Question about Generac 5622 GP Series GP5000 6,250 Watt 389cc OHV Portable Gas Powered Gen

1 Answer

Generac Generator won't stay running

The generator starts for it's weekly timed maintenance, it starts and runs for about 40 seconds, then stops. Thenit starts again and runs for 30 seconds, and stops, then 20 seconds, etc etc, until it does this for about 5 starting attempts, when it finally stops, and will not stry to start anymore. If I stand by and wait a few minutes, and start it manually, it will start and stay runninn sometimes after a couple of attempts.
The same routine happens if the power goes off, and the generaotr is asked to come on line.

Any ideas?? Charlie

Stopped in Belt had been slipping smelled hot but motor was barely warm. Was 30 minutes into workout and machine stopped. Electric panel works but motor won't run.tilt works

time to lube the DECK belt, use WD-40 or grease. do it by each weeks. Try to loose the deck belt. in the way that you lift the belt by 2" with your finger. Otherwise, you must replace the belt+deck. See if the belt drive is to tight. And take time for maintenance the motor, replace the carbon brush+and lube the bearing.

My Kohler 17RES has stopped doing it's scheduled weekly exercise. How can I get it exercising again?

On your Automatic Transfer Switch ( the little gray box you see on the right in the picture above) you have two blue buttons. One is a Manual test switch. The other has a clock on it and this is your exercise set button. Hold it down for a FULL 3 seconds if you want it to excercise without a load (not powering your home) Hold it down for a FULL 6 seconds if you want it to exercise with a load every week. Your generator will start and run for 20 minutes, and then shut down. Now every week your generator will exercise at the time and day that you pushed the set button.

Generac Generator won't stay running

It sounds like you are not producing any voltage. When you start your generator have a volt meter on the generator breaker to see if there is voltage present when the genset is running. Also, check you oil pressure switch, which is near the oil filter.

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning

The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!
