SOURCE: Coleman Powermate 6250 only runs with choke closed/air restricted

A call to Elliott Small Engine solved my problem - Oil Guard. I had checked the oil and it was just a little low but seemed well within the normal range. I was told to add more, bringing it just over the Full mark. It seems that the low oil protection system is very sensitive and shuts down the engine even when the oil is withing 1/8" of the mark. I added about 2-3 oz of oil and no more problems

SOURCE: have a colemene powermate that will not stay started

Check the Oil. If it is low, the Low Oil cutout will shut the engine off after a few seconds. If the oil is full, try disconnecting the oil sensor. If this makes it run, you will need to diagnose and repair the cutout system.

SOURCE: My Kohler Confidant IV generator starts and runs

Kohler generators feed the generated voltage back into the control circuit board to tell it to keep the fuel pump (electric) runing and the ignition on. IF there is no voltage generated (bad brushes or?) then the symptom you describe will occur. The motor runs fine, but it isn't generating electricity.

SOURCE: Generac Generator won't stay running

I had this same issue with my NP 50G. I replaced the oil pressure & over heat sensor and fuel filter but the problem still existed.

After that I took the fuel bowel off the carb which had some dirt in it. Sprayed it with carb cleaner and that solved the issue. Hope this helps......

Onan 5500 marqui gen set stumbles on demand


Steve,

The microwave alone shouldn't cause a problem for the generator as even the most powerful models run about 1200 watts or about 10 amps. An air conditioner on the other hand, can draw considerably more power to run depending on BTU size; 15 amps and up is not uncommon (and even twice as much as that though only briefly when starting).

If these were the only things connected and on, the generator should be able to handle them - again depending on the BTU size of the AC unit. Generators state their capacity in Watts, but must of the devices we connect are in Amps. Calculating Watts in an AC circuit is complicated, but pretty close to the much easier Watts in a DC circuit for most residential settings. Here's how it's done:

Watts = volts x amps. Pretty simple stuff. Your generator is rated at 5500 watts. The microwave is say, 120 volts / 10 amps - which equals 1200 watts. The generator has 4300 capacity available now. Suppose your air conditioner is rated at 120 volts / 15 amps - which equals 1800 watts. 4300watts - 1800watts = 2400watts capacity is left. But, the starting current for the AC is as much as 25 amps for a few seconds (and once started drops back to 15 amps) - which means there's only 1200 watts capacity left. Add up the rest of the appliances you're running at the same time (TV set, Cable / Satellite box, stereo, toaster, lights, computer, etc.- you get the idea), and you can see how you might have exceeded the 5500 watts capacity of the generator for a few seconds. It's at these times that your hear / see the generator speed falter and sputter, lights dim, etc.. If this is happening a lot, you may need a larger or additional generator.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Sounds like the float is out of adjustment, it's not keeping the bowl filled.If the float is not at correct height or the bowl was not placed back in the correct position it could show these symptoms , some bowls have a small indent on them and that recess should clear the float for proper movement of float. Or check to make sure that you have no water in fuel tank. Good Luck...
