 Yamaha Generator problem

Guys I think I may have messed up my portable Yahmah generator. I tried to plug it into a house receptacle thinking I could back feed into the circuit when the power went out the other day. The motor kind of bogged down and now I can't get any AC power out of the receptacle. The reset does not seem to be popped. Could I have burned up a relay or something? Can these things be fixed.

 Yamaha Generator problem

8x56mn,

I'm not at all familiar with your particular generator.


It's highly unlikely that you did any real damage to the thing. It sounds as though you had more draw on the house circuit than your generator was designed to handle. This would have tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse.

Have you checked all of the breakers and/or fuses?

If you have a manual for your generator, it should tell you where to find these safety overload devices.

What is the rated output of your generator?

If you have a model number, I might be able to help you identify and locate these safety devices.

Joel

8x56mn,

I'm assuming that you have a YAMAHA Generator. Is that correct? Is it possible that you misspelled it in your opening post?

If so, you can purchase owner's manuals for $15.00 for all Yamaha models.

You can get a service manual for $55.00

 Yamaha Generator problem

First, off, although you don't say so, I would hope you flipped the main service breaker off before you tried to light up the generator.

If not, you were powering the entire grid, including any poor linesmen who may have been working on the lines at the time.

Such an overload should have, as Joel mentioned, blown a fuse or breaker on either the generator or the house's wiring before doing any damage.

If the breaker is popped it may not seem so, sometimes you have to completely flip it off, then back on before it will go on again. If this does not work the breaker may be defective and just not resetting itself.

Best of luck.

 Yamaha Generator problem

If this is a ground fault receptacle or circuit it may have a reset on the receptacle itself or on another receptacle in the circuit. Depending on code there and when the house was built your receptacles outside or near the outside probably are ground fault circuits.

Adding to Murf's concern, are you having power on the male end of a cord that could be unplugged while the generator is running making a live circuit easy for anyone like a child to get shocked or even killed on?

Hope you well. kt

I'll just add to Murf. I hope you pulled the main breaker.

Many times there is a reset button on the small generators themselves seperate from the breakers. Check there for a small button and be prepared to push it really hard.

You may have blown one or more of the diodes in the doide pack which are normally easily accessible from the end of the generator opposite the engine. They're usually behind a smallish access door. My Generac-brand pack ran me $35.

Well I took the unit to the dealer to let him figure it out. Just to clarify, yes I did pull the house feed dissconnect. It has nothing to do with the house breakers as I can't get any power from the generator with somthing plugeed into it. I believe the breaker on the generator is reset. Anyway thanks for all the comments, will wait and see what the dealer has to say.

Well guess when it read
"out of the receptacle."
would have been good to ask which receptacle. Wish you well. kt

Well dealer just called and said he couldn't find anything wrong and output is fine. Just to clear up any confusion, the generqator only produces 110v. So now I have no idea what went wrong.
