Anyone know how to fault find a 1968 C6tfl powered petbow generator 3 phase 187.5kva that only generates electricity when it feels like it!!??? - power across 2 phases drops to between 80-245 instead of...

Did you exercise the generator or did you only start it during a power outage. If you don't put a load on the generator, when you need it you will get the problems that you have. Most generators this size have a resistive load bank that puts a load on the generator to exercise it. If you don't have a load bank to exercise the generator, turn your main off and let the generator take the load on at least once a month. This may solve your problems.

Generator suddenly wont stay running

take all the load from it

start it does it run??

if it does then the gen is prob aok
your taking too much load when it starts

if this isnt the case

check for fuel flow and also air flow
other than this its an electrical system and detection problem

Champion 71000i generator overloads

Can you provide more detail on this? Such as under what conditions it overloads, and how much power you're drawing off of it? Keep in mind that generators have two ratings: Sustained Load and Peak Load. Mine, for example, can handle a sustained load of 1,750 watts, and can handle short-term peak loads of 2,000 watts. Note also that if you're running a microwave, they take a lot. So does anything with a motor in it (refrigerator, etc) on initial start up. Once you've added up all your loads, adjust to where you're within your generator's sustained load and you should be fine.

Troubleshooting generators

If this unit dies under load conditions, decrease your load and try it again.
If this happens under no-load conditions, check your fuel supply. Start with the filters, then check pressure and flow.

How many appliances can u run off a coleman 5000 generator

It depends on the appliance wattage and type, IE inductive loads like motors, HVAC compressors etc are harder on it. You didn't mention the 120V btu's but if the unit is running correctly and has no or light other loads on it, it should start it. be aware that it takes about 6 times the current to start the HVAC that it does to run it, so how much other loads are on the generator (base load) is critical

Honda Powerboss Generator. The engine starts & runs great but generator does not provide power to the outlets. Problem is intermitten but I can tell when it is not going to work by taking the load...

problem with voltage regulator/ generator as when this functions properly it will raise engine speed hence giving out the power out put required

The generator kicked the breaker of and was smoking and smelled like electrical

What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.

I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.

Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.

Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

When i start the onan 5500 it takes 4 or 5 times then when it does start it runs low then high rpm then low again where do i start

Adjust the carberator. You have to do this while the engine is running and it usually takes a straight slot screwdriver. You can turn a spring loaded screw to adjust fast or slow which ever is needed.

Problem with Compaq UPS T1000h

I had a problem like this one, check the voltage from the generator , if the output from the generator is to high (over 240 Volts european standard voltage), the voltage protection (VDR resistors ) will brake the fuse to protect your UPS.
and also check the frequency of the generator, it has to be very stabile around 50HZ (european standard frequency)
