Can anyone help locate the cooling fan capacitor for a ‘95 WB? Will it be in the generator mounted box with the circuit breakers and voltage regulator or perhaps at the fan motor? I see nothing obvious, so far. Addressing no AC voltage, fan not running. I have the 2.5amp fan switch breaker OTW as I believe it is soft. Powertech installation.

I read one bloke stated that the capacitors are ‘right by the motor,’ but some folks call an engine a motor and an electric motor a motor.

Thanks

I will post details of my successful experience when I have it.

On the squirrel cage fan on the genny rad in the side compartment you will see a 4x4 metal box,inside that box you will find the elusive cap.

Found it! Yes, it was in the metal enclosure at the front side, base of the radiator. WW Electric in Oshkosh, WI tested it to be good at 5uF that is, 5-micro Farads, the measure of capacitance. It’s a $9 item. Photos below.

Default Basler AVC63-4 AVR replaced

I replaced the generator voltage regulator located in the breaker box on top of the (Powertech) generator with a new unit. Four leads identified as F+, F-, 3, and 4. The leads connect inside the box. The voltage was adjusted while the generator was running by adjusting the pot on the back of the regulator, which means the adjustment was made before the regulator was reattached to the back of the box with it’s 2-screws/nuts. The generator works well, again.

I purchased the regulator, new from General Power Limited, located in Florida. $272+ shipping.

The instructions for the regulator give information for exciting the unit should it not initially function, but that was not required in this case.

Photos attached of the new regulator and the nature of the connections in the box enclosure. Removing the generator engine intake muffler made access better.
