Gentlemen, I have an EB5000X and it starts wonderfully and runs great, however when I plug something in it shuts down the engine. BUT it is still generating power and as the engine runs down it is generating power and the lights simply go out. IF it is running and I switch the Auto run sw it also shuts down... I am wondering whether or not the voltage regulator is bad can anyone help????

Welcome to the forums! Turn off the appliance, plug it in, THEN turn the appliance on. What happens? What is the wattage of the appliance you are trying to run. Remember this unit only has 7000 watts of starting power, then settles down to 5000 watts. Is the appliance you are trying to run 120 volt or 240 volt? What is its amperage rating if not in watts?
