Question Nikota Generator

Am helping a friend with a Generator Problem. It's a Chineese Honda Clone. Nikota 3500. The problem is the unit will make stated voltage of 115v and 230V in a no load condition but will only handle a load of about 200 watts. Anymore than that and the power will go out. Test this with a adjustable flood light. Works on low fine 150w medium 300 watt starts to go dim 500 watt goes out. bring it back to 150w and the power comes back up. Tuff to figure out. Any clues?? Thank you

Sorry, I don't have any suggestions. Those chinese generators aren't known for reliability even new out of the box. Getting a wiring schematic may prove to be near impossible and when you do, it's liable to be full of errors in my experience. The best chance of figuring it out is probably to contact the company or a dealer of the product if there still are any and hopefully they will have some literature you can reference. It could be bad windings, contacts, regulator, maybe diodes.
