Ok.

I am a certified Generac technician, so I will be able to help.

According to your serial number, the model number of this unit is(###) ###-#### The 0E6219 is only a part number to something.

What kind of time frame is this starting/stopping following? Starting up and running for how long before it shuts off? Once it stops, how long before it starts itself again?

Have you tried to reset the controller?
