    The tms are in the section top of the forum page. There are step by step troubleshooting. If you download them and start troubleshooting, and still get stuck, you can at least post how far you got in the process. Making it easier for someone to offer advice.

    Search for overspeed to find location of overspeed reset switch (P39/119). Page 54/119 has "2-8 INITIAL ADJUSTMENTS, DAILY CHECKS
    AND SELF TEST" that will show how to set up machine for start up. Page 55/119 has "2-9 OPERATING PROCEDURE." that will show you how to start it up.

    And don't forget to drop a ground rod.

    Lets start again. Did this gen set ever work right? Is it new to you? Did you reset the fault indicator?

    Did you reset the fault on the fault indicator and the over speed reset?
