I just guessing here but it could mean that the oil pressure is too low.
I'd check the oil level first, then look for the oil pressure switch and temporarily disconnect it.

Check for loose or rusty battery cables. Unscrew the rear cover and locate the red battery wire. Disconnect it and, using a multi meter, check its resistance: it should have a very low value. Do the same with the other wire.
Start the generator and remove battery wires. If the voltage between them is zero then a fuse is blown.
Next open the front panel (where the display is), there you will find two blue wires with covered fuses, check and replace those fuses if found faulty.
If the problem is still there then it could be the charge regulator. Open the back cover by removing the six nuts. Near the edge you will find a component with silver cover resembling plates. There are three wires leading from it. Check resistance between these wires (one by one) and its body: it should be infinite, if not then replace it. remove the charge regulator and take it to a generator spare shop. The person there will further inspect it and will tell you if you need to replace it or repair it.
Hope this solves your problem.
Thank you for using fixya!

Your generator is running a bit too fast, and the frequency is greater than 60Hz. Most generators are setup for 62-63Hz no load. You can adjust this at the governor for the engine.
Another possibility is that the alternator is providing electric with a large amount of harmonic distortion, which some appliances don't tolerate well (dirty power). Try adding a noise filter between the generator and espresso maker and see if that helps. The espresso maker may also expect to be grounded, which the generator is not able to provide (unless you are driving a ground rod). The noise filter may also require a ground as well.
