If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

DBSI325 will not put out voltage


Most of the problems like this are due to a failure of retention of the magnetic field to allow it to build up. Search Google for methods to "flash" the field. If you have had an accident of shorting or putting excessive load on the unit, rotating diodes of a brushless generator can be blown. Of the methods of flashing fields of the generators, I have had the most success with the method using TWO light bulbs in series between the utility mains and the generator. PLEASE be careful when doing this or handling electrical equipment where high voltage is present.

What type of oil do i take for a porter cable 5250 watt electric generator?


Your generators take ordinary 10W30 motor oil.
We use these things on the job.
Don't turn engine upside down or on its side to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor

No output voltage for powermate generator


NO. the capacitor resonates with a winding it is in parallel with as part of the voltage regulation.

Recharging a brushless generator can be tricky. I have had success using two 150 watt lamps in series between the running generator and the electric utility power. Search google for this method.

My NorthStar 5500 generator head no longer produces any electrici


Specs do not mention a maximum safe rpm but the recommended shaft speed is 3600rpm. Even though it isn't a premium product I can't imagine the manufacturer would be so foolish as to design it so it breaks if that speed is exceeded by a reasonable amount for a short amount of time. The big question is what is a reasonable amount - I reckon a safety margin of 25% would be reasonable for a budget priced product and up to 40% for a premium product.

Over-revving is unlikely to do very much damage to the stator but the armature is at risk of damage and being brushless or self-energising, unless there is visible damage it is a difficult item to test without dedicated equipment.

I suggest you recheck all plugs, connections and cables and if no faults are found contact the manufacturer or dealer for advice, costs, etc...
