Generac Watchdog 15K, engine will not start

Bought this unit used for one season. Was run on butane, I converted to propane as per the manual. Installed new fuel regulator. Won't start. During cranking, there is 12 volts on the fuel solenoid. Replaced solenoid, still won't start. Have fuel pressure, spark plugs are firing, but still no start. Any suggestions?

Throttle motor or governer board. or control board. your gas line could be to small. check the pressure while its cranking to see if it drops. watch the throttle to see if its moving while trying to crank the generator

Can I convert weber q from butane to LPG (Australian)


From propane to LPG... Yes! It is nothing more than a conversion kit. But if you actually mean butane, then I am not sure.

My patio heater will light and run for about three to five minutes then shuts off, I can wait a few minutes and relight and it will do the same thing.


Hi, This can be caused by using butane during cold nights. Butane will start to freeze on cold nights but propane will work up to -6 . If already using propane then the most likely problem will be a worn thermocouple, these are consumable items. Found this site very useful, patio heaters problem solving.

How to convert a 61" residential rangefrom butane to natural gas?


Hello,
Ranges come set from the factory for natural gas. To convert it to propane, you should call your propane co and have a qualified serviceman do the work. You can void the warranty if you try to do it yourself and break something or don't convert it correctly. On an expensive range like this, you'll be better off having a professional do it right and keep that warranty intact. It could take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete the job. You may need to purchase an LP conversion kit if some of the orifices have to be exchanged, like on a unit with sealed stovetop burners. Write down the make, model # and serial # for reference when you make an appt to have it done. Hope that helps.

Convert to LP?


If it is possible, then the orifice has to be changed. The regulator may need to be changed as well. I am a certified LP technician for recreational vehicles, but I don't know enough about this particular appliance to say for sure if it can be converted. The best thing is to contact Miele directly, but this sort of conversion always requires a different orifice. Note that propane, butane, and natural gas are all forms of LP (Liquified petroleum), so conversion between the 3 is usually possible
