SOURCE: diesel mixed with oil in the sump

You run again the generator but before running, check & mark the oil level. Then stop the generator & wait until the oil settle to the bottom of oil pan. Check the oil level again & if the oil level is higher than the marking before that's means you have an engine gasket leak.You need to replace that gasket.

SOURCE: Generator won't run

DId you change the oil filter when you changed the oil I am assuming it has one.

If it has a filter some of them have a check valve in side and this valve may not be operating properly.Also you might try rolling it over a few times with the pressure sensor removed and see if oil spurts out the opening. If so then the problem may be the oil pump not building up oil pressure, or the motor may have a board looking for the oil pressure sensor to close (or open depending on how its engineered) and the sensor board is not working properly or not grounded good. Try cleaning the battery cables just in case (assuming it ahs a battery).

Generator runs good but when light is plugged in it lights up then goes back off after 15 seconds then comes back on.

Check the rotor slip rings in the generator end for tarnish, and also the brushes. It would not hurt to check the capacitor also in the alternator. If the unit has sat for a long period of time, let it run for a long period, this will help build the rotor magnetism back up (with nothing plugged in) if it still does the same thing, then have the rotor flashed, this is done by applying a correctly polarized battery voltage to the rotor for approx 3 seconds. It may have enough residual left thus powering your lights then it bleeeds off. Let it run for a while no load and it may increase

Natural gas generator shuts down after about 5 minutes and won't keep running.

How big a unit? Model number? Alarm codes? If it runs for 5 mins check the obvious, coolant level, oil pressure and sensor,

Yamaha 6500 watt diesel runs but usually shuts

First thing to monitor is the fuel solenoid power. See if it is the thing that goess away to cause shutdown.

Tracing this back there is only a few things that control this: The battery, the low oil shutdown switch, and the run switch, and associated wiring.

If I were to ventture a guess, I would put money on the low oil shutdown switch.
