If the oil is dirty, it will not pump properly. I recently had this problem, once I changed the oil it was good to go.

Motorcycle oil JASO MA certified 10w-40 or 20w-50. Don't use any oil that is Energy Conserving it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears.

SOURCE: I have a powermate 5500

If the unit has a low oil shut down make sure the oil if filled to the proper full level.
If you have the proper level then you can locate the low oil shut down wire and remove the wire to test and see if the unit will run.

If the unit runs with the wire off then you either have low oil or a bad oil sending unit.
