Yes, try to bypass oil sensor to evaluate problem. Defective oil sensors cause a lot of problems.

SOURCE: onan 4000 start good runs only ten minutsand shuts down,starts up

First locate the oil pressure switch and see if you can bypass it,then see if it runs. If not check the fuel filter and fuel pump,make sure solonoid for fuel pump is kicking on.

SOURCE: I have a Coleman Powermate pm0545007 generator

there should not be pinched wires...

if you mean "how do I bypass the low oil SENSOR" then the answer is to just disconnect it and tape up the end or snip it off in a location where it won't ground out...the way these engines kill the spark is by grounding the cdi coil wire...so fix that pinched wire and youre probably good to go...dont disconnect the low oil sensor unless its causing trouble....having low oil protection is good and might save you from blowing an engine

Valve sticks. Runs for less than a minute and then shuts down.


Ed,

We would love to help you out!

First,check the oil level is to the very top of the filler as these have an automatic shut off if the oil gets too low. They like to be filled to the very top of the filler hole. Try running it, if it still shuts down let us know and we will assign an Engineer to your case. :)

Runs but shuts off automatac


check the oil, most of these have a low oil shut down. If it's full make sure it's sitting level while running. If it still shuts down and is full of oil and level, bypass the low oil shutoff and see if it stays running.

Yamaha 6500 watt diesel runs but usually shuts


First thing to monitor is the fuel solenoid power. See if it is the thing that goess away to cause shutdown.

Tracing this back there is only a few things that control this: The battery, the low oil shutdown switch, and the run switch, and associated wiring.

If I were to ventture a guess, I would put money on the low oil shutdown switch.

Yamaha ef 2400is starting


The manual contains a schematic which does not show a heat sensor. You need to narrow it down to a fuel or spark problem. The easiest to check is spark. If you do not have spark, it could be the plug, wire, oil level sensor, magneto, coil or TCI module. If you have spark, then it is likely a fuel problem. Open drain and see if fuel is getting to the bowl. If not, check tank, valve and lines. If yes, it must be the carburator. Good luck.

Generator shutting down after 1.5 of run time


I had the same problem with a simular generator. I took it to a repair shop who told me it was the "low oil sensor". They fixed it and it lasted another 1.5 hours. I told my-self I would monitor the oil and cut the "low oil sensor" electronic line. It has laster 12 years as a backup generator running at least 200 hours per year. I still have it but have switched to a larger generator. If you, or whoever uses it, can watch the oil level, then cut this line, it will be fine. This sensor is for those who are not able to measure oil level !!!
