If your voltmeter is registering the 240v prior putting in the twist-lock plug then your have a crossed wire plug or there is a problem with the load.

If not reading the correct voltage then you have problem with the generator's alternator. Example bad regulator or a shorted main winding.

This comes from gas getting from the carb when the engine is stopped. The carb will need a good cleaning. Kawasaki has vent tubes just to avoid this when air venting gets plugged. Just saying. ..

Did you leave any gas in it as it was being stored. If so then your probably looking at dirt or varnish in the carb. It this is the case you will need to taske the carb apart and spray the inside with some carb cleaner then make sure to wipe it all out. Next time you store your generator make sure that you compleatly drain all of the fuel. If not then be sure to add some gas stabilizer.

Good luck,

Marty

There is an air leak in the seals somewhere between the carb and the intake manifold. You are getting too much air! ALL of those seals need to be changed, As the paper seals age they develop small cracks that kill the vacuum made by the engine to pull in the gas/air mixture!

I found this at http://www.championpowerequipment.com/tech-bulletins/
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.
