SOURCE: genset does not start ,

what safety caused the alarm. if you cant restart it, it may be cause the problem that originally shut the engine down has not been fixed, it could be water level, low oil, high water temp, low fuel,over voltage, all of the above are probably run through the safeties. over volt, and water temp would probably clear its self after it sat a while. try turning off power to panel. for a couple minutes and see if it will reset, if not check water level. and oil levels

What do you need to watch while buying Genset?


There are several sites where you can get good collections of Genset. But before buying it from any site you must undergo through their latest reviews mentioned on the sites.
Before you buy a generator you must undergo through the following points:
1) Pay attention to generator function.
2) Note the type of generator needed.
3) Note the type of fuel used
4) Note the time period of tool performance.
I think HARGEN provides the best and cheap genset with high quality. They use quality steel materials so that the durability of their products remains unquestionable.

Generator starts before it gets upto speed the frequency and voltage lights flash and the generator shuts down within 30 seconds from start. What is the problem?


Mybe power from the commercial supply had failed . Or power surge occured and the genset detected power failure.
The other cause could be air bubbles in the gasoline.The genset may need bleeding to remove air bubbles in the gasoline.

Gen runs when switch in auto even though power avail. Tried resetting ATS - waited 30 min. No luck. Only way to turn off is to move switch to stop/reset. Any ideas on what is broken?


have an electrician check the relay that is activated when the utility power fails
that is what starts the genset when it is in auto
it should also stop the get set when utility power comes back on

How do i do when some genset can't run togheter when we start the plant


im not sure are you asking about Phasing ? on a three phase gen set , yes extreme care needs be taken if you need to start one genset before shutting one off , in this case a Phase/sync meter will need to be used to keep from surging all the loads connected to genset , also all three phases of each genset needs to be "In sync" to be able to use a transfer from one genset to another , in sync refers to peek waveform on each genset, needs to be in perfect time or an "ARC" will occur , that could be detrimental to the connected loads if there sensative to this type

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.

The generator doesn't turn off after transfering power back to the utility


The transfer switch is responsible for starting / stopping the generator. Check your auto - start circuit. It is 2 wires that go between the genset and ATS. They are generally normally open. When the genset is to shut down this circuit needs to change state.

How to fix a genset 6500 generators that stops when you turn starter switch loose?


Check the oil level or any other alarm that can stop it.
The switch may have lost its middle stable position and drop directly to stop.
Try after you have the switch up for starting, let it easy back in middle position. If there it stops again. Try to move the switch down to "Stop". You should hear a click. If not replace the switch with the same type.

Perkins 3 cylinder powered pramac generator


Start looking at your safety circuits.

1. High water temp
2. Low Oil
3. Low water etc...

From the manual these are the protection circuits.

• Engine protection: low oil pressure, high engine temperature.
• Genset protection: under/over voltage, overload, battery charger failure, battery voltage out of limits,
under/over frequency, start failure.
• Circuit breaker protection: IV poles.
• Differential protection.


Any one of them will trip the fuel relay closed. What you may be able to do is disconnect one at a time each protection circuit and see when the fuel relay opens. (Make sure to reconnect each one if it had no effect on the fuel solenoid)

Once you isolate which circuit it is in then you can chase wires or change the bad switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Onan 7000 genset in my rv It starts and


Either you have a kill wire ( if I remember it is the brown wire) that is disconnected on one end or the other Or your in coach switch is bad.
Check the switch this way

Remove the switch from the dash/ mounting surface unplug the brown wire - start the genset - ground the brown wire - it should kill the motor
If it kills the motor your switch is bad

I have an onan 2800 gen that will not charge


If the govenor didn't work that means that you placed the linkage on the carberator the wrong way. This will cause the genset to overspeed and possibly stop the genset from creating voltage. If the genset does not create voltage then you won't have a charger. Fix the linkage first by looking to make sure that the throttle plate is closed before starting genset. Once you start the genset check for voltage.
