In checking my manuals their is a rectifier that controls the 12 volt side this can be bad even though it is for the 12 volts some times the gen needs a back pulse witch acts like a exciter that kick the power in you can replace this part i do not have the part number i'm sorry but you can get them from electronics stores the part will be black 1x1x3/8 inch with a mounting hole in the center with 4 wire studs replace and try this first if the issue is not solved then the inverter unis is bad unfortunately this is a solid state sealed unit encased in a hard gel that hole unit will need to be replaced in order to cure your issue i hope this helps

Yamaha 2400IS Generator goes to overload when ie: 240 volt plugged in, or 700 watt angle grinder plugged in.


No idea but somebody else will probably come along with a better idea then mine, seems a lot of these generators have this thing installed on them (Has $25 hard start kit). Not sure what it does or how it works. Strangely enough you said you use it for 240 volt. Looked at the picture and didn't see a 240 volt connection.
If you are using the what look like the 120 volt circuits you can't over load the unit. Maximum current draw will cause it to go into protection mode and shut down the power load. The following is an exert from the owners manual which I got from Yamaha's site. Link at the end of this post.

Hope this helps

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light
1
comes on when an over-
load of a connected electrical device is detected, the
inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage
rises. The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping
power generation in order to protect the generator and
any connected electric devices. The AC pilot light
(green) will go off and the overload indicator light (red)
will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are found,
remove.
4. After checking, restart the engine.

Acer Aspire 5732Z won't turn on - the light comes on for a few seconds and then turns off - whilst the light is on the disk drive will open - the screen doesn't show anything


Could be bad ram,hard drive or possibly a bad display panel or video card.Try using different ram and removing the hard drive then try it.Also,connect it to an external display and see if it shows video or not.If after trying these things it still isn't showing let me know and i'll try to help more.

Motor runs for a few seconds than cuts out. No cooling


The startup capacitor is weak and that makes the overload switch kick in. You can get a 1/4 hp to 1/3 hp 3 in 1 hard start relay to fix that from graingers, or 1stsourceparts. EZ instructions.

the problem is probably one of the battery cables. check for looseness and corrosion. especially at the positive battery connection where the two cables are stacked.
