The generator shuts off after 30 minutes with an oil level alert but oil level if full

Your oil level sensor is bad. It needs to be replaced. If you unplug the wire leads to the sensor you may get the generator to run, but you'll have no low oil level/pressure protection. The oil level sensor is on the engine crankcase usually near the oil level dipstick. You'll likely see a small sensor with a couple of wires attached to it. To replace it, you'll need to drain your engine crankcase before removing the sensor.

Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!

You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

Unit just shuts off after about 15 minutes of operation

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This may very well be as simple as having to make sure the generator is sitting level and the OIL level is fully serviced. The generator has a low oil level sensor. The Subaru / Fuji Heavy Industires EH and EY series engines seem to be very sensitive to oil level. I can tell you from owning one myself and from my 40 years of experience. I replaced my oil level sensor and in a few weeks was experiencing the same problem all over again. I finally disconnected one of the wires from the low oil level sensor and resigned myself to checking the oil and servicing the oil to full each time I added fuel. (It works for me)
There are other things that can cause this symptom. Without your exact model number I can not look it up and make other recomendations at this time. If you still have the problem first try disconnecting ONE wire from the low oil level sensor after making sure the unit is fully serviced with oil. Then see how long it is before it shuts off. (If at all!) Once you disconnect the low oil level sensor you MUST check and service the oil if necessary each time you add fuel.
Should the problem persist respond here with a COMPLETE model number and I will help you.

After unboxing and setup genpower 305 will not start

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The generator has a low oil level sensor. Make sure the oil level is FULL all the way to the point oil comes out of the oil fill port when you add oil. If after your sure it is full of oil it still does not start then disconnect ONE wire from the oil level sensor and check for spark.

There is a model number on a data plate that begins with "PM" like this:

This model came as a manual and an electric start so the model number is important. The engine on this model is a Subaru engine and my experience with Subaru engines it that the low oil level sensors are extremely sensitive to even the slightest drop in oil level. (Good engines though!)

There should be a fuel selector that you need to turn ON and a Choke lever that you PULL and then push in upon start.

This should be and EH34 or EY34 engine.

Powermate 5000er 10 hp won't start no fire to the plug

Make sure that the generator is full of oil. It has a low oil level sensor that will ground the spark if the oil is low. If you have filled it to FULL with oil and still have the problem disconnect the low oil level sensor (one wire) and check for spark again. IF you now have spark the oil level sensor has either failed or is dirty. (yes you can clean them with carb cleaner.)

If after doing the above you still have no spark... I need 2 things.
1. the actual model number off of the generator Will start with PM or PMO
2. the engine model number / type / series number off of the engine

Low current. Will hardly drive a sander or lights. Voltage guages says 120V. Unit is 3 years old but has maybe 10 hours of use max

I found this at
AVR Voltage Adjustment

This bulletin covers the following Champion Power Equipment models:

C46535 C41150 C41365

C46540 C41155 C75520E

C49055 C41255 C71350E

Note: Read instructions completely before performing service.

1. On the end of the generator locate the round yellow cover held on by two 7mm bolts.

Remove the two bolts and the yellow cover will come right off.

2. At approximately 7 o'clock you'll see a kidney shaped electrical component called the AVR,

which is held on by two 7mm bolts. Remove the two bolts but do not disconnect the wiring

and turn the AVR over so you can see the backside. You should see a round part coming off

the AVR, this is the capacitor. You should also see a small rectangular box with a jewelers

screw, this is your voltage adjustment screw.

3. With a flat head screw driver turn the jewelers screw counter clockwise and this will lower

the voltage. As the screw is turned back watch the volt meter to see adjustment, the

generator must be running to do this.

4. Adjust the screw until the meter reads 250 volts. On model C46540 when the toggle switch

is turned to the 120 side the volt meter should read around 130 volts. Optimum voltage is

121.8 volts.

5. If voltage does not decrease or does not hold a steady output please contact Champion at

877-338-0999 for a new AVR.
