Question about Generac Guardian Series 8 kW Air-cooled Automatic Standby Generator
Why cant it handle 26 amps on black side( water heater side) 19 amps on red side(lights tv pc)tx
Posted by Anonymous on
8 kW has a 35 amp breaker on the unit. A typical hot water is 4500 watts at 240 volts = 18.75 amps on each leg. If you are measuring 26 on one side and 19 on the other it should be ok. If it is shutting down you may have a fuel problem or you may need to adjust voltage if it's too low. Which model of 8 kW is it?

fuse are meant to protect the costlier part of the machine thereby damaging itself. there is probably overloading of your circuit. call the electrician and find the actual power required by your house. there is a possibility of having a short circuit in your generator. your local electrician can check it.

I work on these every day. Its either gonna be the rotor or stater, the voltage regulator, but most likely its a bad stepper motor which is the throttle motor, or control board. Thats all that could be causing that so its one of those. If its the rotor or stater thats bad it causes the generator to RPM up because it thinks its not producing enough power due to that. I had the same problem with the same one we just fixed and it was the slip rings on the end of the rotor so bad rotor.

Since the generator starts but there is no power to the control board, there is an electrical problem inside the generator.
First check the circuit breaker at the back of your generator. If the breaker is on, then your generator is in serious trouble.
Call a repairman, but also keep in mind you may need a new generator.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
