SOURCE: Generator pulsates when its running 12-KW natural gas

You've described the symptoms of a dirty air cleaner, surging throttle (the pulsating), oil getting sucked up thru the breather into the intake (the why you have to add oil).
When you check/change the air cleaner you should also have a look at the spark plug, the dirty air cleaner forced the engine to burn some oil and that may have left junk on the plug.

To make it easier to read the oil level on a dipstick, try dipping the stick into a little water. When you draw it back out of the water the contrast between the oil covered part of the dipstick and the water covered part will be a little more obvious. Sometimes looking at the backside of the dipstick is better too.

SOURCE: have a 16k propane guardian generator have to manually start and

Is this an RV generator?

If you have to really choke an LP engine but it runs more or less normally once started you need to troubleshoot the demand regulator and the fuel supply lines (look for air leaks). I'd also check the fuel inlet pressure before the demand regulator.

Rate me,

SOURCE: generator 30

fuse are meant to protect the costlier part of the machine thereby damaging itself.  there is probably overloading of your circuit. call the electrician and find the actual power required by your house.  there is a possibility of having a short circuit in your generator. your local electrician can check it.

SOURCE: Attempted to start Generac Guardian 15 kw air

I work on these every day. Its either gonna be the rotor or stater, the voltage regulator, but most likely its a bad stepper motor which is the throttle motor, or control board. Thats all that could be causing that so its one of those. If its the rotor or stater thats bad it causes the generator to RPM up because it thinks its not producing enough power due to that. I had the same problem with the same one we just fixed and it was the slip rings on the end of the rotor so bad rotor.

Briggs and Stratton propane gernerator will not run.


The engine is starved for fuel. Check fuel flow. Possibly a dirty fuel filter someplace in the line or the regulator has low flow.

You can verify this by putting an UNLIGHTED Bernz propane torch into the intake. If that improves it, then low fuel flow is the culprit.

Fuel filters for propane are very fine and can plug up easily. I am not sure where yours are, however I would check at the inout of the regulator for one there for sure.
