Customer Question

I have a B&S Standby Generator model 040234 connected to an automatic transfer switch model 071009-01. The generator runs continuously when there is no power failure. It started one day out of the blue and I must place the main switch in the OFF position to prevent it from restarting. I replaced the control panel (311353GS) on the generator with no relief. I checked the two 2 AMP 500 volt fuses in the transfer switch that provide utility voltage to the generator and found that they were blown. I replaced them and the system set up properly and stayed quiet for about 3 days. Then it started one night and the same symptoms - won't shut down. I found that the fuses were again blown. Any suggestions? I am a competent electrical troubleshooter. Has there been any reports of this before? What were the causes and cures? Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

I am just seeing if you still need assistance with this problem? The reason I ask is because I see that your question has not been answered sooner and I wanted to make sure if you still needed help.

In some cases a question may sit due to several different things including the amount of the deposit/question value, time it was asked, the complexity of the question, number of experts that can help you at a certain time, lack of detailed info and so on. My objective that I wish is to make sure that if you still need help that I can at the very least reach out to you and attempt to help you.
