Default Reset for Generator???

We had left a fan on in the boat (3200 Maxum SCR) and when we got back the fan was off andreceptacle reset button had to be reset but we didn't figure that out right away. When we were out we went to use the generator...could figure out why it would not send power to the boat. Noticed the reset on the receptable...however, when we started the genny again we still did not get power to the boat...is there another reset somewhere to get power back from the generator to the boat??? It was showing 120...then 2. Found the receptable reset button had popped, hit reset and tried again...then it showed 2 and no power to the boat....any ideas???? Generator starts fine...water going in and out like it should....

sounds like you have a short someplace...your going to have to do some research here and find out why the breaker is tripping...it means there is something causing an overload condition....start unplugging things until you find out what it is that's causing the breaker to trip...it could be loose wiring...I had an outlet getting really hot..took the outlet apart and found the wires were barely screwed into the outlet.....

Nope...We found out that the fan had tripped the reset and once we had reset it everything was fine that way. We hooked up an outside generator and plugged the boat into it and everything worked. So I think something was tripped in the generator or in the hookup between the generator and the electrical panel in the boat....but can't find a reset on the boat for the generator power or a reset on the generator

Hello again....Just letting you know we found the problem. I emailed Westerbeke who sent us a downloadable troubleshooting guide which was excellent. The problem was a capacitor. We changed it and it works great! Thought you might like to know what the solution was...

Guys this is a 5 year old post and the OP has not posted since then.

You may get a better response with a new post.

Yep having the document is great as well as hearing it resolved the issue.

If you click on the persons profile you can see the last time they posted.

If it's been a long time slim chance they been here.
