hi have a kipor gs 1000 moter fine over light on no power
Gday - you have a great little unit my unit has been running for 8 years for 3 to 4 hours most days when the sun does not shine - I have this problem and it was solved by replacing the inverter unit ...inside the case- they are not repairable - suggest you look for 1 on ebay and a competent handy man can replace it PROVIDED he takes his time - currently available for about $350 AUD - good luck - if you want to sell it give me a another post

I am really sorry that I can not help you. I can only say what happened with my purchase of the Kipor and that I had no luck when trying to get it repaired.

My kipor kge 1000 starts but stops after a minute showing low oil light even though oil level is ok , any help please
I haven't had this problem but perhaps the message isn't getting through to the oil switch. I don't know how the message gets through but I would try shock treatment bumping the genny or applying a b...it of air pressure through the oil filler to try to free a blockage (if thats the problem). I would drain the oil again and when empty try above again.
I have a Kipor KDE 16ss and it's not starting and keeps bringing oil light on, any help out there please?
I have changed the oil on my kipor ig 1000 generator and the oil checklight is still lighting up when i start the generator. I have filled the generator with the recommendend 0.25 litres of 15w40 engine oil. Help please.
Sounds like either the oil pressure if the gen is very old, but more likely a faulty oil level switch.
If you think everything else is OK - I would keep using it. ...
Hi im Wayne I have a kipor gs 1000 that is spilling petrol out of over flow pipe an stalling engine when starting can you help me?
Gosh I really have no idea. I do have a friend that may know. But I won't see him till next week.
No help to you now I'm sorry. I hope others more savvy than myself can come to your aid. ...
I had this problem when I haven't used the genny for a while. First time I took the genny apart but now I've learnt no need for that. The float sticks down when the fuel in the bowl evaporates. I h...ave fixed it each time by rocking the genny side to side to free the float. Obviously you colud tap the bowl with a screwdriver. In any event if all that fails you can take the bowl off without dismantling the genny and free the float.
Where is the over load switch on the generator because the overload alarm is on,
The overload alarm means that the gennie might be overloaded... ? Reducing the load would probably result in the load being reduced and the overload warning not being initiated...... Just a thought....! lolololol
My kipor 1000 cant start up in start mode only in run mode why please ?
I also have the 1000 and I'm assuming they're the same you should have an on off switch and if it starts up in run that's fine to move the lever in the other direction is to engage the choke mine also...will not start with the choke on after it has warmed up check your book to see what could be the problem I'm at a loss
The plug keeps oiling up. Any ideas?
I am on the road now full time and I use my generator for 2 hours everyday and I have notice that I have to clean the plugs regularly. I soak them overnight in a bit of petrol. I also has tried a high...er octane fuel but with minimal results. It's possible a higher viscosity oil may help I will be bringing up this issue at my next service good luck
Hi I have a kipor GS1000
It starts but the overload light comes on without any load at all and it will not deliver any power. Any ideas?
Sorry Barb, I don't know what would cause this. I guess that you do not have anything plugged into the generator. Just a few thoughts, check the oil level although the generator should cut out or no...t start if the oil level is low (Oil warning light is the bottom light and the overload light is the middle one). Check that the fuse has not blown. Other than that, the manual suggests return to service center. Good luck.
Hi Barb check the issues fordnl raised above, I haven't seen this issue either. Sorry can't help on this one.
It should run happily with no load. As fordnl states, be sure to check for a blown fuse. Besides that, my guess would be that you have a fault somewhere and a visit to a service centre is in order.
I have a ford transit motor home with 1 solar panel on the roof and everything running off the 12v house battery. Waco frjdge, tv, lights etc. Normally everything is O.K. but if we sit for 2 or 3 days the panel can,t keep the power up to the fridge, especially if overcast. Know nothing about generators, but am looking at a small one to charge the battery when needed. What do I need?? Is this a reasonable solution??? Thanks for any help.
The GS1000 offers only 5 amps from its 12VDC outlet. Depending on the capacity of your battery and your rate of usage, this may not be able to keep up. Pairing this generator with a decent quality (...C-TEK, etc) 10-20 amp charger would be a bit more practical.
Yes as Marshall stated paired with a good quality charger, I use 21amp charger, I can charge a deep cycle battery and run an 80l waeco fridge simultaneously with my kipor. I've had it now for 3 years without a fault, hasn't even needed a spark plug.
Thanks for your help..
Can a 1kva run a cetec 25 amp hour battery charger?
I have just purchased a kipor 1kva old type red in colour off an old mate.I am having problems starting it.I started it for the first time yesterday,it run well for about 2 min & then cut out.I have cleaned the plug to no avail.I have purchased a new plug fingers crossed.Could it be the breather on the fuel cap
G'day I'm not familiar with the earlier models but you could try loosen the fuel cap, usually it takes a bit of time for the air lock to build up (5-10mins) but try it and see how you go, also check low oil cut off switch.
My Kipor GS1000 Series 2 suddenly stopped producing AC power. Motor still runs normally.
The only advice I could give is that I once overheated my generator by not keeping it ventilated enough. It did the same thing, but once it cooled down it was ok again. Probably doesn't help you if yo...urs is ongoing. The control panel comes of quite easily, maybe just check everything behind there (not when it running obviously) and see how you go.
If it has the overload light illuminated then likely the inverter is u/s thats what happened to mine
