SOURCE: Is the charger a floating charger? Model # 55010

Yes it has a maintenance floating charger, it only turns on when the battery voltage drops to a predetermined value, why do you ask?

Have a Generac EXL8000 and wires have been pulled loose from the switches and plugins and control panel.

This is an older generator. If you have the owners manual, there should be wiring schematics that give the wiring legends to all of the connections. I can't find a downloadable .pdf manual for your generator. If you don't have the manual, you'll likely have to take your generator to a service center for repair & testing.

Generator problems

but battery charge voltage has to be 14.5-14.8 volts to charge a battery
batteries are known to be 12 volts but in fact at 2.2 volts a cell they are 13.2 volts capacity so 13 volts will not charge a battery

14kw kohler propane generator-sometimes does not start, put battery jumper on and it starts. Battery is new, but had the same problem with the old battery.

The battery charger is defective, as you can start it by jumping it off means it is just a low battery. without it running measure battery voltage, it should be around 12V then plug the charger back in, it should climb to around 13.8B with a good battery. If not have the float charger checked.

The kohler charger can't seem to work automatically, it keeps charging

It is supposed to bulk charge then drop to a float charge, it is more likely an issue with the battery

I have a 10KW SIEMENS generator Model #0059090 - Cat#ASGNO10RBS, it was installed May 26-2011.Generator workrd fine after runing all the test required. We had a very short outage less then a minute, after...

Most of those chargers have a fuse in line between the battery and the charger which you should check. They are two stage chargers meaning when there is a large voltage drop, they go to a high rate charge until battery voltage reads about 14.3 - 14.6 VDC then drops to a float volatge and normal float voltage should be about 13.33 VDC. When they go to a high rate the light turns red, when they go to float the light turns green. When the fuse blows the light stays green because it doesn't see any voltage but the charger isn't doing any work.

2nd battery explosion with 3 year interval of flawless operation.

If the unit is using a wet cell acid battery, it's possible that dirt mixed with hydrogen build up on top of the battery caused the second failure. The battery top should be kept clean and should be checked at least 4 times per year. Any stray ignition source can cause the hydrogen to explode, including lightning.

It's also possible that the battery float charger needs to be adjusted or possibly has a problem. Some float chargers are adjustable. The higher the charging rate the more off-gassing the battery will experience and increase the chance of a failure.

If the battery has exploded, the entire generator and housing should be cleaned (washed) thoroughly to remove any remaining battery electrolyte (acid).

Be careful - if you aren't comfortable working on this type of equipment, it's best to call a local dealer and find a service vendor.

Generac 20kw - new battery dead, twice. is there a problem?

if this is a standby unit. there is a charger built into the control box. check the fuses. if it still blows the d\fuse you can install a float type charger available from most auto parts stores. make sure there is power comming in from the bldg breaker box.

I need to know what battery in float mode means on my battery charger. It doesnt say and its a smart charger 2amp 6amp and 12amp charger.

Float mode on a battery charger generally means that battery has been fully charged at a faster rate, and the charger is now maintaining the full charge, without overcharging the battery. You can usually leave the battery connected to the charger indefinitely - float mode will ensure it is always at it's peak charge.

Please rate if this helps :)
