Check the Oil. If it is low, the Low Oil cutout will shut the engine off after a few seconds. If the oil is full, try disconnecting the oil sensor. If this makes it run, you will need to diagnose and repair the cutout system.

Proforce powermate 2300 wont run for more than 1 minute, starts in a few pulls....runs than shuts off. Is there a reset switch for the low oil shut off? Only thing i can think of.


It might be a clogged fuel filter or dirt in the float needle. Fuel will fill the carb slowly, allowing you to start it, but it cannot flow fast enough to keep up with the demands of the engine and it runs out of fuel. It sits long enough to refill the carb, you can get it started again, and the process repeats.

The generator has a low oil level sensor. Fill the oil all the way to the FULL mark and try it again.

My powermate 5000 with subaru engine will run anywhere from 30-60 minutes and shut down. One light pull to the pull start and it runs great for another 30-60 minutes. Never a problem to start it back up...


There is debri or dirt in gas tank and eventually it gets sucked up and clogs the screen filter on the end of gas line. Drain gas tank and flush out a few times. let dry and put new gas in it. check your gas can, if it is metal, it may have rust in the bottom of it and it goes in the gas tank and clogs screen, make sure you have a clean gas can that you use to fill the generator.

Car will on stay running for a few seconds before shutting off


It could be that your fuel filter could be clogged. You can check this by doing a fuel pressure test. After it dies, all the sediment drops off the filter so when you start it back up it does run for a small amount of time but then gets clogged up again after you start it again because it picks up the sediment again. You might also want to check your ignition control module. But my guess it's something to do withing your fuel system somewhere

Starts to power on,then shuts down


Have you checked the filters? I have a Sanyo PLV-75 and had a similar problem.  The normal fan would come on when the unit was first started, then after a few seconds the secondary fan came on and then the unit would shut down.  Called tech support and they asked if I had cleaned the filters. I did it, and it worked great.  Check the manual for where the filters are and hit them first before getting a new bulb.  Hope it helps!
