Hello, it could be the fuel (old gas) or it sat a while and the carb needs removed and cleaned. Remove carb and loosen bowl drain screw to empty carb. Remove the 10 mm head bolt in center of carb, unscrew the main jet in the center and shake out the nozzle and poke a wire through every hole.

Here is a shop annual for a similar model, see page 46 for identification of parts. https://1drv.ms/b/s!AqvmPfzg3ifPjDTxi703vKOBOcm1

Your answer was pretty useless to me. Telling me to remove and clean a carburetor without giving guidance on how to do even get to, let alone how to remove it was of no value

Did you click on the shop manual link above that I sent with response?

I saw the manual and the carb schematic and info but that doesn't tell how to get it out in order to take the steps you outlined. I started to disassemble it but stopped. I'm on a boat and can't lose this generator completely.

Did you look at the whole manual, especially Section 5 on the carb disassembly and repair? The main jet and nozzle need removed and a fine wire poked through all the holes. The manual explains much better than I could. If the info I provided does not help you let me know and I will opt out so another can try.

Were you able too remove and clean the carb?
