Check for an open circuit breaker, bad or loose wire, make sure all wires in the wiring harness are connected without corrosion. Wires can break right at the connector due to vibration but the insulation on the wire will hide it.

My kipor KGE 6000 Ti generator overload light is on, and there is no current output.

Read the instruction manual. If you are certain you did everything right and the generator does not behave as intended then return it to the supplier as faulty.

Honda generator not producing electrical current

Generators rely on a residual magnetic field to "kick start" the current making process. Yours has lost this field. Easy enough to fix however.
Plug in an electric drill while it's running. Squeeze the trigger and manually twist the end of the drill (this will act as a miniature generator, as the Honda has lost its magnetic permeability and this motor rotating in reverse will generate a small current and restore it). Take care as, as soon as you spin it fast enough to develop a current, the generator will pick up on this current and start generating it's own current; energizing the drill. Once the generator starts generating current, it will repair itself.

Hi there I've had my ride on mower recently fixed but the battery light has come on C .it's fully charged and didn't come on before .is this ok and does it mean charging ? Thanks

Most warning lights mean something is not right and it comes on to tell you. Imagine a wire coming from your generator to the battery, current is going into the battery, along this wire another wire that has a Diode in it goes up to a Battery light and this light is grounded to the negative. The Diode will only allow the current to run on way, so when the current is running to the battery the light stays off because the Diode wont let the current which is running in the neg to positive direction through it, Now when the generator fails, the current is coming out of the battery as needed and the direction is positive to negative and the diode will let that pass which lights the Battery light. It is possible that diode has failed and is letting the current run both ways. If you have a Volt meter , put it on DC current, hook it to the battery, it will probably have a reading of around 12 volt, now start the tractor,push throttle up to fast, the volt meter should read 13.5 and up higher then that, as it charges the battery this will go down. If the voltage went down below the original reading you had before stating it ,then it is not charging and the battery light is doing its job.Hope this is some help and I did not get off the point of your question.

Over current light

its unlikely its the battery. it will be more like it is running too fast for some reason. i would contact generac for advice. or join the forums at ziller electric .com

27 KVA is a huge generator and should work just as well as the grid. The only thing I can think of is the startup current, which can easily be 5 times the running current is playing havoc.

You might try tightening up all your lugs and screws in your panel. A loose neutral can create some truly weird problems.

Generator vs mains power

Sometimes power is not clean enough for electronics. Other times the starting current is too high. You maybe able to make it work through some sort of isolating transformer or choke to clean up the power. Look into those suggestions. Also have you tried not plugging the machine in until the generator is up and running. The startup might be messing with the electronics.

The generator kicked the breaker of and was smoking and smelled like electrical

What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.

I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.

Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.

Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

20KW Guardian Generac does not produce 12 volts to run engine

The problem is that the printed circuit board inside the generator draws a little current from the battery even when the generator is not running. Over the course of a few days this can make the battery weak enough to be unable to get recharged by the built in running charger which results in not enough power to run the electronic governor on the generator. Usually the spark plugs will work even with a fairly low battery.

Most of the Generac generators come with a built in trickle charger that runs off of the transfer switch load terminals. If your built in charger isn't doing the job it's either broken or you have the wrong sort of battery installed in the generator.
