Guardian 8k overspeed issue

Installed unit in Aug 2013 and it excercised fine the 1st month. As of Sept. started with "error 1200 overspeed" problem. Had tech check it out and he stated that it could be a pipping issue with N/G short run (4')3/4" to 1/2". My plumber redid the pipping to all 3/4" as suggested by "generac" problem not solved. Also why is the included flex pipe 1/2"?? My plumber believes its either the control board/gas regulator. Has anyone had the same problem and how was it "fixed"!!

SOURCE: Attempted to start Generac Guardian 15 kw air

I work on these every day. Its either gonna be the rotor or stater, the voltage regulator, but most likely its a bad stepper motor which is the throttle motor, or control board. Thats all that could be causing that so its one of those. If its the rotor or stater thats bad it causes the generator to RPM up because it thinks its not producing enough power due to that. I had the same problem with the same one we just fixed and it was the slip rings on the end of the rotor so bad rotor.

How do I fix an overspeed problem with my Standby Generator?


have the dealer look at it again
I suspect that there is a spring missing from the rod that connects the governor lever to the carby butterfly

Generac Guardian 12 KW Model 04456-2 shuts down on overspeed in cold weather


Leigh,
See my 5/22/12 comments on my "overspeed fault" problem resolution [Generac 43903 standby Generator overspeed indicator on starting] . If it only runs for a few seconds and then quits, you may have a similar condition to the one my unit had. A good technician should be able to diagnose the problem and determine if you have a similar failure to the one I had, or one of the other causes suggested by RSG000.
