Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

To reset the controller, turn the switch to the OFF position, and pull the control fuse.

Wait 10 - 15 seconds, and reinstall the fuse.

Note that by resetting the controller, you will also need to reset the exercise timer when you reinstall the fuse.

Removing the fuse as you suggested did not turnoff the red high temp light. I am going to contact a generator service technician in the area to come and service the generator. Thanks for the help
Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 1 month ago

I am a certified Generac technician. That is the reset procedure.

If it did not work, there is a problem in the genset that must be corrected. It could be a shorted wire, a bad temperature switch, or a bad controller.
