Setting Exercise Timer
The Home Standby Generator is equipped with an exercise
timer that will start and exercise the system once every
seven days. During this exercise period, the unit runs for
approximately 20 minutes and then shuts down. Electrical
load transfer DOES NOT occur during the exercise cycle
(unless an utility power outage occurs).
A switch on the control panel is labeled “Set Exercise”
(depicted on page 10).The specific day and the specific time
of day this switch is pressed is programmed into the
control board memory.This date and time is then used to
automatically initiate the system exercise cycle.
To perform the Set Exercise procedure:
1. Choose the day and time you want your Home
Standby Generator to exercise.
2. On that day and time, set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL
switch to OFF.
3. Press and hold down the “Set Exercise” switch for two
seconds.
4. Set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to AUTO.“Set
Exercise” is complete.
For example, if you press the “Set Exercise” switch on
Sunday morning at 10:00 AM, the unit will run an exercise
cycle the following Sunday at 10:00 AM (+/- 1/2 hour).
NOTE: “Set Exercise” will only work if the unit is in the
Automatic mode and this exact procedure is followed.The
exerciser does not need to be re-set if the 15 Amp fuse is
removed or changed.The exerciser will need to be re-set if
the 12 Volt DC battery is disconnected.
If you want to change the day and time the unit exercises,
simply perform the “Set Exercise” procedure at the exact
weekday and time you want it to take place.
• To prevent possible injury that might be caused by such sudden
starts, always set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to OFF.
• Remove the 15 Amp fuse before working on or around the
generator or transfer switch.

I am not sure where you live, the problem is a common problem. Most generator manufacturers now offer a cold start or cold weather option, this is an oil warmer, but more importantly a carb heater. I would contact a Briggs CERTIFIED generator dealer and ask them if there is that option available

Briggs & Stratton 12KW Model 040229 LPG Generator. 96 Volts @ the 120 Volts outlet, When I turn the house 2 Ton AC voltage increase to 106 Volts.


Can you manually adjust the voltage on the generator without load?? If you have 120/240 60hz output on it and you are not overloading the unit (amperage), then it may be as simple as adjusting whats called your gain setting for your voltage regulator. Obviously you are seeing what happens when it is set too low. Trying raising that setting until it becomes unstable then back it off. Unstable meaning voltage starts jumping all over.

I have a 5.5 Vertical Briggs and Stratton about 6 years old that is mounted on a woodsplitter. This year it started dieing under load. It's driving a brand new 2 stage 11 gallon pump because I thought that...


If the generator was used during these 6 years continuously on full or near full load, it may have loosed compression (and derated load).

If you can measure the pump current and compare with the rated of the generator it should be less than the half of the rated to run properly in continuous mode. If it is greater than 75% it may be more than the possible for this generator.

Nevertheless the new fine oil, the overheating or lowering of the oil level during operation may be the reason for stopping.

13.5 briggs runs rough spits & sputters


Hello rbryan492:

From your Description it Sounds like a Blown Head Gasket between the Push Tube Galley and the Cylinder, the Valve Clearance Requires Setting or the Flywheel Key is Damaged and Requires Replacing.
>>If you Require More Assistance, then
>>Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Unit, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. The Model Numbers May be Stamped Into the Blower Housing (metal engine cover) Above the Spark Plug. Many horizontal shaft, overhead valve engines have these numbers stamped into the OHV rocker cover. However, on certain overhead valve powered generators, the equipment manufacturer installs a decorative chrome rocker cover OVER the Briggs cover. If your engine has a decorative cover, it may be necessary to remove it in order to locate the Model, Type, and Code. If this is a Briggs and Stratton Engine, then you can Also Use this Site Addy; http://www.briggsandstratton.com/maint_repair/BS_modeltypecode.pdf for Assistance in Locating the Model, Type and Code Numbers of the Engine.
Thanks.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
