JUST A FEW NOTES ON QUICK FIXES


NOTE DO NOT USE THIS ON A INVERTER GEN SET

Field Flashing Using a 110 volt Source

To re-energize a generator it must be fed electricity at the correct voltage and cycle rate while it is running. This means power must be available from household power or a borrowed generator. Most generators are 110 VAC 60 cycle, a few are 220 VAC 60 cycle, and some have dual 110 VAC 60 cycle armatures and windings (which when combined produce 220 VAC). But as all of them have 110 VAC receptacles, they can be energized in exactly the same manner.

A device must be built to connect the power source to the dead generator. Each end must have 3 wire male plugs, two wires of 12 to 16 gauge about 6 feet long, and 3 light bulb fixtures are required. The white wire is connected from the right side (holding it) or left side (looking at face) of the male plugs. The positive (black) wire must have 3 light bulb fixtures wired in series, so electricity flows through each light bulb from one end to the other. This is most easily accomplished by installing 3 porcelain light fixtures on a board and connecting them in series, but any expedient method that does not short out the wires may be employed in an emergency. Put 60 watt light bulbs in each fixture.

NOTE USE ALL PLASTIC PLUGS

There is no need for a 3rd (green) wire in this arrangement: 3 wire male plugs are used to simplify getting the polarity correct when under duress and pressure, nothing more.

You will remember that wall sockets are "hot" and have female connections, and when you plug in an appliance or cord that all exposed connections disappear or are covered. That is to avoid the hazard of a self-induced hair raising experience known variously as "electric shock therapy" or electrocution. But the device you have just constructed has male plugs at both ends! Obviously caution is mandatory here, and things must be done in the correct sequence. But there is no alternative to this method that I know of, so you simply must be careful, keep the rug rats away, don't stand in a puddle of water, and tell the spouse to pray instead of scream.

Fire up the engine on the dead generator and warm it up until it runs smoothly with the choke off: it isn't under load yet, but it will be. Then fire up the borrowed generator. Plug your contraption into the dead generator, then into the spare generator or household current. The three 60 watt bulbs will start flashing: when they are perfectly in sync, carefully pull the plug from the spare generator, then the other generator which has just been re-energized.  DO NOT TOUCH THE EXPOSED ENDS OF THE PLUGS - THEY ARE HOT!

Using a voltage tester, you will find the "dead" generator is now putting out 110 VAC power AT THAT SOCKET. If you have a 220 VAC generator, test the other 110 VAC socket: if it is dead, energize it in the same way as outlined above. Then both 110 volt armatures will be putting out 110 VAC 60 cycle power in sync, and combine to produce 220 VAC as well.

Yes, the system described above works, and works well. Using this technique will enable you to salvage a useless generator at very little cost. And done with care it need not be a hair raising experience -- quite handy for those of us lacking same.

 


ALSO FLASH WITH A 9 VOLT BATTERY WORKS LIKE ON WACKER BRAND.

 

 


Field Flashing Using an Electric Drill

This tip comes from the Briggs & Stratton Customer Education Department. As an alternative to flashing a rotor winding with a battery applied to the brushes, an electric drill may be used. Follow these steps to flash the generator:

  • Plug the electric drill into the generator receptacle. (Cordless drills do not work)

     
  • If the drill is reversible, move the direction switch to the forward position.

     
  • Start the generator

     
  • While depressing the trigger on the drill, spin the drill chuck in reverse direction. This will excite the field and the generator will now produce electricity. If spinning the chuck one direction does not work, try spinning the chuck in the other direction as you may have the reverse switch positioned backwards.

Use caution not to get your hand or other materials caught in the chuck. As soon as the field is excited, the generator will produce power and the drill will turn on.

The reason this works is because the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backwards. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor windings, which is fed back through the trigger, cord and into the generators receptacle. From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field, which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor winding the rotor has been flashed.
