When you get the under speed alarm is the generator under load? Try manually starting the generator with no load and let it run for a while, if no alarm, then put it under your home load and measure current draw (maybe have an electrician check it) if the amp draw and in rush caused by compressors, pumps motors etc are within the generator rating, check your fuel pressure, on average 8-11 WC Nat gas. Pressure may test well under no load but drop starving the engine of fuel unde rload. Underspeed is just that engine cannot make RPM/Frequency

Keep getting under voltage fault. I have cleared fault several time. generator will run for short period then fail.sometimes the fault is underspeed.

See if reducing the number of things connected to the generator will stop your problem. Disconnect or turn off some things that are not totally necessary.
To properly generate electricity, the engine is required to maintain an rpm within a specific range. If you load down the generator with too many things pulling power, the engine will not have enough HP to turn the generator within the set rpm range. It goes under-speed or under-voltage and you get a fault.
Going to the extreme, if you disconnect everything from the generator and it still fails, you have a generator problem

What mean underspeed fault in generator GESAN 200KVA

Could be the idle is set too low. Check your manual for location of the choke. The choke lowers and raises the idle speed. You want to engage the choke when starting the motor so it gets a little more mixture, then slowly reduce it. If the choke is stuck or in the wrong position, the idle will be too low. If you can't find the manual, do a search online and download it.

My coleman powermate 1850 will run for about 15 to 30 min, then it shuts down. Then I have to wait 1 to 2 hours to start again. could it be the low oil switch has gone bad? or is it a plugged exhaust

Could be a bad magneto coil, check for spark right after it shuts down. If no spark you need a new coil, If you have a bad coil it will heat up and will not generate a spark but after it cools down it will work until it gets hot.

Generac 20,000kW Standby generator doesn't start shows message STOP ALARM OVERCRANKED

Overcrank means that it tried to start and couldn't. It will go through 5 crank cycles and then stop with this alarm. Switch to off, hit enter to clear fault and then try to start in manual. Check to make sure you have fuel and pressure is 11 to 14 in WC.

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.

Where to connect fire alarm to a combination starter with a hand/off/auto/switch

The fire alarm (usually an open contact, held closed during healthy operation) MUST go in series with the supply to the switch. This is normally incoming to a terminal which is linked between the hand and auto positions. If this is a full control panel, the fire alarm connection SHOULD be used to drop out the entire control circuit. Can you supply wiring diagram?

Fridge displaying F16 and sonic alarm sounding.

Could be that the generator cannot supply the surge power needed for the compressor to get going.
