If you are in Europe, you run 240 VAC @ 50 Hz. If you are in the U.S., you run 120 or 240 VAC both @ 60 Hz. Assuming that it's NOT an inverter generator, if your engine is running too fast or too slow, your frequency will be too high or too low which can damage sensitive electronics or electric induction motors. Apparently, you have a well controlled / monitored generator. While it is still running during those 20 seconds, I would check for your local voltage at it's output. If it is well above or below it's rated voltage, it's frequency will be out of range also, again, assuming that it's NOT an inverter generator. If it is an inverter type, you'll have to take it to a service center for adjustment. If not and the voltage is out of range, I would try adjusting the engine speed to bring it back into spec. I am in the U.S. My father in law had a craftsman 3,650 watt generator that didn't have the monitoring that yours does but it did the same thing. It would run for 20 or 30 seconds and quit. The oil was up and all looked well. I disconnected the low oil pressure switch and it ran fine. I replaced the switch the next day. I have a 7,000 watt Troy Bilt that I have wired into my house for emergencies but I bought a small, cheap Champion brand 1,400 watt generator for portable use. I brought it home and fired it up and out of the box it was putting out 133 VAC instead of the standard 120. I turned the idle down until it read 120 VAC and it works fine as long as I don't try to run a window A/C unit or fridge. It doesn't have the guts to start the compressor but it works great for lighting, TV's or small hand tools. Good luck.

SOURCE: kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec

Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.

SOURCE: oven won't heat and shuts down after approx. 20 seconds

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

SOURCE: Problem with a kipor 12 ta generator

Hi,
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.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: The generator starts up runs for about 15 seconds and shuts down.

Check the oil pressure switch

SOURCE: My "KDE19STA3" Kipor generator keeps showing fault "L&H Freq.

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

My diesel kipor 5kva generator wont shut by key ,


Caution
the manufacture is recommending a cool down period of about 3 minutes to prevent overheating of the combustion chamber. the following is from the manufacture on shut down procedure.

3.2.8Check Stopping of Generating Set
(1)Disconnect the load from the generating set.
(2)Turn off the air switch of the generating set.
(3)Set the speed lever at RUN position, run the generating set without load for about 3 minutes. Do not stop the engine suddenly, otherwise the temperature will increase abnormally, the nozzle will blocked and the generating set will be damaged.
Press down the stop lever. Concerning the electric starter, turn the key to OFF. Turn the fuel **** lever to S position.
Pull out the recoil starter handle until you feel resistance (at this position, both intake/exhaust valve are closed.) and leave the handle in this position. This prevents the engine from rust.
If the engine keep on running even after the speed lever is placed at the STOP position, either turn the fuel **** to the CLOSE position or loosen the nut of high pressure fuel pipe on the pump side to stop the engine.
Do not stop the engine with the decompression lever.
Do not stop the generating set with load. Stop it after the load removed.

Why unit keeps shutting down after it starts.


Your question is general without specific details. Any one of many things will cause your generator engine to stop running.

Is this question about a Kipor KDE5000TA? If so, your generator is powered by a diesel engine. There are safety shut downs built into the generator to protect the generator head and engine. Do you have any fault codes showing on your control panel display screen? (Trouble codes P-01 through P-05 will be displayed if there's a detected fault)

If you have no fault codes, then you likely have a fuel problem. Do the obvious:
  1. Visually check the fuel level in your tank. DO NOT rely on your fuel gauge. It may be stuck or otherwise not working.
  2. If you have fuel, check your fuel filter. It may be clogged. If your fuel filter is good, you may have water contamination.
  3. Drain your tank and refill with fresh #2 diesel fuel. I use "Diesel 911" with a biocide to prevent water contamination and bacteria growth in my fuel.
  4. Make certain your fuel oil supply and return lines are clear, not leaking, and the fittings are tight.
I know I'm shotgunning, peppering the target. However, I don't have enough information to zero in on a specific area where the problem could be. Good luck!

Why do my clocks run fast when my Briggs & Stratton 15kw generator is running?


Electric clocks use synchronized motors that run on 60 Hz AC. The power company provides AC power with a precisely regulated frequency of 60 Hz. That means that the voltage jumps back and forth (positive to negative) 60 times per second. Your generator would do the same thing if it could run at precisely 3600 rpm (that's rev's per minute) - but it can't, because the engine is not that precisely controlled. In your case it tends to run (on average) a little fast. I hope you found this helpful. By the way, in Europe 50 Hz is the norm. If you run a clock designed for 50 Hz on 60 Hz power, it will run 20% too fast! Al K

Engine missing


Get a DMM that can measure frequency (Hz), then check that with no load and the idle control set to off the frequency is 61.5 Hz - If it isn't you have to troubleshoot why it isn't and correct it.
You should also check the idle control mechanism if there is one on the generator, with it on the generator should start up at regular speed, then slow to idle speed, then rev back up to regular speed when you draw current from the generator. To check it use the DMM to measure the speed at startup ( should be 61.5 Hz), when it idles down (about 37 Hz), when you're drawing power from any other outlet ( pretty close to 60 Hz). If the generator has idled down and you shut off the idle control it should rev back up immediately.
