Are you worried your Generator is running too fast or slow?


Engines can speed up slightly as they run in. They can also slow down slightly if they need an oil change. If your generator has a voltmeter this is more obvious by the voltage output reading being a bit high or low. If the engine is slow, and needs a service, the voltage will be low. If the engine has bedded in, and running fast, the voltage will be reading a bit high. In both cases, give the engine a full service. If required adjust the engine speed, using the voltmeter to correctly set the speed.
