If your automatic standby generator is unable to properly run at any time, the unit's control panel should display a corresponding error code, indicating a particular alarm is active on the unit. Not being able to identify the particular alarm that your unit is currently experiencing, it is difficult for us to attempt to diagnose the potential cause of your unit's current issues. However, given the symptoms that you have described, what we can recommend are the following troubleshooting steps:
First, we would recommend checking the voltage state of your unit's battery; a dead battery cannot be charged and would need to be replaced. You can also make sure that the unit is properly configured for liquid propane use, and ensure that the fuel pressure provided to the unit is adequate; these tasks can be performed by your local fuel line provider. Additionally, we would recommend checking the unit's spark plug (replace if necessary), and making sure that the spark plug boot is installed properly. If the unit is overloaded, reduce the loads placed on the generator. Also, if the oil level is low, fill the unit appropriately for optimal use. Lastly, we would recommend checking to see if the air filter needs replacing, or if the air filter housing is cluttered by debris. If after performing these tasks your current issues persist, we would recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area for diagnostic work.
