My answer:

You will need to contact Powermate directly (see below), and give themthe CORRECT model # info that you have there on that Genset.

Unfortunately what you posted above doesn't help out at all as there isNO model # for reference. Certain models are no longer available asthey have been discontinued and only by contacting Powermate directlywill you get the proper Operators Manual.

There should be no charge for this and most likely it will be a PDF download sent by their service dept.

The model # should be found either on the engine decal plate or else on the generator head assy or it's power panel.

Please post me a reply as to finding this solution being the bestresolve to your missing Operators Manual problem by following thecompany references & links below. Also please rate mytroubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,

Frank

SOURCE: Generator doesn't excite with small power tools.

Somewhere on the Generator is an Idle Control switch, turning this to the off position will stop the generator idling down in the first place. You'll need to do this to use tools that don't draw enough current to trip the idle control system into revving the engine.
It may say just how much current you have to draw in the manual (hint, hint).

SOURCE: Generator with Briggs & Stratton,no gas is getting in carburetor

The needle valve may be stuck which would not let gas into the carb. I don;t think rebuild kits are too expensive. Pull the carb and take it to a lawnmower repair shop and they should have the parts. Before that though pull the bowl and make sure it has gas in it. If no then remove the fuel line and make sure gas flows from it. If no then could be the fuel shutoff valve is not operating properly or junk in the gas tank is obstructing the line.

SOURCE: 6000w gas generator putting out low voltage

Your voltage regulator is at fault. Make sure you replace it with the exact same brand name and serial number or you will burn out the generator.Thank you, Dana

Bought new. No problems until two weeks ago. Now has 252 HRS. Starts all the time, runs 10 seconds then shuts down. I have removed wire an oil pressure switch. no help. Found connector off on switch p


It shuts down because it's not making power. You are probably getting a failure to start error code. If it doesn't make power it doesn
t know its running. Rotor has lost residual magnetism to start the voltage regulator. Replace the voltage regulator. The new one is designed to overcome this.

I have a briggs and stratton 030547 3500 Watt generator and the engine has locked up, what can i do to fix this issue??


Remove the spark plug and crank the engine . Usually it has been flooded or shut while in full choke mode. This causes the condition you describe. If that fails you have internal issues and low oil was the culprit.

Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 6200 Watt Portable Generator voltage adjust


Usually the cause of slightly low voltage like this is that the engine is not running at full operating RPM. Find the high speed adjusting screw on the govenor linkage and adjust the engine RPM until the output is 220V - 240V

sounds more like a fuel problem not oil being spilled on it but check the oil level some have a low oil shut off see if you can keep it running spraying carb cleaner in the air filter that will tell you if it is a fuel problem more so a fuel problem if you left fuel in it for more than 30 days

This is absolutely not a gas psi problem. You haven't mentioned if the unit was connected to load or not. That FC5 fault is low frequency and could very well be caused by an overload condition. Take an amperage reading while the problem is occurring. If it is not overloaded then it seems like you may have a problem with your governor control circuit assuming the engine is running ok otherwise. Some basic checks include checking mag p/u voltage (they are generally located directly over the flywheel on aircooled engines and are difficult to see so try to following wiring) while cranking / running generally it should be over 1.5 vdc. Also check for mechanical binding. If the unit never makes 60 hz. also try adjusting the govenor although If the unit did make good frequency at some point you may be having a problem with the controller. If the unit is hunting dramatically then try adjusting whats called your frequency or governor gain setting to a point that's stable.

Briggs & Stratton 12KW Model 040229 LPG Generator. 96 Volts @ the 120 Volts outlet, When I turn the house 2 Ton AC voltage increase to 106 Volts.


Can you manually adjust the voltage on the generator without load?? If you have 120/240 60hz output on it and you are not overloading the unit (amperage), then it may be as simple as adjusting whats called your gain setting for your voltage regulator. Obviously you are seeing what happens when it is set too low. Trying raising that setting until it becomes unstable then back it off. Unstable meaning voltage starts jumping all over.

Briggs and stratton 8000 watts generator, the output of the 120 is only 102. How do I adjust the output?


Voltage is adjusted by increasing rpm of engine. Use meter with Hz setting and try to adjust to 60 cycles and check voltage to be at about 115-120. If engine is turning 3600rpm/60 cycles and voltage is very low, then problem is most likely with brushes/ commutator rings, or voltage regulator. Some voltage regulators have an adjustment screw to bring voltage up/down (adjust to proper rpm/cycles first). Good luck

Briggs and stratton generator keeps throwing the circuit breaker


Power tools CAN draw heavy loads if the voltage or frequency is off. Both of those CAN be a fault of the generator.

Check the frequency by plugging in a clock with a moving second hand and time it for 10 minutes against a quartz clock. ALSO do a voltage check with another voltmeter.

The 5500 Watt generator should hold 40 amps. Power tools with induction motors like some table saws take a large starting load near this value AND would be sensitive to low voltage AND especially low frequency, both of which will cause much higher current draw.

One MIGHT have to resort to put an oscilloscope on the output to make sure the waveform of the AC output is normal..

My propane generator engine has apark and gas


For a quick test.

Check engine oil.

Remove wire from low oil sensor and see if it starts every time.

If that works change oil and replace low oil sensor.

Hope this tip helps to solve your problem.
