Is this an RV generator?

If you have to really choke an LP engine but it runs more or less normally once started you need to troubleshoot the demand regulator and the fuel supply lines (look for air leaks). I'd also check the fuel inlet pressure before the demand regulator.

Check the oil. Many of these units have a safety switch that will shut off the unit if the oil is low. It doesn't take much on some of these. Or, just add a little oil and give it a try, it certainly won't hurt it.

SOURCE: i have an old makita g2700 generator with a robin ey25 engine.i need to change the oil.what grade of oil is recommended please

Hi Tim,
That engine's original production started out in 1987 by Teledyne and then taken over by Robin Subaru. Replacing your oil depends upon your climate, here's a list Below 14 degrees F 10w30 14-68 degrees F SAE #20 68-104 degrees F SAE #30A complete fill requires 28.7 OZ of oil according to the service manual.If the engine is burning a lot of, oil I would suggest that you jump up a rating on the oil. For example if you are in Florida and it's 95 degrees outside I would useSAE #40. If the engine is still within its tolerance and not consuming oil I would stick with the factory recommendations. On a further note,This is a fairly old generator and was designed to run on straight gas, NO ETHANOL!!!! Today's gas has at least 10% and it will wreak havoc on your fuel system. Ethanol will absorb water from the moisture in the air, It bonds with the water and sinks to the bottom of the tank. Gas with ethanol has a shelf life of about 30 days. Ethanol will also act as a solvent on the fuel line, creating a gum on the inside of the line and make the line very brittle. The gum will eventually migrate into the carburetor and foul it. I would strongly suggest that you replace the fuel line with Tygon or any other ethanol safe material, I would also swap out the fuel filter or add an inline one. Do not store the generator full of fuel, store it empty. Check out the website pure-gas.org to see if ethanol free gas is available in your area. It will last much longer especially with a little bit of Stabil in it. Good Luck,Michael Burke

Guardian propane generator hard starting. At 20 F backfires and won`t start. Goes to overcrank.


It needs a cold weather option, one that heats the oil and also the carb so the LP gas does not freeze the carb. A common problem

Low oil sensor


I would let it cool completely and see if it starts again. There are no specific timers that say after detecting a low oil shutdown don't start for X amount of time. It is more than likely a choke setting as it is hot, and you may now have flooded it.

Briggs and Stratton propane gernerator will not run.


The engine is starved for fuel. Check fuel flow. Possibly a dirty fuel filter someplace in the line or the regulator has low flow.

You can verify this by putting an UNLIGHTED Bernz propane torch into the intake. If that improves it, then low fuel flow is the culprit.

Fuel filters for propane are very fine and can plug up easily. I am not sure where yours are, however I would check at the inout of the regulator for one there for sure.
