The engine throttle control is out of adjustment. It needs to be set based on the generator frequency
(60 Hz).

Overspeed fault Possible damage from over voltage to refers and other items. 15kw propane Watchdog unit. How can I set unit so it puts out correct voltage and doesn't shut down from overspeed?


hi
not knowing the age of your unit ( and not been very familiar with your watchdog ) i can confirm that the not so old ones are platically sealed unit in which case a replacement one is needed . if the older type them you are going to need an volts / amp meter and then realic unless you know basic electric law you have no choice but to let an electrical engineer to look at it

Generac over-speed fault


check your frequency of the ac, if this is high, then adjust the rpms.
If that is fine and it is shutting down, check overspeed adjustment on control board if it has it.

I recently came across a similar situation in a isuzu that took some time to diagnose. What if eventually turned out to be one injector had an intermittent failure and it too out 2 other injectors and the engine shut down. If the vehicle sat for 1/2 hour it restarted and ran again for sometimes days before the fault again appeared. It was tracked down by running the truck on a chassis dyno under load and when the fault appeared each injector was disconnected until the faulty one was revealed. If these symptoms parallel yours I suggest you point the mechanic in that direction .

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.

You have to reset it because it locked out on on under frequency. Just pullout the fuse on the control panel and then reinstall it a couple of seconds later. Now it will reset the fault codes. Hope that helps.

Don't block off any ceiling ducts and see what happens. If you've closed off any forced air ducts, the unit will freeze up, if too many are closed off. Also, if you shut unit off (compressor) give it 5 or 10 minutes before you turn it back on.

1995 Ford Thuderbird


Depending on which type of carburetta this car has, it may be that the rubber diaphram has a tiny pinprick of a hole in it. This will affect the vacumn and the fuel control. An easy way to test this is to allow the car to rest without the engine running for a few minutes, start the engine an increase the power whilst at a standstill and see how long it takes before the engine shuts down, then let it rest again for a few minutes, start the engine and let it run just on tick over, if it carries on running for a much longer period than before then you may have the answer.
Hope this helps Bomber667
