You can use a ATS ( automatic transfer switch).
TS (automatic transfer switch) is mainly used in emergency power supply system to automatically switch the load circuit from one power source to another (standby) power source to ensure continuous and reliable operation of important loads. Therefore, ATS is often used in critical power supply places, and its product reliability is particularly important.

I have solved the flooding problem . unfortanetly you must remove the carb to fix it. once you remove the carb you need to remove the fuel bowl. In the bottem of the fuel bowl there is a electronic seloniod that controols the amount of fule going to combustion. this aria had varnish and gunk built up around the plunger of the selonoid, long story short clean this out with carb and chook cleaner and put it back together. start her up and she will run like a champ.

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.

Wire 0 = ground
Wire 194 (15B) = + battery

    Generator runs,no power at breakers or output plug,has been started and shutdown under load. 5.7 volts on wires coming from stator. All three wires.this is on a motor home.


    have the unit checked by an authorized generator repair shop
    if it was operating when shore power came back on there is every possibility that the generator or inverter has been damaged from the lack of synchronization of the sine wave

    Generac 40kw single phase generator starter engages after 30sec of running


    For the over voltage there is an adjustment on the control board.
    Should be tested with a load something plugged in.
    The hertz might just come on when under load and adjusted too.
    If you need more give a model number and whether it is 13kw or 40kw.

    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)
