I have a &S 8000 watt electric start generator with about 30

Customer Question

Hi -- I have a B&S 8000 watt electric start generator with about 30 hours on it. I now have an issue I think. Hopefully you might be able to point me in the right direction. I will explain as best I can what has happened.
1) it was running steady for 3 days 8 hrs day but on the fourth i ran it out of fuel(my bad)
2) the weather went cold overnight (-15) and with 120kmh winds.
3) next morning I started it but it ran for abt. 2 minutes and died. Thought it might have frozen line so added a bottle of gas line antifreeze.
4) Let it sit overnight and again it started up but only ran for 1 minute and quit.tried several times with the same results.
5) thought maybe the air filter was iced up also checked oil level - both ok.
Any suggestions would be appreciated as i am fresh out
Thanks and Regards
