Is that all the load on the generator? If so, it's probably just not regulating. Try loading it up with about 250W worth of lightbulbs (like one of those construction floodlights), it'll probably settle right down. The inverter charger is doing you a favor and protecting itself.

Sounds like an oil pressure sensor issue. Be sure you have adequate oil volume and that the sensor line is connected.

Bought new. No problems until two weeks ago. Now has 252 HRS. Starts all the time, runs 10 seconds then shuts down. I have removed wire an oil pressure switch. no help. Found connector off on switch p


It shuts down because it's not making power. You are probably getting a failure to start error code. If it doesn't make power it doesn
t know its running. Rotor has lost residual magnetism to start the voltage regulator. Replace the voltage regulator. The new one is designed to overcome this.

Need wiring diagram,from alternator to plug-ins for briggs & Stratton (3500) Elite series Model # 030208-0


No wiring diagram available from Briggs. Try re-magnetizing the rotor. No AVR or Capacitor listed in the parts list.

Disconnect the wires to brushes ( pay attention to the order) and apply 12vdc to brushes. Positive goes to brush closest to the bearing. Start the generator and check for output. If output is normal run the unit a few minutes to ensure re-magnetization then shut down normally. After shut down disconnect the 12 vdc source and re-install the previous disconnected wires. Now re start the generator and test for output should be okay provide there is no problems with the alternator. If no output during the above re-magnetization then your rotor windings my burned out.

Usually the cause of slightly low voltage like this is that the engine is not running at full operating RPM. Find the high speed adjusting screw on the govenor linkage and adjust the engine RPM until the output is 220V - 240V

Briggs & Stratton 12KW Model 040229 LPG Generator. 96 Volts @ the 120 Volts outlet, When I turn the house 2 Ton AC voltage increase to 106 Volts.


Can you manually adjust the voltage on the generator without load?? If you have 120/240 60hz output on it and you are not overloading the unit (amperage), then it may be as simple as adjusting whats called your gain setting for your voltage regulator. Obviously you are seeing what happens when it is set too low. Trying raising that setting until it becomes unstable then back it off. Unstable meaning voltage starts jumping all over.

It sounds like the mains sense wire is disconected from the control panel or the run wire is not being cut by the aux contact on the transfer switch.
Is the transfer switch manual or motorised?

Does it appear to be running as fast as it always did, as in RPM's are same as usual? If there is a fuel problem and rpm's decrease due to that, voltage will drop as well. Other causes may be internal problems with generator circuits etc, and will need technician to troubleshoot it properly.
You can try increasing the throttle manually and see if voltage comes up.

No charging voltage to battery


You can test the charger right at the battery. With the system just sitting in regular stand-by mode. If you lift the battery leads, they should have about 13.5 volts coming in from the trickle charger. If there is no voltage there, it can't charge. It would be a bad trickle charger.
