I was running my Farymann
4000 today (3hrs) and it suddenly stopped. When I try to start it, the pre-heat works fine on the control panel
. But then when I try to start it, I can hear the generator
turning over and almost starting but there is a loud buzzing coming from the control panel
. It seems almost that the control panel is stopping the generator
from starting up.
Is this meant to happen? Is there a way to bypass the control panel (start without it) to check this? Is it possible the control panel is malfunctioning? Or is it another issue like overload?
For info, there is no error warnings under the oil
lights. The load meter lights don't work
so I am unable to see load but there is no load on the generator during startup. The starter battery
voltage is 12.9V and the generator is starting over ok.
