It sounds like it is starving for fuel. You probably need to rebuild the carb.

Miller Legend welder. Onan engine starts and runs a few minutes then dies. Why won't it restart for 5 minutes?


Some engines have a low oil cutoff switch. If the oil level drops to a certain point it kills the engine. Your oil level may be close enough that after starting and running for a little bit the level drops enough to kill the motor. After sitting for awhile the level rises enough to allow the engine to run again check the level and add oil if necessary.
Hope this helps.

Make sure the gas is fresh. Also, take off the carb bowl and look for signs of gumming. If there is gooey stuff in the bowl, then the carb needs to be cleaned.

Why the engine starts, runs about 5 second, dies and then won't start, if you wait 10 minutes it starts and runs fine, this happens once every few weeks/months or twice in one day, no set pattern. hav


I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? What testing have you done? Make sure battery has a full charge?
When the problem is ongoing, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems.

Is this an older machine ? If so try finding the points its usualy on the front lower part of the engine behind the cover, if you see that then it needs its condensor replaced, lookes like a round battery.

If this is newer or you can also try changing the spark plug sometimes they heat up and fail.
