I have a Guardian 0056100 generator. First noticed power out but it did not transfer power to house.
Turned unit off.
Now, turning it on a couple weeks later, it is stuck in the exerciser mode.
Each time the exercise finishes, it starts up again.

Any ideas?

Is there evidence of an ant infestation?

Hi Chris,

Are you suggesting that I remove the housing over the control board and check the wiring and any contactors that could have insect deposits?

Have you ever heard of a unit stuck in the exercise mode?

Thanks

Dave

Normally when I hear a strange complaint like this, it's due to an ant infestation. Can you take a picture of the top of the controller?
