I have a Kohler Marine 4ES Generator in my 29 Foot Sea Ray and the engine keeps cycling (no load) from almost shut-down to max speed. What can this be? I have changed the Electric Fuel Pump - Fuel...

The governor and / control maybe your issue. Also if you have the electronic governor model, check the speed sensor screwed in near the fly wheel, it should have approx 2VAC on it during crank.

The motor is running but it is not generating electricity.

Here's a link to your manual:

No power is a result of a break in the output circuit of the generator. The most likely places for this to happen are at connection points and moving parts designed to open and close manually and automatically. These include terminal screws and push on type connectors, switches and circuit breakers.

Before beginning, you should follow the troubleshooting chart for "..No AC Output" on Page 21 of the manual.

Since there is a great deal of vibration on the entire unit, it is not unlikely to have open connections where there shouldn't be. A careful disassembly of the control box with the unit off and disconnected from the electrical panel should allow you to poke around without fear of shock or burns. It would be a good idea to take a picture or two of the connections when you open the box - before disconnecting anything. otherwise, be sure to label wires and terminals for anything you take apart.

Look for evidence of arcing or sparking. This is usually a blackened area near a terminal or wire. Clean the contact area and determine where the connection point is supposed to be and complete the circuit as per the schematic. Check for loose wires "floating" in air (aka not connected to anything). Reconnected as shown by the schematic. Next, apply pressure to all terminals and connectors to find any that are loose. Resecure any found. pay attention to those on DP1, DP2 and the 240 volt 30 amp outlet.

Using the schematic on Page 22, check the 25 Amp circuit breaker identified as CB1 by removing wires 11A and 44A from this circuit breaker's terminals. Use a multimeter set on Ohms (or resistance), set and zero to the lowest range, and test from the terminal with the #11 wire on it to the terminal that had 11A on it. With the circuit breaker ON, it should read less than a couple of Ohms. This is a closed circuit indication. Repeat tests with terminals 44 and 44A. If you lack a meter, you should be able to use a continuity light (this will cause a light to illuminate when there is a good battery in it and there is a connection or path between the probes of the light). The meter resistance should indicate an infinite amount of resistance when the circuit breaker is turned off (as the light should go off when the circuit breaker is turned off, too). This is the open circuit indication. If the meter never indicates a closed circuit with the breaker ON, the breaker should be replaced. If it works as expected, reconnect the 11A & 44A wires to their original terminals.

Continue to test each CB2 and CB3 the same way. Remove wire 11B from the terminal of the circuit breaker and test from wire 11A to the circuit breaker terminal that 11B was connected to. With the breaker ON, it should show as closed circuit. When off it should show open circuit. If not, replace the circuit breaker. Reconnect 11B to the circuit breaker terminal. Lastly, move to CB3 and Remove wire 44B from the terminal of the circuit breaker and test from wire 44A to the circuit breaker terminal that 44B was connected to. With the breaker ON, it should show as closed circuit. When off it should show open circuit. If not, replace the circuit breaker. Reconnect 44B to the circuit breaker terminal.

The rest of the check out requires that the generator is running and voltage measurements be taken. As little as 50 volts can kill under the right conditions, so extreme caution must be exercised. If you have never worked on these systems before or are
not completely comfortable working with voltages levels this great, you should stop at this point. Otherwise, check for the presence of 240 volts on CB1 terminal 11 & 44. If not present, there is a problem with the voltage regulator or generator windings themselves. Repairing or replacing these parts may not be worth doing depending on age of the generator, etc.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Brand new B&S 5000 watts generator,bought at H.D. Out of the box, set it up , checked oil level,OK!,filled with gas,OK!.started right up! ran for 5Mins to break in. Plugged in skill saw, made my cuts....

There really is not much you can do without voiding your warranty. This may be something simple like a connector that vibrated loose inside the control panel. (Alternator to contol panel inter-connect) There could also be a wire lying loose that was not connected. Open the control panel... and look for anything obviously out of place. DO NOT do anything else. After that your stuck with the warranty process of Briggs and Stratton.

or 1-800-233-3723
When your at a B & S service / repair point... (store front)
Things to note .
1. Tell servicer unit is for PRIVATE USE (There is no warranty for commercial use)
2. Have proof of purchase in hand otherwise they will use the MFG date as the start point of the warranty. Many generators sit in a warehouse or on the shelf long past an implied warranty (date of mfg) Bottom line you need to have your sales slip.

There are several things I could have you do but... as the consumer the only thing you can do is perform an inspection. By opening the control panel you need to tell the servicer the only thing you did was a VISUAL Inspection...... Anything else will void your warranty.

So.. look for any obviously loose parts or or connectors. After that sadly your stuck with dealing with warranty service.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Powermate 4000 with Briggs & Stratton motor (8hp) won't start. New spark plug, gas & fuel stabalizer added, oil added. What could be wrong?

Next step is to check that the magnet attached to the fly wheel is working properly. When you crank the generator over, put a multimeter on the leads to the magnet and look for a spike in the voltage. Be sure to get the polarity correct or you will damage your multimeter. If there isn't a spike in the voltage, then either the magnet is bad or the fly wheel is damaged. In either case parts will have to be ordered and replaced. If there is a spike in voltage, then it is time to check the fuel intake. Open up and take out the air filter. Inspect the air filter to make sure it is clean and doesn't have fuel or oil in it. If the air filter is we with either things, then this will prevent air from reaching the engine. This alone will cause it not to start. If the filter is clean, then leave it off and open up the throttle. This will give you direct access to the engine through the fuel intake. Put some fuel into a spray bottle, and when you crank over the engine spray some fuel into the hole where the air filter was. If the engine starts/sputters then you have a problem with your carburetor. If the engine doesn't start then you have a deeper issue that may require a trained mechanic to fix. Lets say that if the engine does start/sputter, then we need to take the carburetor off. Our goal is to clean the carburetor of any build-up and/or corrosion that has settled in the carburetor bowl. The carburetor is between the air filter assembly and the main engine block. When in doubt, trace the fuel line from the gas tank, and it will lead you to the carburetor. Next, grab the necessary tools and start by turning off the fuel and draining the carburetor. The fuel valve is typically inline with the fuel line. To drain the carburetor bowl loosen the screw on the bottom of the carburetor bowl. Once the last drop is out, then unbolt the carburetor from the engine block. With the carburetor off and parts labeled for easy re-assembly, you then have to remove the fuel bowl. This will either unscrew as a whole from the carburetor body, or have a central bolt that has to be removed. When removing the bowl, PLEASE be very careful and mindful of the fuel float and the filling pin. With the bowl safely off, inspect it for fuel build-up and rust/corrosion. If there is either in the bowl then this means you need to grab a fuel safe cup and an old toothbrush and carefully start cleaning the bowl and the surrounding parts. If you are comfortable with small parts at this point, then carefully remove the fuel float and the the filler pin underneath it. Please take note on how this dis-assembles to ease re-assembly. Clean these parts as well with the clean fuel and toothbrush. Assemble the parts back together once you are sure everything is clean and put the carburetor assembly back onto the engine block. Once everything is tightened down, it is time to turn the fuel back on at the valve on the fuel line. With the fuel back on, hit the prime button 3-5 times and crank the engine over. If the engine doesn't turn over at this point, then there is a much deeper mechanical issue that requires a trained mechanic to fix. Most mechanical fixes at this point are not worth your while and you may save money by purchasing a new engine/generator. Please let me know what you find during diagnosis, and I can provide more help.

WAnt start

first make sure good gas in in the unit as well the fuel is flowing to the carb if this is ok pull the spark plug and ground the side to the block make sure you don't have any gas spilled.
turn the run switch on if it has one and crank the engine you should see a spark if you do then back to the carb you may need to disassemble it and rebuild kit the carb and check if the float is not stuck this is common if the unit sits a wile with gas in them the best was to prevent this from happening gain is to run the unit with the gas off till it stalls and no gas is still in the carb.
if you don't have a spark then you will need to check the kill wire and the low oil switch wires to make sure they did not rub and ground out when thease wires ground it will prevent the engine from running.
if they look ok remove the pull starter cover you will see a flywheel and on the top their will be a coil that the spark plug wire leads it will be black their will be another small wire as well ether orange , red, or black some will have a small tab for a plug check the wires from that point depending on the age their some models that use a solid state module and the small wire will be a kill so ther cant be grounded is it is repair and rotate the flywheel with spark plug removed and grounded look for a spark if so this issue will be fixed and reassemble unit and test run in it is older and has a point system you will need to remove the flywheel and replace the points or repair electrics under the fly wheel check the fly wheel key-way as well if damaged replace.
when done test for spark again if fixed reassemble test run if still no spark check the low oil sensor a one wire then just clip the wire and test spark if spark their then replace the low oil sensor or leave undone check oil regular. reassemble run if still no spark then you have a bad coil module and it will need replacing but this is rare hope this helps

Lombardini diesel generator starts and runs fine but no elecpower

remove the covering panel and expose the internals , check for loose/disscontected push on ( lucar ) connectors , if these are fine it is most likely the excitation capacitor is deffective , replace with exactly the same value/voltage rating/duty cycle . the capacitor is usual 1 or up to 3 cylindrical tubes with 2 wires comming from them , always take a note of exactly what wires you have taken off :) hope this helps
