Wow, you've got an ugly problem. It sounds like you already know that you have to pretty much disassemble these little buggers down to the frame to see anything inside, so I'll say what to look for:

1 - Burned wires in the part of the generator that doesn't move. This is the bit that carries the current shorted out by the mud.

2 - Burned wires in the part that does move. This is the bit that makes the magnetism that makes the electricity. There are also some diodes and MOVs tucked into the end of the plastic insulator

You're likley better off getting some other generator, sorry.

SOURCE: voltage on portable generator is running high appx 135vac

What do you consider high? If the voltage is between 115- 125 volts, it's fine.

Have a 4000 watt sportsman generator that will not produce electric i have replaced the avr what next


Could be lost exciter current. This is how to restore it - Connect 16 or 18 gauge wires to a 12 volt battery. With generator running, insert bare ends of wires into AC outlet - one 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 and output current restored. Using light gauge wires is so that if you are too slow to remove them once AC is restored. they will burn out before the battery suffers from the AC incoming. Be quick and be careful.

Onan 7000 generator runs but does not produce electric to rv


First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 6200 Watt Portable Generator voltage adjust


Usually the cause of slightly low voltage like this is that the engine is not running at full operating RPM. Find the high speed adjusting screw on the govenor linkage and adjust the engine RPM until the output is 220V - 240V

When i start the onan 5500 it takes 4 or 5 times then when it does start it runs low then high rpm then low again where do i start


Adjust the carberator. You have to do this while the engine is running and it usually takes a straight slot screwdriver. You can turn a spring loaded screw to adjust fast or slow which ever is needed.

4000 watt buffalo tools generator: Engine Starts, but after a few minutes it cuts out and stops running. No appliances plugged in, drained gas(it did sit for 6 months), oil is full, Plug is good.


Idle speed jet or passage and/or high speed jet/passage is clogged. Remove the carb and inspect and clean thoroughly, then re-install. Set idle and high spped screws approx 1 turn and tune to run smooth from there.
