There isn't really a guage to look at . What one does is to take out the plastic plug on the side of the engine and with the engine cold and level make sure that the oil level comes up to the lowest thread where the plug screws in.

You really should have a manual, so if it's missing look here for which ever "PM" number is printed on the tag on the end of your generator.

Regards,
Carl

Depends on the temperature where yuo will operate it, but a good multi-viscosity oil like 10W-30 should work. 5W-30 for cold climates.

Do check the oil after it has tried to start. Low oil cutoff would certainly cause the problem. Look for the "lost" fuel shutoff valve... there usually is one.

As silly as this is going to sound, make sure the oil level is right. I have a Powermate 6250 that did the same thing to me. Turned out the oil was just a little too low and the sensor was killing the power. When you try to start it, the red light will be flashing in the on/off switch, that's the low oil indicator. Hope this helps.
