Hi Spraker,

This sounds like a fuel filter with just enough dirt in it to allow some gas to seep through, but when the engine is started it will not provide enough to keep it running. Locate and close the spring tabs on either end of the filter. You will need to push something (a small bolt perhaps) in the ends of the fuel lines to prevent gas from coming out on both ends. Elevate them as well.

When you put the new filter own, you will have to use the choke more than usual to pump gas into the filter and up to the carb. If this isn't it, it is likely the fuel pump. Please write us back and let us know!

Miller Legend welder. Onan engine starts and runs a few minutes then dies. Why won't it restart for 5 minutes?


Some engines have a low oil cutoff switch. If the oil level drops to a certain point it kills the engine. Your oil level may be close enough that after starting and running for a little bit the level drops enough to kill the motor. After sitting for awhile the level rises enough to allow the engine to run again check the level and add oil if necessary.
Hope this helps.

I have a maytag dryer that sometimes when I hit the start button will start and run for only a few minutes and stop and wont start again for a while and does a humming noise when it does star why?


Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload (Getting hot) it may be caused by the motor itself, or could be overloaded by bearings or fan etc
