20 Most Recent Honda EU6500iS Inverter Generator - Page 4 Questions & Answers

Hi, You can get parts from "Generator Guru" for your Dunlite generator and your Honda, as it sounds like the anti vibration engine mounts are shot.

Sorry, but I can't help you with the manuals.

Kind regards

My friend has one, and after he starts it, he places a small mini shipping crate over it (like the kind you see in photos of cargo ships). Seems like the crate is made of some kind of plastic or fiberglass, and he has a short flexible steel pipe going out of a small hole that is cut out of the bottom of the back side for an exhaust. Seems to squelch the sound fairly well. Good luck.

the tank when all of the bolts removed will slide off the rubber mounts and out one end
refitting is to remove the rubber , slide the tank back in and then put the rubbers back under the flange of the tank

problem with voltage regulator/ generator as when this functions properly it will raise engine speed hence giving out the power out put required

I think the problem is on when the key is turn to rotate and to engage the starter motor and it at this point that the cable curring the current on to the starter motor it then the fuse gets blown , in my opinion this cable is shortening across the chassis causing the fuse to blow, or when it get to the starter solenoid a faulty solenoid absorbs accessed electric current causing the fuse to blow

Generators rely on a residual magnetic field to "kick start" the current making process. Yours has lost this field. Easy enough to fix however.
Plug in an electric drill while it's running. Squeeze the trigger and manually twist the end of the drill (this will act as a miniature generator, as the Honda has lost its magnetic permeability and this motor rotating in reverse will generate a small current and restore it). Take care as, as soon as you spin it fast enough to develop a current, the generator will pick up on this current and start generating it's own current; energizing the drill. Once the generator starts generating current, it will repair itself.

After reading about Honda's Eco Throttle system available on inverter generators it seems it is not a fuel metering system but a computer controlled speed regulator or basically an electronic throttle.
Because the engine of an inverter generator doesn't need to run at a constant high speed to produce the correct 50 or 60 Hz output this generator can run at slower speeds when the load is light. The electronic throttle is the means to make it happen - operated by the computer.

The throttle is probably operated by a stepper motor and the power supplied to it likely to be in digital form. I suggest you try and gain a more full account of how the system works before you delve deeper.

I don't know.
The air gap isn't usually critical. It needs to be a small gap for best efficiency but must not be so close it will touch if expansion brings it closer at operating temperature.

The last air gap I adjusted was on a Briggs engine and that was 0.008", 8 thou which I believe is fairly typical for that type of application.

a good book on smaller generators is clymers manual. you may check to see if that one is listed.

Carburetor is probably gummed up. Try running some "Sea Foam" in your gas, run it until the mix is in the carb and then shut it off and let it sit. I had to let a snowblower sit a week until it dissolved all the gum. If your using gas with Ethanol, this is a common problem. Try finding a station that sells gas without Ethanol or use Sea Foam to keep the Ethanol from breaking down. (It can break down in as little as 30 days).

if you are using a lead that has a active , a neutral and a ground wire in the lead , there is no real reason to ground the gen set itself
the neutral will not be bonded to the frame as that would create a possible short during operation
the circuit is simple --active is the power wire --neutral is the return wire from the applications and the ground wire is for dead shorts and to prevent electrocution
