The previous solutions are very important to confirm first. If your pump is in good serviced order then look to a valve adjustment.

It sounds like could be one of the problems listed below or a combination of those things.

1) The exhaust is partially blocked. Check the screen covering exhaust port for carbon and dirt build-up. The high-speed exhaust air must pass freely.

2) Gas is not flowing freely to carburetor > under gas tank, find the rubber hose connected to carburetor. Pull off rubber hose and make sure gas flows freely. You can use this hose to drain gas tank of old gas, and then put in new gas.

3) Carburetor is partially gummed up and engine cuts off when gas flow slows down. Check small engine repair shop or auto parts store for gum out, and don't store engine with gasoline in the tank. Or put additive in gas when storing machine.

4) The choke is letting in too much gas or not enough gas. Try different adjustments. The choke-lever on our power washer got so bad that we could not set throttle at full open or the machine would die. We still use the machine at 2/3 throttle.

5) Dirty air filter that won't let engine breath enough air to keep up with combustion. Take off air filter and see if problem persists.

6) The spark coil is going bad?? Change spark plug to see if problem persists. Is spark plug wire pushed all the way on the spark plug?

Check for sensors on the unit that might be failing. I think many heaters have safety interlock switches on them now.

Position Sensor... Knock it over & it turns off.
Loose wires....
Obviously turn it off when looking inside

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.

Lcd tv shuts down by its self


All you need to do is remove the back cover, then remove the metal cover that covered the power supply. Watch tv w/o cover, it won't shut down again. Try it and post here if it works.
