If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?

The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Winco PSS8000 Standby Generator won't start

This question is too vague to give you a good answer. But since it's coming up very high on Google searches, and I recently solved the same problem on the same generator, I thought I'd add a few notes here for others.

In my case, the engine would take a lot of cranking before it would start, and eventually refused to start altogether. If your engine won't even crank, ignore the rest of this, you have a different problem (starter, battery, cables, or solenoid).

I'm also going to assume that you've checked easy stuff like the fuel supply, spark plug wires attached, etc. The PSS8000 runs on propane or natural gas. If it's cranking for a while and not starting, you should smell gas (not gasoline, gas like the gas grill before you light it). If not, then you have a fuel problem.

In my case, all the usual stuff was fine but still no start. The problem was: low compression caused by negative valve clearance. Apparently gaseous fuels wear valves and seats faster than gasoline -- as a result the valve clearance (which is supposed to be a small positive amount) is reduced so the valves are basically held open a tiny bit all the time. This causes several nasty problems, but in my case the main one was low compression. As a result of that, the engine had a hard time starting.

So in addition to all of the usual stuff (plugs, spark, fuel, etc.) check your valve clearance -- you're supposed to do it every season anyway. On my engine the correct clearance is 0.004-0.006" for both intake and exhaust.

Onan 5500 marque gold turns over but, won't start. fault code is 32 but, batteries ok, air cleaner ok, fuel pumping, oil changed, won't start

Code 32 is a low cranking speed sense. You didn't mention a Spec # which would help. You say batteries are ok, but the generator is not getting enough cranking amps or voltage to maintain the control properly. Check, battery voltage, wiring, any in line isolation solenoids, check generator solenoid, also make sure there is no mechanical binding on the generator, a good way to do that is remove the spark plugs DISCONNECT THE BATTERY to prevent starting, underneath where the air intake is under the alternator is a plastic plug, remove that and you can put a socket I believe 3/4" up onto the alternator shaft and rotate the engine, if it tuns freely there is no binding, if you feel it is hard to move, check the drive train, belts, pulleys underneath (A lot of work, best to take to a dealer if it is mechanically bound)

My brand new UST 1200W generator engine start OK (single pull) when choke on but won't stay up when choke is off. I changed oil after the first 4 hrs of use. Has this to do with the gasline I used?

It is possible that it may be having trouble if you have some bad gas but I would be more inclined to check the float to make sure it is not hanging up and allowing to much gas to get to engine. I would adjust idle and fuel mix screw all the way shut and then start opening them up about 1/4 turn at a time and try to start and run between adjustments.Only try to start it once or twice in between adjustments to avoid flooding. If you can get it to run good then turn screws one more time or until engine starts missing a little then slowly close until it runs smoothly.Hope this helps you. Thank you.

19e412-0134-01 won't start. gas leaks out air

The float is stuck on the carb flooding the engine and leaking gas out of air filter. Remove the float bowl after the gas is turned of or drained. Thoroughly clean carb And bowl with carb cleaner. Reove the float {very carefully} if it is copper, shake it. If you here fuel in it then it is no good. If not then clean everything and reassemble. If it needs to be replaced, most small engine repair shops will have your parts.
