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.

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

Why doesn't it start?


gen sets have to be run at set rpms so that the voltage and cycles are correct for the applications
with the rpms as little as 100 rpms below requirement , the voltage will be down , causing a brown out which burns out electric motors and if the rpms are low the required cycles will also be off which affects electronic equipment
service the gen set and find out why the rpms are not at the set level

Generator alarm underspeed


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

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.

If you are using a Manual transfer switch, then you should manually operate the system. Why don't you use the switch it came with? Why would you use a 200a manual transfer switch on a 17kw generator? The idea is to move your critical circuits into the transfer switch panel. Then it would operate in auto.
