Hello, can someone please explain why my 6800W portable generator will NOT run a Mag 12 pump, but WILL run a Mag 9.5?

The generator is connected to the house wiring via transfer switch. The gen runs just about everything thats not 220. a LED TV, pure sin wave 1000W battery back-up, well pump but NOT a Mag 12 :(

Thanks for your help.

These don't draw too much, the MD12 only takes 110 Watts. I'd inquire to the manufacturer ( as to what they think the problem might be.
