I have a Generac Guarcian propane fueled 10KW air-cooled generator. Installation date was 12/12/2011. During recent weekly runs I occasionally get the Overcrank error (1-2 X per month). It has always cleared with a reset. However, today I had to re-try 5 times before it started. Problem is increasing in frequency during last few years. Any similar experiences?

Thank you,
Dale K.

My suggestion would be to look at normal maintenance items like spark plugs and a valve adjustment before you dive too much deeper.

Thank you,
