If this is one of the big "taco cart" portables you need to check that the vent on the gas cap is open when you're running the engine. In the center of the gage on the gas cap is a little knurled knob, turn it counter clockwise (lefty loosey), about a half turn or so and run the generator.
If that doesn't solve your problem add to it here, otherwise please give me a rating I'm trying to build a little credibility here and could use the help.

Sounds like Generator mode switch should be "ON".

SOURCE: How can the battery charger be changed?

Yes this is a very simple job to do. there are only 2 small bolts holding it in. Make sure the generator is in the off position and removed the 2- 5amp fuses in the transfer switch for N1 and N2 Use a fuse puller designed for this (you can get at home depot or lowes for around $9-$10) not a pair of pliers or screwdriver, etc... there is 240VAC on these fuses.. N1 and N2 are what ultimately feed the transformer in the generator which steps the voltage down to 24-26 VAC and feeds the battery charger. Other than that its fairly simple, let me know if you have any more questions.

If you installed this 2 months ago, then you are still under warranty. You need to contact Generac directly before you try to fix yourself and void warranty. Not trying to offend, just being practical.

SOURCE: RPM/voltage fluctuation on Guardian Primepact 50G

The voltage regulator board on this unit is notorious for failing. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself with basic tools and a voltmeter to set the output. The part is about 200 dollars. Good luck

    20KW Guardian Generac does not produce 12 volts to run engine


    The problem is that the printed circuit board inside the generator draws a little current from the battery even when the generator is not running. Over the course of a few days this can make the battery weak enough to be unable to get recharged by the built in running charger which results in not enough power to run the electronic governor on the generator. Usually the spark plugs will work even with a fairly low battery.

    Most of the Generac generators come with a built in trickle charger that runs off of the transfer switch load terminals. If your built in charger isn't doing the job it's either broken or you have the wrong sort of battery installed in the generator.
