I have a 8 kw guardian that wont start with remote start. it

Customer Question

I have a 8 kw guardian that wont start with remote start. it will start on manual and run for 15 or 20 seconds and shuts down and left in the manual position it will start again. there is no indication on the led lights why it shut down. I have by passed the low oil pressure switch and the over temp switch. I use this gen to back up my solar system at my cabin I do not use the auto start function just the remote start. I think it may be the printed circuit board. Oh and there is no power generated when the gen is running. This gen has 500 hrs. on it and model # ***** ***** (8 kw)

This may be the board, but it is more likely something else. The no power output is a problem.
