I just guessing here but it could mean that the oil pressure is too low.
I'd check the oil level first, then look for the oil pressure switch and temporarily disconnect it.

Check for loose or rusty battery cables. Unscrew the rear cover and locate the red battery wire. Disconnect it and, using a multi meter, check its resistance: it should have a very low value. Do the same with the other wire.
Start the generator and remove battery wires. If the voltage between them is zero then a fuse is blown.
Next open the front panel (where the display is), there you will find two blue wires with covered fuses, check and replace those fuses if found faulty.
If the problem is still there then it could be the charge regulator. Open the back cover by removing the six nuts. Near the edge you will find a component with silver cover resembling plates. There are three wires leading from it. Check resistance between these wires (one by one) and its body: it should be infinite, if not then replace it. remove the charge regulator and take it to a generator spare shop. The person there will further inspect it and will tell you if you need to replace it or repair it.
Hope this solves your problem.
Thank you for using fixya!

this is telling you that the power frequency is above or below the safe limit and so shuts down.
do not run a load but
press the function button and hold then switch on but dont start keep holding until ph2 or similar is displayed then start read the frequency and adjust the engine speed until it reads correct then try will full load and adjust accordingly 1 or 2 hz either way will be ok

It sounds like your unit may not be charging the battery properly.
Try charging the battery and see if it responds properly. If it does, then check the charging circuit. This OFTEN involves a rectifier module which is usually about 1 inch square with four leads. OFTEN there is a fuse, sometimes within the generator housing (stupid place) which protects the low voltage winding.
Here is a hint: Most of these engines have a compression release on the top that one can press then crank up to speed and release. This takes much less effort on the battery. Some have a panel held by bolts. I put hinges on mine for easy access.
REMEMBER the battery is being drained WHILE the unit is running to hold the fuel solenoid open... so if charging isn't working the battery will die.
Test: You should see about 13.75 to 14 volts across the battery when properly being charged while running.
