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

Sounds like the electritian wired something wrong. Control wiring for that generator should be:
N1 and N2 = 240 vac utility input
Wire 0 = ground
Wire 194 (15B) = + battery
wire 23 = transfer signal

Your electrician should have run a set of wires out to the generator from the transfer switch. The unit actually comes with a fuse holder, fuse, terminal connector, and jumper wire for installing these wires to the t1 or t2 terminals in the transfer switch. The dc wires will be the ones coming out of the battery charger, 1 of them will have a red marker around it, that is your dc positive. The 2 wires coming out of the opposite side of the battery charger is actuall your ac connection.

hope this helps let me know.

I have a toy hauler with a generac generator propane that wont start getting gas and spark but wont start model 04164-0


Check the comprssion, if you are sure you have a spark and gas. Is the fuel been delivered to the cylinders? Check the fuel solenoid for power, if power is present the demand gas regulator maybe gummed up. LP companies put a waxy lubricant in the gas and over time this can build up and harden in regulators. Also during crank observe the throttle is it going open as it should? if not suspect a control issue

You did not specify fuel. If running natural gas or propane, check the diameter of your feed line. You need at least 1/2 to 3/4 pipe diameter on the NG or propane. At 60KW I would guess at least 3/4 maybe larger for NG.

Need adjustment procedure for a Generac Centurion generator, carb and regulator under full load


Before you adjust anything, suggest you verify gas line for proper pressure and importantly volume. Pressure for gas should be 5 to 7 inches and propane 11 to 14 inches W.C. Also make sure the line to the generator is sized properly and the gas meter is a high volume unit (if NG). 90% we find the problem with generator sunder load that otherwise are fine are fuel related. Good luck.
