I don't think the over crank is a problem.
Why is it shutting off?
Find the owners manual to find out if there is some fault that will shut it down or it may be an engine problem like the choke not releasing after starting.
To find a manual online you will need the make and model number of your generator.

It could be either your start capacitor or the contactor-relay. Or you could try cleaning the contacts of the relay with an emery board to see if there is a change.
