is the auto transfer switch rated to handle a 60 kva gen set cus you can use a larger auto switch on a smaller gen set but it don't work the other way cus you'll be burning up wires and contactors and have a fire !

Maybe when the ignition coil heats up it will not produce any spark to the spark plug. Run the engine until it stalls and remove the spark plug and put the plug wire back on and ground the plug to the engine. See if you get spark at the electrode of the spark plug when you have some one pull the starter rope with the switch on the run position.

If it has been sitting for a while the electrical field may need to be flashed. Check falshing a generator and follow the directions. This should excite the generator and start generating again.

Get two short extension cords and cut the FEMALE end off each one. Strip back the insulation on that end. Connect the two green wires to each other, and connect the two white wires to each other.

Connect one black wire to a light switch, and connect the other black wire to a 20W appliance-type incandescent light bulb. Also run one short black wire (from a cut-off end) from the second terminal on the light bulb to the second terminal on the switch, like so:

plug -- black -- switch -- black -- bulb -- black -- plug
plug -- white ----------------------------------- white -- plug
plug -- green ---------------------------------- green -- plug

Turn the switch to the OFF position.
Start the generator. Plug one plug from your new rig into an outlet on the generator. Plug the other plug from your new rig into a wall outlet supplying 120V. With the generator running, turn the switch to the ON position.

The bulb should flash for a short while, then become steady. When it's steady, that side of the generator is flashed. Repeat for the other side of the generator if it makes 240V.

It sounds like some thing is shorted internally which would caus the generator to draw more current and load down.

how many amps are present on load side cus load might be too great for gen set ( power in watts = 120 volts x ?? Amps)

UST GG2300... | Answered on Jun 04, 2014


When the compressor starts, initially there is a very large current draw by the compressor motor. Depending on the size of the generator and compressor motor, this could cause the generator to stumble for a few seconds, but this should smooth out within 3-5 seconds.

One consideration is how many circuits and how much total wattage is being used when the generator is in service.
"Gas Powered Generator GG2300 2300 Watts Surge 2000 Watts Continuous Output 10 Hours of Run Time at Full ."
This is a relatively small generator with 2000 watts output, so the problem may be that the generator can not handle the wattage demand. You can get a pretty good estimate of the wattage demand by adding up the wattage of everything , all lights, appliances, etc that's being powered by the generator. If the total wattage is greater than the output of the generator (2000 watts) then the generator is too small.

If there is a spark at the plugs ignition is fine, spraying starter in the intake should allow it to at least fire?? even if you had a carb / fuel issue. I would recommend a compression test and better still a leakdown test to determine if you have weak compression

Although this costs a little money, it covers most home gas/electric and industrial portable kerosine/diesel fired hot water pressure washers. Worth sharing...

Check and replace the brushes, this a 95% fix on most protable generators.

OK, you have a hard to find info on model. My first thought is that your choke is still on.
Does it have a manually activated choke? If so you know what to do, after she kicks, turn it off.
If it is one of the new Auto-choke units you may need to find the choke linkage and disengage
it that way. I have asked for a manual for your from UTS. We will see what they send, or dont!
As with all engines, if left in storage for long periods of time, use fuel stabilizer and try and start
the engine every 30 days and let it run for 10-15 minutes just to warm up and keep everything moving.
