Question about Generac Guardian Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Guardian rv generator starts popping when turning on hair dryer. Why does this happen?

I am a mobile dog groomer and my system runs by a 6500 watts Generac Guardian. Every time we turn on our largest hair dryer it starts to pop and we have to go the the breaker and shut off the power and turn it back on to start. Sometimes we have to do it several times for it to quit. It only does it with the largest dryer. When turning on the smaller dryer we have no issues. What could be causing this problem and how can we fix it please. Thanks, Maureen

What is the wattage of the hair dryer?. It sounds to that your hair dryer is drawing to much power for the generator.

    It just started to do this. It use to work fine. What would have changed? And it does not do it every time I use that dryer.

    It may be demagnetised. If you turn off the generator before unplugging the load this may happened. Try to put a strong magnet (like those from loudspeakers) in contact with the body of alternator. I do this in the past and it work.If you do not know how to do this ask an electrician, he can help you .

    Is this an RV generator?

    If you have to really choke an LP engine but it runs more or less normally once started you need to troubleshoot the demand regulator and the fuel supply lines (look for air leaks). I'd also check the fuel inlet pressure before the demand regulator.
