SOURCE: kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec

Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.

SOURCE: MY KEROSENE HEATER STARTS, RUNS MAYBE 5 MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF

Same problem I had and it was the CAD/flmae sensor. you can get one that will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks or from reddypats.com for 18. the wires are a different color but all you do is clip them and splice them to your old wire harness. It does''nt matter how you hook them as there is no hot and ground just a complete circuit.

SOURCE: pump is running ever 5 minutes. The heat in the

Sounds as if the 'mode' for the tub is set to sense the temperature of the water. see if there is a setting on the control box to a 'timed' setting for filtering and heating instead of controlled by the temperature setting. the problem is the the control box is away from the water and when it calls for heat it is because the water is cooler there than in the hot tub. so when it calls for heat and the water starts to circulate it gets the hot water from the body of the hot tub and then shut down because it senses the 'hot water'. make sense?

Have a 2.0kva-fr/26119 onan genorator which runs for 5 minutes and stops can you be of any help


If it stops after 5 minutes whether under load or not, and assuming the air filter, plugs, and fuel filter are new and or clean. The fuel pump is suspect. If it is in a motorhome try conencting it to an external fuel source that is at the same height as the generator. Then higher than the generator. If the problem persisits replace the fuel pump. Or just check fuel pump pressure with a gauge. BE CAREFUL do not use an automotive fuel pump Onan have special low pressure pumps, so use OEM part

I have a C2001-WK that does not auto shut off


A regulator controls the pressure in the air line leaving the compressor and does not affect when the compressor turns on or off.

The pressure switch monitors the pressure in the tank and turns the compressor motor on and off when the switch closes or opens in response to changes in the tank pressure. If the compressor does not shut off, it is possible the pressure switch has been set to a pressure level that is higher than the compressor is capable of attaining, thus it does not shut off.

The compressor is capable of developing 150 psi and is noted as having a "120 psi cut-in pressure". When you say it doesn't shut off, does that mean it will generate 150 psi or more of pressure and fails to shut off or it develops less than 150 psi and does not shut off.

If the compressor does not generate 150 psi, then it is probably somewhat worn out and not capable of developing enough pressure to meet the factory high pressure limit. I would try adjusting the pressure switch upper pressure limit down to 130 psi or less (less if the compressor will not develop 130 psi) and see if this solves your problem If it doesn't,

If the compressor will develop 150 psi or more, then try adjusting the high pressure limit to less than 150 psi. If you can't adjust the high pressure limit then the pressure switch is defective and needs to be replaced.

2000 ford explore, wont start. if I prime it, it starts right up and stays running fine. shut it off and it wont start again.


I'd go through, and first check the fuses that go back to the fuel pump, and make sure it is making contact before you have to go chasing ghosts. If that doesn't work, then you might try checking your fuel pressure: prime it, run the engine for a few minutes, then kill it: watch to see if the pressure drops off pretty quick after the fuel pump is off. I'm betting on a ground at the fuel pump, though: the simple act of the vibrating running engine usually provides a decent connection.

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

Car will start but won't stay running


Is the Check Engine Light on/ If yes, go to AUtozne & get codes read and report them here.

Also, try cleaning the MAF sensor and throttle bdy with spray carb cleaner.

Check for 40 psi of fuel pump pressure. Can you hear pump hum for 5 seconds when key is turned to ON? Listen at tank at rea of car, pump is in the tank.

Generac Generator won't stay running


It sounds like you are not producing any voltage. When you start your generator have a volt meter on the generator breaker to see if there is voltage present when the genset is running. Also, check you oil pressure switch, which is near the oil filter.
