Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
What you need to do is to remove the oil pressure switch, and install a manual pressure gauge.
Start the unit.
Oil pressure should be at least 30 psi. If it is not, you either have a bad oil pump, or a worn engine.
If you have good oil pressure, you either have a bad oil switch, or damaged wiring between the switch and controls.
