How large is the genset? As long as you have at least 5K or larger you are fine unless you have another heavy load on one side like a water heater on AC mode. This can be caused by a loose connection or it may be a bad t-stat. If it works sometimes it is more likely a loose connection. Those are under the ceiling grill. See in the manual HERE. It gives you the reset procedure and also the trouble shooting steps of things to check. Also go HERE for a copy of the Service Manual for all Duo Therm A/C units. Notice the cable tests that you can perform with a VOM meter. I would print out a copy of these or at least Bookmark them so you can come back to them at any time. Lots of handy information in here. Get back to me if you need more help with this. R.J.
