Generator Transfer Problem
There isn't much you can do with servicing the generator set or transfer switch unless you've got lots of experience in diagnoising semi-conductors and electronic components.
Depending on the age of the system, it would be benificial to have a qualified service tech take a look at it.
As an electrician, I've installed several back up generator sets in homes for customers and have had a few of these automatic transfer switches with intermittent operation issues. Sometimes it's the switch and other times it's the Generator that is causing the problems.
Hope this helps, and best regards!

I have a Generac 5000 Watt Power Plus Mod-00413-0
Does this have an oil filter and if so wich one do i need ?!?
Regarding the advice about "Flashing" a generator.
Do you people even know what that means?
What you are doing is messing with the capacitor that is part of the voltage conversion. Likely you are burning any shorts out of the capacitor. Has noting to do with the fields or coils or rectifier.
So if you are having issues then test the capacitor and replace it.
Try your flashing and see if you don't fry the rectifier.
It amazes me that people will blindly follow something they don't understand "hoping" that something good will happen.
But if a new generator is what you want then give your old one away instead of trashing it.

Generac 11kw overspeed changed ignition coil still going into overspeed code
During engine cranking and operation the controller receives AC
voltage and frequency signals from the ignition magneto via Wire
18. Should the speed exceed approximately 72 Hz (4320 RPM),
the controller's logic will de-energize the "run relay" (internal to
the controller). The relay contacts will open terminating engine
ignition and closing the fuel shutoff solenoid; the engine will
then shut down. This feature protects the engine and alternator
against damaging over speeds. During cranking the RPM signal
generated by the magnetos is used to terminate engine cranking.

Error code 1518 on a generac generator
If you have a Generac Generator which fails to start during a power outage and gives an Error Code 1518 - RPM Sense Loss you can try and manually get the generator restarted very simply. ... The generator should wait 5 seconds and then try and auto-start up to 3 times.
