SOURCE: battery does not stay charged on my 20kw generac

WAS A 110 VOLT CIRCUIT RAN TO IT FROM THE NORMAL UTILITY POWER OF HOME OR BUILDING IT FEEDS?
NORMALLY THIS IS DONE IN A SEPERATE CONDUIT FOR CONTROL WIRES.AND THE FEEDERS ARE IN ANOTHER CONDUIT.
WITH A DIGITAL TEST METER,CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE BATTERY CHARGER IN THE GENERATOR CABINET.USUALLY THERE IS A RECEPTICAL TO PLUG THE CHARGER INTO.
IF VOLTAGE IS PRESENT AT THE BATTERY CHARGER AND INDICATOR LIGHTS ARE ON, CHANGE METER TO DC AND CHECK FOR 13.8 VOLTS OUTPUT FROM THE BATTERY CHARGER.IF YOU HAVE OUTPUT VOLTAGE TO THE BATTERY,AND IT IS DEAD,CHANGE THE BATTERY..

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU,BEST OF LUCK.....

SOURCE: I Am installing a Generac 20Kw air cooled unit

It is always good to install a large enough wire where the maximum load can be drawn plus a little extra for safety. 7 gauge wire will do, if it was mine I would use 6 gauge wire. If the length is over 20 feet but not longer than 80 feet go to the next larger size wire.

SOURCE: i have a 2.5 liter

Look for a fuse that protects a transformer that supplies the rotating field voltage. If fuse is blown, find a rectifier module that the transformer drives. Likely the rectifier has a shorted diode. Fix before replacing the fuse.

Your battery is dead..If the controller has a visible display your battery charger is most likely OK. Just put in a new Group 26R battery and set the time etc.

Generac Model 5525-1 20kw air cooled standby generator Question: How do you access the battery? I think it is behind the front panel, but can't readily see how to open/remove the front panel. Thanks!


2 bolts on top of the front panel. Take them out and then just puul up and it come off. you can then easily remove the battery but make sure the leads dont touch as they still have charger power running through them.
