What number spark plug for a Centurion 5000 generator
There is usually a number printed on the side of the actual spark plug. This is the model number code for that spark plug manufacturer. The simplest method is to take the actual plug to a Good auto-parts store and they will be able to match it to different manufacturers and still be the correct type.

Are you sure it ran out of fuel... check for spark.
Remove air filter assembly and spray a short burst (
If it fires and runs for a few seconds and dies then it's a fuel delivery issue. If no fire, then either no spark, no fuel, or its flooded.

The receptacle should look like the attached photo. Use a DMM to measure voltage.
Amana model lga60aw Dryer tripping circuit breaker
Is the dryer gas or electric? Does it plug into a 110Volt outlet or a 220Volt outlet? Does it trip the circuit breaker immediately or will it run for a while and then trip the breaker? If it is tripping immediately then there is a short inside the unit. If it takes a while to trip the breaker it can be that the outlet you are using is not a dedicated line and has other circuits connected to it. If that's the case you are overloading the breaker and causing it to shut down. If it is a dedicated line that you are plugged into then something inside the unit is heating up when its in use and overloading the circuit breaker. Then the unit needs service.
Generator Cummins/onan 2800 k starts & runs for about 5 - 10 mins then sputters & dies.
Check battery voltage is correct while generator is running. Voltage at the battery should be over 14VDC while genset or coach motor is running.
You might try running the coach motor and see if the symptoms change.
If battery voltage checks ok then it may be water in fuel. But water in fuel doesn't relate to the no electric output so could be there's more than one problem.
I don't know how difficult it will be to get a fuel sample to check for water. Possibly rig a temporary fuel line at the generator electric fuel pump and jump battery power to the pump to collect a pint to a quart of fuel. Transfer fuel sample to a glass container and let set for a few minutes. Look for water/fuel separation line (fuel floats).
If water present in the sample you'll need address replacing the fuel and draining the carburetor fuel bowl.
