20 Most Recent Generac 6051 Guardian Series Air-Cooled 10kW 120/240V Single Phase Steel Residential Generator with Nexus Smart Switch Questions & Answers


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.

Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.

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.

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.

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.
