It is a diesel generator no spark plug.

Hi

Thank you for that

was not sure Diesel or gas

should have asked

next thing to do is , remove a injector, see if it turns over

did this just happen or shut down while running

let me know

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I did pull the injector and put wd-40 in for 2 weeks still nothing. The generator was like this when I bought it.Oil looks fine and clean under valve cover.

Thank you for that

Sounds to me that the engine is locked up

or the Generator is frozen, would have to split them to see which one

I hope this helped you
