SOURCE: my standby generator is just cranking but wont turn all the way

If it was installed only five months ago, it should still be under warranty. Call Home Depot and have them send out a repair person.

SOURCE: Recently a Generac 17kw natural gas generator was

There will be a normal odor as the engine cranks until enough gas is in the intake for starting. Gas generators do not have an ignition 'on-off' switch, they use a fuel solenoid to turn on and off the gas to start and kill the engine. If you are uneasy, your local gas company should be able to check engine compartment for leaks. Here in my home town, the gas company will inspect any equipment for gas leaks and/or carbon monoxide levels free of charge.

Testimonial: "Tks for the feedback on this problem, it is very informative. The faint gas odor persists when idle. Would this suggest a defective solenoid."

I have a toy hauler with a generac generator propane that wont start getting gas and spark but wont start model 04164-0


Check the comprssion, if you are sure you have a spark and gas. Is the fuel been delivered to the cylinders? Check the fuel solenoid for power, if power is present the demand gas regulator maybe gummed up. LP companies put a waxy lubricant in the gas and over time this can build up and harden in regulators. Also during crank observe the throttle is it going open as it should? if not suspect a control issue

You did not specify fuel. If running natural gas or propane, check the diameter of your feed line. You need at least 1/2 to 3/4 pipe diameter on the NG or propane. At 60KW I would guess at least 3/4 maybe larger for NG.

Need adjustment procedure for a Generac Centurion generator, carb and regulator under full load


Before you adjust anything, suggest you verify gas line for proper pressure and importantly volume. Pressure for gas should be 5 to 7 inches and propane 11 to 14 inches W.C. Also make sure the line to the generator is sized properly and the gas meter is a high volume unit (if NG). 90% we find the problem with generator sunder load that otherwise are fine are fuel related. Good luck.

LPG / NG portable generator runs on propane but wont run on natural gas


While propane and natural are similar, some devices require changes to properly operate on the selected fuel.

Information about this should be in the owners manual for the unit.

An off the cuff guess is that the gas pressure from the NG source isn't high enough, or that there is a gas regulatior on the generator that would need to be adjusted for NG.

Start runs shutsdown


Typically caused by the fuel line (LP or Natural Gas) having a lot of air in it. Was your generator just installed, or was there any work done to the gas line of the building / generator? Consult local gas contractor / propane dealer / gas company for assistance in purging the fuel line.

A low battery can also cause this as well as the generator is not able to come up to starting speed quick enough. Try placing a stand alone battery charger on the generator and charge the battery. Also check the air filter as well.

OverCrank condition occurs when generator tries to start itself, or be manually started, and the starter spends too much time turning.

This can also indicate failure of the control board. This will need the expertise of generac technician. Call 1-888-GENERAC (1-888-436-3722)
