Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator 160 causes generator to shutdown but no breakers thrown
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi. Kent there is a high load/ draw on the generator motor that is over powering the diesel. It's not a short if it went on long enough he'd have an over heat blown breaker. Second if the motor started is bad and the motor draws are high the heat build up in the motor will cause issues.
Without doing some detailed trouble shooting on site it's tough to determine the cause. That said I'd ck the capacitors/condensers first.
