How old is the fuel? The carburetor likely needs to be cleaned from gummy residue. Check this video for step-by step. You will need 8mm and 10mm sockets to take off the air filter housing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FRjw61RCgk

Generac troubleshooting


Check that there is not a switch to activate the panel. Next, there is a fuse for the outlet panel as well or a circuit breaker. Check that. If all of that is good you will have to put a meter on all of the wiring points from beginning to end and find out where the voltage stops. Then you have found the component that went bad.
