Make sure that you have enough gasoline in the tank.The fuel pick-up tube is positioned way up from the bottom of the bottom of the tank(to prevent running the tank dry with the generator).Most rigs will require at least 1/4 tank or more to run the generator.Mine quits just under 1/2 tank.

i will crawl underneath and look for kinked lines or rotten hoses that might cause a leak and I will also fill both tanks so that I know that they are full

will let you know what happens

Another thing that can cause this in some older gensets is the low oil sensor. But usually, that will cause a short run, then a shutdown.

But you should check your oil level, just to be sure.
