Question about Generac Guardian Ultra Source 15,000 Watt Portable Generator #04582

Open Question

Electrician said no load idle too high. Putting out too many hertz. How can I adjust it? Is there a governor? It's the generac ultra source 15kw 04582

Also when I turn on idle control switch, idle doesn't change at all. Then when I shut it off (idle control), rpm's jump up and then machine shuts down. What's happening?

SOURCE: dont have 12 volts to start switch generac guardian ultra source

Have you checked the fuse? Mine keeps blowing the fuse (located on the back of the control panel) with each startup and shutdown or use of idle control.

SOURCE: Fuse blows repeatedly

The auto speed control is failed. Keep it manual and see how it does...It will run at full throttle even when no load is running. Then fix the throttle control when able.

How to set up governor for Generac GN-220 motor


The circuit board controller is monitoring the engine rpm and frequency and thus controls the frequency, via the governor actuator, or stepper motor as you say. You can't adjust it. I doubt this is the problem it sounds like either engine is not delivering HP, or there is a stator short causing excessive load / current draw bogging the unit down, incorrect wiring of the stator output. Ha someone taken the stator output leads off the breaker? check the stator resistance and shorts to ground.

Generac 40kw single phase generator starter engages after 30sec of running


For the over voltage there is an adjustment on the control board.
Should be tested with a load something plugged in.
The hertz might just come on when under load and adjusted too.
If you need more give a model number and whether it is 13kw or 40kw.

Need adjustment procedure for a Generac Centurion generator, carb and regulator under full load


Before you adjust anything, suggest you verify gas line for proper pressure and importantly volume. Pressure for gas should be 5 to 7 inches and propane 11 to 14 inches W.C. Also make sure the line to the generator is sized properly and the gas meter is a high volume unit (if NG). 90% we find the problem with generator sunder load that otherwise are fine are fuel related. Good luck.

I have a generac 22kw model QT02224anan that will run for a few minutes then shut down , then the over speed led is lit. It only happens when it is under load or during a power outage. it goes through...


its possible the overspeed is set to sensitive. or your rpm are to high. these are preset in the factory as a safety, check your manual to ensure your rpm speed is in the pre set area. generators will do this under load when you have a big load on them or take a load off. the governor will some times over compensate causing it to trip on overspeed.

Ginne stalls under load


Likely that your governor has creeped out of tolerance. Very common with Emerald line of generators. Try to borrow, if not already have one, a multimeter that is able to read frequency and voltage. At no load, frequency should be 62 or 63 hertz. At full load, frequency is going to be around 57-58 hertz. Voltage at no load should be 127 or so, full load should drop down to around 115 give or take. Adjust governor for faster engine operation for low voltage / frequency, slow down for too fast frequency or high voltage (though that is likely not the case here).

Problem with Emeralds is that the governor spring rubs on bracket, and also has a tendency to stretch. If this is the case, adjusting governor will be near impossible between full and no load.

Guardian generac 10kw model 5502 does not output correct voltage


the instructions says the voltage regulator is automatic/digital. when you check the voltage is there any load on the generator? if applying load to the generator doesn't help, you can manually change the motor speed where the governor connects to the carborator, but it may change the frequency, but the regulator may fix it
