Power stroke 414cc HOV


One of the most common problems with power generators is:
Not having been run often enough.
When that happens ( I have 2), the gasoline will evaporate or thicken and turn gummy, and will clog the carburetor.
Then, the carburetor must be rebuilt, (often it has to be taken off the machine) before it will run properly again.
To prevent this, you must start and run the generator once every two or three months for about 10 minutes.
God bless your efforts.

Sputters dies after 5 minutes


If it runs at all, then it is not the spark, so it must be fuel. Flush the tank and put in new clean fuel. If it still does not run right, then you probably need to rebuild the carbureator.

My gen starts and runs for 1 min or so then dies restarts then dies again and again. if i start it under load ( turn on air con) it will run for 10 min then die allen


Is there a fault?? All UL listed generators including Kohler are required to lockout on a fault on shut down. This really sounds like a problem with your 2-wire auto start connection between your automatic transfer switch and genset. RDT model automatic transfer switch it is the 2 middle wires on the green connector and terminals 3&4 in the generator. close to run and open to shut down. Any open at any time will cause the unit to shut down. The 12 will shut down instantly upon an open because your 5 minute cool down is built into the transfer switch.

Starts easily, run for 5 to 20 minutes and then


If the fuel filter (strainer) is OK, carb gives enough fuel for the load you apply, air filter is dry and clean, your problem may be the low oil level protection.
Check if generator is at level position.
After the oil is distributed in all the engine its level may go less than the measuring sensor level. Try to put some more (not much) oil. 
If this will not help your measuring sensor may be bad and switch off when the oil gets hot.

try to clean out the carb first with auto parts carb cleaner, then you may need to buy a totally new carb for the unit, as this company will NOT sell parts for these carbs due to the carb setting is sealed & has to stay at a set level for voltage output and setting

COLEMAN powermate 5000 generator w/a Subaru engine


Check the vent in the fuel cap to make sure its free to breath. It could be creating a vaccume in there and starveing for fuel. Maybe run it with the gas cap off and see if the problem gos away.

Ford has a technical service bulletin out that may fit your concern.
ISSUE:
The charging system indicator may illuminate or vehicle may not start. This may be caused by a discharged battery due to a poor electrical connection at the generator terminal.

I believe the problem may be with the propane. Have him call his propane provider and get them involved. good luck
