Similarly, why does my generator keeps shutting off? If the oil level in your generator is too low, you can cause permanent engine damage by running it without enough oil. If that valve is left in the off position, the generator will run for a few minutes and then it will suddenly stop running. This is because the carburetor isn't getting any gas.
Beside this, why is my generator surging?
