Customer Question

I have an MGE 4000, recently when I went to use it it started fine, I plugged in my camper, turned the air conditioning on and about 2 minutes later the generator died.I have cleaned the carb and verified oil (for sensor) and it still behaves the same.

When it was running, was it running smoothly, or was it surging?

When it quit, did it just shut off like someone turned it off, or did it struggle first?

Did it start right back up, or did it have to sit for a while before it would restart?
