Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, thank you for requesting me.
When you plug the light bulb in, does the engine slow down, also, or does the voltage just drop?
I also forgot to ask - did this unit get wet?
If you are getting voltage drop with no change in engine speed, your voltage regulator is most likely bad.
But this can also mean a problem in the generator windings - that is not something you would be able to test for, as it reuires some very expensive equipment.
