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

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."
