My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
What is the full model number of the genset, exactly as it is written on the data label?
While it is running, is it running smooth, or does it surge?
When it shuts down, does it just shut down like someone turned it off, or does it run rough before shutting down?
When it shuts down, will it start right back up, or does it have to sit for a while before it will restart?
