|Re: Honda EM500 Generator by Carl|
I have an EM500 that I have never been able to get working properly. It starts and runs fine, but only produces about 30 volts AC. As an Australian model, this should nominally be 240 volts ac. I've checked both the rotor and stator windings, the exciter diode bridge and all the wiring and circuit breakers: everything checks out fine. Any ideas anyone? My thought at the moment is that it may have an incorrect pilot-light fitted. Some generators use the current through this bulb as part of their voltage regulation scheme, and the wrong one might cause these symptoms. If anyone knows the correct voltage/current/wattage ratings of the bulb I would like to hear from them; I don't know what else to try.
