SOURCE: Generac Guardian 17.5KW Generator dies

If this is one of the big "taco cart" portables you need to check that the vent on the gas cap is open when you're running the engine. In the center of the gage on the gas cap is a little knurled knob, turn it counter clockwise (lefty loosey), about a half turn or so and run the generator.
If that doesn't solve your problem add to it here, otherwise please give me a rating I'm trying to build a little credibility here and could use the help.

SOURCE: I have a Generac portable generator 5000 watts, won't start!

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

SOURCE: My Generac G2600 has gas in the oil

this is ussually caused by a stuck float in the carb and can ussually be fixed by turning off the gas, removeing the fuel line from the carb,pulling the drain on the bottom of the carb and spraying some carb cleaner in the hose fitting. also its a good idea every time you use it to shut the gas off and let it runn till it dies. allways keep the fuel off when not in use.

What kind of oil do you use


Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

The flywheel side or the PTO side? In either case you need to disassemble the unit to get at the end and then use a hook to pull the seal out.

Generac generator will start, run for a moment and then shut down,Carb problem or bad low oil switch?


It is rather the oil switch or its level sensor, because the carb should not let it start.
