, positive is red, and negative is black.
One easy way to find ground is by measuring between the wire under test and the frame or negative lead of the battery.

You may have to cut wires, and either solder it in directly or attach new connectors.

Any full-wave bridge rectifier has two AC inputs, which are interchangeable with each other. They go to your generator's output.

And you will have a positive output and a negative output, usually at opposite corners from each other.

Here is a schematic for a bridge rectifier:

The bridge will be marked, and typically the positive and negative are on opposite corners, and the other two corners are the AC inputs:

Generator is not converting over from 110 to 12 volts, why not?Need a wiring diagram for the convertor box also.

You did not mention your model number, however most generators do not have the 12v charging option. Those that do like yours generally use a seperate winding producing about 14volts ac which is passed thru a full wave bridge rectifier. This rectifier us usually mounted inside the panel usually against metal to absorb heat (gets hot while in use). Look for (about one inch square) rectifier and test with meter. Replacement can be of the Radio Shack variety. Good Luck

Hi I have an eagle power generator (E65DRE) and it will not generate power. All the coils and components are alright. Do I have to (excite) the generator after it has been sitting for a while? Has any one...

Yes, that's exactly the issue. You should run it once a month to avoid this. Generators can't sit for a while or they will loose the charge that excites the coils for producing power
