I have a 400 watt sunforce wind generator that is not spinning a lot and the red light is blinking on it

Check the ball bearings at the axis.when the ball bearings at the axis of the spinning have dust or dirt it turns slow.Clean it or change bearings.

How does a wind turbine work?

A Wind turbine operates on a simple principle .The energy in the wind turns 2 or 3 propellor like blades around a rotor .The rotor is connected to the main shaft which spins a generator to create electricity. Wind turbines are mounted on a tower to capture the most wind energy.

I would like to build a 24volt wind turbine ,I think that I have most of the Items to construct the unit but just need a wiring diagram to get started ,would you be able to help me?

allright. what kind of electric motor do you have? brushed DC or brushless? Yyu will need a controller in both situations. Actually if you have DC type brushed motor you will only need a regulator circuit. You may use one from trucks which is used to charge 24 volt battery:.

Need to hook-up pond motor 115V , two speed , 3/4 3450 rpm-1/8 1725 rpm , with switch for speed slection.

We need to know what wires you have as far as connections to the motor AND the switch. I.e. Red white black green and ______?

Is the switch resistive or just a 2 position (high/ low) 15 Amp switch?

We also need to know how the the terminals on the motor board are labeled. i.e T1, L1, T2, L2. T3, T4 etc and ground. L1 Black L2 White for high speed Green for gorund. The other 2 colors will be for the slower speed winding.

Experimenting with electricity can be costly and VERY dangerous. I would do continutiy checks on the motor windings across L1 and L2 or T1 and T2 and the same for the 2nd winding terminals. Then do the same continuity check from the power wires through the switch and verify the winding resistance across the 2 power leads in BOTH switch positions BEFORE applying power.

Most reputable pump manufacturing companies have the winding terminals on the label or included with the pump with a basic wiring diagram.

FYI you can... use a gate valve for controlling output flow from the pump and run the pump at one speed as an alternative.

I am just being honest here.. without either a wiring diagram of your pump and switch assy it is difficult to pass "safe and sound" advice to you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Wind turbine plans/solar panel plans

You are in for a lot of fun and money saving tips and instruction. I as you am interested in building a wind turbine/ generator to do my part in saving the environment and saving me money. I have a small work -shop and have some generator parts to work with. Reading about building is fun but watching a video of actual working machines is the most. Go to and enter homemade wind generator in the search box and enjoy the fun and instruction. Good luck with you project.

Coleman 5000 w generator

1) You'd have to figure out a way to support the engine end of the rotor. Right now the engine rear main bearing is the front bearing of the generator.

2) You'd need to make a wind turbine that produces 6+ horsepower (at least) to get the 5 Kw out of it.

Usually small wind turbines drive polyphase generators that charge batteries used to run inverters. Go see: for a pretty good discussion of the problems to solve.
