Last summer I had a problem with the generator shutting off. I replaced the fuel pump, as the dealer said it was bad. But my question is, does anyone have an idea on how to get air circulating through the gen. compartment as it is air cooled. I think this might help. Thanks
The generator is supposed to be self cooling. It has a fan attached to the top of the crankshaft that brings air in through the vent slots at the sides of the removable cover and directs it down across the unit exhausting it at the bottom. It's important that the access cover be properly installed. If it isn't the cooling air will escape through the opening and not be directed across the engine and generator.
Another thing to check for is to be sure there is no debris or animal nests in the open ports in the generator base. Any interference will limit the air flow and affect the cooling
