Gereator fixed!

Here is what happend...

Temperture sensor was failing and turning off the generator. After having it pulled out the mechanic replaced the sensor which my after marked warranty paid for!!

I then contracted and paid the mechanic to replace all hoses, belts, clamps etc and re-do the 7 year old exhaust while the generator was out of the box! Ran it for several hours rolling and stopped, 97 degree weather, two ACs running, all good!

Thanks,

Dave

I know it has been a long time since your posted issues, but I am wondering if my problem is the same... My generator will run all day with a light load on it. When I turn on the heat pumps to run the a/c, it will run for about 5 minutes and then shut down. I can restart it immediately and it will run for about 5 minutes and shut down..... I can repeat this procedure indefinitely... point being, that it will run each time for the full 5+ minutes, even though it just shut down a few seconds prior. Could it really be a temp sensor?

Also, if SRYDVE can provide more info on whether or not he fixed it and how he fixed it... that would be great.

thanks,

Tom

As far as I know my problem is fixed but to be fair I only did a test run after the replacement and haven't had occasion to use the generator since. Your problem is quite a bit different than ours so I doubt it is the sensor. If you want to check it anyway you need to remove the top cover and to get the top cover off I also removed the front cover, it's a lot of bolts and I was glad to have the air rachet. Once you have it off the wire going to the temp sensor is on the back side of the valve cover. You can't see the sensor, but you can feel it, I was able to thread the sensor out and the new one in without actually seeing what I was doing. A mirror should work if you want to see it.You don't have to remove the sensor to check it, just unplug it and see if your problem remains or goes away. It should work fine without it plugged in but you will loose the protection it provides so be sure to plug it back in if it's not the problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Mine would shut down as soon as it got hot 2-3 minutes. I dont think your problem is the same, unless the increased load is causing over heating followed by shut down. If that is true, the heat sensor switch is doing its job and something else is causing the build up of heat. I also did a complete service on the hoses and cooling system.
