SOURCE: Attempted to start Generac Guardian 15 kw air

I work on these every day. Its either gonna be the rotor or stater, the voltage regulator, but most likely its a bad stepper motor which is the throttle motor, or control board. Thats all that could be causing that so its one of those. If its the rotor or stater thats bad it causes the generator to RPM up because it thinks its not producing enough power due to that. I had the same problem with the same one we just fixed and it was the slip rings on the end of the rotor so bad rotor.

SOURCE: I have a 10 KW Generac Guardian Stand By withe a

Hi, I have a 10kw Generac Generator and I went out to check on it to see that all was working and saw the display panel blank. The generator wont turn over. This was installed 3mos ago and all was fine. It has an automatic transfer switch in the main panel. I tested to see if the gen was getting power from the 2p 15amp breaker and showed power to gen. I think it might be the battery charging system were can I find this?

Generac power management module install


Mount the transformer on the generator. Hard wire it into a 120 vac plug. Run wires to the module and connect to the coil on the relay. Now run the load you want to disconnect while the generator is running to the load terminals of the relay in the module.

Under voltage alarm /shutdown on generac 10 kw gen.


The brushes on Generac automatic units are most likely not lined up with the slip rings and will wear down and burn out very fast. There is no way of checking this during assenbly because they are hidden from view and the generator has to be dismantled to be able to replace them. It's an extremely poor design and Genrac should face a class action lawsuit for producing this piece of junk.

I have a 10 KW Generac Guardian Stand By withe a prwired EZ transfer swithc. Everything works except the 12 volts battery charger. What could be the problem. Only have three weeks innstalled.


Your generator is equipped with a battery trickle
charger that is active when your unit is set up for
automatic operation. The trickle charger is
designed to help extend the life of your battery by
maintaining the battery when the unit is
not running.
you will need to review which circuit bord controls this and have that board replaced or serviced some of these gen heads have this built in and it will be the rectifier in the gen it self it will be a black 1x1x3/8 inch with a mounting hole in the center and 4 lug post for the wires replace this and your issue should be solved but consult your dealer for witch unit you have as to a control board external or the built in rectifier hope this helps.

10kw Generac shut down overspeed


Make sure that the throttle linkage is all there and not damaged/misadjusted, then get a manometer and check your inlet gas pressure. Gas pressure should be 8 inches of water column and stay there running or not.

16 KW guardian generator


My answer:

Your Genset is made by GENERAC same as my personal 5500W home unit is. Great service and great Genset!!

I never had any problems with mine other then the Poly gas tank valve stem gasket leaked from day 1, and they replaced it no bones 100% FREE upon request. I also requested both a Service manual and an Operators Manual and they sent me both FREE of charge as well. (I had no manuals with mine either, as I bought my Genset brand new at a garage sale for $300 - great deal)

Just make sure when you call them (as with anyone seeking operator/setup manuals - that you tell them they got LOST in a recent move!) It helps - otherwise they (any company) might ask for a charge for them. Getting pretty bad out there everywhere thanks to you know who!

Call the GENERAC toll free # below anyway - regardless what it says below about the GUARDIAN brand and where to get service. You want the Install / Service manuals only.
