Question about Honda EU6500iS Inverter Generator
This sounds like a capasitor/resistor that is getting hot under load once it is switched off and cools down it works until it gets hot again similar to that of a cars ignition coil which will get hot and cut the vehicle out but once it cools it will start again.

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

ARE SURE ITS THE OVERLOAD LIGHT AND NOT THE NOIL ALERT? IF ITS THE OIL ALERT ITS CAUSE YOUR LOW ON OIL OR THE SENSOR INSIDE THE GENERATER IS BAD?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly a 1955 model life long electrician.
I don't remember where the capacitor is on this unit. I think it is in the control panel area. I am pretty sure the capacitor is breaking down. It will be either a 25 uF or 31.5 uF capacitor. Look for what appears to be candle wax dirpping out of it or... any signs of swelling. I have had this happen on my own generator 2 times over 10 years. I finally bought oil filled capacitors and the wax leak / eventual failure . overloading problems are gone. Have your capacitor checked. Test across the leads for resistance at R x 1000 and watch that resistance drifts to infinity. Reverse the leads and watch for the same resistance and drift to infinity. Inspect the capacitor wires as far as you can inspect them. Usually there is a disconnect terminal before the stator winding. The connectors somtimes get hot and start cooking off the connectors. Many times I have had to simply cut out the connectors, solder the wires together and cover them with heat shrinkable tubing. The same goes for stator winding wires but not that often. Most of the time it is the capacitor field wires that have problems.
Is this an EU3000, EU3000-I, or EU3000-IS model?
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
