yea you hate to flog a good deal...
but that is part of the costco deal is the good returns...

most others have gone the repair only on power equipment.
until this pandemic event and no replacement parts
it has worked out ok on some things.

Hi all

I have a Firman H07552 generator that is only a season old and worked great last year. This year I put new fuel in, started it up and it will only run for about 5 seconds then shuts down just like some one turned it off, the solid green light then changes to a flashing red light. I have tried it on propane and gas and get the same result. I have confirmed it's got oil and have went as far to unhooked the yellow wire from the oil sensor and it does the same thing, runs and after about 5 seconds then shuts down. Just for fun I took my multimeter and i am getting 4v on the wire the oil sensor plugs in to when the fuel switch is on. While it is running it goes to 5v and once it dies it drops back to 4v. The oil sensor wire has no continuity between the sensor wire and ground. Which I would assume when the oil level gets low or the sensor goes bad you would see continuity between the sensor wire and ground. Any help would be appreciated
same problem. replaced the AVR and now it runs like a champ.
