Gen starts then shuts down


Check rotor skip rings for cleanliness, rotor brushes. Stator resistance, rotor resistance. If ok then change control board

Hello I have a Honda Civic 2003 7th gen manuell. The engine cranks but doesn't start, spark plugs, gas, fuses and battery are ok I noticed that the steering wheel only locks to the left and I was wondering...


no start, cranks ok/
so check for spark, got spark too all 4 cylinders.
you know how to do that, its easy.
the cars ECU brain cuts fuel anytime there is no spark
and honda's have complex ignitions. some have 3 sensors. for spark.

Steering lock malfunction


check cranking compression also is ther gas on the spark plugs after cranking the motor say 20 seconds no gas then suck some gas into a 2 foot peice of vacuum line blow this gas into the manifold throttle(a spoonful) then crank if it starts then maybe bad fuel pump check to see if fuel is at fuel rail when the motor is cranking got gas? got spark ?are plugs blak and sooty ?(repleace) then check compression if its low by 20 to 30 pounds or has nun its jumped time at the timing belt/chain ask about that at auto zone and the ramifications

Kohler 12.5 res gen. Battery is good. Get OC code. If I reset auto switch by clicking off, then clicking run, then clicking auto it will start. Any thoughts on this issue?


OC is Over Crank which generally means it cranked and cranked and failed to start. Turning the switch off and on again is the way to clear the fault. How long is it taking to start whilst cranking? It should start within 8 seconds

I have a ruud ubhc-14j11sfd will a 17500 50 amp generator run without any problems


Look at the data plate on the unit, You need the LRA locked rotor amps, and RLA run load amps
It will also show max fuse size and min fuse size. A 3-4 ton unit should run on the gen, but starting is my question, this can be 3-7 times run load amps.

Rotor won't turn due to rare earth magnets have to much magnetism. The generator was working fine and the bearings had to be replaced. After replacing bearings and reassembling the generator we were...


You do not say what type/model generator you have, so I will just give you some basics.

There is nothing wrong with the magnets. Their power did not change at all, their pwer never changes, except to degrade slightly over time (hundreds of years.)


The generator rotor is hitting the stator. In other words, the alignment of the rotor inside the generator is off center, making the rotor bind on the inside of the stator, resulting in a lock-up.

With the generator attached to the motor, remove the generator end, and slowly try to turn the engine over by hand. REMOVE THE PLUG WIRE FROM THE PLUG FIRST, so that the engine cannot start. Watch inside the generator, and discover why the generator rotor is not aligned. Pehaps the bearings were installed incorrectly, or the housing is installed incorrectly. Most generator engines have a tapered power-takeoff shaft, where the gen. shaft connects to it. Is this Bolt tightened to specifications? Is there some debris floating around in the gen. (such as a screw, or a pebble, or a nut) that would impede its movement?

good luck

After over heating car died on freeway while in motion and now won't start. turns over but don't start


If you have a rotor / Distributor and not a coil pack you can remove the Distributor cap and crank the motor. If the the rotor doesn't turn your timing belt/chain has broken. In some cases this can happen if the computer is locked in safety mode. Try resetting the computer by disconnecting the Negative battery terminal for 60 sec then reconnect.

Fg2000tc tried a 1000 watt jack hammer but overload alarm came on what to do


Your gen. is a 2000 wt max 1000wt running out put. Means it will start your jackhammer but will not maintain the wattage to run it long. You are using the max it has to put out. So let me try to explain - 2000 watt max output works like this - We will use a fan as an example. A fan sitting still and not turning takes more amperage/watts to start. that is called lock rotor amps. So lets say the fan is a 1000w to run. 2000w start the fan turning then it takes 1000w to keep it turning. Your gen. can start the fan but not keep it running it is using all it has to put out, now if that fan only uses say 750 w running watts you have some head room to keep it running with out things getting hot. Hope this is clear as mud.

Have an fg5700ak runs ok but no power output what


Typical diodes are 10 amp for these. The stator and rotor both have VERY low resistance readings. The reading typically will be below that which will register MEANINGFULLY on the digital meters.

My generator had 10 amp diodes with surge protectors across them. One of the protectors shorted and generator output was zero. Mine is a 6KW diesel silent unit.

Replaced the diodes with 70 amp ones with surge protectors that have 20 times the energy absorbtion as the originals. Unfortunately this required some lathe work to make holders for the diodes and the surge protectors to ride on the rotor.

Used the light bulb trick to remagnitize it once diodes were replaced.
