Question about Kipor Electrical Supplies
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.

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.

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.

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 the oil pressure switch

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
