Customer Question

Oka frank I've got Oman generator its number is ***** 2132c. When u start it it will run about 10 seconds then dies. It gives u the fault code 15. I look it up and by what it said there is a problem with what it's powering but when u try to restart it after clearing the codes the indicator light flashes while running but it doesn't die it will run till u shut it off. So I unhook the power lines to the trailer from the generator so it wasn't powering it and same exact thing. What are ur that's.

My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
If the indicator light is flashing while it is running, it means that you have put the genset into ERO (Engine Run Only) mode. In ERO, the engine runs, but the genset does not put out any power.
Code 15 is Under Frequency. It means that the engine is running too slow.
A load can cause that, but most of the time it is caused by a bad carburetor.

Oka hank I've replace the carburetor with a new one and the generator does the same thing. I plug a light into the power supply so when it starts to produce power I'd know more. So when it starts to produce per the lights starts to light up then fades
to a low glow then the generator dies.

What fault code is the genset showing?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Fault Code 15
Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.
Connect a frequency meter to the genset, and start it up.
What is the frequency with no load on it?
No apply a small load, and see what the frequency does.
When it shuts down, does it slow down and then shut down, or does it just shut down like someone turned it off?
