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: It is a Guardian-Generac Generator Model 0052410.

My cousin has one of these models and the same thing happened to his. It was the natural gas regulator valve that went out. He could hear the clicking noise which is the spark ignitor trying to ignite the gas pilot light. After replacing the gas regulator the unit work fine as ever

2 bolts on top of the front panel. Take them out and then just puul up and it come off. you can then easily remove the battery but make sure the leads dont touch as they still have charger power running through them.

WHAT DOES SENSE LOSS MEAN


RPM Sense loss means that the generator controller hasn't received a valid signal from the ignition coils for 3 seconds of attempting to start. Probably a dead or low battery or bad ignition coil. Replace the battery and try again. Call dealer if problem persist.

Over crank


Over crank is just that, cranking and cranking for a timed period without a run signal. Make sure the fuel solenoid is opening and you have the correct gas pressure. Too much pressure can stop it opening. Then check you have a spark at the plugs, this will eliminate ignition, and you can re-focus on the fuel system. You didn't say it was LP or Nat gas

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on


Indicator Lights:
1.Headset Status Headset Indicator Light
2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when
battery is fully charged and headset is off.
6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:
1.Turn on the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
tones.
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

The battery could be bad. Try to measure the battery voltage when you try to start. If the battery is bad then the voltage will drop quite low when the battery is loaded with trying to start the set. If you can borrow a similar battery you could just try with it.

Generac 43903 standby Generator overspeed indicator on starting


I have a generator that did the same thing. It would start and then stop within a few seconds. The more expensive generators have an oil level safety switch to prevent the engine from burning up. There is usually a wire connecting to the switch on the outside of the engine near the oil fill hole. Remove this wire and try to start the generator. If it runs without a problem then it is the switch. You need to remove the switch and take it apart carefully and clean it. There is a small float inside the assembly. When the oil runs low the float allows the switch to short to ground which kills the spark to the spark plug. Hope that helps.

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)
