Considering events, it could be:
1. Overloaded.
2. Clogged cooling/venting system.
3. Clogged Water filer -> Not unlikely if the unit sits unused for long
periods of time.
4. Valves too tight.

Who knew I could put that deisel mechanic knowledge to work again.

Unnamed Administration sources reported that Sean Donelan said:


But I would like to point out, no one regularly runs their
generators for 48+ hours as part of a normal test.  In addition,
most standby generators are fitted only for "limited" duration
runs.  You should expect problems during any extended run of a
generator plant.  I'm a bit surprised that 25 Broadway and
32 Old Slip are the only ones we've heard about.

Until I know a bit more about what happened, I can't say
whether any alternative design could have performed better.

Hell yes. "Standby service" is a way different set of rating
than "24x7"..... 


(I'm sorry to guess if it still overheats, a blown headgasket
or cracked head are real possibilities...)
