Serenity,

First I think you should start by looking at the ignition system.
To find the fault please follow these steps:

  1. Removed the spark plug from the engine and re-attach to the Ignition HT Lead. Hold the end of the spark plug tip to a metal section of the engine, and turn over the engine (you might need a friend to help if your generator does not have electric start). If all is working correctly, you should see a strong spark, and the engine should run smoothly.
  2. If you do not get a spark, you next need to check oil level is at correctly level (to the very top as if about to flow out) and repeat step 1.
  3. If you still have no spark or it stops running within a few minutes of starting, disconnect the oil sensor wire (you will find it on the front coming from your engine just to the top left of the oil filler cap) and try step 1 again.
  4. Still not getting a spark? Then you need to replace your ignition coil. You can order one from us from our website on this page: http://www.generatorguru.com/sp-gg350/?sort=featured
If you are getting a spark, but still having trouble starting the Generator, there is most likely a fuel problem too. We can assist you with the next set of fault-finding tests if you need some help. Let us know how it goes. :)

    My Oman generator overheats and shuts down if I plug my battery charger in and have my air conditioning on and or coffee maker


    to start with with an air conditioner running (2000 +watts ) plus a coffee machine (1500 watts ) you are looking at 3500 + watts of power used from the generator
    the genset has to be of a minimum of 4500 watts to run full time with out over heating
    never mind what the rating says on the side, that rating is surge rated and the duty cycle is around 500 watts less than that figure
    So if your gen set is 3500 watts the power is at surge power and that will overheat the genset
    Of course you haven't mentioned the rating of the set , but overloading is the main reason for over heating

    Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!


    You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

    How do I connect 2 1850 watt coleman generators together to have at least 3500 watts to run my camping trailer?


    It wont work. Electricity does not work like that. you can't double the power just by doubling the watts or amps. there is a lot and lots of other things involved.
    I would rewire you camper so that half is run be one generator and the other half by the other generator... SO lights and fridge on one and plugs and heater on the other maybe...

    You should have automatic or manual choke control. Try to find it and open it during start. After that you can close it if stable work is achieved.
