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 15kw generac genset and it has an "overload remove load" fault which can be cleared from the evolution controller. genset started but shutdown after 5 seconds.


The overload fault is indicating that your connected load is overloading the generator capacity and it's tripping off. Check your connected load (what ever is hooked up that you're trying to power). You need to use an amp meter to verify the amp draw, and also the rated voltage output. If it's low voltage, could be low engine RPM or voltage regulator. high current indicates a problem with load your trying to power, ie-- Motor or other load.

I have ix800 overload light is on wont produce power.what could be the problem?


Two things come to mind, (1) the unit is carrying too much of a load. Unplug everything and try again, and (2) the inverter assemble is defective and needs to be replaced (most likely cause if nothing is plugged in). (Still under warranty?)

How do I fix this problem


You are drawing to much power and if your not drawing any power and that light is still on then the breakers in the gen are toast

Generac ix 2000 how do I adjust fuel mixture


im not suure what you mean about "Bog" but this gen is only good to 1600 watts cont. (2000 peak) and it has a auto throttle so it will idle down all by itself when not loaded past say 40% of total load , but if you think your having fuel starve problems try all the simple things 1st Fuel filer (inside tank) clean carb and stuff like that , I do fix allot of small engines with a good strong dose of stp fuel treatment and i never need to take em apart

Generac generator on auto runs weekly. light green previuosly green. now red. what causes this??


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.

I get no 110 or 220 volt power


generac was purchased by Briggs Stratton some years ago, however some information is available at the following web address, just enter your model number:

http://www.generac-portables.com/service_support/owner_manuals/owner_manuals.cfm

The small board that you describe is the bridge rectifier that converts ac from the windings to dc for the armature. You can test the brush/board by removing the part from the generator and applying 12 to 16 volts ac to the input tabs/wires then test/read dc (dc voltage will be lower than input ) voltage at the brushes. Use meter to make sure that you are getting dc. I use a small power supply less than one amp that I purchased at the thrift store for a couple of dollars. If test fails replace part. If it tests ok re-install brushes and re-connect the ac power supply to brush/board which in turn will energize the armature. At this point test the armatrue for magnetic power. I use a thin welding rod or wire against armature. If you feel a magnet start the engine. If the windings are good you should get some voltage at the plugs and the two wires that feed the brushes (will not be full voltage). If voltage is present, kill engine and disconnect ac power supply and connect the original wires to brushes/board and start engine. If you now have voltage at plugs you spiked the system indirectly by energising the armature. If still no voltage you may have an open circuit that feeds the brushes or diode pack is failing with the incresased voltage. Good luck with your repair and email if you have questions.
