20 Most Recent Winco 5500 Watt TriFuel Power System w/ Electric Start Honda - PSS6H Questions & Answers

It's best to run all electronics through a UPS and surge protector. Small generators like the RG-950 are really for small power tools and lighting. The Ryobi RG-950 is only rated 650 watts which really means about 450 watts (70%) for continuous use. In general, a basic desktop or a laptop should be OK. A TV up to 25 inches and a 100w lamp, should be OK. If you try doing both at the same time, expect smoke followed by lights out. A UPS and Surge Protector are a must on small generators due to their poor voltage and frequency regulation. The UPS should be a good quality one that deals with Brownout, Overvoltage, and frequency deviation. ALWAYS USE A SURGE PROTECTOR!

950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

The capacitor has no bearing as you have output on one leg. Take or have an electrician check the power from L1 to N and L2 to N right as it comes off the generator stator, before any breakers and receptacles. If you have no power still on one leg, the stator is bad. The rotor is fine as you indicate you have power on one leg, you may have lost one set of windings in sthe stator. Good Luck

How long has the unit sat?
After long periods the rotor loses it's residual magnetism and may have to be field flashed for a few seconds. Also check that the rotor slip rings are clean and shiney

I have not worked on this model, however other Wenco generators have a capacitor the retains a charge to aid in the beginning of the power cycle. Also diodes could be leaking. Simple check with meter but parts must be removed or isolated to properly test. Be sure to short leads of cap before testing. More information is available at WWW.wencogen.com.

The two alarms simultaneous is questionable. My first thought is faulty control board but requires further troubleshooting. Check for loose cable connections and grounds.

As a test; check oil level. If oil level is safe, disconnect oil level sensor and see if problem goes away. If problem reoccurs, troubleshoot oil warning circuit.
