Question about Generac GP5500

Open Question

I recently purchased a generac 5500E generator. Starts and runs ok for about 10 minutes then the carborator starts oscillating like it is running out of fuel then it shuts down. Will not restart immediately. Fuel full. Engine oil full. Moderate electrical load.

SOURCE: Small 7kw Generac has always sounded rough over

If the generator is out of warranty, you can try spraying a short shot of ether into the intake of the generator as it is running rough. If the engine smoothes out for a few seconds, and returns back to original state, then it is likely running lean. Check the gas regulator (this is LP or natural gas I am assuming since it is standby), the vent may be clogged on the bottom of it.

Starts runs for a minutes quits but if you keep pushing the start button it keeps running


You say Guardian that is Generac???? Then you indicate Onan 4.0KY. If it is a Onan and it stops after you release the button there are a couple of things. 1 st check the brushes, and polish the rotor slip rings, check the resisitance of the rotor, the electrical harness plugs are tight. The control requires a voltage feedback while cranking to engage the PCB run circuits, if all those check out you have a bad control board.
