Question generator killed charger, what to do??

We have a generator that seems to put out a very high current until it has a load on it. So it killed two of my transformer type chargers.
Eaton Whole House Surge Protector less than .8 and a third watt hours
Joules
2820


Not knowing what voltage it puts out, we need to know if these power surge protectors will handle it....

the gasoline generator is a Honda ex650

Hi jawnn,

The problem with your generator is in the AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator). This regulator is an electronic device that mantains the output voltage at the designed level (120V or 240V ). A surge protector is not a solution.

The AVR is located near the end bell of the generator, near the brushes . To this electronic card are attached wire from the stator and to the brushes. Normally the electronic components are covered with epoxi resin, so they are very difficult to repair and very easy to replace.

Regards.
