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!

Re: Mase Generator Issue

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

Re: Mase Generator Issue

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