Most likely a dirty fuel system. Rebuild the carbureator and put in fresh fuel, preferably non-ethanol fuel. That should work.

My onan 4.0 generator will not idle and is back fireing while trying to run it will run fine for ten min then starts trying to die and starts back fireing when I try to keep it running


check for a faulty sump oil switch . check for faulty coil ( magneto on the flywheel) as the time it runs suggests that it is breaking down internally.

RUNS AND QUITS


You could try replacing the ignition coil. If it's failed, then it may run ok for a few seconds, but as it heats up it fails. Trying to start again immediately will be too soon for the coil to have cooled down. Leave it a few minutes to cool down and it will run again, but only for a few seconds again.
Hope that helps

How do i disconnect the low oil sensor


Some oil sensors will stop the generator from running if unplugged, IE they close the circuit on oil pressure, some close the circuit on oil pressure. I wouldn't recommend but with it running just take the single wire off the sensor, if it stops immediately then it requires the signal grounded to run. Some ground on low oil.

Although A bit inconvienent this does seem to be the norm for some Kohler units. Actually a small price to pay rather than having a technician come out to replace the ATS control board. There are time delays that could be set longer to keep the unit running longer and may prevent this from happenng
