Generac xl 4000 will not keep running after starting

Generac 4000 XL portable generator will start and run for about 10 to 12 seconds and then shut down. Oil is good, cleaned carb and air filter, cleaned out tank and replaced gas filter. It will start on 2nd or third pull after waiting about 10 seconds. I noticed oil shut down switch light will blink when it is almost shut down completely but not but not at normal idle speed.

What kind of oil do you use


Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Starts up but will not run but for a few seconds


Check the oil. Some engines will shut down if the oil is low. Otherwise you probably have a dirty fuel filter and the carburetor fills up with gas long enough to start but isn't getting enough gas to keep it full.

Generac NP 50G Stops after 2-30min.


check the oil sensor circuit. I know when I take out or short out the sensor ckt on mine, it'll keep on running. low oil isn't good for any motor.
