SOURCE: Hi output from generator

I found out that the gasoline motor was turning too fast so I had to turn down the speed of the motor with the adjustment screw.

SOURCE: THE VOLTAGE COMING FROM THE GENERATOR IS NOT

Connect a voltage meter to the 115v plug and measure voltage. If too high, adjust governor spring tension to compensate. Your engine developes max horsepower at about 3600 rpm. At this speed the generator should be producting 115v at 60 cycles. Good holidays

According to this charging system isn't working correctly ! This is a computer controlled charging system .
Principles of Operation
The powertrain control module (PCM) controlled charging system determines the optimal voltage setpoint for the charging system and communicates this information to the voltage regulator. This system is unique in that it has 2 unidirectional communication lines between the PCM and the generator/regulator. Both of these communication lines are pulse-width modulated (PWM). The generator communication (GEN COM) line communicates the desired setpoint from the PCM to the voltage regulator. The generator monitor (GEN MON) line communicates the generator load and error conditions to the PCM. The third pin on the voltage regulator, the A circuit pin, is a dedicated battery voltage sense line.
The charging system voltage is controlled by the PCM. The generator charges the battery and at the same time supplies power for all of the electrical loads that are required. The battery is more effectively charged with a higher voltage when the battery is cold and a lower voltage when the battery is warm. The PCM is able to adjust the charging voltage according to the battery temperature by using a signal from the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. This means the voltage setpoint is calculated by the PCM and communicated to the regulator by a communication link.
The PCM simultaneously controls and monitors the output of the generator. When the current consumption is high or the battery is discharged (the PCM recognizes this and increases the output of the generator to accommodate), the system is also able to increase the idle speed to increase the charge.
To minimize the engine drag when starting the engine, the PCM does not allow the generator to produce any output until the engine has started. The PCM then progressively increases the output of the generator.
The PCM turns the charging system warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminates it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The charging system warning indicator is also illuminated by the PCM whenever the key is ON with the engine OFF.
This is a System 4 charging system, which uses the GEN MON and GEN COM lines to control and monitor the charging system through the PCM. System 4 charging systems are virtually identical in design and therefore, share the same diagnostics. The circuit numbers and colors may be different, but the functions are the same.

Generator runs....No AC power (Sitting watching T V power goes out) No other draws on gen.


If this is a portable generator you are referring to, most have a voltafe regulator. If it goes out the generator will have no output voltage. You can go on line and google the name and serial number of the generator and usually find repair info amd parts.

Generator avr


The AVR automatic voltage regulator normally gets damaged by a short in the rotor, wiring etc. MOST common is shutting the generator down under load and NO NO. The AVR goes wide open to try and maintain voltage on a gen that is stopping, always disconnect loads then shut off

I HAVE A POWERMATE 5000 THAT SHUTS DOWN UNDER LARGE LOAD . I THINK I NEED AN IDLE CONTROL MODULE.THERE IS A 2 WIRE MODULE IN THE START CKT. #21009XA IS THIS IT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE .


Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck

I have a 1962 ironhead sportster thats now 12volt system. magneto and generator,no battery. bosch voltage regulator. i know that the A from gen. goes to D+ on voltregulator,looks l;ike they had the F on...


Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a wiring diagram for a 1965 XLCH which is the same as your bike. But to answer your question directly:

"A" term on the gen. goes to D+ on the reg., red wire
"F" term on the gen. goes to DF on the reg., green wire
"B+" on the reg. is the common output and has two red wires one going to the light switch and one going to the rear brake light switch.
"61" on of reg. goes to ground through a capaciter or condensor. black wire
"D-" on the reg goes directly to ground. black wire

Good Luck

I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!


Excite the genset.

with the gen engine running,
1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
(make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
2) hold the trigger in the run position
3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
*** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.

I have an onan 2800 gen that will not charge


If the govenor didn't work that means that you placed the linkage on the carberator the wrong way. This will cause the genset to overspeed and possibly stop the genset from creating voltage. If the genset does not create voltage then you won't have a charger. Fix the linkage first by looking to make sure that the throttle plate is closed before starting genset. Once you start the genset check for voltage.
