I had the same problem with a simular generator. I took it to a repair shop who told me it was the "low oil sensor". They fixed it and it lasted another 1.5 hours. I told my-self I would monitor the oil and cut the "low oil sensor" electronic line. It has laster 12 years as a backup generator running at least 200 hours per year. I still have it but have switched to a larger generator. If you, or whoever uses it, can watch the oil level, then cut this line, it will be fine. This sensor is for those who are not able to measure oil level !!!

I can give you the "OWNERS MANUAL" for the 5500/8200 Model 16172 Electra generator, but I don't think that is what you're looking for, is it? I purchased the generator at the Navy Exchange and got the 3 year warranty on it. When it suddenly wouldn't start going into it's third year, I contacted the warranty center and they told me where to take the generator for repair. That shop worked on it and finally got it to start, but when they attempted a second start - the starter 'dogs' hung up and were destroyed. The shop attempted to locate parts, technical services, etc., for Electra, but couldn't find anything and the warranty center finally returned my purchase money and the shop sent the generator back to the warranty center. Does the manufacturer still even exist? Don't Know.... Tom.... Pensacola, Fl

it's running lean.....try resetting the choke partially when it begins to surge.....not completely closed, but enough to richen the fuel mixture (that's all a choke does btw..)
if that helps or clears the problem, your carb is outta whack.....cheaper to buy a new carb than keep taking back into the shop.

The spark coil is bad if you have no spark
Small engine repair. Part is expensive.
Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal
No spark, then spark coil is bad.
