Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 7 kW Auto Standby Generator
Replaced the motors head gasket and reinstalled the motor/generator. After reinstalling, and hooking up all the wires, the propane motor will start and then shut down after about 30 seconds. Oil level is correct. Tried disconnecting both the oil switch and pressure switch and it makes no difference. It is not throwing any codes.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

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).

There really is not much you can do without voiding your warranty. This may be something simple like a connector that vibrated loose inside the control panel. (Alternator to contol panel inter-connect) There could also be a wire lying loose that was not connected. Open the control panel... and look for anything obviously out of place. DO NOT do anything else. After that your stuck with the warranty process of Briggs and Stratton.
When your at a B & S service / repair point... (store front)
Things to note .
1. Tell servicer unit is for PRIVATE USE (There is no warranty for commercial use)
2. Have proof of purchase in hand otherwise they will use the MFG date as the start point of the warranty. Many generators sit in a warehouse or on the shelf long past an implied warranty (date of mfg) Bottom line you need to have your sales slip.
There are several things I could have you do but... as the consumer the only thing you can do is perform an inspection. By opening the control panel you need to tell the servicer the only thing you did was a VISUAL Inspection...... Anything else will void your warranty.
So.. look for any obviously loose parts or or connectors. After that sadly your stuck with dealing with warranty service.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
