    Stange thing....i take the door off my 3600 lp onan and it starts and runs fine. Put the door on and after 2 mintues or little less it dies. I restart it and leave the door off and runs fine.
    Things i have tried:
    replaced door with cardboard ....same result
    checked remote wiring pigtail to see it it was hitting or grounding out ....wigggled it with door off nothing!!! still runs
    check rubbing of spark plug ...lol no electric surge on skin
    oil level is fine

    level 3 code
    1 blink and then 4 blinks

    HELP!!!
    thank you in advance

    Sounds like it is running out of air. All engines will do that if starved for air. Check venting of air to Carb.

    Brother set a generator in a cargo trailer to keep it out of weather. After a few minutes, same thing happened to him.

    no, it has been fine ...i think a 14 code is over voltage ...this is with nothing running on it just the gen running without giving power to anything

    someone mentioned that it might be the demand regulater ....the diaphram inside causing it to die. not sure if i believe that....it runs fine with the door off and the cover completely off. i have been blowing a fan on it while the door/cover is off so it doesnt overheat

    ok ,, well lets get down to the nitty gritty on this ,, does it run fine with a load on it ??? door on or off ??? also over frequency does not make sense on the door ,,, does it have a winter summer setting ??? jsut poking here ,, if it does set it to the summer mode ,, although i don't think it will matter ,, since it was working fine before ,, but to let u know i am still cking into it for u ;;; :approve: :approve: :approve:

    im not sure if this one has a summer /winter setting....i love in central fl so kinda hard to tell summer to winter lol. Yes i ran my washing machine in my garage on it and a fan...also put a power circular saw as well....i see it do like it always does with the surge of power and delivering the amount it needs with the little shake like all gens do but then runs fine
