I assume this is an RV/Camper.
Leave the generator running for a few moments before making the "Flip"
Need more info to make troubleshooting easier...,
Please supply what equipment you have
Is this the factory Generator?

a three Lights in the fixture should have two wires from each lamp coming together in the center. They should have been crimped at the Factory with One Black wire,and One white wire... of not, verify each pair of wires are colored Black and White..
Connect all white wires to the White wire in the Electrical box, and all the black wires to the Black wire in the electrical box...Turn off the switch and circuit breaker before work.

Your RV and others have a "Transfer Switch"...
Follow the exterior cable coming from the electrical INLET mounted on the outside of the RV.
It should go to a junction box, or the actual transfer switch.
May have the problem there... Bad Contactor or the Electronics are not seeing the Generator...

Four Black wires twisted together are "Hot".
Three of the white wires along with a white wire from the fixture which is connected to the silver screw, are your "Neutral" of the Circuit.
The fourth white coming in from the four lines is connected to the brass screw of the fixture... this is Coming from the "Wall Switch". this I believe is "Hot" from the switch.
Put your Fixtures Black wire on this white wire... the fixtures white wire goes to the other white wires...

if the oil need frequent topping up it can only dissapear in 2 ways a leak or the engine is very worn and is burning it.
a worn engine is also a cause for oil presssure dropping once the engine has warmed up probably worn main and big end bearings on the crankshaft as you will know oil is thicker when cold so oil pressure is increased

probably only from Deutz but you can get the information from workshop manuals for Deutz trucks as the engines are basically the same in construction

Don't panic. There are a number of quick steps you can run through before you dig out the receipt and call the professionals.

1. Check the Fuel

We know; it's like being told to check that the kettle is plugged in. But one of the most common reasons for portable generator failure is simply that it might not have sufficient fuel. Especially if the last time you used it was last year. As well as checking the quantity of fuel, be sure to check the fuel quality as fuel can degrade while in storage. If this has happened and it has clogged up the engine, you might need to call a mechanic for help.

2. Check the Oil

Many portable generators feature automatic oil checks and will shut down automatically if the oil level becomes too low. Check the oil level with the dipstick and if necessary, add oil to meet the full level.

Yes, absolutely you need a fourth wire as a neutral wire if it is a 3 phase connection other wise you can manage with the single phase four wire system.

The most common cause of portable generators failing to produce electricity is from the loss of residual magnetism.

Generators work by moving electrical conductors through a magnetic field. Your generator does not have magnets. The magnetic field is created by taking some of the generator output voltage and converting it to DC and feeding it to a coil to make an electromagnet.

When there is a small amount of magnetism left over from the last time the generator was running, it is called residual magnetism. The little bit of magnetism is enough to produce a small amount of electricity. This small amount of electricity is needed to create an even stronger electric magnet. As the engine turns this magnet moving its electric field, through the stator windings, your generator produces even more power.

When the residual magnetism is lost, the generator will produce no power at start-up. This residual magnetism can be lost naturally from not being used or from the load on your generator being connected when the generator is shut off. It can also happen from running a generator with no load for too long.

Generators need to work and it helps maintain that residual magnetism. When they are running, a load should be connected to it. It helps create an even stronger magnetic field. Before you shut it off, turn off the switch or breaker to disconnect the load. If you shut off a generator with the load connected, it can essentially drain or demagnetize the electromagnet. Try and avoid running out of fuel.

How to fix it:

There are a few methods of restoring a generator residual magnetism

12 Volt Generator Battery Method

Locate the voltage regulator for your generator.
Unplug the two wires that connect to the generator brushes. Normally one is red and the other is black or white.
Connect the black or white to the generator ground battery terminal.
Plug in a light, turn on the generator breaker or switch and start the motor.
Connect the battery +12 volts (red cable) to the red wire on the terminals you removed for three seconds.
Remove your wires and replace the plug. The generator should now be producing power again.

burned, dress smooth with file or fine stone. Do not
use emery paper or emery cloth. Measure gap with
thickness gauge; gap points at .020-inch (0.51 mm).
Ignition breaker points, Figure 16, must be correctly
gapped. Crank engine to fully open breaker points
(1/4 turn after top center). Loosen locking screws (A)
and turn cam (B) tQ adjust. Tighten breaker points
and recheck gap.
Ignition points should break contact just as the 20-
degree timing mark aligns with the flywheel timing
mark. Final timing is corrected by properly shifting
the breaker point box on its mounting and using a
timing light. If specified timing cannot be obtained by
positioning the breaker box, make sure timing marks
on gears are aligned.

not enough information to answer. gas or propane?. if new,generator by it's very nature generates energy,and thereby heat. even coiled wires can get warm. what part is hot?
if you've owned it a while, and it is inordinately hot as compared to prior uses, is it lubricated ? running normal otherwise?

Electrical... | Answered on Aug 15, 2018

Make sure all of the vents, on the engine are free of dirt. Check carb adjustment and adjust as needed
