I have a 15000 watt generac electric start generator. It starts easy but it dies after about 5-10 minutes of running. About 6 months ago it ran out of gas and I forgot to turn the switch off and the battery died I changed the battery. it starts good but dies. I checked the spark and it seams the spark quits before it dies.

This could be a lot of different things, depending on which model of genset it is.

It could be a bad oil pressure switch, a bad SSR, possible a bad carburetor, or a bad vent in the fuel tank.

Check the oil level and make sure it is full.
