  • RD8000 low voltage

    I have a 8000 watt generator that has run less than 8 hours and then set for several months without running. When I restarted it I found that it was only producing 75.1 V.
    Any suggestions

    Measured where and by what means? At the receptacles or at the stator terminal block? DVM or analog meter? Proper engine speed (3600 rpm) verified?

      I used a DVM checked for being close to accurate on household current. Voltage was checked at the outlet. I have no way to check the RPM but did monitor while speeding engine up to max rpm, with only .1 v increase. Could it need to be flashed? (been doing some research online)

        If it needed to be flashed, you'd have zero (or dang near zero) volts. You need to get it to an ASC for troubleshooting, as proper troubleshooting requires monitoring various voltages inside the generator head.
