Is there any circuit breakers or main cut off switch in the off position? If so start the generator and turn on all circuit breakers or cut off switches.

Most likely it is running too rich air fuel mixture... be sure choke is off (knob all the way in).

If choke is completely off then likely carburetor fuel pump/metering is fouled. Try a fuel treatment, Seafoam (or other). Follow instructions, measure don't guess.

Likely tube needs replaced or tension spring on end of tube is not on or is not positioned correctly.

I would try disconnecting the oil pressure sensor temporarily to isolate that circuit as the possible cause of it shutting down.

Give you some suggestion, hope can be helpful for you.
Here is some basic principles for troubleshooting generator faults:
1. Check outside of generator firstly then inside
In the case of generator failure, the possible fault locations outside the electronic control system should be checked firstly. This can avoid a fault that is not related to the electronic control system, but make complex, time-consuming and laborious checking on the sensors, computers, actuators and circuits of the system. The real fault may be easier to find but can not be found.
2. Code priority
Electronic control system generally has fault self-diagnosis function. When some fault occurs in the electronic control system, the fault self-diagnosis system will immediately monitor the fault, and alarm or prompt the operator through warning lights such as "monitoring engine". At the same time, the fault information is stored in code. For some faults, the fault code should be read according to the method provided by the manufacturer before the fault self-diagnosis system is checked, and the fault location indicated by the code should be checked and eliminated. After the failure code refers to the elimination of the fault, if the engine failure phenomenon has not been eliminated, or no fault code output is started, then the possible fault location of the engine is checked.

check the instruction book on your generator - for the exact steps to follow after this icon appears.

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.
