My coleman powermate pro 6750 generator only puts out like half power, after 30 minutes it loads up and runs fine. what causes this?


It would be surprising to me if the engine was running at proper speed while it is not putting out full power. I am not familiar with your particular model so my answers are coming from knowledge of generators in general. If it is running at proper speed then it would have to be a regulator problem. This is assuming that it isn't trying to run in an overload condition and that you are letting it run a little before you put a load on it.

I have a coleman model 525202 with a 10 hp tecumseh when idling it pops and runs bad but as soon as i put a load on it it smooths out i have replaced the plug gap is at 30 changed fuel and air filter...


Hello; Make sure all the moving parts on the carb are free especially the governor shaft going into the front of the engine.Use Gumout or PB Blaster to free up parts. Then start it up with no load. Turn the needle valve on the bottom of the carb counterclockwise until it starts to sputter out. mark this point in your mind and then turn valve in clockwise. Engine will smooth and then start to die. Back needle off to a point halfway between these points. If it is way off turn in carefully till it seats, then back out 1 1/2 turn to get it to start.You may still have to do a touch up when you put it under load. John

WHEN IT IS PUT UNDER A LOAD IT WILL NOT STAY RUNNING UNLESS YOU LEAVE THE CHOKE ON


Possible that the engine is not getting sufficient fuel for running and so the choke action is needed. You need to check if the oil switch is cutting off the power, - if so replace oil.
Secondly the fuel settings might need a check up. You might need to clean/reset the plugs/spark gaps and also overhaul the carburator to solve this issue.

When you put a load on generator it powers up and down and tries to cut off.


sounds like you are trying to put too much of a load on your generator. I have a 3500w generator and when I hooked it up to my 120v (not sure how many HP) well pump when the pump would try to cut on the generator would bog down and even die. took off the load and started right up. will run other things just not heavy loads. maybe you need a bigger generator for what you are trying to power.

Just up graded from a homelite 4400 to a craftsman 5600 generator 5600 does not have enough output as did the 4400 why


Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't. Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.
Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.
By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total resistive output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.
For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.
You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

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..

sounds like the float is stuck, how long has it ben setting around? try some carburetor cleaner. spray the carburetor down. empty the fuel tank put fresh fuel with fuel treatment. you may have to remove the spark plug, pull starter string a couple of times to clear out cylinder make sure spark plug is dry put back in and try to start the generator.

Corel Paint Shop Pro (any version) crashes while loading


i recently faced problem in paint shop pro x2...PSP was just freezes or stuck at load...i reinstalled it...It loaded successfully this time but soon became freezes when i shut it off and tried to run again....Now wht i did is this......
PSP Plugins was some whr incompatible or something other problem with Adobe CS4 Plugins..coz i redirected PSP to get load not just its own Plugins but also load Adobe CS4 Plugins as well....and thats whr my Problem started......
So wht i did is...just Cut the Plugins of Adobe CS4 to Desktop(for temporary purpose) and Load PSP again ...and it ran all fine...:)now i went to File/Preference/Locate File and remove the Path towards the Adobe CS4 plugins.....and then same Cut and paste Plugins(which i put on desktop) back to Adobe CS4 Folder......Now no problem at all....chao...

Sherwood Amplfier


Sounds like you like your music like me... LOUD. If you've done this a number of times, there are a few things that can happen:

1. You've blown the speakers... but you've said it operates for 2 seconds, then cuts out.
2. You've damaged the amplifier modules within the amp and they immediately overheat upon power-up. Does the music come back like 5 or 10 seconds after the unit cuts out?
3. Thermal switch has malfunctioned and just cuts off the power to the amplifier modules as soon as it sees any heat.
4. If you've gotten the amp really HOT during playing, it's possible that it's as simple as the amp modules are only intermittently connected (fatigued/stressed or cold solder joints) at the on the PCB. Just resolder the connections of the amp module to the PCB. I've seen that happen numerous times and that's where I'd place my money.
