Issue with IC2 power

Question

So, my IC2 power setup currently consists of 2 Geothermal Generators and a LV solar panel. I have them both inputting into an MFE, which outputs directly into a LV-transformer, and from the LV-transformer come the wires which input into my various machines. The problem I seem to be having is that when my MFE is full it stops outputting power, but when it's emptying or filling it outputs power. Is this a bug, or am I doing it wrong?

Is your MFE by any chance set to emit a redstone signal when full? If so, the signal is probably switching the LV-transformer from step down to step up mode, switching the input side to an output side and the output sides to input sides.

Hmmmm, I believe your problem is that you are leaving the area so the chunk gets unloaded, try this : http://ftbwiki.org/Chunk_Loader I might be wrong tho.

No, this is happening when I'm in the area of my machines. Even then I have a chunk loader already running in the same room. It's not that everything is pausing, as is characteristic of an unloaded chunk, it's the fact that the MFE, despite being full on power and properly positioned is just not outputting power unless the power value is moving.

That was it. I thought I'd switched it back when I misclicked and hit the button, but obviously not. Thanks.

      Hi Forum,
       
      So here's the story, I have created a modpack that is in beta at the moment and I'm looking for beta testers to help with some bug reports and feedback.
      Feel free to download the pack and for people who are interested in joining the server then I'm more than happy to load that up as I need to test server performance and bugs.
       
      Thanks for your time to read this.

      Hello, 
      I have a Tekkit Classic server and my miner or quarry doesn't work... I've already went thru other topic here so I tried already /op [industrialCraft] and /op [BuildCraft] ...then I also tried /pex user [industrialCraft] group set Admin
      However nothing out of that worked...miner drains EU, however it doesn't dig. Any suggestions? 
      EDIT: 
      So I also tried to remove plugin PermissionsEX, no effect :/
      EDIT2:
      Found out, that AuthMe plugin does it, any way how to add fake players to AuthMe?

      I've made a nuclear reactor in multiplayer. The reactor is from big reactors, so it outputs RF. As visible on the image, I made a conversion setup but it is not working. The MFE is not getting charged at all, even though everything on the energy bridge looks fine and it's fully charged. What am I not seeing?
