Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 7 kW Auto Standby Generator
Checked oil pressure switch, oil quality and level, air filter, switch part number 31 had connector off(do not know what switch is called) which was no help. Looked over fuel valve assy which looks OK. Unit has been used for 2 years hooked up to 500 lb propane tank. Never a problem,
It shuts down because it's not making power. You are probably getting a failure to start error code. If it doesn't make power it doesn
t know its running. Rotor has lost residual magnetism to start the voltage regulator. Replace the voltage regulator. The new one is designed to overcome this.

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.

Testimonial: "Problem solved. The engine was starved for fuel. The regulator diaphragm had pulled away allowing air in."
That's interesting that you bypassed the fuel pump after noticing that the carburetor was below the tank, not needing a fuel pump to start the engine.
Maybe they put a fuel pump in to ensure that the float bowl valve is not the only thing preventing gas from overflowing into the carburetor when stored for a long period of time.
I would put the pump in if that's the way they originally designed the fuel supply for the engine, just to be safe.
Good luck on this repair.

Check the adjustment to the needle and seat. If the gap is too wide it will stall when set to an idle. If the adjustment is on the money clean the jets out since your inti it. There are 4 holes in the brass jet. If anyone gets clogged up it will affect the idle a well
