I purchased this generator within the past two years so far it has been great. I use it for a hunting camp to power a well pump,and some light electricity when needed. There are times when we have work parties that require running the gen for long periods of time no matter how we've used it it runs fine. We have 480 hours on it and I have changed the oil at 50 hours, and evey 100 hours since then.I've cleaned the air filter also. This past weekend one member was running the gen and after 6-7 hours he noticed the lights beginning to dim, as if the gen was running out of gas, but when he went out to check the gen it was running and wasn't out of gas but the lights were dimming and brightening, When I checked it the next day sure enough it was doing the same thing so I checked the voltage coming in and saw 100 Volts and flucuating. I next went to the gen itself to check, to eliminate the breaker, I got the same readings at the gen outlets, both 120v, and 250 outlets. Any ideas? I believe we lost one leg of the output phase. Any help or direction would be appreciated. Thanks, Ray
