I have a Generac model 0052430 16KV after it runs for 3 days it is low on oil.

Also at times the 15 Amp blows?

It also cranks a lot before it starts.

You should be shutting it down every 24 hours to check and replenish the oil.
Some noticeable oil consumption in 3 days running is typical for a small engine.

fred g, oil consumption for a high speed air cooled engine is not out of the ordinary. If you change the oil and filter on a regular basis it will help with keeping the lubricity and seal the rings better than dirty oil. Also depending on the environment you could use a 10w- 30 or straight 30 wieght to help with control but in cold weather stay with 5w-30. Poor starting could be valve lash in need of adjustment, or the fuel supply system at incorrect pressure, fuse blowing issues I have seen the battery charger on it's last leg and overcharging or shorting.
