SOURCE: generator shutting down after 1.5 of run time

I had the same problem with a simular generator. I took it to a repair shop who told me it was the "low oil sensor". They fixed it and it lasted another 1.5 hours. I told my-self I would monitor the oil and cut the "low oil sensor" electronic line. It has laster 12 years as a backup generator running at least 200 hours per year. I still have it but have switched to a larger generator. If you, or whoever uses it, can watch the oil level, then cut this line, it will be fine. This sensor is for those who are not able to measure oil level !!!

SOURCE: Generator won't start

Some of the generator has a control or tripping device like over speed, over voltage, overload or overcurrent or other trip device, try to find & reset it.

SOURCE: McCulloch fg6000mk: generator motor runs, no power.

You need to trace out the power wires the come out of the genset. They will end up on a breaker. With a volt meter measure both sides of the breaker. If one side has voltage and the other side doesn't, then your breaker is opened. Press the breaker in closed to see if it actually closes. If it don't then you will need a breaker. However, if no voltage is being produced, it is possible that the voltage regulator let go.

SOURCE: onan 4000 start good runs only ten minutsand shuts down,starts up

First locate the oil pressure switch and see if you can bypass it,then see if it runs. If not check the fuel filter and fuel pump,make sure solonoid for fuel pump is kicking on.

This is a search and find type of problem. Check all wiring, especially if the generator has a low oil cut off switch. Check the wiring to that. Also, check carburetor linkage and for any springs that may have come off. Check the linkage to the governor on the engine to make sure the linkage is not binding.

change the oil to the correct specification first. As the engine runs the heat changes the viscosity and overheats or trips the oil alert switch. If its over 10 years old change the oil alet magnetic switch

Hi,
If your Lanos runs for a short time and no spark have been generated when these problem occurs, the problem would be in the ECU, which you have to bring that to the dealer for a thorough scanning( one of the sensors is malfunctioning ), and the other one is the ignition coil that is overheating.
Hope that helps you out!

Just changed oil on the 4200 watt Craftsman generator, motor starts and runs 2-3 minutes then automatically shuts off for no reason. Any ideas on how I can solve this problem?


make sure you put the correct type of oil in the crankcase for this machine

if you use the wrong type of oil ,oil level sensor float wont work and causes a shut down to protect the generator engine from damage

try draining oil and refilling with 20w/50 oil

Either the coil/HEI module is bad or your on/off switch(kill switch) is bad. Check those first.
