There are several componants that need to be checked. you will need to know how to use a volt ohm meter to check the generating parts. there should be a rectifier and capacitor to check. then you need to check the field for a beak in the wire or if it is grounded. then you need to check the armature for a break in the wire. some armatures have diodes in the wiring and those need to be checked. then you need to check the outlet itself and the breaker. there are a lot of things to check.

How to flash a generator


Get two short extension cords and cut the FEMALE end off each one. Strip back the insulation on that end. Connect the two green wires to each other, and connect the two white wires to each other.

Connect one black wire to a light switch, and connect the other black wire to a 20W appliance-type incandescent light bulb. Also run one short black wire (from a cut-off end) from the second terminal on the light bulb to the second terminal on the switch, like so:

plug -- black -- switch -- black -- bulb -- black -- plug
plug -- white ----------------------------------- white -- plug
plug -- green ---------------------------------- green -- plug

Turn the switch to the OFF position.
Start the generator. Plug one plug from your new rig into an outlet on the generator. Plug the other plug from your new rig into a wall outlet supplying 120V. With the generator running, turn the switch to the ON position.

The bulb should flash for a short while, then become steady. When it's steady, that side of the generator is flashed. Repeat for the other side of the generator if it makes 240V.

Wall light switch timer inline with Extension cord GE 15313


Black to black (hot), Green to green (ground) and the only one left is of course white to blue. The (neutral) white wire can be many different flavors (blue, red, orange, brown, etc.).

If the outlet your plugging into (or controlled by the service panel breaker) is 15 Amps use a minimum of 14 gage wire (or 12 gage is even better), if its a 20 Amp outlet use 12 gage wires (or 10 gage). Don't use a 16 or 18 gage wire because it may get hot and start a fire because its undersize for the Amps.

What is the proper oil and quantity used for a Kawasaki GE5000 AS generator


Can I just point out how NO ONE WHO ANSWERED paid attention to the fact that this question is about A KAWASAKI GENERATOR!? NOT A MOTORCYCLE!! Also, the filler cap will be on the lower region of the generator, with the image of an oil can on it, much resembling the oil filler cap on almost all engines, but smaller. I also though am wondering the proper viscosity and quantity thereof, and these "answers" were FAR from helpful...

the generator will need to be wired into your panel box, it is required by law to be done by a licensed electrician as it requires a safety switch to be installed. Now if you just want to run a extension cord inside you will need to physically plug into that extension cord. Hope this helps Tim
