  1. Remove the rectangular snap-fit cover from end bell
  2. Start generator making sure it's at rated RPM
  3. Using volt meter test brush terminals.
  4. Use red+ lead on top or right brush black is - negative
  5. should see approx. 75 volts DC
If no voltage, need to flash with 12 volts DC same polarity as above, for 5 seconds

If I turn the ac dc switch while what dose it do to the wielder. Now im not getting any juice to wield .thank you


Changes between AC and DC voltage at the electrodes.



Q: What Type Of Stick Welder Works Best For All-Around Use?

A: A welder with an AC/DC output, whether its an electric arc machine like Miller\'s Thunderbolt or a gas engine drive like Miller\'s Bobcat.

DC welding offers advantages over AC for most Stick applications, including: easier starts; fewer arc outages and sticking; less spatter/better looking welds; easier vertical up and overhead welding; easier to learn "how to weld" and a smoother arc. DC reverse polarity (electrode positive) provides about 10 percent more penetration at a given amperage than AC, while DC straight polarity (electrode negative) welds thinner metals better.

Q: Does An AC Output Have Any Advantages?

A: Yes, if you need to weld on material that\'s become magnetized from friction, such as when hay, feed or water constantly rub against a steel part. A DC output won\'t work because of "arc blow," where the magnetic field blows the molten filler metal out of the weld puddle. Because an AC output alternates between polarities, it enables you to weld magnetized parts.

Replacement power supply - can i convert AC to DC output connector?


I'm not clear on the four pins of the DC power supply for the speakers. Do you think there two different voltages needed??? It's not worth trying to convert your ac power supply/ It would take a few parts and you will not end up with 18 vdc. You can purchase a 18 v dc adapter for as little as 15.00.

Amp turns on but puts out no sound except for faint noise which dies out after a few seconds.


It sounds like a defective/incorrect AC-to-DC adapter may have caused your problem. These adapter come with different output voltages, AC or DC output and different amperage ratings. AC-to-DC adapters list the polarity of the DC voltage as it relates to the DC power plug and you must match both the devices voltage and power requirements. As for the amp...not working on batteries either, I would suspect output transistors or IC.

What or how does the battery get its charge


Most bike have an alternator driven off the left-hand crankshaft shaft.
This turns with the engine, producing the AC charging power.
This power then runs through a voltage regulator, that both converts the the AC voltage into DC voltage, and regulates the amount of voltage flowing into the remaining electrical system.

Now, you did do the first step correctly.
DC volt meter to battery terminals to see if you get 13-14 volts DC with engine running.
Next, locate voltage regulator and unplug connector for wires coming FROM the regulator, and hook up the DC voltmeter.
With engine running, you should have 13-14 (or so) DC volts.

If not, locate and unplug wires coming from alternator to regulator, and hook up AC (note change from DC to AC) voltmeter.
With engine running, should have AC voltage (this could be 20-40 volts or more).

This will let you know where the problem is, and what needs to be replaced.

My computer a 1905-s301 will not run on just ac power


It means either the AC adaptor has failed or the DC socket on the laptop is broken. Check the AC Adaptor's output DC voltage using a multimeter first.

Engine runs fine but probably overloaded the generator. Is it just brushes or coil too.


Site unseen i would say its neighter the brushes or the coil . And more the likely the problem is with a transformer converting the DC off the generater to AC for your output . If the engine runs ok and the armature in the generater spins ok and you don;t have a million hours on it should work at least somewhat . Try testing the output on the AC side see what you get for AMPS you will need a muilty meter set to AC amps

My Rm 250 wont spark need to know the volts from stator to cdi plug. Got brand new cdi, stator , rotor and pick up coil but it still wont spark.


The Voltage From The Stator To The CDI Should Be Around 40 Volts(AC) At Cranking Speed. Be Sure Your Meter Is Set For (AC) Not (DC). The CDI Changes The (AC) Input Voltage To (DC) Output Voltage To The Primary Terminal At The Coil. An Electrical Shock Hazard Exist If Stator Voltage Is Checked With Engine Running. Always Perform This Test At Cranking Speed (R.P.M.) For SAFETY. 120 Volts (AC) Can Be Present With Engine Running.

Powermate PM0496500.02 No voltage output


Here is a simple test to check field and other wiring. With engine off apply 12v ac 1 amp to 110v outlet plug on generator. This will energize the field windings and should cause the armature to produce dc voltage at the brushes and produce a nice magnet. If there is a short in the field or broken wire or shorted capacitor there will be no dc reading at the brushes. . This test is the opposite of what actually occurs when the engine is running. That is the armature produces a magnet fed thru the windings, regulator and brushes. If dc voltage is present at the burshes, remove 12v ac and start engine to check for output. enjoy
