My predator 8750 just stops producing electricity out of the blue. Engine runs like a dream but electricity just stops. Circuit breakers are fine. I turn the engine off, restart it and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I'll let it sit for a bit, start it up and outlets work again for like 20 minutes and then they stop.
Any clue why???

stator, voltage regulator
Help is appreciated.

Hi Scuba,

When materials get hot they expand. You might have a connection that fails when hot.

Check all the connections that you can find and make sure they are clean. If this is a capacitor controlled generator the cap might also be breaking down when hot.

Worst case you might have a problem with the windings.
