Question about RTO New Yamaha Inverter Ef2400is / Yamaha Generator Ef2400 / Perfect For Camping, Emergency Home Use, Construction Sites And More!

1 Answer

My Yamaha Ef2400iS inverter shuts off when I use my 3/8th electric drill. This problem started last fall. I could use the drill and portable saw, not at the same time, since the inverter was new three years ago. The inverter runs the lights in the cabin without any problem. Got any ideas what's going on?

Yes, the problem is that electronic/electrical components age with use. especially voltage regulators and switching transistors. as they age they can no longer sustain the current you are demandiing from the unit. the units are designed to run in the middle zone, not at full maximum load all the time, if you do that you will weat it out quicker. Always buy a power supply that is double your intended wattage and it will last many years. Hope this answers your question

If you had oil in the carb, it came in through the intake manifold and breather, you may have yo clean out further, you may also need to remove cylinder head to clean out combustion chamber, of you cannot keep it running to burn it out

Goes into overload and shuts down


Not very much information in your problem troy but you might be drawing more amps than your producing. I had bought a nice little Craftsman electric tire pump but my Yamaha kept dying. After reading the labels, my 2400IS puts out 15 amps and my tire pump needed 18 amps, my friend now has a nice tire pump for his home use. I've seen post that RVers have to add the "booster" kit to start their air conditioners, extra power is needed to start them after that the 2400 can run them. Just a thought, try reading the metal tag on what your trying to run and see how many amps it needs. Anything over 15 will shut you down and some will need that extra "boost" to get them started. I seem to think I read somewhere that it is about $75.00 for the Yamaha booster kit.

I have a yamaha EF2400IS generator that starts fine, but when i shut it down and try to restart it hot it will not start up again until it cools down. Please help.


If it doesn't start but turns over ok. It may be a problem with the magneto / wiring or spark plugs. It seems as though this unit has no automatic shut down. I would try replacing the spark plugs BPR4ES NGK or equivalent and gap to .030, oil 5/30 or 10/30 will do takes less than 1 quart, & air filter (basic tune-up) if not performed in some time. Yamaha recommends every 20 hours. Then try again. Here is a link to the owner's manual. http://www.poweredgenerators.com/yamaha/manuals/ef2400is.pdf
