SOURCE: Guardian generac 10kw model 5502 does not output correct voltage

the instructions says the voltage regulator is automatic/digital. when you check the voltage is there any load on the generator? if applying load to the generator doesn't help, you can manually change the motor speed where the governor connects to the carborator, but it may change the frequency, but the regulator may fix it

SOURCE: I have a Generac 15000 watt portable generator. It

I have solved the flooding problem . unfortanetly you must remove the carb to fix it. once you remove the carb you need to remove the fuel bowl. In the bottem of the fuel bowl there is a electronic seloniod that controols the amount of fule going to combustion. this aria had varnish and gunk built up around the plunger of the selonoid, long story short clean this out with carb and chook cleaner and put it back together. start her up and she will run like a champ.

SOURCE: I have a Generac portable generator 5000 watts, won't start!

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

SOURCE: I have a 17kw generac generator that will run

I have the 18KW model and was told that most alarms relate to a low battery. Make sure the battery charger in the Transfer Switch is properly feeding the battery or hook up a mobil battery charger to the battery and see if the alarm goes away. Good Luck.

My Generac HSB 17W AC Model 0055040 Generator will crank but won't catch and run. Propane tanks are full and have never been empty. What can I do?


Check for igntition at the plugs, check power is going to fuel solenoid. If power is on solenoid check LP pressures and make sure it is opening. Be carefull LPV is dangerous any spark can cause a fire. Check to make sure the throttle is opening during cranking, if it isn't it's a control issue

Can't light the bbq


Hello,
You make have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the valve, disconnect it, reconnect it and very slowly turn the tank valve back on. That should solve your problem.

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners


Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newer tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Close the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a tiny bit but that is just me.

This late model gas grill service manual has more details on page 13.

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.

Propane will not come thru burners


Most propane problems are due to a new valve on the top of the tank. It is designed to only allow a minimal flow until the line is pressured. This prevents fire flair up from broken or leaking hoses. Always turn the bottle on and wait before trying to light a burner. If the burner is on first, the propane will never come out at full flow or if you have a leak in the system, it won't pressurize sufficiently to allow full flow out of the bottle. There is never "air" in the tank.
