Mase generator

Recently on starting my Mase 15 3.5 generator the excitation coil overheated and failed. I re wired the stator locally. On restarting I stopped immediately as the coil was overheating again within 3 seconds and engine under load exactly as first time before reaching full rpm. I have checked all readings in the manual and they are ok. Is the only probability VCR as there is no info on HOW to test it in the manual?

Re: Mase generator

Where are you on the planet? Welcome, btw. General location in your profile or signature line are always helpful in this regard.

I have a Mase as well. I've contacted Mase North America in FL and received pretty good help over the years. I have to say, they don't have the best bedside manner, especially the guy with the Italian accept that really knows his stuff. Maybe it's an ESL problem. However, they've always pointed me in the right direction. Ultimately, knock on wood, I've never had failure, more maintenance and parts sourcing issues.

Re: Mase generator

Everyone I know with a high rpm generator has had troubles. Everyone I know with a low rpm one hasnít or has had simple stuff easily fixed.
Got rid of a lombardini and replaced it with a Northern lights. Best move ever.
