Generac 4000xl runs a few minutes then acts like it's seizing up

Eeeeeeek! Thats not good! Sorta like a grinding sound? If it's under warranty take it in! Might be the "winding" where the electric is created.

Generac generator won't turn off in automatic

It is possibly a transfer switch issue, not the generator control board. Have an electrican kill utility power, let it start and run, then disconnect the sensing wires in the ATS. If it stops problem is ATS

Generac 4000xl carberator keeps flooding, engine is a gn220 when its is running it starts to soot up like it is getting to much fuel I have tried everything I could think of and cannot get it to quiet...

You have a problem with the carb float valve. It is no longer sealing causing fuel to continue to flow into the float bowl after it is full. It may be dirty, out of adjustment or just need to be replaced because old and worn out.

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.
