Question about Generac 13,000 Watt / 13,000 Watt Home Standby Generator

Open Question

My light on my generac generator is 1/2 green & 1/2 yellow now. It was all green all week. what is the problem? It is still giving me power.

Had green light since it came on Monday and had green light til tonight when I noticed it was half green and half yellow. Looked in my owners manual and nothing tells me about what light indicates. I am afraid I will lose power from the generator as I have no electricity.

SOURCE: Generac 43903 standby Generator overspeed indicator on starting

I have a generator that did the same thing. It would start and then stop within a few seconds. The more expensive generators have an oil level safety switch to prevent the engine from burning up. There is usually a wire connecting to the switch on the outside of the engine near the oil fill hole. Remove this wire and try to start the generator. If it runs without a problem then it is the switch. You need to remove the switch and take it apart carefully and clean it. There is a small float inside the assembly. When the oil runs low the float allows the switch to short to ground which kills the spark to the spark plug. Hope that helps.

Testimonial: "This is good information in the event that the low oil switch is part of the problem."

    It will turn over once or twice and stops it has a red light on where the braker panel is


    press the helpful button and follow me on Fixya for more helpful tips

    The current models of automatic standby generators will have LED indicator lights on the side compartment of the generator. A green LED light will indicate that the unit is in AUTO mode and is ready to run, or is running properly during a utility outage. The yellow LED light will indicate that maintenance is needed. The red LED will indicate either that the unit is switched to OFF or that there is an alarm detected. If a yellow or red LED are present, you will need to check the generator's control panel, as it will describe the type of maintenance needed or the alarm present. This information can be found in the owner's manual as well. You can find a copy of the owner's manual online by searching the model or serial number of the unit here

    Generac generator on auto runs weekly. light green previuosly green. now red. what causes this??


    Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Your red LED is telling you that it was 1. overloaded. 2. has low voltage 3. overheated or 4. short in the powered circuit.

    OVERLOAD LED (red): Lights up if the generator experiences
    a load greater than the rated output, low voltage, overheats or
    the powered circuit experiences a short. The output is stopped
    even though the engine keeps running.

    I do not know which of the 4 conditions caused your red light. If you have the read light with no load I would suspect low voltage from the generator / inverter. If it overheated you will also get the Red LED with no load.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa.
