i think the propane regulator is controlled by engine vacuum pressure in a lot of gensets. when was the last time your valve clearances were checked? this is just a thought because if the valves are too tight it may not make the vacuum needed to open the regulator. not sure but its easy to check.

You may have a fuel issue, check that first. Check WC pressure on regulator, check shut off solenoid. Do this first.

depending on what accessories you get and the fuel type like gas diesel nat gas propane it can run a couple thousand dollars plus the install as well if city permits required it is hard to say hope this helps shop around and have it installed by someone you trust or certified bonded and insured so there is no risk of a home fire good luck.

Are there any faults listed on the control display? If display is dark then likely a battery issue. Check battery voltage with a Digital Multi Meter (DMM). It should be at least 12.5VDC.

if you have an scr pack, that has 6 pins, there are two for ac, two for gates, and two for the excitation field.
The two gate wires come off your adc controller.

Safety shutdowns:
  1. Loss of coolant
  2. High water temperature
  3. Low oil pressure
Likely one of these. If no indicators at a panel check at the connector.

There might be two reasons for the failure of generator auto start.

1. It is the ATS automatic conversion control device that does not issue the start generator command after the mains power failure or phase loss operation, or the self-starting relay failure, which causes the generator to not start itself. This situation is relatively rare.

2. It is the generator start battery failure, and this kind of situation is relatively more.

It should be 130 lbs. or better.
It may be a little lower if it has not run in a while.
