Question about Guardian Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Hello, I installed my 10 kw #5871 guardian yesterday 2/24/11. The propane pressure was checked at all loads and never dropped. It is set at the manuals recommendation. At mid to full load it runs smooth but at low load which is much of the time it is surging alot. The voltage is 244/122. Is there any adjustment to smooth out the electronic govener?

I had to find out through a Generac Service Tech that the Idle screw needs to be turned down so it doesnt surge. I found this out after a surge blew $400 worth of electronics out in my home. I have a surge protector now I recommend you do the same. DG

I have a Kohler 12 RES home standby generator. Once in a while when the power goes out the generator will start and then immediately shut down with no fault codes. When I flip the control in the unit


Check the inlet fuel pressure, on exervise there is no load, when power is out it is loaded and demands more fuel. Also check for bugs blocking gas regulators vents etc

i think the propane regulator is controlled by engine vacuum pressure in a lot of gensets. when was the last time your valve clearances were checked? this is just a thought because if the valves are too tight it may not make the vacuum needed to open the regulator. not sure but its easy to check.

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.

I have a 10 KW Generac Guardian Stand By withe a prwired EZ transfer swithc. Everything works except the 12 volts battery charger. What could be the problem. Only have three weeks innstalled.


Your generator is equipped with a battery trickle
charger that is active when your unit is set up for
automatic operation. The trickle charger is
designed to help extend the life of your battery by
maintaining the battery when the unit is
not running.
you will need to review which circuit bord controls this and have that board replaced or serviced some of these gen heads have this built in and it will be the rectifier in the gen it self it will be a black 1x1x3/8 inch with a mounting hole in the center and 4 lug post for the wires replace this and your issue should be solved but consult your dealer for witch unit you have as to a control board external or the built in rectifier hope this helps.

10kw Generac shut down overspeed


Make sure that the throttle linkage is all there and not damaged/misadjusted, then get a manometer and check your inlet gas pressure. Gas pressure should be 8 inches of water column and stay there running or not.

You may be able to use these with "standard" DSL, which generally does require PPPoe (a username and password, basically). But you'd certainly need to have an ISP providing DSL service, the correct wiring drop to the device, and your DSL provider would need to support this particular device on their network.

These are not routers, per se, they are really just DSL modems.
