Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello!My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
What is the full model number of the genset, exactly as it is written on the data label?
What fault code is the genset showing?
I would need the fault code to know where to start looking.
But just from what you are describing, it sounds like you have a bad demand regulator, and it is not allowing the proper volume of gas to get to the engine.
While it is flashing the 3 times, press the STOP button 1 time.
Hank, I got a 13.
Code 13 on this unit is Under Voltage.
There are many things that can be causing this - bad brushes, bad slip rings, bad rotor or stator windings, bad controller, bad drive system, or a fuel supply issue.
What you need to do right now is to get this unit connected to a load bank, to obtain accurate voltage and frequency readings under varying loads to determine where the problem actually is.
If the engine is noticeably slowing down, then yes, it is most likely a fuel issue - but it is still good to have a load test done.
There is no fuel filter on an LP unit - just the piping and regulators.
