Call Generac @ 800-333-1322. Or go on line to Generac generator Manuals. I have seen the very model that you have on the web sight. If you call them direct they will send you as many of the manuals you need and desire. hard copies will cost you. the soft ware copies can be sent to you in a PDF file. most times for free. Good luck.

My answer:

Your Genset is made by GENERAC same as my personal 5500W home unit is. Great service and great Genset!!

I never had any problems with mine other then the Poly gas tank valve stem gasket leaked from day 1, and they replaced it no bones 100% FREE upon request. I also requested both a Service manual and an Operators Manual and they sent me both FREE of charge as well. (I had no manuals with mine either, as I bought my Genset brand new at a garage sale for $300 - great deal)

Just make sure when you call them (as with anyone seeking operator/setup manuals - that you tell them they got LOST in a recent move!) It helps - otherwise they (any company) might ask for a charge for them. Getting pretty bad out there everywhere thanks to you know who!

Call the GENERAC toll free # below anyway - regardless what it says below about the GUARDIAN brand and where to get service. You want the Install / Service manuals only.

Mount the transformer on the generator. Hard wire it into a 120 vac plug. Run wires to the module and connect to the coil on the relay. Now run the load you want to disconnect while the generator is running to the load terminals of the relay in the module.

Hello i just started my 8 kw hole house generater ran greatput my electric water heater on 26 amp draw andsmoke came out exhaust vent shut it down ran again great turned only heater on again took amp


8 kW has a 35 amp breaker on the unit. A typical hot water is 4500 watts at 240 volts = 18.75 amps on each leg. If you are measuring 26 on one side and 19 on the other it should be ok. If it is shutting down you may have a fuel problem or you may need to adjust voltage if it's too low. Which model of 8 kW is it?

Check the automatic voltage regulator .Or if you have a bad neutral connection one leg will be very high and one leg low causing damage to sensitive equiptment.

I have a 10 KW Generac Guardian Stand By withe a prwired EZ transfer swithc. Everything works except the 12 volts battery charger. What could be the problem. Only have three weeks innstalled.


Your generator is equipped with a battery trickle
charger that is active when your unit is set up for
automatic operation. The trickle charger is
designed to help extend the life of your battery by
maintaining the battery when the unit is
not running.
you will need to review which circuit bord controls this and have that board replaced or serviced some of these gen heads have this built in and it will be the rectifier in the gen it self it will be a black 1x1x3/8 inch with a mounting hole in the center and 4 lug post for the wires replace this and your issue should be solved but consult your dealer for witch unit you have as to a control board external or the built in rectifier hope this helps.
