Question about Electrical Supplies

My g2300 Pro User fluctuates in power output. When i put it off for a few hours and then start it again, it generates power but after about 10 to 15 minutes, the engine still runs but does not output power. What could be wrong? and what can i do?

Open the control panel and inspect the wiring for hot spots. Fluctuating output power is usually caused by a capacitor wire being loose or a "cooked" capacitor from leaking wax and finally failing. If you see the capacitor is swollen or appears to be leaking candle wax, replace it For sure inspect all of the capacitor wires for any signs of head or looseness all the way down to the generator stator. Most capacitor wires are yellow but that is not always the case. Locate the wires and physically follow them from the capacitor to the diode and back to the generator stator winding looking for loose, chaffed or hot wires. DO NOT cut anything loose in the stator area. Just inspect unless you know you have a repair to do.
Also.... check the wires on the output switch / CB for the same thing (loose, chaffed, or hot) Since you said it works for about 10 - 15 minutes I am pretty sure you have cooking wires or a bad capacitor inside the control panel just from my over 40 years of past experience as a repair tech.

Why does my new BM907000B generator fluctuate?

With the information provided I would guess you have a fuel problem. Look for debris in the bottom of the tank or possibly water that will be easy to see in the fuel, with a good light. It really sounds like contaminated Gas. I hope that helps.

Generator had been running for 3 hours with a/c and refrigerator and lights (on concession trailer)when we experienced a loss

the unit has gone into over load
The total power requirement has exceed the output of the generator
for example if the generator is a 2.500 kw or kva then it will generate well at 1.8 kva or kw but it will not run forever at 2.5 kva -kw
When a ac is running the power requirement will be constant on the generator and with the fridge as well then the load will be at the maximum out put of the unit.
when the fridge starts again the extra load will exceed the max out put of the generator and it will slow down ( lights dimming ) and eventually go into overload mode
have an accredited electrician calculate your maximum load requirement for an external power supply and then get a unit that is at least 15.. kva kw better that required
generally fridges use 1000watts , ac conditions will draw over 3000watts and any thing else adds up . I am guessing that your generator is only 2500 unit

Why does my hedge trimmer die after a few minutes operation

This sounds like worn main bearings beginning to seize. Worn bearings generate more heat which causes the metal bearings and their races to 'swell," thus getting tighter and generating more heat until the drag of the bearing friction is greater than the power of the motor. Eventually you can't restart it until the engine has fully cooled down.

My generator will start but is not getting enough power to turn on appliances in the house what could be the problem? Its a coleman pro gen 5000 with a 5 gallon gas tank.

Just what kind of appliances are you trying to run with that little generator?

Check the wattage each appliance is rated for, check how many other things you might be powering, add it all up and that is what you will have to power it with, plus a few thousand watts for a cushion. Most likely you have exceeded the output of your generator. Turn off everything and then see what it can power simultaneously.

No arc on my miller trailblazer pro350

There are two sources of power for the exciter circuit on this machine. The main one takes output power from the generator then goes through the voltage regulator back to the rotating field to continue the cycle of generating. The regulator varies the power back to the rotating field to keep the output steady and correct. The other circuit provides power to the rotating field while you are starting the engine. This starts the loop. It is similar to flashing the fiels on old cars that had generators.
It power from the starting cycle portion seems to be working. This tells me the rotating field, the brushes and the main winding is all good. The problem is most likely the voltage regulator or associated wiring. There are people who repair and return these as they seem to give quite a bit of trouble. If you google the part number of the circuit board, you will probably find a few of these folks happy to repair your board. I have repaired a few myself as it is almost always the same components that fail. Dust,dirt and moisture seem to build up and cause the fault.
I hope this helps. Robert

probably your AVR card is burnt...
an AVR card is located right outside the stator...looks just like an AK-47 clip (i don't know how else to describe it)...i put a pic below this.
replace it and check again

Tv makes a loud "screaming" noise.

from what you descirbe this is an idication of a faulty flyback. the flyback is a special high voltage transformer that generates high voltage for the picture tubes. when you replace this you ussally replace horizontal output transistor. THis repair usally run 125 to 300 at our shop.

Coleman generator needs repair?

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.
