If the unit has a low oil shut down make sure the oil if filled to the proper full level.
If you have the proper level then you can locate the low oil shut down wire and remove the wire to test and see if the unit will run.

If the unit runs with the wire off then you either have low oil or a bad oil sending unit.

Runs for about 45 mins then shuts off


Hi there:
make sure to read the full post before to procceed, ok?

When it stops I supposse you try to start it again. What happens??. 1.-Runs again or you have to wait until it cool's off ??
If it starts but stops in the next minute you may have a clogged gas filter.

2.-If it has no gas filter, then you migth be having armature problems, to check just unplug the spark plug and use another one making sure the metal part is in good contact wit the metal part, be really careful the engine is going to be really hot, so use gloves and ask someone to pull the cord as if it were to run and look for spark, If no spark check the oil level to be correct, if so, then let it cool and try for spark if there's spark then the problem is your armature.

3.- Prior to do ANYTHING make sure there's enough gasoline in the tank. You won't believe me but happens quite often.

What brand of engine & horsepower is it?Also about how long was it stored or last time it was run? The reason I ask is if it was stored with gas in it & a fuel stabilizer wasn't added to it,your primary jet is plugged in the carburetor(reason it will only run while choked).

I have a proforce 2500 watt generator and it cuts out is this caused by low oil? if I change oil how much does it get?


Low oil doesn't usually make engines cut out. Clean the air filter, change the plug and wire. If this doesn't help then I think you're looking at a carb. problem. Probably just clogged jets & ports. It's very common on small engine carbs. It shouldn't take more than 2 quarts of oil. Probably not even one.

Coleman Powermate 10 HP Generator shuts down after a few minutes.


I have an HM100 on a 5500 watt gen with the same problem. This motor calls for a J17 spark plug, but I found using a J19 (hotter) plug solved the problem. I think the J17 doesn't get hot enough for a complete combustion burn so it act like fuel starvation thus resulting in the black sooty and wet plug.

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr


Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.
