I had the same problem. My problem was the oil sensor. Unplug the oil sensor wite and see if it starts. If it does the order a new one, they are about 12 bucks

Recently purchased UST 5500 from Pep Boys. Had same problem during engine break in period. Found that the carb will not draw gas when generator is on level surface. Mine has the wheel kit and it causes the fuel inlet to be at highest point in tank. If you block up the wheels and change the angle of the tank it will improve fuel line pickup. Also check gap on plug, mine was way off from factory. Also check the routing of the spark plug wire and make sure it is not getting forced off the plug by tension from breather hose. Once the engine starts make sure to push choke back in, it will run for a good while choked but it will eventually shut off if you don't push choke back in. Hope this helps. Took me awhile to discover the fuel feed issue.

I don't get enough current to welder electrodes. only half of the power for my receptacles unless the motor is run at high speed. my controller board has signs evident of overheating around some components...


The fact that you can burn a rod when you bypass the governor on engine tells me that your generator must be getting week. Needing new brushes perhaps?

Miller welder starts fine bur appear to run out gas need help adjuting linkage to fuel control


you need to adjust the throttle governor on the side of the carburetor you will see a adjustment screw do a weld to get the welder to runs at high speed then adjust the screw till it runs continuously, if it still dies out change the fuel filter and try again drain the carburetor bowel if it's diesel replace fuel filter and run fuel threw the water trap.

UST GG5500 generator no A/C output when I first start


Plug something into the outlet and have the breaker on when you start the generator. If it has an automatic idle control, turn that on too. A load will energise the generator.
