SOURCE: generator shutting down after 1.5 of run time

I had the same problem with a simular generator. I took it to a repair shop who told me it was the "low oil sensor". They fixed it and it lasted another 1.5 hours. I told my-self I would monitor the oil and cut the "low oil sensor" electronic line. It has laster 12 years as a backup generator running at least 200 hours per year. I still have it but have switched to a larger generator. If you, or whoever uses it, can watch the oil level, then cut this line, it will be fine. This sensor is for those who are not able to measure oil level !!!

one idea is to check the amount of oil you are putting in....remember...you mustn't flip the gen. to fill it....keep it level and keep filling until the oil level is visable and about to drip out...that's the right amount....if you overfill it it will cause the problem you pointed.

SOURCE: Older Coleman 3500 Watt generator, sitting for

there can be many reasons. need more info:
Is it Inverter typr generator?

measure output voltage - anything?
take back cover off generator itself, measure continuity of stator and rotor, and visually inspect windings. You'll find AVR module there too, it may be the reason.

SOURCE: 11 hp 5700 watt generator wont fire

If you could not start in spite of oil and gas change, checked gas supply, spark plug, ignition cables and coils (magnetos) and so on whitout success, then try this:
Your generator has a low oil level protection, which stops the ignition of the motor.
After "a couple of years" sitting without or with old oil, the level switch may have got lazy or stuck down.
If your oil level seems to be good, while measured, find the oil switch and try to shorten or disconnect it.
If you succeed in running the generator change or repair the oil switch.

I hope that this will be helpful, because I don't have your device in front of me, but some people rank such an answer with 2 thumbs, which means useless. Better dont rank.

The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.

Steele 9000 watt generator won't start


Hi Derrick
I assume you can turn over the engine, and the engine has run previously?
Check for spark, -take off the plug lead and connect an old spark plug to the ignition lead open the gap up to about 5/16 inch . Tie the thread of the spark plug to the engine to hold it and earth it with a bit of soft wire. Wind over the engine you should get a nice fat blue spark. If you get a nice spark do you can eliminate ignition issues. This just leaves fuel. You can then focus on this.

How to start a gas generator (should the choke be in or out, to the right or the left before starting


Most Generac generators have a lever for the choke that pulls out. So if the generator is being started for the first use or cold you should choke when starting . Let it run for 30-45 sec. then push it in . Once the engine has been run or warm you dont need to choke every time when starting .
