Hello!
My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
Try this for me.
Remove the air filter.
Start the genset and let it run until it shuts down.
Wehn it shuts down, immediately try to restart it by spraying in some carb cleaner. Do not use startign fluid.
Will it start on the carb cleaner?
