How to diagnos Overcrank light


I don't think the over crank is a problem.
Why is it shutting off?
Find the owners manual to find out if there is some fault that will shut it down or it may be an engine problem like the choke not releasing after starting.
To find a manual online you will need the make and model number of your generator.

Guardian propane generator hard starting. At 20 F backfires and won`t start. Goes to overcrank.


It needs a cold weather option, one that heats the oil and also the carb so the LP gas does not freeze the carb. A common problem

Generac 20,000kW Standby generator doesn't start shows message STOP ALARM OVERCRANKED


Overcrank means that it tried to start and couldn't. It will go through 5 crank cycles and then stop with this alarm. Switch to off, hit enter to clear fault and then try to start in manual. Check to make sure you have fuel and pressure is 11 to 14 in WC.

Generator won't start. Screen showing OC.


OC means OVERCRANK safety circuit stopped the auto start-up so you wouldn't burn up the starter. There is a reason the generator didn't start. Low battery, not enough fuel pressure, clogged air filter, bad starter... You just have to eliminate as many as you can visually. Rebooting the generator should clear the OC condition and you can try to start it manually.

Overcrank error message


The 'overcrank' error simply means it tried to start but never actually started. It cranked for an extended period. Check the fuel and starting issues you would normally check to start the engine.

Start runs shutsdown


Typically caused by the fuel line (LP or Natural Gas) having a lot of air in it. Was your generator just installed, or was there any work done to the gas line of the building / generator? Consult local gas contractor / propane dealer / gas company for assistance in purging the fuel line.

A low battery can also cause this as well as the generator is not able to come up to starting speed quick enough. Try placing a stand alone battery charger on the generator and charge the battery. Also check the air filter as well.

OverCrank condition occurs when generator tries to start itself, or be manually started, and the starter spends too much time turning.

This can also indicate failure of the control board. This will need the expertise of generac technician. Call 1-888-GENERAC (1-888-436-3722)
