Make sure the capacitor is not burned out. That is usually under the rear cover of the generator.

Generator electrical problem


No it sounds like the engine is losing power, as the RPM drops the voltage drops, this increases the current load and that trips the breaker.

Why would my generator engine runs great but it will not power any of my tools. what could be the problem?


With no load on the generator, take a voltage reading at the output plug of the generator, if there is no voltage, check to make sure that no breakers are tripped or fuses blown.

Truelife generator 5000e will run but want put out any power


Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers Verify that the engine is running at full RPM If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

Engine speeddoes not raise when put under load but produces power


First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

I have a 5kw generator it was working fine I use it on the oil fields to power my little rv suddenly every time I turn on the air con it trips the breaker and now im using a air compressor and at first...


A number of things can cause this. A sit worked before !
Basically:

Engines get older and can't hold HP which causes the rpm to slow and voltage dip, this causes a current increase and trips.

Breakers also get weaker especially if they trip a few times
HVAC and compressors pull approx 6 times the current to start as they do to run, once they have run a while, they build up higher head pressures which cause harder starting and more current draw, hence the breaker tripping.

It's hard to pin point which is the actual issue, but these all contribute.

I have a troybilt 7000 gas generator that trips the main output breaker when under a load after 5 minutes


1. Make sure that the generator limit is not being exceeded.
2. Try checking and raising the rpm. If the engine can not sustain the load from the generator, it can/will trip the breaker.
3. If the carb is dirty or the engine runs poorly it can trip the breaker. Tune up the engine, clean the carb, make carb adjustments to correct substandard running conditions.

Engine runs but won't generate any electricity


Sometimes the generator loses the magnetic field that allows it to produce power. Do a Google search on "flashing a generator field". There are many ways to do it, but I would recommend doing some reading before trying it. Your "dead" generator could produce hazardous voltage once it comes back to life.

Also, before trying any of this, make sure the circuit breakers on the generator (if equipped) are not tripped.

Good luck and be careful!
