I have a 20kw generac standby generator, where the starter tries to engage after the generator starts up and is running. Only has 316 running hours. Installed new starter in 2016.


The starter pinion drive gear is sticking.... its the smaller gear on the shaft that moves up and down to engage the flywheel gear and start the motor. Carefully put a LITTLE hi temp grease on the shift splines (curved ones) and see how much that helps. The gear is not staying "retracted"..if this doesn't help.. the spring that pushes the gear back down may not be strong enough...(you could always fix both)

Generac 40kw single phase generator starter engages after 30sec of running


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.

How to start a gas generator (should the choke be in or out, to the right or the left before starting


Most Generac generators have a lever for the choke that pulls out. So if the generator is being started for the first use or cold you should choke when starting . Let it run for 30-45 sec. then push it in . Once the engine has been run or warm you dont need to choke every time when starting .

Generac EPS-15 attempts to engage the starter while running


I work on these everyday. You most likely have a bad rotor or stater if the starter engages while running and no output. The no out put is making the generator think its not running causing it to try and start. If its not that then its the control board or voltage regulator.

Start runs shutsdown


Typically caused by the fuel line (LP or Natural Gas) having a lot of air in it. Was your generator just installed, or was there any work done to the gas line of the building / generator? Consult local gas contractor / propane dealer / gas company for assistance in purging the fuel line.

A low battery can also cause this as well as the generator is not able to come up to starting speed quick enough. Try placing a stand alone battery charger on the generator and charge the battery. Also check the air filter as well.

OverCrank condition occurs when generator tries to start itself, or be manually started, and the starter spends too much time turning.

This can also indicate failure of the control board. This will need the expertise of generac technician. Call 1-888-GENERAC (1-888-436-3722)
