Noob - Please help
« on: October 26, 2021, 06:28:36 PM »
Hi All,
Sorry if this is in the wrong place etc.

I'm trying to identify and then find a manual for the generator in the photos.

I'm hoping to make a push button start system for it. I'd like to know whats going on inside electrically.

It runs, manually started. Theres no voltage on the 'Battery Terminals' when its running so I'm assuming thats a start only 24v signal and cant be used as a charger for the battery.

Any help would be so appreciated.
Thanks,
Paul

Welcome.

Looks to be an HA2 based generator. Can you get a better picture of the generator head info tag? I have a manual for the engine but cannot make out what generator head you have. A good close up image and any other info would be helpful.

I would think it should charge the batteries. Could be something in the charging system has an issue or if it has sat for a long time may have lost it's residual magnetism. Does it produce AC voltage?

Hi, struggling to add more pictures.

The machine runs fine mechanically. It also does output 240VAC thats used to drive a few cabins.


I've added some pictures to a shared drive here.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1F9wk7MajlsqcSO0cYdJp7LM_u_3ctBaa?usp=sharing

I got the cover off the electrical box and my heart sank :(
Its a mess.
Hopefully someone has drawings or ideas on how to restore it.

Thanks.

I tried to access the shared drive but it requires permission. I sent a permission request however that works.

Hi Paul,
Pictures must be compressed to add to the Forum.

Sorry Paul. Yes your link does work, I must have read your replies in the wrong order.

Hi again Paul, I just had a quick look further up the page and this Forum has a dedicated Generator section and the second thread on the current page is discussing a H series Lister with generator.
While waiting for some help here maybe have a quick look through that section and see if there is any help. There is another generator thread running in the  Engines section but he has a different problem but is receiving help help 2 members who may be able to help you out as well. Have a read there and send these guys a PM and ask if they can help you too.
