Do you maybe have regular gas in it? Both Canadian and US regular gas now have ethanol in them and if the generator has sat for 2 weeks or longer then the gas is bad.Remove the gas tank and look inside. You will probably see an off-color blob floating around in the bottom. That is our wonderful environment friendly ethanol doing what it does best. Drain the tank and refill with premium. Restart the engine and do what you need to keep it running for about 5 minutes. If it has the plunger primer for cold start, use it every time the engine starts to die, 2-3 pumps each time. If not dribble a little gas into the breather to keep it going. After about 5 minutes it should start running on it's own. If not you will likely have to remove the carb and get the rubber seals replaced. Ethanol and rubber don't mix well.
After this keep premium gas in all your small engines. It doesn't separate. If you want to keep using regular gas then there are additives in the after market that will help keep it from separating. Hope this helps.
