Standby generator problem


My Generac generator gives a "low oil" signal & shuts down. I have changed oil & filter, replaced sending unit. When resetting & running in 'manual", it will run for 5 min, then again for 10 min before shutting down. It will run continously if I set it on "manual" on third or fourth try. Engine not knocking or noisy. It has to be in electrics or electronics, maybe?

Does that unit have an electronic control board? I'd contact Generac for their input. If the sensor is bad it woulnd't run....or basically shouldn't start at any setting manual or auto.
