SOURCE: dont have 12 volts to start switch generac guardian ultra source

Have you checked the fuse? Mine keeps blowing the fuse (located on the back of the control panel) with each startup and shutdown or use of idle control.

SOURCE: my fuel lines became rotten and i'm not sure how

A bit more time consuming and requires patience more than skill on this task.

First, only take off 1 of the fuel lines at a time. That way you can make sure you put the right hose on the right fitting.

Let's start with the line with the filter. Take the line off the carburetor. Cut a bit of it and go to a mower repair shop to get your new fuel line. Get about 2 feet. That's about double what you need, but will probably waste some in the process. When you get the new line, cut a sharp point at 1 end. Get a needle nose pliers and reach into your fuel tank and pull out the filter and the rest of the fuel line. Get a fairly fine wire, wrap it around the pointed end of the new fuel line. Snake the wire into the tank and out the small hole. This will help you pull the new hose into the tank and out the hole. This might take a bit of time. When you get the new hose out, square off the end and push it on the carb fitting. Cut the hose where it enters the tank and slip your fuel filter on and drop into the tank. 1 down and 1 to go.

Host #2 can be put into the tank the same as #1, or you can try to push it in from the top. May work with a little lubrication. Hook #2 up to the carb.

This should get you up and running.

SOURCE: Need a thermal cutoff for our Lakewood 5500

We have these heaters and haven't had a fuse fail yet. I think it's because after the first time I got that crackling sound after moving it while it was on, I stopped doing that, and only move it with the power off, and wait two minutes before restarting it, so the oil can resettle.

However, the thermostats are now failing. Anyone know if this part is available?

SOURCE: VX-5500 LowBand change power to 20 or 50 watt to suit power amplifier.

The channels can be programmed for either low or high power on a per channel basis. Perhaps I do not understand what you are doing? It would be easy to program each channel to 20 watts. I would take the high power and turn it down since the low power setting from the factory is usually under 20 watts.

5500 watt generator will not run my 2hp air compressor


5500 watt generator will meet the 1491.4 watt requirement of the 2 hp compressor motor
given that 5500 watts generator is rated continuously at around 4500 watts and will handle spikes to the 5500 watts when electrical components start there should be plenty left
consider the possibility or a motor below full capacity, carby problem ( jets blocked , water, blocked air filter not getting full throttle from the governor lever, worn rings, type of fuel in use --E mix)

Generac home generator does not start. It starts alittle bit but then dies. Maybe runs for 4-6 seconds


is this unit diesel or gas? If its gas driven, the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned out. Also make sure your gas is fresh. If not drain fuel tank, remove carb, clean out, re-assemble & test. Check fuel filter, oil level.

VALSI 5,500 WATT GENERATOR WILL NOT START


All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
