Most likely the fuel is flooding. Let it cool out, and then try a restart.

    It cooled for over 8 hours. It won't even spark

    It has gas, oil and a clean filter. Is there anything else I can try. The unit is 1 wk old.

Yamaha 2400IS Generator goes to overload when ie: 240 volt plugged in, or 700 watt angle grinder plugged in.


No idea but somebody else will probably come along with a better idea then mine, seems a lot of these generators have this thing installed on them (Has $25 hard start kit). Not sure what it does or how it works. Strangely enough you said you use it for 240 volt. Looked at the picture and didn't see a 240 volt connection.
If you are using the what look like the 120 volt circuits you can't over load the unit. Maximum current draw will cause it to go into protection mode and shut down the power load. The following is an exert from the owners manual which I got from Yamaha's site. Link at the end of this post.

Hope this helps

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light
1
comes on when an over-
load of a connected electrical device is detected, the
inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage
rises. The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping
power generation in order to protect the generator and
any connected electric devices. The AC pilot light
(green) will go off and the overload indicator light (red)
will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are found,
remove.
4. After checking, restart the engine.

Generator will not stay running


The toggle switch automatically resets all faults when it is turned to the off position. I would turn the toggle switch off, turn off the breaker on the generator and then turn off all the loads in the house except a few lights. Turn the generator breaker back on, then turn the toggle switch back to automatic. If it starts and stays running, you were overloading the generator. Turn on other loads slowly and keep track of what is on so you don't overload it again. If it still does not stay on, you may have a problem with the panel. Let me know what happens.

Low oil sensor


I would let it cool completely and see if it starts again. There are no specific timers that say after detecting a low oil shutdown don't start for X amount of time. It is more than likely a choke setting as it is hot, and you may now have flooded it.

I have a Honda super quiet 6300i generator. It runs fine and then suddenly will stop. It restarts fine and there are no warning lights of any kind lit on the generator. What could be the cause and how...


Check the oil. Many of these units have a safety switch that will shut off the unit if the oil is low. It doesn't take much on some of these. Or, just add a little oil and give it a try, it certainly won't hurt it.
