Fouled carburetor
Fouled spark plug

Start by draining fuel tank including carburetor bowl. Go to filling station with dry/clean fuel container and get 2 gallons of fresh gasoline.

Return to the "service guy" and have him do the job right.

The overload fault is indicating that your connected load is overloading the generator capacity and it's tripping off. Check your connected load (what ever is hooked up that you're trying to power). You need to use an amp meter to verify the amp draw, and also the rated voltage output. If it's low voltage, could be low engine RPM or voltage regulator. high current indicates a problem with load your trying to power, ie-- Motor or other load.

Appearing good and IS good is two different things. Use an ohmmeter to test continuity on the fuse. also look at the traces on the display board for open conditions or scorched components.

What Does the Yellow Light on My Generator Mean

Generac... | Answered on Nov 21, 2018

reset default on startup to search all

Generac... | Answered on Nov 09, 2018

The green light means it is in the auto mode and ready for another power outage. It should be on whenever it is in the auto mode and the battery is connected.
The yellow light means it is time to service the engine, the oil, the oil and air filter and then a reset . The green light comes on after a certain number of hours run time. I di not know if this is 10 or 20 or 50 hours, but it is a time thing. Does you unit have the reset button or do you remove a battery cable for 20 minutes?

If it has been sitting for awhile since last used, this is a common problem. The fuel has sat and gummed up and clogged the fuel passage ways through your carburetor.
One trick to clear the passages is to try to get fuel into the generator when starting by spraying carburetor cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake of the generator. Sometimes if you can the the motor to run it will suck on the fuel line hard enough to clear out the gummed up fuel stuck in the lines. Caution: if you use starting fluid, just give it small puffs from the can. Too much can blow up the engine or flood the spark plug.
