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.

2010 sportsman 500 ho what causes oil in my air filter

For many models, there is a tube from the engine block that ports fumes back into the air box similar to positive crankcase ventilation. The idea is these fumes get sucked back into the air stream to get burned on the return loop. If your oil level is too high or you are riding really tough, some oil can be burped into the air box. Check your oil level, replace or just clean your prefilter/filter. We use fuel in the field to clean the excess oil it when this happens and just give it time to dry....If the bike shut down as a consequence, you may need to clean the spark plug and/or use a carb/fuel injector spray to remove in line gunk.

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.

My dewalt air compressor with honda gx160 5.5 engine starts runs for 2 secs then dies. then wont start for several pulls. after a minute it will start but then dies again. Ive changed plug, gas cleaned...

Control your OIL level in the honda engine ? take of (beware) for only a short moment your oil alert sensor control to know if the level is correct to reset the sensor and if the engine is running for a short time good connect it again on the working engine to reset. if the level was not correct. Control the fuel hose tank filter , change sparkplug control spark on color and a measure on the switch off connector for some dirth or connection lines or other problems that will connect to massa.

Fuel leaking from air box after shutting down

Thats the float valve seals not shutting off, did you clean them & set the float heights?
The overflows from the carb bottoms must also be blocked for the fuel to fill up the carbs which then leaks into the air filter
Check also that the fuel tap turns off when bike is not running
