I have a 8kw Generac. The yellow light has come on, along with the green light. The displays say something about checking the battery.
I replaced the battery 3 years ago and had the generator serviced last year.
Is this a timed message urging me to check the battery, or has it found something wrong?
It says the battery voltage is 14.2v, so it seems like it is good.
I don't have a hygrometer. Should I get one, or is just making sure the level is high enough adequate?
According to the manual, I turn it to off, remove the 7.5a fuse, and turn off the utility power before working on the battery. Is that right? (I know the service man has never turned off the utility power, as he has never been in the house)
I always pull the T1 fuse in the transfer switch before pulling a battery cable off so that the battery charger circuit is shut off.
Also, this is a timed service check. if you hit the enter button two times it will clear the alert.
