My generator is about 4 years old with about 18 hrs. Its a great unit till it shuts down for no apparent reason. It has never seen gasoline. Only run on LP gas. It will run for 10 to 45 minutes then shuts off. When I get outside there is no lights on the unit. It restarts right away. Oil level is good.

What size propane tanks are you using? Are they frosting up?

Is there a two-stage pressure regulator feeding it? Was it installed by the propane folks?

If not, it might need one to maintain correct pressure during operation (from a big tank) ... might also depend on its location in the propane plumbing system.

If so, it might possibly be acting up ...
