You run again the generator but before running, check & mark the oil level. Then stop the generator & wait until the oil settle to the bottom of oil pan. Check the oil level again & if the oil level is higher than the marking before that's means you have an engine gasket leak.You need to replace that gasket.

What size generator do I need to run a 10 hp motor


on the plate attached to the motor you will find several important items
one is the wattage of the motor
this is the maximum wattage that the motor uses when under load
the gen set will need to be at least 30% bigger than that figure
next there will the number of phases that the motor is
it will read as 1 ph or 3ph
If it is 1ph that is a single phase motor and will ru from a single phase gen set
however if it is 3ph you will need a 3ph gen set to run the motor
As most single phase motors are limited to around 5hp I would be very sure that the motor is not 3ph
specialist advice from an accredited electrician or electrical motor shop is recommended before buying a gen set. as if you need 3ph the gen sets become expensive.

How do i do when some genset can't run togheter when we start the plant


im not sure are you asking about Phasing ? on a three phase gen set , yes extreme care needs be taken if you need to start one genset before shutting one off , in this case a Phase/sync meter will need to be used to keep from surging all the loads connected to genset , also all three phases of each genset needs to be "In sync" to be able to use a transfer from one genset to another , in sync refers to peek waveform on each genset, needs to be in perfect time or an "ARC" will occur , that could be detrimental to the connected loads if there sensative to this type

Check engine light is on. Engine sounds like it's knocking. And oil light is coming on. This 2008 Dodge Dakota has only 63,000 miles.


Sometimes that light means overfill oil
Sometimes after changing oil if they put too much that happens
Check the oil level on cold in level place (give it like an hour or so) for the light to reset
If after that the light still on take it to a tech.

Good luck

Perkins 20 kva diesel generator runs and stops in about 2 minutes.alternator failure is displayed on screen.


Ensure any engine control switch is set to the run position, with the load disengaged. Manually set the air shut off valve (if fitted) to the run position (see Fig. 18), Turn the key switch to the start position, which will energize the solenoid allowing the engine to crank over for a few seconds then start.

Check the instrument panel is showing normal running oil pressure, and the ammeter for charge to the engine batteries.
Allow the engine to run for five minutes checking the instruments are reading correctly. Stop the engine and check the oil and coolant levels, replenish if necessary.

make sure gen isnt stopt on protection overtemperature or oil level or coolant level. try to bridge protections one by one to find the course. first make sure all fluids are on level and coolers are clean. fanbelt tension and coolantthermostat can also be wrong.

Diesel generator runs for short time then shuts down. it is a onan 7.5 & runs off of the motor home fuel tank


More than likely a safety control circuit on startup. Either high water temp, low oil pressure, or over rev condition. If not any of the above quite possibly the integratrated generator/engine control circuit board.
