I don't know. see if there is a stop switch that is still in the 'off' position. using a small electric meter, test to see if there is power coming to the generator's starter. if all is well, you may need to have the starter repaired or replaced. on some
motors, a gentle tap on the starter sometimes allows motors to run again. be gentle.

I had the same problem. My problem was the oil sensor. Unplug the oil sensor wite and see if it starts. If it does the order a new one, they are about 12 bucks

shut fuel off at tank, pull fuel line off carb ,slowly turn on fuel if fuel flows freely(real good stream)your carb needs replacement(cant buy parts to rebuild EPA) if fuel just barely trickles out . there is a screen in the fuel tank that is probably clogged

Test the solinoid with an ohms meter and if the circuit is open replace the solinoid.

SOURCE: 5500 watt generator won't start.

With starting fluid, it runs, so this means spark and compression and valves closing properly. You mention gas flow, so gasolene is getting to the carb. This would then leave the problem being in the carb if indeed fuel is present at the carb. If you take apart the carb right now, is there fuel in the bowel? Or, remove the bottom screw on the carb, does gas flow out? Does it flow continuously or does it quit? This will indicate if the float valve is indeed opening. The only thing if you have fuel in the bowel and no start, even with the choke closed, is that the main jet must be plugged. Had the unit been sitting for quite a while with gasolene in it? Gas can "varnish" after a few months and this can cause plugging of the jets and other passages. How old is the gas in the unit? Old gas won't burn in the engine and this can also be a problem. Drain the tank, and carb, put some new gas in the unit and try it. You might have to take the carb apart again and use some carb cleaner to blow the **** out of all the carb passages. This should get it going again. Now, most important, when you get it running again, you need to adjust the engine speed so that you do not burn out any electrical equipment. If you have access to a frequency meter, plug it into the 120 volt outlet on the generator and adjust the speed so that the frequency with no load is 62 - 63 hz. This will allow the generator to drop to 60 hz under load. The adjustment is a 5/16 nut, right side of the upper engine, facing you.
