Having difficulties locating cause of following problems which display as follows:
Genset starts easily from cold and will run endlessly on low load. The warmer it gets the less load it will take. Initially it will take fridge, charger
, water heater
- after 30 mins or so switching water heater
, fridge or kettle (always does it) kills the genset.
After operating temperature reached, turn genset off and it will not restart and has to be left 3-4-5 hours to cool sufficiently to restart. In the interim it sounds as though it is frying to start on two cylinders. It will however continue to run so long as load not too heavy - which would suggest it is not overheating
I have an earlier post re overheating
which was eventually traced to the head
being choked with a jelly like substance. The head
and heat exchanger
were taken off, blasted clean and that's Ok although I think it is running hotter than the temp gauge indicates (showing 60-70c which is below the 80c I thought was normal). Mechanic
Ideas or advice welcome please.
