Question about Yamaha Electrical Supplies
Posted by Anonymous on
Small generators like this almost always have 2 stator windings 180 degrees out pf phase, that's how it makes the 220.
At the back (maybe side) of the outlet box should be a molex type plug that has the wires from the stator, get an ohm meter and measure them (with the generator shut off of course). You should find that you've got 4 wires in the plug, 1 wire for each end of 2 coils. From one end to the other of each coil you should measure less than an ohm, between the coils there is usually no connection, but some models have the neutral ends of each coil connected together inside the generator housing.
It sounds to me like you've got one of the power windings open...

Go to your electricians store and ask if they have a converter plug, Don't go to a Homedepot type place, go to the specialty place where electricians go. Their depth of knowledge is way better.
