Hello Peter, if you look further down this page, 'Barb' had the same problem a couple of years ago and some suggestions were made then. I don't know if she resolved the problem though. Cheers.

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

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.

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.

Can a 1kva run a cetec 25 amp hour battery charger?

Marshall

Assuming you have a MXS25, your charger will ask almost 3 amps from your generator. The GS1000 can provide that, but won't leave you much headroom for anything else.

Id reckon yes mate, I can run a 21 amp charger and an 80l waeco simultaneously.

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.
Good luck
