Generac troubleshooting my generac 14kw generator engine runs why doesn*t it produce electricity


Assuming the generator circuit breaker is on, depending on the model it could be the voltage regulator or the slip ring brushes or both. If it's a portable it could be a capacitor problem.

Surging


It definately sounds like a fuel problem, lack of fuel..I assume it is running on LP or natural gas. The hose running from the demand regulator goes to the carburetor/mixer. When it gets to the carburetor, there is an adjustable main jet. It is different on different models, but is usually easy to find. There is probably a screw slot in the end of the screw head and a spring under the head. Start it up after locating the screw and open the jet just enough to even out the running. It was factory set, but barometric pressure and altitude and different fuels in different areas will decessitate different settings.
Please let me know if this fixes your problem, Robert

14kw kohler propane generator-sometimes does not start, put battery jumper on and it starts. Battery is new, but had the same problem with the old battery.


The battery charger is defective, as you can start it by jumping it off means it is just a low battery. without it running measure battery voltage, it should be around 12V then plug the charger back in, it should climb to around 13.8B with a good battery. If not have the float charger checked.
