Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Do you have a voltmeter to check the charging system? The engine has a stator/alternator under r the flywheel and it comes out to a voltage regulator/rectifier. which changes the AC volts to DC volts to charge the battery. What is the engine model number?

I do not have that here. I am a wood worker more so then mechanic. but atleast I know where to look a starting point
cheers

Usually the problem is the voltage regulator. So you could try a new regulator, it will be identified by the engine model number.
