AVR Voltage Adjustment

This bulletin covers the following Champion Power Equipment models:

C46535 C41150 C41365

C46540 C41155 C75520E

C49055 C41255 C71350E

Note: Read instructions completely before performing service.

1. On the end of the generator locate the round yellow cover held on by two 7mm bolts.

Remove the two bolts and the yellow cover will come right off.

2. At approximately 7 o'clock you'll see a kidney shaped electrical component called the AVR,

which is held on by two 7mm bolts. Remove the two bolts but do not disconnect the wiring

and turn the AVR over so you can see the backside. You should see a round part coming off

the AVR, this is the capacitor. You should also see a small rectangular box with a jewelers

screw, this is your voltage adjustment screw.

3. With a flat head screw driver turn the jewelers screw counter clockwise and this will lower

the voltage. As the screw is turned back watch the volt meter to see adjustment, the

generator must be running to do this.

4. Adjust the screw until the meter reads 250 volts. On model C46540 when the toggle switch

is turned to the 120 side the volt meter should read around 130 volts. Optimum voltage is

121.8 volts.

5. If voltage does not decrease or does not hold a steady output please contact Champion at

877-338-0999 for a new AVR.

Wiring of an electrical contactor


Hi,

I'm an electrician and would like to help you out.

Unfortunately, you're real short on details for this question. There are many types of contactors that work to operate all kinds of loads. Basically, a contactor allows a switch of one voltage to operate a light on another voltage or system - or allows a relatively low current switching device or momentary contact push button to operate a much larger current device.

What are you trying to do (provide as much detail as possible)?

What is the control type (push button, switch, sensor, etc.) and voltage (24V, less than 120V more than 120V)? What is the load device (light, motor, heater), voltage (120, 240 single phase 3 phase) and current (in amps)?

Is this a contactor or a starter (starters have overload relay blocks under the contactor)? What size is the contactor? Is there a listing for amps? Does it have a NEMA number - like "NEMA SIze 00"? Or a horsepower rating? What is the voltage rating of the coil?

I have craftsmen 19.2 volt tools while using the electric sander my batteries have died and when i put them in the charger the green indicator light comes on saying they are fully charged , when in reality...


It sounds like your charger is faulty. Try to measure the voltage of the batteries. If the nominal (workingh voltage of the batteries are 19,2 volt, then they should invrease to about 22 volt while in the charger. If the voltage does shoot up when the charger is on, maybe even to 25 volts, (which should turn the green light on) the new battries are dead!
It happens!
The other possibility is that the batteries are OK & fully charged!
But!
Your sander is damaged. Again, try & measure the voltage in the sander, before & after you switch it on. A large drpop in voltasge can indicate the sander drawing too much current. Also try them in another machine if you can.

I have a Jenn-Air Model # JER8885QCS range which is 3 years old. The bottom oven coil is not heating up. When I replaced the coil, I noted the old one was burned in one spot & melted apart. However,...


First off, check to see if it is still under warranty. You will need the Model #, and Serial # before you talk to the factory. The unit is either single phase (2 separate 120v circuits) or 3 phase, (3 separate 120v circuits) To check voltage properly you CANNOT check voltage to ground. You have to check wire to wire. you will get a reading of 208, or 240 volt. On a 3 phase, you need to check all 3 wires to each other, and MUST come up with either 208, or 240v between ALL wires.

I have a question, why there are 2 voltage in American market? where uses 110v, and where uses 250v? We are a manufacturer of power cords , power supply cords, we really want to know the difference ....


110V is our common household current and 220v is used where heavier voltage is needed, like ovens, stoves, clothes dryers, air conditioners, electric water heaters, arch welders, etc.

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

it should be a 6 volt, 1.3 amp hour battery. you can get them at batteries plus. best bet is to take the old one with you to the store to ensure that it fits.

Maxtor Personal Storage Unit 3200 - Model U01E100


it makes no difference how old the drive is, unless you transfer the same amount of content everyday and can chart and predict. It  might help to wrap your mind around the actually capacity and extent of files you trasfer and use. If that drive is a 200GB....1 gigabyte is roughly 1 cd and a half. A compact disc can hold 700MB, or gauge it to like a ipod.  So if youre possibly transferring say 2GB per day, you will reach the max of the drive in 3 months?

2GB X 90 days=180GB

If you are using graphic applications, or video...you may want to look towards a 320 GB or 500GB as things only get larger with current computers........Just 3 years ago, who knew what a gigabyte was? Now we own drive in upwards to 1TB ( terabyte ).


keep me posted..
