Question about Electrical Supplies
All breakers OK? Then it could be lost exciter current. Her's how to restore it - Connect 16 or 18 gauge wires to a 12 volt battery. With the generator running, insert bare wire ends into the AC outlet - one wire to Hot, the other to Neutral. Insert and remove quickly - there should be a flash and power will be restored. If not, repeat until you get that flash. If you are too slow to remove the wires from the outlet after current is restore, the light gauge wire should burn out before the battery suffers damage. Be quick - be careful.

AVR Voltage Adjustment
This bulletin covers the following Champion Power Equipment models:
C46535 C41150 C41365
C46540 C41155 C75520E
C49055 C41255 C71350E
Note: Read instructions completely before performing service.
1. On the end of the generator locate the round yellow cover held on by two 7mm bolts.
Remove the two bolts and the yellow cover will come right off.
2. At approximately 7 o'clock you'll see a kidney shaped electrical component called the AVR,
which is held on by two 7mm bolts. Remove the two bolts but do not disconnect the wiring
and turn the AVR over so you can see the backside. You should see a round part coming off
the AVR, this is the capacitor. You should also see a small rectangular box with a jewelers
screw, this is your voltage adjustment screw.
3. With a flat head screw driver turn the jewelers screw counter clockwise and this will lower
the voltage. As the screw is turned back watch the volt meter to see adjustment, the
generator must be running to do this.
4. Adjust the screw until the meter reads 250 volts. On model C46540 when the toggle switch
is turned to the 120 side the volt meter should read around 130 volts. Optimum voltage is
5. If voltage does not decrease or does not hold a steady output please contact Champion at
877-338-0999 for a new AVR.
