A better title of the problem may help. I can help you on how to catch fish but not on how to run the generator


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Are you maybe overloading the generator with a heater drawing too heavily for continuous use. You may try a lower temp setting/draw on gen. Less heat may require more peppermint schnapps in your hot choc, when -25.

What is the power rating? Surge rating? what are you running?

Is it running at idle? Could be the carburetor icing up. Although this would be a longshot after it has warmed up.

Then +1 for fuel venting and oil level.
