SOURCE: engine dies

Your carburator is gummed up !
Take the float bowl on the bottom of the carb and spray the main fuel jet out with cleaner, do this to the idle needle valve also. If that don't work pull the carb & take apart & soak overnight in parts cleaner & blow out all ports & orfices with compressed air.
Next time you store your generator with gas in it , use a fuel stabilizer !
Good luck !

My 3500 watt Coleman genset with a Briggs and S engine starts fine but shuts down after 10 mins to 1 hr of running. then starts again on the first pull??


Most likely oil sending unit or fuel vacuum lock. Easy to check. Run with gas cap loose to allow air into tank. if it still shuts down, temporarily disconnect oil sensor. If the oil sensor is giving false reading and shutting down the engine, just leave disconnected, however, be diligent about checking oil level. Good luck.

13 HP Engine GX390 OHV Horizontal Shaft. runs perfectly fine/pressure fine for 2 to 3 minutes then shuts off. Have to restart over and over and over. Checked oil, no smoke, took air filter off, cleaned...


Check that the fuel tank is not creating a vacuum. this will starve the engine. After it shuts down the vacuum dissipates and lets the fuel run into the carb again.

Getting fuel in oil on 19hp b&s motor. Cleaned carb and drained oil, fresh oil and started motor, motor ran for 3 or 4 minutes then had to use a little choke to keep running and then it started...


How long did it take to do this job..did you clean the the carb first...then the oil or vise versa...the reason I as is ma y if these motors are equipped with an electric valve on the carb that go bad or stuck allowing the gas to continue flowing after shut down eventually in the intake valves and into the crankcase...causing smoke and high crankcase pressure and out the carb and exhaust...no use changing it WILL happen again..the fix is simple put an inline gas shut off and shut it off if only shut down for minutes...happened to my 18 horse Briggs...just shut it off every time you turn the engine off..Hope this helps..good luck..

I have a powermate 5500 that shuts off after 10-15 minutes. I changed the oil, gas, spark plug and the filters. Help!!!


If the unit has a low oil shut down make sure the oil if filled to the proper full level.
If you have the proper level then you can locate the low oil shut down wire and remove the wire to test and see if the unit will run.

If the unit runs with the wire off then you either have low oil or a bad oil sending unit.

Generac 5623 GP6500 8000 Watt 389cc ohv will not stay running. Will only run for a few minutes then quit and then usually can't restart.


if the gerator runs pretty smooth up until then, i would suggest checking/changing your oil as the low oil level switch is picking up on a slight change in the oil level (easier to detect when oil is hot), if it start to give hesitation or reduction of power, check the choke, make sure its off.

Coleman Powermate 10 HP Generator shuts down after a few minutes.


I have an HM100 on a 5500 watt gen with the same problem. This motor calls for a J17 spark plug, but I found using a J19 (hotter) plug solved the problem. I think the J17 doesn't get hot enough for a complete combustion burn so it act like fuel starvation thus resulting in the black sooty and wet plug.
