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.

I have a Briggs and Stratton 7KW standby generator. I accidentally spilled some oil on it during a hurricane and cleaned it. However, when I try to start it, it will go on for about 15 seconds and then...


sounds more like a fuel problem not oil being spilled on it but check the oil level some have a low oil shut off see if you can keep it running spraying carb cleaner in the air filter that will tell you if it is a fuel problem more so a fuel problem if you left fuel in it for more than 30 days

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.

Starts easily, run for 5 to 20 minutes and then


If the fuel filter (strainer) is OK, carb gives enough fuel for the load you apply, air filter is dry and clean, your problem may be the low oil level protection.
Check if generator is at level position.
After the oil is distributed in all the engine its level may go less than the measuring sensor level. Try to put some more (not much) oil. 
If this will not help your measuring sensor may be bad and switch off when the oil gets hot.

My car has a oil leak and i added a quart the other day and now the oil light is flashing and remaining lite sometimes. i checked the oil and there is actually a liitle over full in it.


Over-full can be just as bad as under-full. The crank will make contact with the oil and cause a froth of oil and air. Air is a very poor lubricant and will cause serious engine damage. Park the vehicle on a perfectly level surface and shut the engine off. Wait at least 30 minutes and then check the oil level. If it is over-full drain out enough to get it down to the full mark. Never ever over-fill an engine. Your car holds 4.5 quarts with filter change.
