Mase Generator Issue
 
I have a Mase 4.0 s generator and it has started giving me an E-87 error, not enough voltage generated, and shutting down after 30 seconds. The starter is fine, fuel is good, and connections are clean. Any advice on possible causes or ideas for diagnostics greatly appreciated!

RPMs are too low, belt is loose/shot or the alternator/generator is going bad.

Thanks - also heard that it could be a bad capacitor ?

I would try the items I listed in order, then the capacitor.
