SOURCE: I have a North Star

Filter is fine showing half full. it will never fill up fully.

The card is your issue....it needs to be taken apart and cleaned with a good carb cleaning solution...one or more of the ports are probably clogged with gum and varnish from the old fuel.

Also check the needle and seat attached to the float make sure they are not sticking.

SOURCE: how much output can i get from northstar 5500 ppg generator

there are two things in generator out put
one is max out put which is 5500 in your case and another is rated out put which should be about 4500 in your generator Max out put should be used only for a little time say half an hour otherwise generator is suppose to run on rated load or rated out put which is 4.5 kva or 4500watts in your set that also when you are in Ideal conditions means if you are at the sea level if you are above in altitude you can calculate that engine will loose its efficiency at the rate of 3% after every 1000 feet altitude inthat way you can calculate how much rated load you can put on the generator

MOTOR RUNS FINE IT PUTS OUT 110V BUT AFTER 10 MIN 0R MORE WILL DROP DOWN TO 90V


Much will depend on the design of the alternator and how the rotor is energised and/or how the output is controlled. There are various methods including the use of electronics, especially with inverter generators.

As the output drops after 10 minutes it would suggest heat is a factor and that suggests problems with electronics rather than something mechanical (brush gear if fitted) or purely electrical (windings or bearings, etc.).

Certainly it would be wise to check the brush gear, bearings and visual wiring and connections before spending money at the repair shop.

Adustments engine speed low rpm


You cannot adjust the voltage output. All generators are rated for 110-125 volt recepticals and usually have at least one 220-240 volt receptical for special appliances that require it such as water heaters, pumps, welders, air conditioners. When one of these higher draw appliances is connected and they begin to draw amperage, the gas engine will automatically increase rpm to produce enough amps. If your generator gauge is showing low voltage such as 60,80 or 90volts for example, then you have overloaded the generator and blown a capacitor, resistor or similar item.

Hello, ushicks/me hillybilly. One question how old is the fuel in then generator tank,Hey. If it has a fuel filter replace it. Modern gasoline is junk fuel and after a few months it looses some chemical proprieties. GB...stewbison
