Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to activate Generac generator?

Your automatic standby generator requires activation in order to operate automatically. This is a simple one-time process that only takes a few minutes and will also serve as the product registration.

What is the phone number for Generac activation?

If this is an EMERGENCY service issue, please contact Generac Customer Support at 1-888-GENERAC (1-888-436-3722) for assistance.

How does Generac generate power?

Unlike a portable generator, a Generac standby generator operates on natural gas or liquid propane gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. The automatic standby generator is a backup electrical system that operates whether you are home or away.

What spins to activate the generator?

In a turbine generator, a moving fluid—water, steam, combustion gases, or air—pushes a series of blades mounted on a rotor shaft. The force of the fluid on the blades spins/rotates the rotor shaft of a generator. The generator, in turn, converts the mechanical (kinetic) energy of the rotor to electrical energy.

How does an automatic generator start?

So if the voltage gets low on the battery, it will signal the generator to start. When the batteries reach a certain state of charge it will signal the generator to stop. It will also operate on the standard charge, or battery monitor, if that’s in the system.

What do Generac generators run on?

Our Generac home backup generators are designed to run on one fuel source. They are factory set to run on natural gas, however; at the time of installation, your generator can be reconfigured to run on liquid propane.

When a generator won’t start?

One of the most common reasons a generator will not start is due to a battery failure. Often this could be caused by a loose connection or a sulfation build-up (a build-up of lead sulphate crystals on the plates of lead-acid batteries).

What causes a generator to stop working?

The most common cause of portable generators failing to produce electricity is from the loss of residual magnetism. Generators work by moving electrical conductors through a magnetic field.
