I have a generac ix2000 and has an overload light on with no AC power out. what do i need to check?
When you have a generator with a inverter in it you have to be careful of overloads an static electricity. More than likely one or more otf the MOSFETs has blown. An inverter is really a switching supply. Not very hard to replace parts but if you have spme skill with electronics take it apart an give it a go. If transistors have not blown you may find a blown fuse inside on circuit board. You will never find a schematic for any of these units. They are protected because the dealers pay to much for selling rights you cant hardly get them. But i would take it apart an see what you have. Or find a good electronics guy an ask him to check it

I have a Generac 5000 Watt Power Plus Mod-00413-0
Does this have an oil filter and if so wich one do i need ?!?
Regarding the advice about "Flashing" a generator.
Do you people even know what that means?
What you are doing is messing with the capacitor that is part of the voltage conversion. Likely you are burning any shorts out of the capacitor. Has noting to do with the fields or coils or rectifier.
So if you are having issues then test the capacitor and replace it.
Try your flashing and see if you don't fry the rectifier.
It amazes me that people will blindly follow something they don't understand "hoping" that something good will happen.
But if a new generator is what you want then give your old one away instead of trashing it.

Generac 11kw overspeed changed ignition coil still going into overspeed code
During engine cranking and operation the controller receives AC
voltage and frequency signals from the ignition magneto via Wire
18. Should the speed exceed approximately 72 Hz (4320 RPM),
the controller's logic will de-energize the "run relay" (internal to
the controller). The relay contacts will open terminating engine
ignition and closing the fuel shutoff solenoid; the engine will
then shut down. This feature protects the engine and alternator
against damaging over speeds. During cranking the RPM signal
generated by the magnetos is used to terminate engine cranking.

Error code 1518 on a generac generator
If you have a Generac Generator which fails to start during a power outage and gives an Error Code 1518 - RPM Sense Loss you can try and manually get the generator restarted very simply. ... The generator should wait 5 seconds and then try and auto-start up to 3 times.
