    Default Generator

    hi all

    i have at home an OES generator 2.2k. the generator starts on petrol only as it doesnt start on gas. then when converted to gas it shuts down after 5-15 minutes. the shutdown time varies and very few times it runs for few hours without shutting down. it was serviced few months ago with plugs, oil etc. the load on the generator is just few fans n energy savers. i have two main queries:

    • any diagnosis n repair on the above issue.
    • 2ndly due to less gas presure instead of gas from line, if i can attach a gas cylinder to it for better gas pressure and in turn keep nonstop run on gas. any safety issue regarding use of gas cylinder near generator. how much run time can a cylinder give with few fans n savers



    thanx n regards

    It could be that you need to adjust its tappets.
    You can safely attach cylinder to it but you would need a regulator for it.
