Honda Mmd 5000 Watt Generator W/ Engine Ngk 6000H - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

you need to tie into the 220 voltage at you breaker panel... 5000 watts will barely power your heater. you will not be able to power it direct as it needs low voltage for the control... but I am not an expert

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.

Plugged air filter, plugged exhaust or oil is old or not light enough wait.

try spraying starting fluid in to carb and crank away,itf it woirks then youi need carb work,if it does nothing then check the spark, then the comprussion, should be over one hundred

it may be running far to fast, just slow it down a little
how did you get this reading,,,on load or off load???
if off load hook up a light bulb and take another reading,,if its pulled the volts back down thats fine,,,if not plug in to the geny some thing thats close to its full load,,,"not more than this" now take the reading,,,
if still high lower the reves till its just 120v on full load
mind you,,,5000watts? thats a big un!!!!

The Choke's function is to limit air intake till engine reaches opperating temperature.It should decrease to nill if auto.If not then try increasing the idle.Good Luck.

If the doides have a number on them, goto and cross reference them to a good number. Then you can find a dealer on the web site also.

For your question, i have replied many people, why generator set can start but not generate electricity?
Here is some reasons for reference:
1.After the diesel generator is stopped, the residual magnetism is often lost, because the material used for the magnetic pole of the exciter is close to the soft steel, and the residual magnetism is small. After the shutdown, when there is no current in the excitation winding, the magnetic field will disappear.
2.The magnetic pole of the diesel generator loses its magnetic properties.
3.Damage of excitation circuit components or circuit breakage, short circuit or grounding phenomena.
4.The exciter brush is not in good contact with the commutator and pressure of brush holder is insufficient.
5.Excitation winding wiring error, opposite polarity.
6.Stator winding and rotor winding of generator set open circuit.
7.Poor contact between diesel generator brush and slip ring, or insufficient brush pressure.
8.Diesel generator lead wire wiring is loose or switch contact is poor.
9.The fuse box is fused.
10.The "auto-manual-de-excitation" switch on the control panel is in the de-excitation position (automatic generator set has "auto-manual-de-excitation" switch).
11.The voltmeter is damaged.
12.Rotary rectifier module is damaged.

Most of the time it is either the Capacitor or AVR that has blown (depending on what is fitted on your generator.). Check out our videos on how to test them.
We hold a full range of Generator AVRs and Capacitors.

We have a whole Help Center and Engineers dedicated to helping people fix their Portable Generators. In addition to this we have a "Parts Search Service" if the part is not listed on our site. Check us out on our site.

I think there is overload .kindly measure ur load of consumption. Do not run the generator set with high load it can be cause of circuit breaker Tripp off .

Honda Electrical... | Answered on Jul 27, 2019 | 172 views

you probably have either a bad capacitor or more likely a short stator winding due to previous overloading

Verify that the double gang circuit breaker is good on both sides. Check for loose wire on breaker or receptacle.
