Question about Generac Electrical Supplies
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.

Try disconnecting the wire going to the low oil switch. if it runs then you need a new switch.
