Question about Generac 13,000 Watt / 13,000 Watt Home Standby Generator
I bought a used Generac Generator and the starter wants to engage after 30 sec of running ,I checked the voltage reg and I have 158 or so vac on the 15 and 16 wire , also I see no hertz on the frequency meter ,My main breaker on unit is off also, not sure hw many volts I should have out of the reg, and why I dont see Hertz
For the over voltage there is an adjustment on the control board.
Should be tested with a load something plugged in.
The hertz might just come on when under load and adjusted too.
If you need more give a model number and whether it is 13kw or 40kw.

Most people don't buy a transfer switch because they cost almost as much as the generator. Lowe's sells a very inexpensive one that will work for most people. It is made by GE and costs $92. Lowe's Item #: 42210 Model: TM860S. Good for 60 amps and 8 circuits. It takes standard GE half size breakers but includes the 60 amp main breakers (which are also standard but make use of a novel device that ensures you can't send power back up the pole). It's a great little design and if a breaker ever fails, you can get a replacement at Lowe's or Home Depot.

SOURCE: No voltage output
It is possible that your voltage regulator is shot but before purchasing the volt regulator try flashing the fields first and make sure the brushes and rings are clean.

SOURCE: generator not charging
look where you plug items in for power there should be a little circuit breaker there (a little black button) puss it in you should be ready to go.

If it was installed only five months ago, it should still be under warranty. Call Home Depot and have them send out a repair person.
