Expert:  Wire-it-Up replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information.
Can you give me more details about the problem?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The engine is hard to start. When runs It is only for a few seconds & grey smoke come out exhaust. The generator is new as only maybe 3 yrs Have never used but to start every few months to keep it active Needed it last week & it would not run. Last started it about a month ago for routine test run & ran ok for about 1/2 hour I emptied tank of has & put fresh has. & changed oil just to see

Hi John. Since this is more of an engine problem than an electrical problem, I'm going to move your question to a more appropriate category. A small engine expert should pick it up shortly. Thank you.
