when the engine sets for a long time the gas can seep bast in to the cylinder and their will be some gas you will need to change the oil and take the spark plug out and air i suggest you squirt a small amount of oil in the cylinder gas in the cylinder can wash out the lube to the rings and cause undo wear and start smoking turn the engine by hand slowly to allow lubing of the rings the gas seepage is most likely caused by a float that's not set correctly you may need to rebuild the carb with a kit around 20 bucks ans easy to do at least the clean it well to remove schlack that gas leaves behind when it dissipates and can cause issues.
replace with fresh gas and run the engine and it will smoke for a couple mins do to the oil in the cylinder remove the spark pug after running a couple mins and clean or replace the engine should be fine following the steps above. hope this helps

Sounds like you may have a stuck float. It is inside a cup that hangs down under the carburator, there should be a nut and a serrated screw adjustment value. Put a empty coffee can under it to catch the gas and remove the nut the cup will fall off into your hand, you will see the float make sure it moves up and down on it's own weight. Sometimes they get old and stick it is held in place by a small pin (don't loose the pin) unscrew the adjustment pin counting how many turns it tales to remove, clean every thing with carberator cleaner, you may have to buy a new gasket for the top of the cup, they are very thin and break easily. Reseat the gasket in the groove it came out of, put the cup back in place and put the nut back on just an-off to make it good and snug, screw the value pin back in place counting the turns so it sits were it was before. Make sure the gas value is open and try to start the engine, at first it will fill the cup with gas then it should start up. If not you may have to disasseble the caberator and clean all the tine little ports, I have one that was so bad I just had to replace the caberator.

To find the correct part on line, first determine the engine model number and code stamped or labeled on the engine fan cover. For example will be Briggs, or Honda etc. Once you determine the Engine brand and model number, you can go to a web address like Jacks small engine, or even ebay or a replacement part or carb kit. May be easier to take the engine information to a mower repair shop in your area for a replacement. The engine on your generator is similar to one used on lawn equipment. Good luck
