THERE SHOULD BE A BOLT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OIL SUMP THIS SHOULD BE ON THE SIDE TOWARD THE BOTTOM IT WILL LOOK LIKE THE COLOR OF BRASS TURN THE BOLT TO THE LEFT TO TAKE OUT LET THE MOTOR WARM UP BEFORE TAKING THE BOLT OUT THIS WILL THE OIL TO WARM UP. DRAIN THE OIL OUT AND REPLACE THE PLUG DONT OVER TIGHTIN THE PLUG . REPLACE THE OIL WITH 30 W OIL FOR SUMMER USE I HAVE A 10W 30 ALSO THIS WEIGH IS FOR SUMMER USE. USE A LIGHTER WEIGH OIL FOR WINTER USE.PLEASE TAKE OIL TO A RECYCLE PLACE . ALSO DONT OVER FILL THE MOTOR WITH OIL.

Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.

Look in the owner's manual. If you don't have one, check Generac's web site and download one. There should be a drain plug at the bottom of the crankcase.

Generac 5623 GP6500 8000 Watt 389cc ohv will not stay running. Will only run for a few minutes then quit and then usually can't restart.


if the gerator runs pretty smooth up until then, i would suggest checking/changing your oil as the low oil level switch is picking up on a slight change in the oil level (easier to detect when oil is hot), if it start to give hesitation or reduction of power, check the choke, make sure its off.

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.
