Cummins EC30 Control

My EC30 control starts my Onan Quiet Diesel 8kw generator fine on "Auto On".
However, the generator cycles off after about 10 minutes, and then restarts within 30 seconds...runs okay for about 15 min. then is off again for 30 secs. and then back on for a longer stretch of time, and then off again and restarting over and over for about an hour. Has anyone out there had a similar problem?
Any suggestions on what to do to correct the problem?

what happens when you manually start and let the generator run? What parameters do you have specified in the "Auto Run"?

Sounds like the settings. That or something is calling sending the command to start. AC's cycling maybe?

Cummins EC30 Control

Mine will start and stop whenever either an AC unit is calling for power OR the battery voltages reach a low or charged state. Sounds like yours is getting start and stop "signals" that are not set far enough apart, causing the too frequent starts and stops. As others have said, check your voltage and t-stat settings.
