Question about Coleman (100076) Compact Refrigerator
I have a brand new 1400 watt coleman pro force generator. I bought it about two monthes ago and tested it after purchasing. When I tested it I'm afraid that I may have overloaded the generator because I ran a table saw then a power saw to check out it's performance. The circuit breaker never tripped. The generator powered the tools but the load was well over it's capacity. Later I used it to power a PA System and the sound would go on and off. I then hooked up the generator to a Neon sign alone and it would flicker, never steady on.
To me the generator is useless in this condition.
I think the voltage is fluctuating because I fried something in the electrical generator? Can anyone help? I believe Coleman is Out of Business???
Coleman generators are junk and are not broken in at all from the factory. The most likely problem is that your brushes are not making a good contact or they are worn down completely. The cause is that the slip rings on a Coleman are very rough. As long as your engine is run at 60-62 hz steady there is nothing else that will cause you this problem period! Unless when the wires where stuffed in the generator end" from the factory" they where stretched to tight and have come loose and/or rubbed again the rotor. I have seem this problem very few times, but it is a Colem quality. Don't go replacing the diodes and the capacitor. If a diode goes out it goes out. If a cap goes out it goes out. If either one goes out you have no output, very simple.
