Most of the time it is either the Capacitor or AVR that has blown. Check out our videos on how to test them.
We hold a full range of Generator AVRs and Capacitors.

SOURCE: Generator runs, but does not generate electricity

Reset / tickled? There are resistors and diodes in the end of the alternators rotor (the bit in the middle that spins) If these look ok visually then change the capacitor which is a barrel shaped object usually with 4 prongs on the end. Without a capacitor the genset will not produce a voltage.

SOURCE: no electricity from generator

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.

SOURCE: Valsi Generator 7500W no output voltage

If its a Generac could be the voltage regulator or control board. If you want to go inside then disconnect the avr (voltage regulator) from the field and put 12 volts to the field slip rings with a car battery. Watch Polarity.... Yu should get about 60-80 volts out of the 115 receptacle. Plug in a light bulb and see if it lights. If it does then the field and stator are probably ok and you need to look elseware. Make sure breakers and connections are ok from the stator and receptacle.

SOURCE: 5500 generator stopped producing eletric after

First check with the dealer and see if it is still under warranty. If it is not, make sure nothing is blocking the air flow around where the control modules are located. This could cause the voltage regulator and other electronic parts to overheat. Next check the brushes and make sure they are free of any dust or build up preventing them from making contact.

If everything is OK the next thing I would do is change the voltage regulator.

Onan 5500 generator cranks but does not start flashes 3 times for service required I can put gas in carb. and it will start but still will not run


check oil level if filter has not been change it. If there is a generator problem it will self shut down to keep you from causing more problems . Check on off switch has plug on it unplug try to start ,if starts motor not problem, have generator checked. running it with switch unpluged will cause major problems. burnt computer board on my 5500 voltage problem. It was cheaper to buy new one.

Generator runs great but produces no power


On Thursday last week I had 220 amp outlet being used and a 110 amp outlet being and overloaded the generator. It turned out to be the reset breakers failed to trip and blew the capacitor. The reset breakers I would suggest replacement after 7 years very easy to do on a 5500 Valsi generator 2010 model still running and now producing electric. And of course use only regular gas non Ethanol.

I have a valsi 5500 generator, I would like to rebuild the carb I need to find out what parts I need. and lately it just started putting out 95 watts, need to figure on what it is causing it.


You may only need to give it a good cleaning. Get some "Sea Foam" carbureator cleaner Homepage Sea Foam Sales Company Simply take the carb off and clean it thoroughly with the Sea Foam product and you probably won't need any parts. Also, be sure to add a fuel stabilizer to your fuel supply. "Stabil" is a good product for this.

We have a Valsi 5500 watt generator that isn't putting enough voltage out to run everything in out small travel trailer. It runs the lights but doesnt push out enough voltage to carry the A/C, microwave,...


How long have you had this generator?
Has the generator worked on all of these loads before?
Model 5500 is a 5500 Watt generator which could easily be 5500 watts (Peak) and not continuous.

Your AC is an inductive load.
Your lights are resistive loads

An inductive load can cause issues when starting due to an increased current demand at start up that some generators cringe under. Do the lights flicker or are they stable? I'd say your diodes on your stator are working if you have light stability but you haven't provided nearly enough information for a detailed solution.

I'm sure you have enough voltage but you aren't getting enough current to run specific loads. How many watts is your AC? How many watts for your microwave? Both of these units demand a great deal of energy to run and when you place too much demand on your generator, it will choke it out and eventually, will cause damage to the generator. You may consider getting a beefier generator with a greater amount of wattage output.


Seeing these specs online and noting what you are trying to run, you have an undersized generator and need to get one that can produce a greater amount of running wattage (as well as peak wattage).

Have a VALSI 5500 watt generator that works fine but the tank has rusted out and I cant find where to purchase a new one. Can you help me find where to purchase this tank


We had problums with this one also. If you absolutely cant find a tank repair it.

A motorcycle shop in your area has no doubt had plenty failed tanks to repair. and then have it plastic coated on the inside.

The problems stem from the use of fuel with ethanol it attracts watter and dosed not work well in a gen set that spends lots of time setting.

Begin using fuel with a fuel stabiliser and keep it full, Air also has water in it.

VALSI 5,500 WATT GENERATOR WILL NOT START


All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!

Valsi Generator 7500W no output voltage


Good Luck with that...but if engine runs and there is no output voltage, that generally means that the stator needs to serviced or replaced (likely as pricey as a new genny).
