Here is that SCREENSHOT then.

When it's night and when the solar panels don't work, the steam engines are on for a few seconds, but I want them to run everytime, but they doesn't. Is it possible to make them run for ever?

Steam engines only produce as much electricity as required. That is what is going on. If your factory was consuming more power, the steam engines would provide more power.

Electricity has a priority.

#1 is Solar Panels
#2 is Steam Engines
#3 is Accumulators


If you consume less electricity than your solar power can produce your steam engines won't run. The steam engines turn on at night because you have no sunlight so your solar panels don't produce electricty.
