The generator shuts off after 30 minutes with an oil level alert but oil level if full


Your oil level sensor is bad. It needs to be replaced. If you unplug the wire leads to the sensor you may get the generator to run, but you'll have no low oil level/pressure protection. The oil level sensor is on the engine crankcase usually near the oil level dipstick. You'll likely see a small sensor with a couple of wires attached to it. To replace it, you'll need to drain your engine crankcase before removing the sensor.

Runs but shuts off automatac


check the oil, most of these have a low oil shut down. If it's full make sure it's sitting level while running. If it still shuts down and is full of oil and level, bypass the low oil shutoff and see if it stays running.

Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!


You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

Low oil lights and engine shuts down


Give the unit a good shake. Possible that the float that sits in the oil sump is stuck. It sits on the oil and sends a shut down signal if the oil level is low. A sticky float will give this false signal.

My 5000 watt Homelite Generator will start on the first pull but then runs for about 2 to 5 seconds and dies or it gets rough and then dies. I have cleaned the carburator and checked the full line for flow...


If you have an oil level switch on this generator, it could be that you have low oil level or the switch is bad. Check the oil level. Bypass the oil level switch.

How old is the fuel in the tank, and how full is the tank? Fuel goes bad with time due to the ethonol turning to gummy varnish like substance. Not keeping a tank full allows condensation to form on the inner walls, contaminating the fuel with water. Drain the tank completely and fill with new gasoline.

How did you "clean the carb?" If it was not completely disassembled, soaked in carb cleaner, and all jets and ports blown out with air, you could have blockages from the "bad gas."

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.

I have a honda 8.0 GX240 on a generator and when i go to start it. It acts like it isnt getting a spark the engine isnt turning over i checked the plug and fuel lines and still nothing


Is there sufficient oil in the crankcase? Most all generators have an oil level sensor that shuts down the ignition if the oil level gets low.

Generator starts then instantly stalls


If your generator has an oil pressure or level sensor (sending unit), trying to operate the unit off level or with low oil will trip the sending unit and shut down ignition. If the sending unit is bad, it will shut down the ignition. This really applies to those units that have electric start where the start button bypasses the oil sending unit for pressure. Low oil sending units typically don;t let it start at all.
