7 horsepower is approx 5150 Watts so the compressor would be taking this power while running. On startup however the compressor can take a surge of upto 3 or 4 times this power so the generator wouldn't be able to supply this demand . In any case it's not advisable to run a compressor off a generator unless the generator is high powered, 20KVA or greater for 7hp.

Honda eb5000 generator starts fine seems to run good but idle control does not work . will not rev up at all.i can turn carb idle screw in to bring revs up it makes power out of the generator but idle

Like a lot of stationary engines a generator engine is governed, or at least should be governed.

That is to say, when the engine is started it should be running at a predetermined speed which is not an idle speed but the speed the engine works most efficiently and that typically would be in the region of perhaps 1800 to 2500 rpm. In the case of an alternating current (ac) generator the speed will be determined by the alternator and the requirement of the frequency of the ac output to be around 50 to 60 cycles per second.

It is the function of the governer to maintain that preset speed within fairly close limits so when an appliance is connected to the generator and switched on the load increases and if it were not for the governer the engine would slow down which would be unacceptable. The governer therefore opens the throttle and restores the speed to the preset value. When the extra load is removed the engine will speed up momentarily and then restabilise at the right speed.

The governer is somethimes an engine driven set of bob-weights hidden inside the crankcase and sometimes nothing more complicated than a flap moving against a spring in the blast of cooling air from the fan. In all cases the governer is connected to the carburettor, typically by an adjustable link that includes a spring.

From your description it would seem the governer of your generator engine is jammed, broken, seriously maladjusted or simply no longer connected.

I hope this helps.

Honda eB5000 generator has no a.c. after sitting couple years . It does run but no power at output for tv.

You need to flash the rotor to rebuild the residual magentism so it can induce in the stator.

Honda generator (eb5000) will not idle steadily

use premium non-ethanol fuel(shell,BPS etc).Many stations to the west & north (,Hustisford & many other town's PREMIUM are non-ethanol) and add some sea foam to it. that ethanol is junk. If not used in 30 days toss it. nothin' but trouble.

My electricity provider is not reliable. I own 3 of your towers to heat individual rooms. I have settled on a generator to have when I lose power again. I want to run one of your towers, a light and a...

Each one of your heaters draws 1500 watts on HIGH & 900 watts on LOW. Obviously, your generator can not operate all three on HIGH. On low, all three would require 2700 watts of your generators power. Which leaves very little to operate any other electrical appliances in your home. Becasue these are electric ceramic heaters, there is no surge to them, when you turn tum ON. The wattage listed above, is continual wattage, when they are in use. There has to be an electrical motor involved to have start up surge (i.e Refrigerator, freezer, etc)

So, just operating what you described, will not use up all of your generator's power. You should have just under 1500 watts left over. Of course, if you used a battery operated radio, you could gain 25 additional watts of power.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
