Generators / Dead st generator
« on: January 27, 2007, 11:51:28 PM »
I started my 12.5 kw st gen. head for the first time today and it seems dead. The red light does not burn and the panel meter is on zero. I removed the dogbox cover and checked the lugs and got 1.5 volts one way and 3.2 volts the other. I removed the back mesh cover and checked the brushes and they are all rubbing as normal. It is wired for 220v operation. I bougnt it from Muhammed at Motors, Generators and stuff and it is a Kawazi brand gen. Any ideas? ???

She is trying to break into tv with her video on permaculture, self sustience etc. She has also bought a Lister engine and could probably use the boards advice.  Check her out! ;)
