Honda Mmd 5000 Watt Generator W/ Engine Ngk 6000H - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

you need to tie into the 220 voltage at you breaker panel... 5000 watts will barely power your heater. you will not be able to power it direct as it needs low voltage for the control... but I am not an expert

7 horsepower is approx 5150 Watts so the compressor would be taking this power while running. On startup however the compressor can take a surge of upto 3 or 4 times this power so the generator wouldn't be able to supply this demand . In any case it's not advisable to run a compressor off a generator unless the generator is high powered, 20KVA or greater for 7hp.

it may be running far to fast, just slow it down a little
how did you get this reading,,,on load or off load???
if off load hook up a light bulb and take another reading,,if its pulled the volts back down thats fine,,,if not plug in to the geny some thing thats close to its full load,,,"not more than this" now take the reading,,,
if still high lower the reves till its just 120v on full load
mind you,,,5000watts? thats a big un!!!!

If the doides have a number on them, goto and cross reference them to a good number. Then you can find a dealer on the web site also.

you probably have either a bad capacitor or more likely a short stator winding due to previous overloading

Verify that the double gang circuit breaker is good on both sides. Check for loose wire on breaker or receptacle.

If it's on a Ryobi Generator then it should be a real Honda Engine. It's possible that it's a knock off or was replaced with one. If you bought it new from a reputable source then it's real, if it's used or came from an offshore source for a really low price then it's a good possibility that it's a kkoxk off. In all honesty, from my experience they do a great job with the knock off engines & they're usually reliable and last a normal life span similar to a real name brand.

Either way, that mechanical Issue Remains, I'm assuming you're refering to the valve being stuck and basically keeping the engine locked up and not allowing it to the over when attempting to start it. Sounds likely. Did you take the spark plug out and turn it over to see if it'll turn over at all to ensure it's not just totally locked up? My suggestion would be to Remove the valve cover and spark plug so that you can see the valvetrain in action when(if so) it is turning over and observe it to see if your valve theory is correct!

Thanks and good luck my friend, see the infinity below please, have a great day!

The reduced atmospheric pressure at high altitude means the standard carburettor settings will not allow sufficient fuel to flow for efficient running.
The dealer or manufacturer should be able to provide details of alternative settings - the jet sizes are usually increased a few points for every 5000 ft above sea level.
The cooler temperatures experienced at high altitude would probably change the engine oil specification to a lighter or thinner grade.
