I am a missionary in Honduras and have a Generac Model 0057341. I bought it with only about 15 hrs use on it and it set for about 2 yrs before i was ready to hook it up and use it. I took the carburetor off and cleaned it good before I tried t start it. It started up and ran rough for a little while but smoothed out eventually. I checked all of the outputs and everything seemed fine. No long after this, I hooked it up to the transfer switch after we lost power and suddenly the idle rev'd up out of control and it acted like the motor was going to blow up. I have looked for a service manual to try to troubleshoot it but can't find one. I just came across to this forum and thought to give a shot at getting some help.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure some of the folks here are familiar with that model and symptom.

In the meantime, there are several partial manuals and other info available on the Generac site here:

I've seen these go wild when the bulkhead connectors behind the control panel come loose. Check them good before we go any further!

Sorry I have been really tied up with other things and just didn't check back here to see if anyone replied. I guess I expected to get an email notification and didn't.

I will look at the connections. I'm afraid it has been sitting so long I will have to do something about a dead battery.
