Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
Error code 1505 is RPM Sense Lost. It means that the controller can not sense how fast the engine is running.
Your unit is still under warranty, and you need to contact an authorized Generac repair facility to have this repaired under warranty.
