SOURCE: no power output from a generac c5000 generator

First check the circuit breakers on the control/outlet panel.
Then take the end off the generator and look at the brushes (usually what breaks) and the 2 slip rings they ride on (these get dirty and have to be cleaned off with a bit of emery cloth)
Then look at the voltage regulator (the little board that the brushes plug into)

Let me know if you need more detailed help,
Carl

SOURCE: Fuel will not pass through the carb

The carb is probably plugged up with 'varnish' that occurs if the gas sat in the carb too long. Try letting some carb cleaner sit in it over night. It may end up having to be pulled apart to clean it throughly. Always use 'stable' in your gas and if you don't run for extended periods, let it run all the gas out until it stops running. That way the carb is empty.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Usually when you have a lower voltage output that is yet above 150 VAC the problem is as simple as the engine is no longer running at full speed. This could be caused by binding carb or governor linkages but more often than not the Governor adjustment screw has backed off over time causing the engine to gradually slow so the output voltage drops. The user does not notice it so much until the output drops more than 15% and you notice dim lights... slower running equipment etc.

Look for a circular plate / governor speed plate near the base of the governor lever but off to one side that has a spring that attaches to the governor lower end of the governor. There should be a screw with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise to increase engine speed. (You may have to barely loosen the pivot nut on the governor speed control adjustment plate to make the speed adjustment.... tighten when done with speed adjusment) Watch your output voltage and adjust the voltage to 225 VAC with NO LOAD. The voltage will drop as loads are added. Make sure to tighten the lock nut on the adjusting screw or in a matter of an hour you will have low voltage again from engine speed dropping. What ever you do.... DO NOT adjust the governor arm base attach point where it attaches to the engine.

Just so you know a weakened governor spring can cause the speed drop also. If the speed keeps dropping with extended use, you may have to change the spring that goes from the lower end of the governor arm to the governor speed adjustment plate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Generator burning my electronics up


take you generator in and have the output tested for correct voltage and sine wave configuration
electronics rely on a perfect sine wave ac current as a manufactured sine wave affects electronic components such as capacitors, transistors and diodes
generator sets that run an alternator ( not an inverter ) have a pure sine wave and have less affect on electronics.
go google and type in search headings like ---sine wave, inverter sine wave, sine wave affects on electronics, alternator operation and inverter operations and then you may get a pointer as to why your inverter gen set is affecting your electronics

How to wire up outboard effects, poweramps to mixer. Out to sub, mains, monitors each with own poweramp, and several outboard effects, eq's, comp/lim/gate, sonic maximizer, quadraverb, crossover.


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.
Don't feed amp outputs into powered speakers

No charging on a1959 MG A.


I can't rem but that a generator on that? The you need to check the gen, the regulator and the battery. Start with the battery as you need some power to excite the gen before it can make any power. If thats good and yo can run it check the gen output. The ouput will vary with rpm so as long as you have something it should be good. Next will be the external volt regulator. At a fast idle you should see about a half volt over the system rating Again not sure if that one is 6 or 12 volts. The gen and regulator can be rebuilt or replaced

My reciever overheated


Hello
You haven't given any details of the present condition of your Sony Amp. Anyway, I posts this solution assuming that, the set is dead now. If the set has been overheated, there must be some short or overload, in its output section. The output section is the most current conscuming part of any amp. To detect and repair this section, you must ahve sound knoledge in electronics, especially digital electroncis, because, except output part of this set, all other sections are digital circuits. Without knowing anything about digital electonics, all work will be in vein.
If you have enough knoledge, inform me by Fixya comment box. i'm ready to assist you to troubleshoot this set. You must have thorugh knoledge in electronics to follow me. OK.

I HAVE A POWERMATE 5000 THAT SHUTS DOWN UNDER LARGE LOAD . I THINK I NEED AN IDLE CONTROL MODULE.THERE IS A 2 WIRE MODULE IN THE START CKT. #21009XA IS THIS IT AND WHERE DO I GET ONE .


Idle control comes into play when there is no power draw forcing the engine to idle with an electro magent. If you feel that the electro magnet is interfering with governor, temp remove the wire to the solenoid. Usually the idle control will not effect how the engine /gen output power. An overloaded condition will cause the engine the go the full throttle as the internal governor of the engine will try to maintain 3600 rpm. Overloaded condition will greatly shorten the life of the generator/engine. Try to use only about 80 % of rated power. Large motors can draw three times running amps. A compressor using 12 to 18 amps to run can draw over 40 amps to start.
If your generator could handle the load in the past, check the engine for loss of power, or the generator for faulty voltage regulator or capacitors out of range. Easy to check. Connect digital volt meter to plug /load and look at volt reading while running with no load and loaded. Voltage should stay between 110 to 120 under load and with no load (unless goes into idle mode). Good luck

There is simple no answer to a question like this. It's just an amp. There are no tweaks except volume. What are the speakers and how much undistorted power can THEY handle?

Amps don't 'run' from 'x' to 'y' ohms. The spec you're viewing tells you how it acts with loads at those values so you can plan accordingly. Since they don't mention distortion values with those wattage numbers the power specs are meaningless.

ANY amp driven beyond its 'clean' power limits will start distorting and THAT will kill speakers if not the amp itself. Audible distortion and excessive heat at the amp are signs of stress. The best sound and performance will be somwhere below that point.

http://www.pyleaudio.com/manuals/PDG4000.pdf

It's not clear what is represented in the "XXX Total Watts Power" statements on page 6. I'm guessing that would be what it DRAWS in wall power so you can plan where to plug it in without tripping a beaker.

Hence, given that no amp converts all of its drawn power into audio power since a lot of heat is created, the actual usable audio output wattage would be somewhere closer to maybe 40% of the total divided by how many speakers are driven. No reputable manufacturer specs an amp at 'x watts time y channels'. It's "PER CHANNEL all channels driven" that makes any sense for comparison.

If a car can go 150 miles per hour and has 4 wheels is that 4 x 150 for output if it had only one wheel?

The 1200w rated for the amp is usually an absolute maximum output, the rated output is more likely about a quarter of this figure (300w) I think for the subs you are looking at, you would be better off with a more powerful amp
