SOURCE: dewalt 6000 generator won't accelerate when using

Okay, I assume that you are referring the economy mode / idle control feature of the generator.

When this is turned on, the engine should run at a slower speed, until a load is detected, then the engine should speed up very quickly. Turning this feature off should result in the engine speeding up quickly as well.

Normally, this is done using a solenoid that is connected to the governor arm. When idle control is requested (run slower), the solenoid engages, and pulls the governor arm in a way so that the throttle is closed. When idle control is disabled (or load detected), then the solenoid sits unpowered, and governor arm is allowed to react normally with its spring tension, and increase engine speed.

Sometimes, a bunch of grit can accumulate in the solenoid body / assembly. Remove the assembly from governor arm, and the generator should run at full speed. After cleaning, replace solenoid, and test. if stil failing, make sure solenoid works by applying 12 volts (usually) to it, to see if it kicks. If it does, look for break in wiring, or at control board.

Good luck.

Testimonial: "Thank you. After attempting what you suggested, we discovered the governor arm was bent just enough to not let the idle control do its job. rus"

There can be several causes for this symptom. Does the outlet have a breaker or "switch" that is tripped? If this is a GFI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlet, first disconnect any cord or equipment plugged into the outlet, then press the "reset" button in the middle of the receptacle. The GFI's should not/will not reset with anything plugged in. (If they are working correctly.) More specific information needed if this does not take care of the problem. There are numerous other things which could be causing this problem, loose conections, bad generator, broken or damaged wires on the electrical system, inverter problems, etc. Refer to your owners manual if at all possible, take a look here at this link if you don't have a copy.<<< >>>>
