Generator won't start

My generator (MQ Power Whisperwatt generator model DCA-45SSIUII)was running during a power outage and it shut off and will not start back up. The oil and water were fine. It was about 20 degrees outside at the time. It did not run out of fuel. It usually starts with just one turn of the motor. I did spray ether in her and she did crank up for a second. Thanks for any advice. Wayne

Some of the generator has a control or tripping device like over speed, over voltage, overload or overcurrent or other trip device, try to find & reset it.

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.

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.

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.

When we purchased our home in '04, it had a Dayton generator in the basement, model no. 3W056A, serial no. 55658 F83. It runs on natural gas, or so I've been told: It has never run since...


Let me make sure I read your post corerectly ... You have a Natural Gas operated generator hooked up in your basement? That's a train wreck waiting to happen! How is the exhaust vented out and how air tight is your basement? What keeps the carbon monoxide from reaching the rest of the house, when it's in operation?

Generators are a great back up. I have a 15 kw, that carries most of the house, plus 3 pumps during a power outage (Due to severe electrical storms, recently) we have had 2 power outages in 5 days. However, the National Building Code says "NO" to any type of generator being operated inside a residence or building of any type.

Without trying to sound critical, you need to rethink your plans of getting your generator running again. At least in your basement. Have it moved outside first and check with your local officials regarding clearances to any openings in the house. Or as you said "Just scrap it."

I sincerely hope this helps you make the right decision. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Make sure the sparkplug is clean and gapped. Unloosen the float bowl slightly and drain about a half cup of gas out of the bowl. It is possible a little condensation got in to the fuel. Tighten the bowl nut slightly and try to start the generator.

Although packing it in dry ice could be an option I would recommend checking the thermostat and the coolant pump. Check to see if the hoses have pressure in them by gently squeezing them just as the engine is warming up. 100-105 degrees. Be careful after that. If you don't have callouses ;) Good luck
