Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Your red LED is telling you that it was 1. overloaded. 2. has low voltage 3. overheated or 4. short in the powered circuit.

OVERLOAD LED (red): Lights up if the generator experiences
a load greater than the rated output, low voltage, overheats or
the powered circuit experiences a short. The output is stopped
even though the engine keeps running.

I do not know which of the 4 conditions caused your red light. If you have the read light with no load I would suspect low voltage from the generator / inverter. If it overheated you will also get the Red LED with no load.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

It will turn over once or twice and stops it has a red light on where the braker panel is


press the helpful button and follow me on Fixya for more helpful tips

The current models of automatic standby generators will have LED indicator lights on the side compartment of the generator. A green LED light will indicate that the unit is in AUTO mode and is ready to run, or is running properly during a utility outage. The yellow LED light will indicate that maintenance is needed. The red LED will indicate either that the unit is switched to OFF or that there is an alarm detected. If a yellow or red LED are present, you will need to check the generator's control panel, as it will describe the type of maintenance needed or the alarm present. This information can be found in the owner's manual as well. You can find a copy of the owner's manual online by searching the model or serial number of the unit here

Generac generator won't turn off in automatic


It is possibly a transfer switch issue, not the generator control board. Have an electrican kill utility power, let it start and run, then disconnect the sensing wires in the ATS. If it stops problem is ATS

I have a generac 22kw model QT02224anan that will run for a few minutes then shut down , then the over speed led is lit. It only happens when it is under load or during a power outage. it goes through...


its possible the overspeed is set to sensitive. or your rpm are to high. these are preset in the factory as a safety, check your manual to ensure your rpm speed is in the pre set area. generators will do this under load when you have a big load on them or take a load off. the governor will some times over compensate causing it to trip on overspeed.

batteries only last about 3 months on these units. make sure you are within 20 ft of the generator and put in new batteries. The green light will blink is a minute or so.

Overcrank error message


The 'overcrank' error simply means it tried to start but never actually started. It cranked for an extended period. Check the fuel and starting issues you would normally check to start the engine.
