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

I bought a Generac 17kw with automatic transfer switch. I would like to use a 200 Amp manual throw transfer switch. The generator came with a pre wired sealtite pig tale and junction box. Inside the...


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.

Recently a Generac 17kw natural gas generator was installed at my house. The weekly exercise cycle works OK. However I noticed a small gas odor coming from the air intake vents. The gas installer has...


There will be a normal odor as the engine cranks until enough gas is in the intake for starting. Gas generators do not have an ignition 'on-off' switch, they use a fuel solenoid to turn on and off the gas to start and kill the engine. If you are uneasy, your local gas company should be able to check engine compartment for leaks. Here in my home town, the gas company will inspect any equipment for gas leaks and/or carbon monoxide levels free of charge.

I have a 17kw generac generator that will run


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.
