You may have bad capacitor. You will need to see if it has one and have it checked . Also could be a bad breaker, windings or brushes. If you do know how to check these things you need to call a pro.

I have a homelite 5000 watt portable generator that starts to run for like 5 seconds and then just stops

check sump oil level
check oil level sensor that switches off the engine if the oil is to low
check fuel flow through the tap as they corrode internally and block the flow

7500 titan diesel gen. About 4 hrs. Into run. It will trip to stop an shut down. Not low oil. Then flip it back to run an it will crank back up an run another 4-5 hours. What is doing this.

it could be a flow sensor in the fuel line to stop the engine before air gets sucked in form low fuel or broken lines
I would first go to the tank vent and ensure that it is not blocked , restricting fuel flow to the pump
there is nothing obvious as the engine would not restart so look for the simple things that trip the stop system
if there is any electronic control , it may be a slowly overheating component that needs checking but I would leave that to a last thing to check

Write the differences between alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC).

I will try, but understand, though we can harness electricity for power, there are still mysteries surrounding the existence and interaction of electric charge.
Alternating current is an electric current that reverses direction at regular intervals. All household current is alternating current. That is how it is generated through power lines, our electric grid, from the source like hydroelectric dams through power lines and into our homes.
Direct current is electric current going only one way in a wire or circuit. Automobiles run on direct current. Science says the flow of electrons in direct current only travels one way. Alternators in cars start out producing alternating current, but with an electric device called a diode, the current is changed to direct current. A diode will only let current pass through it in one direction, but stops current flow in a reverse direction. Before the invention or discovery of alternators, cars used a belt driven generator to produce direct current. Alternators proved superior in generating electricity, however, so were adopted by auto makers.
Now purists will add something more: by convention we say that current flows from the positive battery terminal, through the wire circuits, through an electric motor, and then to ground and thus back to the negative terminal of the battery. So from positive to negative, right? Well, electricity is a negative charged electron flow through a wire, so purists say the current flow is actually from the negative battery terminal through the wire circuits and back to the positive battery terminal. It is confusing, so by convention we say (DC) current flow is from positive to ground, or negative.
Well, there you go. Is it crystal clear, or whut??? Lol.

I have a Kohler whole house Generator that starts and works fine but stops after a hour or two. It restarts fine but again stops after an hour. Oil is good, load is not excessive, propane fuel is...

possible sensors to check are
overheat sensor for the coolamt
time run sensor if fitted
oil pressure sensor
loose wiring connections
possible icing of the gas regulator because if excessive gas flow requirement
have a gas fitter check the air mixture settings for the engine

I have a Honda 7000 generator. Engine will not start. Spark plug is clean and getting spark. Carburetor is clean. Float is free, needle is free. The fuel however is NOT getting from carburetor to cylinder....

If the generator is an auto stop/start type for standby use, it would seem those solenoids are the reason why fuel isn't getting through. It would be a fairly sensible method of stopping the engine remotely.

An auto start/stop generator would need a battery for starting purposes, a battery that would presumably also provide current to energise those solenoids and allow fuel to flow.

I suggest you refer to the instruction manual in the first instance...

Onan generator dies after 2-3 hours of running , wiil not restart rigt away wait 10 minutes starts no problem then runs for 15 minutes shuts down and keeps reapeating on 15 off 10

This sounds like overheating. These small generators don't have overheating protection, but if a low oil pressure or low oil level is present it may be the reason for stopping.

Check the oil level in the starting conditions and again when it stops. It may become under the "stop" level and after some time the precipitated oil has reached the "start" level. The same may be with oil viscosity and oil pressure.

Try to add some oil or change the oil with bigger viscosity.

5500 generator stopped producing eletric after

First check with the dealer and see if it is still under warranty. If it is not, make sure nothing is blocking the air flow around where the control modules are located. This could cause the voltage regulator and other electronic parts to overheat. Next check the brushes and make sure they are free of any dust or build up preventing them from making contact.

If everything is OK the next thing I would do is change the voltage regulator.
